Is this real life?
Yeezy season seems to be approaching, and what better way to redecorate your home than with…air? An enterprising spirit from Pennsylvania has taken it upon him or herself to list on eBay a lot that includes a sealed, inflated Ziploc bag labeled “AIR FROM KANYE SHOW.” The Daily Mail reports that bidding for the bag has exceeded $65,000, or more than enough to cover a couple of items from Kanye’s new Adidas clothing line. The seller’s description of his or her collection process (“Held bag open and sealed air in“) is straightforward enough, and while little was provided in the way of authentication, the bidding took off. The air is presumably from West’s Yeezus tour, which spanned 2013 and 2014 and featured Kendrick Lamar as its support act.
Though no release date has been announced, Kanye’s seventh solo album, So Help Me God, appears to be imminent. This week, he released “All Day,” his Theophilus London- and Allan Kingdom-featuring single that borrows from the UK’s grime scene. He has also been performing the tender Paul McCartney-assisted ballad “Only One” and “Wolves,” which sports turns from Vic Mensa and Sia. Only the former is available in CD quality.
