According to Spin, the 'Yeezus' rapper gave a surprise talk at the prestigious US university to discuss his design company DONDA.

He told students at Havard's Graduate School Of Design: "I really do believe that the world can be saved through design, and everything needs to actually be 'architected.' And this is the reason why even some of the first DONDA employees were architects that started designing t-shirts instead of buildings. But just to see the work actually be actualised.

"I believe that utopia is actually possible," he added. "But we're led by the least noble, the least dignified, the least tasteful, the dumbest, and the most political."

Earlier this week (November 16), Kanye West resumed his 'Yeezus' tour in Philadelphia. He had previously been forced to cancel a run of dates after a truck carrying a 60-foot circular LED screen and custom-made video truss crashed on October 30, destroying the stage equipment.

West's 'Yeezus' tour began in Seattle, Washington on October 19. His first solo tour in five years, it will now run until December 23, taking in shows across North America.
