Kanye West unleashed a stream of tweets last night, giving fans a glimpse at two of his vehicles, his "squad" in the studio, and some graphics that reference the next installment of Yeezy Season. The image in Kanye's tweet shows producer Swizz Beatz sitting in front of a laptop with the words "Yeezy Season 3" and the date February 11th, the same day that the rapper's next album, SWISH, is scheduled to release.
The evidence points to Kanye making his third consecutive fashion week appearance, Kanye's wife Kim Kardashian recently tweeted out about him flying to Italy for a "Yezzy Season 3" fitting. The date on the laptop falls right smack in the middle of the upcoming New York Fashion Week. And Kanye mentioned in Vanity Fair the day after Yeezy Season 2 that the wheels were already cranking on the next collection. "Right now I'm thinking about Season 3," he said. "It's a long, long run."
It'll certainly be a big day in the West-Kardashian house if Kanye gets both a collection and album off in the same day. It'll also be a big day for fans if Kanye is able to get the prices down for Yeezy Season 3, as promised.
