While in Chicago for a stop on the “Watch The Throne Tour,” Kanye West took longtime industry friend Jay-Z for a stroll through his hometown.
“Always knew it was gonna happen like this,” said Kanye, as he returned to the neighborhood where he grew up. “Where I’m at right now is where I’m at when I was like four years old.”
Via a video piece for VOYR, Ye takes Hov to childhood home on the Southside of Chicago and reflects on some of the fond memories, while greeting and taking photos with the locals.
The clip also features spoken word from Chi-town’s Malik Yusef, footage from the Chicago performance, and a backstage conversation between Kanye and famed director Spike Lee.
