One of pop culture’s most talked about couple, Kanye West and his fiancé, Kim Kardashian were spotted hitting up a sporting goods store out in Los Angeles, California.
Kim rocked a Hermés bag, with artwork much like the cover of Ye’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, hand-painted by an artist named George Condo. Meanwhile, Kanye kept it casual as usual.
In other Yeezy news, the 36 year-old rapper is said to be the subject of an upcoming academic textbook:
Due out March 6th, Julius Bailey’s The Cultural Impact of Kanye West is a 300-plus-page examination of the zeitgeist known as Yeezy. As the book’s description touts, it’s an in-depth analysis at the “moral and social implications of West’s words, images and music in the broader context of Western civilization’s preconceived ideas.” Having edited a collection of essays on Jay-Z, Bailey is somewhat of an ambassador for scholarly hip-hop, and has even written a book on philosophical hip-hop musings. We’re writhing in anticipation for the inevitable Kanye critique.
