Ye had his wife, Kim Kardashian, and a pair of white Yeezys in tow, which he gifted President Musevini amid their discussion of the beautifully lush East African landscape. The Chicago rapper-producer took the meeting as the perfect opportunity to express his architectural plans for a theme park in the country, likening it to the dinosaur-roaring, sci-fi thriller Jurassic Park. As most can expect from ‘Ye by now, the conversation got even more weird after that.
And the internet is yet again vexed with Mr. West’s political confab in the presence of (this time) a man of such stature.
He reminded President Musevini of the film’s concept, then shared his thoughts from when he soared a Ugandan safari during his trip. “Because when I saw the safari, I was thinking, ‘This is how all zoos should be.’”
Absent of any invitations to redesign the structure of Ugandan turf, the “I Love It” rapper shared that he wants to collect the top-tier talents “in every field of every industry” to bring his construction to life. In Yeezy’s world, that would best be described as the Black Panther fictional land of… Wakanda.
“But, I’d like to know what are the other industries that you would like to build,” he continued, “And have a discussion about what would make the entire country be the most thriving—like to build Wakanda—like, to be the most thriving.”
We’ll allow the internet to take it from here.
