Kanye goes to Iraq t0 help out troops

    Taking a break from angry blog post writing, Kanye West has been working towards a much more productive goal: supporting soldiers in Iraq with more than just empty words. Here’s there now filming a documentary for MTV titled "Choose Or Lose & Kanye West Present: Homecoming." Kanye will actually be giving troops "gifts," ranging from college tuition payments, clearing their debts or paying their rent. 

     

    Says West, “There are hundreds of veterans out there who are falling through the cracks. They make the ultimate sacrifices for us by laying down their lives, but it seems like a lot of them just get forgotten about…I know my music inspires and helps a lot of people but you can always do more. I teamed up with MTV and took the opportunity to share the spotlight with these veterans and hear their stories."

     

    This is a more than welcome act of generosity for someone who had been acting rather selfish lately. The documentary premieres on MTV on July 28 at 10 p.m. EST
