West told Fast Company senior writer Mark Wilson,
“When people say it’s crass to call yourself a billionaire, I might legally change my name to
Billionaire Kanye West’
for a year until y’all understand exactly what it is…”
West has just released his latest album release, Jesus is King and a series of changes occurring in his design company Yeezy.
During the interview, West discussed his recent decision to move the Yeezy headquarters to Cody, Wyoming to test growing their own materials.
“Our goal in the next two years is to bring the manufacturing back to America: South America and North America.
We’re going to be farming and going seed-to-sow, and have our own cotton hydroponic farm and our own hemp farm and our own wheat farm so we can see every element and get into how we can have less impact with the dyes. Our color is a big signature of the brand, but also dying is one of the main things that’s impacting the planet in the fashion industry . . . so we’re just being responsible from A to Z.”
