Kanye West’s New MTV Show
Hes met Iraq war veterans with MTV News man Sway
Kanye West and MTV News have teamed up for a special documentary featuring the rapper meeting soldiers returning home from the Iraq war. In Choose or Lose & Kanye West Present: Homecoming the Flashing Lights star and our own host Sway will surprise the soldiers. The veterans will tell their stories from Iraq to MTV and well find out about their experiences when they come back. West told us: 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. I went to their homes to listen and get their firsthand experiences. I wanted to hear their stories." On behalf of MTV and the Dr. Donda West Foundation- Sway and West gave each veteran a life-changing gift, from paying off their debts to taking care of their rent or tuition.
