Hey Kanye, Just Following Up

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Stories surrounding Kanye West, designer/rapper/produce/Genius/internet dad, have swollen uncontrollably in 2016. He kicked off January by dropping his Nike diss track, "Facts," and released sonic morsels of perfection "Real Friends" and "No More Parties in LA" throughout the month.

Kanye also promised the prices for Yeezy Season 3 would be lower, teased a potential fashion show and album debut mashup, and confirmed he would perform both at Madison Square Garden. Also, please never ever forget the practically one-sided Twitter beef he had with Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose.

Needless to say, I had a lot of questions! So this Kanye super-duper fan tried to get answers straight from the source.

Hey Kanye,

Longtime listener, first time e-mailer! Thanks for vowing to bring the prices down on Yeezy Season 3. I'm on hold with my bank now trying to get my cap raised just to make sure I can get everything. They're saying just because I "over-drafted" six times while ordering Seamless from the Indian place around the corner that that makes me "an irresponsible and ridiculous human" who "can't handle the responsibility that comes with being able to spend more than $50 a day."

I'll keep you posted!

Your bud,

Cam

Hello Mr. West,

Just heard the news! (You could have texted!) So excited for your fashion week show at MSG! Let me know if you're doing any "Real Friends" discount for the show's tix ;)

Vowing to never steal your laptop and make you pay $250,000 just to get it from me,

Hey Kanye,

This is Cam again (from Racked!). Do you mind telling me which of Wiz's pants you thought were cool. Thanks, OG.

Wishing I were tall and skinny too,

Cam

Hey Kanye,

Just wanted to follow-up real quick. I realized there might totally have been some crazy silly mix-up with my name! This is Cam Wolf, from Racked, not Cameron "Wiz ‘Stole All His Shit From Cudi' Khalifa" Jibril Thomaz. So I totally understand why you wouldn't be responding. But now that that's cleared up feel free to hit me up whenever.

Cam "Not Wiz" Wolf

Yours truly always awake at 3am,

Cam

P.S. Don't worry about it, it's totally cool and normal for guys to be into that! Kk talk to you soon. Oops! Kk, like "Okay," lol. K, talk to you soon!

Hey Kanye,

I totally feel you. New Year's resolutions are tough. Don't worry about not keeping up with your G.O.O.D. Music Fridays.

Looking forward to SWISH, or Waves, or So Help Me God, or really whatever you want to call it. "Wolves" CDQ?

Wake up, Mr. West Mr. West! (No, jk jk you can do whatever you want.)

Tried to buy tickets for your MSG event on this secondhand site ReallyRealNotFakeTickets.com. Can you please confirm or deny whether these are legit? A simple yes or no would suffice here. Don't hesitate to give me a shout on my landline either!

Written 80 bars and yet you still haven't responded,

Cam

PS. Yes, my bank did call and tell me I had "overdrafted" again. LOL! I know you didn't ask, but I feel like you were wondering.

Just went to the castings for your Yeezy Season 3 show, but they said that the auditions were over by the time I got there. While I don't have a headshot, I do have this drawing of what to expect if you were to cast me! See below.

Hey Kanye,

What an (ultralight) dream! I may be out of my mind after inhaling the fumes that came off my pile of burning Nikes, but the tickets were real, I chanted, "Fuck Nike," and it was so good to see you and your family again! I even got a pic with them!! Christmas card caliber stuff, eh?

Hey Kanye,

Just finished listening to the new album for, I don't know, the one millionth time! You were totally right, this is the album of Life.

Hey Kanye,

We sure do have a lot in common! We are both fiscally irresponsible humans who will put it all on the line to pursue their dreams. For you, it's a fashion line. For me, another delivery of Indian food, on the double! I say we start a joint Kickstarter and divvy out the donations betwixt us.

Sending a Hamilton your way,

Cam

Hey Kanye,

I know you have a plan for me in regards to your Yeezy Boosts. I've reached acceptance.

Hoping you'll bring back the OG colorway soon,

Cam

Hey Kanye,

Forgive me Yeezus, for I have sinned. You know how we all have those regrettable style moments? You used to wear pink polos and backpacks all the time — that was bananas! Well, I once wore Pumas in high school and for that I apologize. I can't believe Kylie is doing this to you. If you need a new family member, just shoot an email this way.

Willing to change my name,

Kam

Hey Kanye,

I've always said I want to be a baby again, and now I know which one. Mazel Tov!

Wishing I could have a do-over on life,

Hey Kanye,

I finally got a pair! $10,000 was a steal — I've always said shoes are more valuable than cars. Which do you need more for, you know, gettin' around places!?

PS. You mind if I crash at your place for a bit lol!

Hey Kanye,

Luckily I don't have what most people would call a "home" anymore! The sidewalks are my house now and I couldn't have been happier to call the line at your TLOP pop-up shop my house last night. Even though you weren't there I knew you were winking at me with that projection of a wolf.

My shoes will keep me warm,

Cam Wolf
