Is it about time that Kanye West moved away from Boost and adiPRENE in favour of something else?

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's $60 million home requires some high-class maintenance. In an interview with Forbes, West revealed that he has been working on building houses like that as a part of his charity initiative to help homeless people in the U.S.

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. "We'll take the entire design team to Japan; we'll take the entire design team to the zone and talk about where we'd like to take these ideas", he added.West went on to add that there are a lot of prototypes created before landing on the final product.

Rising sea levels to increase tidal flooding
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says Wilmington had 14 days of high tide flooding in the past year. Coastal communities experienced a median of five days of high tide flooding a year ago , tying the record set in 2015.


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. "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".

Fans first got a glimpse into the formerly very private retreat when West shared images of the interior of the home on Twitter in April 2018 - which had Kardashian scolding her husband for showing their home on social media, later clarifying that she was only joking. He recalled asking Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to invest $1 billion in his company.
