The Price of Ye
Addressing Kanye West’s latest antics in the media, journalist Naoka Foreman made issue number 7 of The Majority about how Kanye is still the old Kanye but with a different message against being enslaved to the commoditization of everything in human relations. In this issue Foreman ties in lyrics from the album College Dropout and Yeezus to draw a comparison of West’s criticism towards big business and crass consumerism. Foreman dissects the meaning of “400 bucks” in the song ‘All Falls Down’ and relates it to West exposing human surplus value in industries. She proclaims that “if people inherited an attitude like West towards big business and acknowledge their surplus value… perhaps his statement [slavery was a choice] would have been met with a different attitude”.

Usually described as a chunky dad shoe, retro-fitted in a culture filled with lifestyle runners and performance basketball gems, the YEEZY Desert Rat 500 by many estimations doesn’t subscribe to any label. Which, for our dime, doesn’t require one. A great design can justifiably defy genre and cultivate a space of its own volition.
Kanye West designs are largely found here; wherever here may be. His YEEZY Desert Rat 500 does feature many characteristics of modern-day footwear design. Common yet premium iterations of suede, leather and mesh converge atop the low-cut base that resides over updated adiPrene tooling. Finished with an on-trend blush shade that seamlessly allows the shoe’s nuance to shine through, Hypebeast has vindicated the budding model with on-foot imagery.
The YEEZY Desert Rat 500 “Blush” is slated to release very soon although more detailed information has not yet been revealed. Stay tuned for more. Read more
