Kanye West Pens Message on a Huge Mural for Gap Store He Used to Shop At: ‘Hi Chicago It’s Ye’

Kanye West isn’t one for subtlety, especially when it comes to big gestures. The rapper and clothing designer has penned a message on a giant mural that was displayed in front of a Gap store in Chicago’s Magnificent Mile over the weekend, according to NBC Chicago.

In the message — written in all caps, like West’s tweets, on a white canvas in black print — the musician notes that he used to shop at this very store when he lived in Chicago.

The full note reads:

Thank God
Hi Chicago it’s Ye
This is the Gap store
I used to shop at when
I would drive my Nissan
From the Southside
So blessed
I thank God and I am
So humbled at the opportunity to serve
I put my heart into the
Color palette and every
Detail I love Tron the original
Do you like stuff
I don’t know what to do with
my hands
Love YZY Yeezy

(There are also photos of the mural on Instagram. See them here and here.)

The “Follow God” rapper and clothing retailer announced their partnership on June 26. The deal would have the entrepreneur bringing his Yeezy brand — but not his wildly popular sneakers — to the Gap.

The same day, West tweeted a photo of brightly colored clothing with the hashtag #WestDayEver — which was being used to promote the partnership — potentially hinting at what the collab may look like. The eye-catching colors are a departure from the garments he has shown at fashion week. His Yeezy season one and two collections were mostly gray, black and beige.

His collection is expected in stores next year.

Video premiere : The C33s : Manchester’s hottest new band turn up the punkorama!

Heading for a lockdown break-out?

Then this song is one for the soundtrack! ‘Harpurhey Hostility’ is an explosive mix of garage punk and raging northern discontent.

Not quite like anything else but reminds you of such past iconic delights such as The B52s, The Ramones & the more recent sounds of Oh Sees and Amyl and The Sniffers etc.

An uneasy and uncompromising visceral portrait of a small town in North Manchester whose strong will and attitude can often spill over into the extreme and unruly. Tragedy and comedy are at the core of The C33s and ‘Harpurhey Hostility’ represents this duality in both sound and statement.

Drummer Judy Jones takes lead vocals on this one and snarls her way through 3 minutes of slick guitar, bass runs and tribal drums that have become now recognisable to The C33s’ sound.

Recorded at Magic Garden Studios, Wolverhampton under the spiritual umbrella of Gavin Monaghan and Joseph Murray.

‘Harpurhey Hostility’ is released on 29/06/2020.

LYRICS:
There’s no future inside me,
Harpurhey Hostility!
Patrick Karney can’t save me,
Harpurhey Hostility!
Wasps instead of worker bees,
Harpurhey Hostility!
Steal it even if it’s free,
Harpurhey Hostility!
Feel it when my feet touch on the street, Creepin’ ’round the corners of my dreams, Beethoven’s 9th Symphony in D,
Hear it when they’re coming after me.
