As part of his Forbes cover story that landed earlier this week, Kanye West also took part in a video interview that dives into how he goes about designing new Yeezy sneaker silhouettes.

Since then, he has teamed with Vervoordt to design the strikingly minimalist house he shares with Kim Kardashian and announced the creation of Yeezy Home-an architecture firm that would serve high-concept housing to low-income families-was teased in May of past year.

Kanye West revealed he's building a community for the homeless inspired after his favorite sci-fi franchise, Star Wars.

"It was the first shoe to have the same level of impact as an Air Jordan, and I wanted to do more", West told Forbes.

"There's a little bit of Lamborghini in everything I do", West says.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West attend the opening night of the new musical "The Cher Show" on Broadway at Neil Simon Theatre on December 03, 2018 in New York City. "Yeezy is the Lamborghini of shoes". Also in the pipeline, according to the article: "a shoe made out of algae that will biodegrade completely over time in landfills - or nearly immediately if sprayed with a certain type of bacteria".

Oh, and then there's the matter of his Yeezy Home venture, a social housing project focused on affordable, concrete, prefabricated homes for low-income families.

"'Crazy" is a word that's not gonna be used loosely in the future.

Now, it looks like Kanye is giving to the homeless, in a grand, Star Wars fashion. And there's a lot of people that have been called that "C' word that have ended up on this cover".
