Kanye West is looking to teach the world and he’s starting with the Donda Academy. That site was very popular today, because the influx of applications shut the site down.

Ye has plans for an extensive and diverse portfolio for his Donda brand. He wants music, electronics, and he’s now starting a prep school. Sadly, only a select few will get in and the huge surge of people logging on to try their luck caused a huge problem with the site.

West wants to build a high school basketball team at Donda Academy, his new private prep school in Simi Valley, California. Obviously, a ton of people want to apply.

The Donda.World website is working now, but that wasn’t the case when so many people tried to register at the same time. It’s interesting that Kanye’s servers buckled under the pressure, but that’s the kind of power he commands.


It’s unknown how many people it took to crash Ye’s website. We’re betting it was a legit system failure and not some DDoS attack from one of his competitors.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
