rapper kanye west has announced he’s adding an architecture division to his yeezy brand called ‘yeezy home.’ the hip-hop artist and producer made the announcement on twitter outlining his search for architects and designers who want to ‘make the world better’.



until recently yeezy has been known as west’s fashion brand starting out in 2009 with the nike air yeezy 1 before launching as a fashion label in 2015 with its first collection. since then he has expressed desired to move into product designing and more recently in april revealed he wanted to expand the company, also tweeting: ‘yeezy is no longer a fashion company we should be referred to as apparel or clothing or simply YEEZY.’


during the past week, the rapper has been under public scrutiny for comments he made on TMZ where he said, ‘you hear about slavery for 400 years. for 400 years that sounds like a choice.’ west has since explained that his comments were an attempt at demonstrating ‘free thought’ and his definition of slavery meant a mental imprisonment occurring right now.
