Really? Kanye West Brings Sunday Service to Howard University [Photos + Video]

Kanye West brought his Sunday Service to one of the nation’s leading HBCUs — Howard University.

The homecoming performance was announced overnight and was completely sold out before the 8am show.

via TMZ:

Grammy-award winning R&B singer Tony Williams led the service, which was complete with a brass band and a choir.

The performance dovetailed with Howard’s homecoming, called Yardfest. The University did not announce Kanye’s appearance until hours before the event, but that was enough time for students and others to swarm to the quad for the service.

Kanye’s making the short trek later today to George Washington University in D.C., where another Sunday Service will go down.

There was criticism of Kanye’s appearance at Howard, presumably for the rapper’s support of Trump. Greg Carr, the chairman of Howard’s Dept. of Afro-American Studies, wrote, “If @kanyewest is indeed at #HowardU this morning, send him to the third floor of the Founder’s Library after he’s done. I have some books for him.”

It’s unclear if Kanye stuck around for a little education — but he certainly should have. As a matter of fact, with Kim spending so much time in DC fighting for criminal justice reform, maybe the family can relocate for a semester or two so Kanye can enroll full-time.
