Kanye West fans are about to get a taste of “The Life of Pablo.”
West announced on Twitter yesterday that he is opening a pop-up shop in New York City this weekend to share his forthcoming album “Life of Pablo.” The store is located at 83 Wooster St. and will be open today from 4 p.m to 8 p.m., and on Saturday and Sunday, from noon to 8 p.m.

The hip-hop phenom has previously hosted store openings for his 2013 album “Yeezus” and 2011 Jay-Z collaboration “Watch the Throne.”
While the shop will mainly be focused on West’s musical work, it could also offer other pieces of merchandise from the artist. Maybe a surprise sneaker or items from his recent Yeezy Season 3 presentation? We wouldn’t put it past the Adidas collaborator, who certainly has a habit of doing the unexpected.
There has been a lot of speculation that a new Yeezy Boost 750 could be released this month, likely in a chocolate brown colorway after West was spotted donning a pair.
German online sneaker and lifestyle magazine Blkvis claimed earlier this week that the shoe was dropping today, even though Adidas announced on Twitter that there would not be a Yeezy release in March.
Currently, Blkvis’ “buy now” link for the Yeezy Boost 750 style leads to an Air Jordan shoe on Kickz.com. We’ll be watching to see whether that changes as the day goes on.
