Kanye West Building 'Star Wars'-Inspired Houses For The Homeless

Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2

Among all the subjects mentioned in his very good interview with Forbes, Kanye West talked about a project that seems insane but is already well advanced.

Now, the rapper shares that he's only getting started with regards to his creative ventures.

The brutalist igloo-design used in George Lucas 1977 film Star Wars: A New Hope is located in the middle of the Tunisian desert.

Elsewhere in the Forbes piece, the rapper reflects on the huge success of his Yeezy sneaker line, which included 2012's Air Yeezy II release: "It was the first shoe to have the same level of impact as an Air Jordan".


One of the more impressive parts of the line, however, is the agreement West struck in 2013 to move Yeezy from Nike to Adidas.

"I would say [it's] like a minimal monastery", she says in the video, which shows off numerous mansion's large, sparsely decorated rooms. And as detailed in a recent interview conducted by Forbes (via MovieWeb), it seems like West has drawn inspiration from an unlikely source: the world of Star Wars.

She explained that Kanye and his collaborators created eight prototypes before settling on this one, and demonstrated how it works. Where is he drawing the inspiration for these low-priced homes? Recounting a midnight Lamborghini ride with the star into a private plot, the editor writes, "I follow him up a dirt path deeper into the woods for several minutes until he stops at a clearing and looks up, wordless".

While his ideas seem far-fetched and even insane to some, it seems that Kanye's creative process has brought him success. And there's a lot of people that have been called that "C' word that have ended up on this cover".
