Concordia University in Montreal will offer a full course inspired by rapper Kanye West.
The news was announced by Yassin “Narcy” Alsalman, who will lead the course, earlier this week.
“I will be teaching first class fully @kanyewest at college level, all praises due,” he wrote in an Instagram post.
“I want to bring something new and fresh to students. An opportunity to bring more amazing guests to college and discuss the world through the lens of one of the most influential artists of our generation.
The artist and teacher added, “This class isn’t just about Kanye. It’s about community, creativity, accountability, responsibility, fame and sanity, dreams and nightmares – and most importantly, self-actualization.
According to Alsalman’s post, the course will analyze Ye’s art, design, music, celebrity lives, and cultural impacts in the information age.
“Using Kanye’s albums as cultural, artistic and personal goals; this class investigates the evolution of his genius and explores the concept of ‘Kanyetive Dissonance’ – the unique, complex and controversial nature and context of all of Kanye’s work and impact,” the post said.
The course will be available to a limited number of fine arts students.
Ye recently released his new album 2 on his Stem Player, receiving mixed to negative reviews.
The rapper has also publicly argued with Pete Davidson, the boyfriend of his ex-wife Kim Kardashian.
