As we gear up for the release of Jesus is King, Zane Lowe has again linked up with Kanye West for an in–depth discussion covering all things Yeezus, Jesus, and the ethics of premarital sex. Regarding the manufacturing of Yeezy product, Kanye reflected on the necessity of bringing the apparel and footwear brand Stateside.
‘For me, as a founder, it’s really important to bring these jobs back to America’, Kanye told Zane.
Alongside bolstering the US economy, Kanye said that bringing the brand home will allow ‘rapid prototyping’ and the potential to open up employment opportunities through prison reform systems.
Kanye announced plans to shift production to US factories within the next two years.
