As mentioned during an interview with Joe Rogan in the latest podcast, West revealed that he met with Iranian-American venture capitalist Shervin Pishevar in Haiti to arrange him a part of Tortuga/Turtle Island to develop.

The arrangement of course caused a lot of disagreement, leading Kanye to tweet: “Just to be CLEAR: WE ARE IN ENGAGED WITH HAITI’s GOVERNMENT to make a transformational INVESTMENT to bring JOBS, DEVELOPMENT, HELP SUPPORT LOCAL FARMERS and FISHERMEN and Build a new « CITY OF THE FUTURE » in a very beautiful country.”

This should clarify that Kanye’s “City of the Future” is for the benefit of the Haitian people and that the money will be going directly back to the local farmers and workers.
