Kanye West is working with officials in Los Angeles to solve the issue of homelessness in the city, according to a TMZ report.
The Jesus is King emcee met up with Los Angeles Mission CEO Reverend Troy Vaughn and charitable organizations to talk about ways they could help fight the problem. He ultimately wants to feed the homeless, assist them with “education, jobs and housing” and bring his Sunday Service choir to Skid Row for some healing and inspirational music.
Ye has long fought against the homelessness problem in California. In 2019, he started to develop the Yeezy Home project, his own housing development, on his property in Calabasas, but neighbors complained that there was too much noise and called on officials to put a stop to the home. The project was demolished after inspectors learned that the rapper had built the houses without a permit.
The following year, the Chicago native was spotted giving a homeless veteran money on an L.A. freeway. He also announced his candidacy for president of the U.S. and gave fans an update on his plans, revealing photos of the Star Wars-inspired dome shelters he was creating in the city as well as his plans to cure homelessness and hunger.
“We will cure hunger. There are people sleeping in parking lots,” West previously tweeted of his presidential plans. “We as a people will heal. We will insure [sic] the well-being of each other.”
“I was just speaking with someone that told me their life story and they used to be homeless. We must and will cure homelessness and hunger. We have the capability as a species,” he continued. “I hear people say … this person is cool and this person is not cool… people are cool… man has never invented anything as awesome as an actual person but sometimes we value the objects we create over life itself.”
