Kanye West teases his impending Yeezy collaboration with Gap on Twitter

Last month, he proudly announced that he was bringing his Yeezy label to Gap, after signing a 10-year-deal with the fashion retailer.

And on Thursday, Kanye West teased the impending collection to his nearly 30million followers on Twitter by uploading a video from a ‘YZY GAP fitting.’

In the five-second clip, a model donning a pair of iridescent utility pants can be seen standing in a warehouse, while a tank roared behind her.

The model also happened to be wearing a white tee with holes near the neckline as a stylist worked on securing a silver belt around her waist. 

On the floor of the warehouse, there were a number of different clothing items in a variety of tones.

Many of the pieces on the ground appeared to be tank tops, which were tie-dyed or given a mix media look. 

There also appeared to be a pair of gold shorts, a neon orange puffer jacket, and a slew of bright colored cropped tops.

In the far left section of the clip, what looked like a yellow, fleece hoodie with black lining could be seen resting on the floor.

The most jarring element of Kanye’s video happened to be the futuristic tank that roared out of the warehouse on a track.  

Kanye’s Twitter clip comes nearly two-weeks after the 43-year-old rapper trademarked the hashtagged #WestDayEver’ phrase for use on clothing and footwear.

The hashtag was used by West on June 26, when he announced his partnership with Gap on Twitter, tweeting: ‘Yeezy and Gap form partnership #WestDayEver.’

The legal filing means Kanye can put ‘West Day Ever’ on a slew of products ranging from t-shirts and hoodies to sportswear and babywear as well as shoes and sneakers 

The 10-year deal with the high-profile apparel company is called Yeezy Gap and is expected to launch early in 2021.

It was also confirmed on the day of the trademark filing that Kanye’s Yeezy company had received a loan from the federal government of between $2 and $5 million.

The money was handed over as part of the Payment Protection program that’s part of the coronavirus stimulus package and was listed in information released by the Small Business Administration.

According to the SBA’s records, the money was need to protect 160 jobs at the rapper’s clothing company.

In a press release from Gap last month about its partnership with Kanye, it was stated that West is the sole owner of his Yeezy brand which has a valuation of $2.9 billion. 

Not surprisingly, the use of taxpayer money to help out Ye has raised plenty of eyebrows, not least because of the highly extravagant ‘billion dollar’ lifestyle that Kanye and reality star wife Kim Kardashian enjoy.

On July 4, The Life of Pablo recording artist decided to declare his intention to run for president in November’s election.

‘We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States #2020VISION,’ he tweeted.

It was announced on Wednesday that Kanye would officially make the presidential ballot in November in Oklahoma after spending the $35,000 fee and meeting the FEC requirements to make a run.
