Yeezy in da (school) house
Mr West wants to design school uniforms.
What could possibly go wrong?
Kanye West - aka self-professed musical god - might have a new gig lined up. And it’s not a collab with Drake. Or Kendrick. Or Jay-Z. Nup. He’s got his fash hat on and wants to design uniforms for high school kids.
He’s in talks with Calabasas High School in the US, to deck out the sports teams in brand spankin’ new Yeezy. Word is, he’s even primed to change the football team name from the Calabasas Coyotes to the Wolves (aka the title of one of his tracks).
We’ve got a few ideas for you, Mr West… Maybe the Yeezus Christ Superstars? Or My Beautiful Dark Twisted Footballers? The Bound 2 the ball-ers? Or (Kardashian-inspired), the Kanye Koyotes?
For those not in the know, Calabasas is a neighbourhood in SoCal. It’s home to the Kardashians, Drake and Biebs just to name a few. As well as some pretty epic mansions.
The rapper and designer recently collabed with Adidas and dropped a new collection of Calabasas merch (for anyone wanting to pretend like they live amongst celeb royalty). The new line included a bunch of luxe sportwear, like the much-hyped Calabasas trackpants, Yeezy Powerphase sneakers, crew-neck jumpers and a red enamel pin.
Now Yeezy is thinking of taking his love for his ‘burb even further. Rumour has it, as part of the whole designing the uniforms deal, he’d also make a decent donation to improve the school’s sporting facilities. Yeezy for Class President? One thing’s for sure, if Yeezy scores this collab the Calabasas High kids are going to look pretty sweet.
