It has been years since Ye is walking the walk, and his actions are speaking louder than words. Five hours ago, YouTube channel HipsterPhister with the help of Ye Media Cord, got back a lost MTV documentary featuring Ye. Entitled ‘Homecoming’, the footage was recorded by MTV’s Choose or Lose and the 'Vultures' rapper himself. To hear the stories of recently returned Iraq war veterans, Ye and MTV VJ Sway Calloway visited their homes in an hour-long documentary that dates back to 2008. 

The veterans shared their experiences of serving in the war and their struggles with re-acclimating to civilian life. In their conversations, the veterans also revealed how Ye’s music has been a source of comfort and connection to home for them. By listening to their stories, Ye and Calloway aimed to shed light on the challenges faced by those who have served in the military and raise awareness about the importance of supporting their transition back to civilian life.

The rapper has been vocal about geopolitics and humanitarian issues, using his platform to raise awareness and spark conversations. He has criticized the handling of various global crises, such as the conflict in Ukraine, and supported Palestine, advocating for peace in the war-torn Gaza Strip. Ye’s music has also addressed social and political issues, like racism and mental health, inspiring fans to take action and make a positive impact.

Notably, Ye has been deeply involved in humanitarian efforts, including supporting Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign fundraiser alongside his family. During 'A Concert for Hurricane Relief' in 2005, he went off script, passionately expressing his concerns about the disproportionate struggles faced by the Black community in a storm's aftermath. Standing alongside Mike Myers, he delivered a historic speech that would become a defining moment in his career.
