As I am sure you have already heard, Kanye West couldn’t sleep last night so he decided to fire off 86 tweets about his plans to “pick up where Steve Jobs left off” and inspire the world to come together in a relentless global brainstorm on all levels of creativity. Although I have been a pretty tough critic of Kanye’s in the past, especially his attempt at being a fashion designer, I have to give him a virtual high-five for this. If there is something Kanye is undoubtedly good at, its catching peoples attention and its about time celebrities of the world turn all that spot-light into positive energy. He is asking people all over the world to step up and join him on what could be one of the worlds biggest creative cultivations to date. DONDA, the name of his new company, is looking to bring reform to the world as a whole with a focus on educating the youth. YOU GO KANYE, you have my endorsement. Catch up with his rant on twitter @kanyewest or check out some of my personal favorite tweets from the 3hr escapade below.
“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”
“…To dream of, create, advertise and produce products driven equally by emotional want and utilitarian need.. To marry our wants and needs.”
“We can collectively effect the world trough design. We need to pick up where steve jobs left off”
