Kanye West praised for turning $53M in debt into $1B Yeezy empire

According to the Forbes feature, West's current project includes designing his envisioned housing units for low-income classes.

It's a stark contrast to 2016, when West unleashed a flood of tweets claiming he was $US53 million in debt, before asking Facebook founder Mark Zuckerbergfor $1 billion.

Kanye West is building a fleet of "Star Wars"-esque shelters in a California forest".

"There, with the hazy heft of something enormous and far away, stand a trio of structures that look like the skeletons of wooden spaceships", Greenburg wrote.

Apple might launch notch-less iPhone series by 2020
But, many tech analysts claim that Apple's efforts to achieve notchless iPhones might be completed in 2021 and not in 2020. Earlier this week, Apple released an ad touting Face ID as a much better option than Touch ID.

In the article, Greenburg describes Kanye taking him on a tour of "oblong and dozens of feet tall" prototypes, like those featured in George Lucas' 1977 movie Star Wars: A New Hope, in which Mark Hamill portrayed Luke Skywalker. The structures can reportedly be sunk into the ground, with light coming in from the top.

"I would say [it's] like a minimal monastery", she says in the video, which shows off numerous mansion's large, sparsely decorated rooms.

Kim Kardashian said that her husband pushed his team to do their best and go outside their comfort zone.

One of the more impressive parts of the line, however, is the agreement West struck in 2013 to move Yeezy from Nike to Adidas. We'll have to see these homes for ourselves before we pass judgment, but we certainly can't fault West for taking inspiration from one of our favorite series.
