Professor West? Kanye Is Teaching Fashion At An LA Trade School For Community Service

Kanye West is treating students at The Los Angeles Trade Technical College to lessons from the self-adulating king of fashion (his strongest suit, of course). After being sentenced to 24 months of probation and 250 hours of community service, the man who brought the leather jogger to Fendi is finally paying his dues. He's reportedly been teaching classes there since June, but the picture above is the first we've actually seen of Professor West, stepping down from Mt. Yeezus to lead the class.

The syllabus seems poised to cover and explain the utility of the jogger pant, public ranting, masters of industry, Michael Jackson and how to make your head look like a city bike lane. In all seriousness, could you imagine what's happening in that classroom? And shouldn't there be a strict no cell policy if he's going to be divulging the intimate details of how he took over the fashion industry? All we can hope for is that the model student who put this photo up breaks to the world the very first time Ye loses his shit with the class. To that fine scholar, we will always be in debt. No word yet on whether he'll be taking his fashion lecture to the road, but we'll be sure to keep you posted.
