Kanye West is building 'Star Wars'-themed low income houses

  /  07.10.2019

Kanye West is a man with a plan.

According to Forbes‘ latest cover story, which was published yesterday (July 9), the Chicago rapper has begun building low-income homes. The homes are inspired by the construction of houses in Tatooine, a city from the fictional Star Wars saga. Mr. West will market the structures as low-income housing along with other homes that are similar to spaceship constructions.

The media source also explained that ‘Ye’s brand, YEEZY, is expected to reach $1.5 billion in sales by the end of the year. This is a result of Forbes‘ estimation with the YEEZY Boost 350 V3 model that is currently on the way. This comes as no surprise since West snagged the No. 3 slot on Forbes‘ Celebrity 100 list.

Throughout their conversation, West reflected on his financial growth. He recalled asking Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to invest $1 billion in his company. “I’m just blessed through the grace of God to go from tweeting at Mark Zuckerberg [for money],” he said. “People wondered, ‘Why did you tweet at Mark Zuckerberg?’ And I was like, ‘Hey, I heard he was looking for aliens.’”

Kim Kardashian-West shared on Twitter how proud she is of her husband.

“I watch how hard he works as he puts his soul into every idea & product that he creates. It’s of no surprise to anyone who works w Kanye that he has been able to turn millions of $ in debt into a billion dollar empire in only 4 years – 100% on his own terms while owning it 100%,” she wrote on Twitter.

Kim said that to see the father of her four children work relentlessly inspires her as well.

“He inspires me every single day and I’m so happy that he is getting the recognition and credit that he deserves. @Forbes,” Kim wrote.
