Open Letter to Kanye’s “2015 Yeezy II Clothing Line” (Revisited)

It was about a year ago in February when Kanye West teamed with Addias to drop his Yeezy 2015 Fall fashion line. Yeezy looked to shock the world and he went on to do something even greater. Kanye brought everyone in the world together… in roasting his ass something viscous. It was a beautiful moment in American pop culture history where we all came together on social media and went joke for joke for hours and even days on end.

Our open letter format actually stems from a roasting session on Kanye’s fashion line. In celebration of that we’re going to relive and remix the magic of that beautiful day. We’re going to celebrate the joy of the 2015 Yeezy Fall fashion line the best way we know how… by using the Edo Tensei technique to revive it for the anniversary of the roast. Let’s set the timer one mo gain.
