Kanye West, who’s become known for saying stupid things and announcing projects he never completes (if he even starts them), has announced his newest project: building a giant city somewhere in the Middle East.
The city will be called DROAM, and while an exact location has not been specified, it’s expected to span 100,000 acres, according to a post shared Wednesday on X (formerly Twitter).
This ambitious project comes in the wake of a series of unfinished ventures and abandoned properties by West, including a Los Angeles church he bought for $1.5 million and has since abandoned, leaving it with “boarded-up windows, old shopping carts, & trash.”
The once-respectable 46-year-old also has a history of announcing albums that never get released, including a recent unfulfilled promise of a collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign, reports the NY Post (which has also obtained some renderings of West’s imaginary city).
But we’re sure he’ll finish building DROAM – which, by the way, sounds a bit like Neom – another giant city being built in the Middle East …
West is currently seeking collaborators including project managers, engineers, architects, and builders.

Ye’s lack of follow through on previous projects raises quite a bit of skepticism on this one.
