After dropping the hardest-hitting gospel album of the year, Kanye West jumped straight back into focusing on his Yeezy line of shoes – kind of.
The 42-year-old rapper appeared at Fast Company’s Innovation Festival to talk about the material his controversial Crocs-looking shoes are made of and his plans to move the headquarters to Wyoming.
Along with Yeezy shoe designer Steve Smith and writer Mark Wilson, Kanye took the stage to be the businessman he is and talked about everything but the shoes.
He clearly didn’t get the memo he was supposed to discuss the Yeezy line, so the Trump-supporter went straight to saying: ‘Own your power. Your power is not to just vote Democrat for the rest of our lives. That’s not the power.’
Uh, thanks Kanye, so back to talking about the shoes?
He then changed the topic to Rodney Reed, the inmate Kim is trying to free.
‘All the evidence says this guy didn’t do it, and he’s supposed to be executed in 30 days,’ he said. ‘And all the celebrity blacks will tweet about it. But the question is, will they stop playing basketball for a week to make sure this innocent man gets out?’
He finally shared that the new HQ will be at a 4,000-acre ranch, where it will grow its own algae in a hydroponic farm.
Why algae, you ask?
Because the plan is to produce the shoes from algae foam.
At this point, Wyoming is slowly being transformed into the Kanye West city and we’re impressed at his dedication to the West state.
However, all the people want is for the shoes to not look like crocs or ‘jail slippers’.
During the same convention, Kanye revealed he wanted to change his name to ‘Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West’.
He revealed his plans when discussing his billionaire status.
According to People, the dad-of-four joked: ‘When people say it’s crass to call yourself a billionaire, I say I might legally change my name to Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West for a year until y’all understand exactly what it is.
‘It will be on the license plate.’
Not sure that mouthful will fit on a number plate, hun.
Yeezy also lifted the lid on his plans to run for president, explaining he has a few things in mind for his potential time in the White House.
‘I’m not going to run, I’m going to walk,’ he said.
‘What they’re saying is Kanye’s crazy.
‘One and three African Americans are in jail and all the celebrities are in jail also because they can’t say nothing because they’re so scared.”
President Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West does have a ring to it.
Phew, people went to the Festival expecting to find out new things about products they like, only to leave thinking about Christianity, Kanye’s presidency, and voting procedures.
