Kanye West Sets Up Lemonade Stand to Sell Yeezys for Charity
Kanye West is fulfilling hypebeasts' dreams and giving to a good cause at the same time. The rap star and his family recently participated in a nationwide lemonade stand event where they sold Yeezys for charity.
It all went down on Friday (March 22). All across the nation, participants launched lemonade stands in order to give back the funds to charitable causes in Indianapolis, Texas, Ohio, Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa and South Dakota. West's pop-up shop was in his neighborhood of Calabasas, Calif. In addition to lemonade, he had exclusive Yeezys on deck. According to TMZ, unreleased pairs of the Yeezy Boost 700 V2 "Geode" were going for $300. It was a family affair. Ye's kids participated by helping construct the stand and signs. Proceeds went to National Alliance on Mental Illness.
Besides his weekly Sunday Service, Kanye has been keeping it somewhat low-key, comparatively speaking. Fans have been waiting patiently for his upcoming album Yandhi. The most recent news on the album surfaced a couple of weeks ago when engineer Kevin Celik talked about a track that features Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign that will reportedly be on the album. "There's a song on the album called 'New Body' and Nicki Minaj is on it," revealed Celik. "It's Kanye, Nicki and Ty Dolla $ign [and] it's Kim K-inspired for sure."
