In a late night tweet storm Kanye West talked about his plans for his new company called DONDA, named after his mother.

West wants to assemble a super team of creative folks to … do something.

Here’s what he’s looking for (via BetaBeat):

“I am assembling a team of architects, graphic designers, directors musicians, producers, AnRs, writers, publicist, social media experts, app guys, managers, car designers, clothing designers, DJs, video game designers, publishers, tech guys, lawyers, bankers, nutritionist,┬ádoctors, scientist, teachers… I want to put creatives in a room together with like minds that are all waaaay doper than me. We want to help simplify and aesthetically improve everything we see hear, touch, taste and feel.”


West wasn’t just talking about doing a startup. He also revealed some other details on his life. Here are some of the other tweets:

I did the first fashion show out of my own pocket and used the money I made touring to follow my passion.

I moved to Japan for one month after that and designed every night in my room…

I know this is not a very rapper thing to say but I haven’t bought a new car or piece of jewelry in about 2 years…

I invest every dime back into creativity… hiring amazing creatives paying for flights, offices … etc…

I appreciate having the most nominations at the Grammies but I feel so conflicted by the fact that award shows sometimes are completely…..illogical

My area of expertise is in music, my passion is in music design film and products… my strength is connectivity…

There are so many broken systems from the economy to school systems jail systems… we need experts for this…

We need scientist and top world designers to directly affect governments.
