Tracey Mills, fashion designer and frequent Kanye West clothing collaborator stops by the show to discuss the direction the new merch is heading and gets personal as he lets us know his story of where he came from.
Mills calls Ye a “master” when asked about his relationship with the rapper, who he’s now been working with for over 5 years.
“A master at research and gathering information, he’s a real student who lives by the code ‘a smart man knows he knows nothing.’ He devours information.”
After working on super successful brands such as Ed Hardy and Von Dutch, Mills meets Yeezy through his former DJ Don C, as well as various other mutual famous friends. It wasn’t always so glamorous for Mr. Mills though, who goes into detail about what it was like growing up with an abusive father and in the shadow an older brother in the NFL. He was ultimately able to stay true to himself and pursue his passion which led him to where he’s at now, all due to hard work and dedication, truly a lesson for us all.
