Kanye West Announces His New Company, “Donda”

Kanye West has officially announced the launch of his new design company, DONDA, set to create “products and experiences” for people. The company will be comprised of 22 different divisions, including architects, graphic designers, directors, producers, social media experts, publishers, lawyers, nutritionists, scientists, DJ’s, doctors, teachers, A&R’s, and more. Through a 5 hour long rant of tweets, Kanye said that he plans to “help simplify and aesthetically improve everything we see hear, touch, taste and feel.”

He also clarified that his upcoming women’s clothing line will not be named “DW” after his mother, Dr. Donda West, “The name of the line is Kanye West not DW… the DW was a design element placed on the invite in homage to my mom.” All the proceeds from his hit albums have been invested in his entire endeavor within the fashion world.  This concept is so respectable because he has no one backing him; he is using money out of his own pocket to fund the products, fashion shows, and everything in between.  He said he’s been working on it for 8 years.

In addition, he offered a personal recount on his deep dedication in fashion, asserting that his international reputation has been rather an obstacle than help. “For the first 16 or 17 years of my life the only thing I knew about my woman’s clothing was what my Mom would wear. I guess some critics would joke that I still don’t know anything LOL. The teachers said I couldn’t focus… I used to get kicked out of class for bringing dirty mags and drawing Nikeys in 4th grade…Being a celebrity has afforded me many opportunities but has also boxed me in creatively.” Kanye also made the point that, “What good is fame and prestige if you can’t use it to help people… I want to help by doing what I know how to do best .. create.”

Furthermore, Kanye stated that he intends to reshape the American school system. That includes starting a summer school with director Spike Jonze. “There are so many broken systems from the economy to school systems jail systems… we need experts for this.” This plan is super ambitious; if he pulls this off this will completely solidify the fact that this man is a genius.  YEEZY TAUGHT ME.
