Kanye West Rants About Plans To 'Pick Up Where Steve Jobs Left Off'

Kanye West has got some grand plans for the next few years.

"What good is fame and prestige if you can't use it to help people," West began his messaging spree that continued for three hours on Twitter. "I want to help by doing what I know how to do best... create."

"I have started a new company and I'm so excited about the name... it's got the best name ever of all companies of all time," he raved.

"The name of the company is Donda," he revealed, named after his late mother Donda West.

"Donda is a design company which will galvanize amazing thinkers and put them in a creative space to bounce there (sic.) dreams and ideas. It will pick up where Steve Jobs left off."

"I am assembling a team of architects, graphic designers, directors musicians, producers, writers, publicist, social media experts... app guys, managers, car designers, clothing designers, DJs, video game designers, publishers, tech guys, lawyers, bankers, nutritionist, doctors, scientist, teachers."

"Donda will be comprised of over 22 divisions," he said, "to help simplify and aesthetically improve everything we see hear, touch, taste and feel... dream of, create, advertise and produce products driven equally by emotional want and utilitarian need."

The singer then went on to say he wanted to reform the school system.

"There are so many broken systems from the economy to school systems jail systems... we need experts for this. I want to do a summer school that tries new forms of curriculum."

"Kids should be able to take majors starting in grammar school like how it is at performing art schools. Math classes should teach addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, accounting and money management and cut!"

"Help education. School systems were designed to turn people into factory workers."

"I wanted to put this in the world in hopes that the people who can actually make a difference will stand up and reach out."

"I care about people who have never heard of me... There are over 7 billion people on the planet now."
