Earlier this month, Kim Kardashian relayed the story of how Kanye West once used his phone call from jail to order Chinese takeout. When scholars look back at this defining moment, not to mention some questionable lyrics in Yeezus, they’ll no doubt attribute it to his time living in China.
Back in 1987, a 10-year-old Kanye lived in China with his mother, Donda, while she taught at Nanjing University as part of an exchange program. A photo of Kanye’s time there surfaced online late last year. Today, we get another. To quote one Redditor, “What she order? Chicken chow mein.”
