TMZ usually does a great job with fact-checking before releasing a story, which means there must be some truth to the story it released over the weekend stating that Kanye West and Calabasas school officials are talking about the artist designing the school’s sports uniforms and maybe doing more.
According to the TMZ story, West recently met with school officials to “pitch” a collaboration between Yeezy, the artist’s collaborative project with Adidas, and the high school’s sports programs. Making this story plausible is the fact that the Calabasas football program currently wears Adidas uniforms.
An unnamed source in the story says West wants to change the school colors from black and gold to something else, plus change the school’s nickname from the Coyotes to the Wolves. The story also suggests that West would make a “sizable donation” to improve the school’s facilities, which would include major upgrades to the school’s gym.
West and his wife, reality star Kim Kardashian, already have a Calabasas-themed clothing line for kids.
The TMZ story ends with the quote, “We’re told the school has not made a decision yet — but it seems like a no-brainer.”
Last season, Calabasas finished 14-1 and was ranked No. 10 in the High School Football America Southern California Top 25 and No. 18 in our California Top 25.
