Kanye West’s new albumn, 808’s & Heartbreak, is set to drop next week on November 24th. Most of you have probably heard some of his new stuff. At first i was not sure about his new musical direction but now I’m liking how he changed it up. One thing he didn’t change up however was the sick albumn artwork. On his lat albumn he had Takashi Marakami do the ablumn artwork, now he got brooklyn artist KAWS. The cover and artwork are off the chain, even better than Graduation’s. KAWS work is always off the chain so i would not expect anyting else. [ Via Highsnobiety]
Kanye West was seen wearing these new red Air Yeezy’s at Vh1’s Hip Hop Honors Ceremony last week. The red works really well these shoes, these shoes are quickly becoming everybody’s favorite. They are still exclusive for Yeezy but if they do ever come out Sneakhype will let you know.
Kanye West teamed up with Nike to make the “Air Yeezy” for his Glow in the Dark Tour, it is supposedly made up of three shoes the Air Jordan III, Bape Roadsta, and the Atto Cow Hide Boot. Its hard not to like the shoe, nice colorways, and they glow in the dark. These anticipated shoes should be out sometime soon in limited quantities.
Takashi Murakami has come under the public eye as of late, mostly because the popularity of Kanye West’s new album “Graduation”. You see Takashi Murakami is the man behind the artwork done for the album cover. Murakami is known as one of the best contempary artists in the world. He attempts to blur the boundaries between high and low art. Louis-Vuitton recently collaborated with Murakami to make a perfect collection.
