Kanye West says ‘YZY’ brand unofficially works for Apple

“In a series of seemingly unprompted Tweets, Kanye West calls Steve Jobs a hero and claims his for-profit firm is actually a non-profit arm of Apple,” William Gallagher writes for AppleInsider.

“Rapper and fashion designer Kanye West has spontaneously tweeted a series of comments declaring that his clothing company YZY is effectively owned by Apple,” Gallagher writes. “But, it is not.”

“‘YZY Is a for purpose (non profit) arm (branch) of Apple,’ he tweeted on September 30. ‘We unofficially work for Steve Johnny Tim and Lorraine. Everything we do at YZY is to be an arm (branch) of what our hero Steve has created. With love,'” Gallagher writes. “Spelling mistakes aside, he’s referring to Steve Jobs, Jony Ive and Tim Cook. We can only guess that by ‘Lorraine’ he means Laurene Powell Jobs, the businesswoman and widow of Steve Jobs.”

  1. I installed my first 2 HomeKit items today. A deadbolt and a thermostat. I got the August Pro deadbolt and the Sensi thermostat. Saying “Hey Siri, Cool the main room to 72 degrees and watching the air conditioner come to life is a kick.

  2. Spectrum is providing gigabit Internet in Los Angeles now, ever since they bought Time Warner.

    I get 940Mb/s down and 40Mb/s up when testing on Speedtest.net.

    I get 1.2Gbps down and 36Mbps upwhen testing on fast.com.

    If you’re in LA. Check it out.

    1. The core MDN audience has never been to California, and have been instructed with a narrative that they should hate all things Californian. Except Apple. The irony burns.

      1. The core MDN audience? Who is that?

        California is worthy of much disdain. Much. But if you’re stuck here, you have to make the best of it. California has created a cottage industry of firearm consultants, for instance, who help people acquire the guns they want in spite of the ridiculous restrictions California creates.

  3. “Kanye West has been under severe criticism since his appearance on Saturday Night Live over the weekend. In which he pointed out that 90% of the news media is liberal, that blacks were not always predominantly Democrats, and that he wasn’t concerned about racism in America.”

    I guess if you appear on SNL, the hidden agenda you are not allowed to think for yourself or espouse conservative views. So much for the open minded political left, as Botty used to say, keep them on the plantation. You go KW!

    NBA KW shoe ban, here:


  4. I’ve watched several of West’s SNL performances, hoping to find proof of his so-called genius. I’m afraid that all I see is a talentless fraud who’s great at doing crazy things that get media attention.

    Now I get why he loves the president.

    1. No, you absolutely do not know why he loves the president.

      As a leftist you do not have the capacity to understand. They speak the same language and share the same beliefs about the media, blacks, etc.

      If he was such a “talentless fraud” why is so rich and famous winning Grammy’s and dozens of awards, hmmm?

      You are a typical drive-by elitist leftist dumping on those you disagree politically and moving on. Nothing more …
