Kanye West is on a mission to buy America.
During the second part of his headline-making “Drink Champs” interview, NORE brought up a conversation he had with Ye in which he told him, “I want to buy America.”
“You weren’t supposed to bring up that part,” Ye joked before confirming his view. “I’m going to.”
He didn’t go into detail, but part of his grand plan involves more land ownership and community building.
He already owns two 12,000-acre ranches in Wyoming, one of which he recently listed for $11 million, and is interested in expanding. Tesla CEO Elon Musk invited him to Austin this week, while he also visited J Prince in Houston.
In 2019, he started building dome-like structures on the 300 hectares of land he owns in Calabasas, but his housing project was halted.
‘I said, can I build on my land there? They keep stopping what I’m doing,” Ye said, referring to his past troubles.
He also spoke to Young Thug, presumably about his intention to build his own “Slime City” in Atlanta after being given 100 acres of land for his 30th birthday.
And that’s just part of his lofty plans for the future. Hip-hop’s richest rapper also wants to make himself a publicly traded entity. “I’m going to go public and create a universal basic income and go public for a year.” [trillion]’, you said.
