CHICAGO, IL – Shocking both the hip-hop and the political worlds, Kanye West and John McCain announced that they have developed a joint clothing line.
The gear, called McKainye, will be a blend of conservative styles typically associated with politicians, the free-spirited styles typically associated with hip-hop artists, and the narcissistic feel that’s unique to Kanye West. “McKainye – Reaching Way Across the Aisle,” is both the tag line for the apparel and the title to the duet the pair recorded to promote their new venture.
Making the merger even more bizarre, West has been vocal against the current Republican administrations. The rapper/philanthropist made headlines in 2005 during a benefit show for victims of Hurricane Katrina by going off script and saying “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.”
“McCain’s good people,” said West. “He’s no Bush. This is the right thing for the country right now.”
McCain couldn’t be contacted for a comment, as he’s still very busy with his bid to become the next president of the United States. There is no support to the charge that McCain has been throwing the election in order to promote the apparel and eventually record a solo album.
McKainye will hit the stores in mid-November of this year.
