The only problem is, the American Academy of Art said this is not true and the Art Institute gave a similar statement to several websites.

In another tweet Kanye said he'd be doing a Chicago Comedy Jam, and that he'd restore the Regal Theater.
We’re doing Chicago Comedy Jam. We’re going to restore the Regal Theatre— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 10, 2018
It was not clear if Kanye was referring to the original Regal Theater in the city's Grand Boulevard neighborhood, which currently houses the Harold Washington Cultural Center, or the Avalon Regal Theater in the city's South Chicago neighborhood.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported that the entrepreneur who purchased the theater out of foreclosure in 2014 has been trying to raise money to restore it.
Kanye also tweeted that he would be putting a Yeezy office in Chicago, but offered no further details. Yeezy is the rapper's line of apparel and footwear.
