Kanye West wants to build 'Star Wars'-inspired low-income housing

Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 Oxford Tan

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.

But in stark contrast, ever since 2013, when the rapper moved his brand from Nike to Adidas, he struck what Forbes characterizes as an "unprecedented deal" for 15 percent royalty on wholesale, plus a marketing fee.

If you're both a Star Wars fans and in need of low-income housing, Kanye West may be working on the solution for you. Forty-two years later, one of the world's most successful pop musicians and polymaths envisions a world where homelessness is combated by some of the same architecture featured in George Lucas's 1977's hit "Star Wars - A New Hope". The answer is in Star Wars particularly Luke Skywalker's childhood home. He has also taken the lead with the construction of this STAR WARS inspired project by leaving notes for the architects on how to make these Tatooine replica homes flawless to live in.

But, Correio de Manha suggest that the Premier League heavyweights are yet to present a formal bid for the Portuguese worldwide . The Portuguese is believed to be one of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's main targets yet a transfer is struggling to be completed.

While his ideas seem far-fetched and even insane to some, it seems that Kanye's creative process has brought him success.

West brought Greenburg to "a trio of structures that look like the skeletons of wooden spaceships" while taking a tour of his land in LA. "He tells me they could be used as living spaces for the homeless, perhaps sunk into the ground with light filtering in through the top". "My mom took me to see the movie when I was really young and the shapes and the color palette and the general mood of the film have always been a big inspiration for Yeezy".

West is personally involved in the project, overseeing a team that is putting together the designs for the low cost homes.
