Kanye West is apparently one of the people who Elon Musk has been consulting with as he plans to build his own town in the state of Texas.
The Twitter CEO is reportedly intending to build “a sort of Texas utopia along the Colorado River, where his staff could live and work” on at least 3,500 acres of land outside Austin, according to a story in the Wall Street Journal on Thursday, March 9.
Musk’s tunneling business, Boring Co., as well as SpaceX facilities are close to the region where he wants to settle down. The report claims that by doing this, he would be able to influence some rules in his town in order to further his ambitions.
Kanye has been talking about creating his own city for a while; in 2018, he tweeted that he was creating a “fireproof community,” and in 2020, he shared blueprints for an Eco Village and a Children’s Ranch, both of which included dome-shaped structures. Ye said that the eco-village and children’s ranch will provide “a place to safely experience pregnancy and delivery” in addition to helping women and families.
West met with his architect in 2022, according to the WSJ, although it’s unclear if this was before or after Musk had West’s Twitter account suspended for tweeting a swastika. Ye responded by labeling the businessman “a half-Chinese genetic hybrid” on Instagram.
“Am I the only one who thinks Elon could be half Chinese? Have you ever seen his pics as a child?” Ye wrote at the time. “Take a Chinese genius and mate them with a South African super model, and we have an Elon.
“I say an Elon because they probably made 10 to 30 Elon’s and he’s the first genetic hybrid that stuck …. well, let’s not forget about Obama. I’m sorry for using curse words in church but I don’t have another word for Obama yet. YE24 let’s unify and find out LUAFO.”
It’s also unknown who the architect would be, but Bianca Censori, Ye’s new wife, is a possibility. Yeezy has employed Censori as an architect for a number of years, and the two married in a small ceremony at the beginning of the year, only months after his divorce from Kim Kardashian was made official.
As for Musk, the WSJ said that he has also been speaking with Grimes, with whom he has two children, about the planned metropolis. But, nothing solid has materialized as of yet. Little details were provided to the journal by locals and authorities, but they did confirm that Musk had requested non-disclosure agreements from local citizens and governments.
