Taking to Twitter, the divisive artist announced some big plans he has for the Windy City. Kanye kicked up a series of tweet announcements by noting plans for another YEEZY studio in Chicago. Joining the YEEZY locations in New York, London, and Wyoming, the office will surely create some new opportunities for a small group of young creatives. Kanye then went on to announce plans to teach a course at the Art Institute of Chicago and the American Academy of Art, along with plans to put on the Chicago Comedy Jam and a revival of the iconic Regal Theatre.
