Kanye West‘s eldest daughter, North, 10, has kept it all in the family with a Halloween costume that pays tribute to her father’s early career.
On Saturday (October 28), a video surfaced on TikTok that showed North flexing her moves in an all-too-familiar bear costume with a version of Estelle’s Ye-featuring “American Boy” — a Graduation-era hit — playing in the background.
You may recognize the bear mascot from the cover of Ye’s debut album, The College Dropout (2004). In 2005, a rendition of the mascot appeared once more on West’s sophomore LP Late Registration, and another, slightly different version was on his third album cover, for Graduation (2007).
Check out a video of North rocking her version of the Graduation-era mascot — complete with a varsity jacket and gold Jesus piece — below.
In music news, Kanye fans have plenty to be thrilled about after news there’s new music on the way.
On Monday (October 23), Ty took to Instagram to reveal that the big event will take place on November 3, although no locations were announced.
The news comes on the heels of reports that Ye and Ty were slated to debut the project to a crowd of 100,000 fans at a concert venue in Italy in late October.
However, the show — which was rumored to be held at the RCF Arena in Reggio Emilia — never happened.
It was also recently reported that Kanye and Ty Dolla are looking for a company to distribute their joint project. Billboard speculated that it will most likely be a smaller distributor as “some label leaders have passed on the opportunity” due to West’s history of antisemitic and anti-Black Lives Matter comments.
Ye first spoke about the prospect of recording a joint album with Ty Dolla $ign during an interview with Power 106 in 2018.
“Oh man, it’s so crazy. That’s one of the best combinations ever,” he said at the listening party for his ye album in Wyoming. “Whenever we get on joints together, it be like, ‘Yo.’ It’s just [outta here].
“I’m just trying to go week after week after week and just improve on the craft. Ty is one of the strongest artists that we have living, and anything I can do to support, get around, produce, take my hands, chop up, everything, I’m with it.”
