Kanye West has recently come under fire for his inability to fund his own creativity. Specifically, his plea for help from Mark Zuckerberg and Larry Page has brought an unprecedented level of desperation to his plan to dig himself out of his debt of $53 million. This entails organizing and funding the company, DONDA, which will cover everything from the Internet to alternative energy sources. Kanye’s innovative ideas included holograms and hovercrafts. I was interested to see what ideas didn’t actually make it past the drawing board, so we reached out to DONDA Headquarters (located entirely in Mr. West’s imagination), and were happy to receive this comprehensive list of game-changers, broken down into several categories.
