The very first piece from Kanye West’s Yeezy’s deal with Gap is finally here and what could have been a better occasion than the rapper’s 44th birthday itself to release the merch for sale. Yes, a bright blue round jacket from Yeezy and Gap has hit the official site and is up for grabs.

After minting millions from his deal with Adidas since 2013, Kanye West had scored another lucrative deal with GAP in March 2021. Locking a 10-year deal with the apparel brand, the rapper further upped his already impressive net worth. According to multiple reports, Yeezy and Gap will be aiming at generating $1 billion in annual sales in five years. For the uninitiated, Gap raked in a massive $4.6 billion in global revenue last year.

Cost

Fashion lovers will have to shell out $200 for the YEEZY x GAP round jacket. Speaking about the same, one journalist tweeted, “The first Gap Yeezy drop is up on the @Gap website. Want in? You have to share your email, phone #, top, pants, and shoe size, at which point you will be placed in a "waiting room" for about five minutes before being permitted to buy a blue puffer for $200.  Genius.”

Speaking on the same lines, one user said, “I remember they used to make fun of me for wearing gap when I was a kid. Now this Mf Kanye West selling the shit for $200 smh.
