What if Kanye West's clothing brand went public? Though it seems unlikely, he has recently talked about breaking off from Adidas ( $ADDYY ) and Gap ( $GPS ). Adidas being the partner for shoes, such as the popular 350, or the yeezy slides, and Gap being the clothing partner.
Kanye West Is Done With Corporate America. He’ll Go It Alone https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-09-12/kanye-west-after-jpmorgan-jpm-gap-gps-clashes-is-done-with-companies
This article says the adidas contract ends in 23' , while gaps ends in 2030.
If Yeezy were to be publicly traded I believe it would be a very similar stock to Lululemon ( $LULU ) , I hear about Lulu all the time but i've never been into their clothing.
West has been showing his concern recently on social media, accusing Adidas of "Blatant Copying" when they released slides very similar to the Yeezy design.
If Yeezy was a public company i'd be invested.
