Kanye West teams up with MTV for a new show titled "Homecoming"

Kanye West teams up with MTV's Sway for a special "Choose or Loose" one hour show based on Iraq's veterans. Kanye will visit the homes of these veterans and surprise them with some goodies and also talk to them about their experience in Iraq. Kanye told MTV  “There are hundreds of veterans out there who are falling through the cracks,” West said in the statement. “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.” You might be asking yourself why did MTV choose Kanye? Well according to MTV  “In conversations with veterans over the last year, it became clear that Kanye’s music is used by soldiers in Iraq as a way of connecting to home,” Executive VP for MTV News & Production Dave Sirulnick said. “Once these veterans return home, their stories are so moving that you can’t help but want to do the right thing and help them out.” 

“Choose or Lose & Kanye West Present: Homecoming” airs Monday (July 28) at 10 PM.
