In any case, it was noted that the latest trademark application followed after the 45-year-old American rapper’s Yeezus trademark filed 17 trademark applications with the USPTO for goods and services ranging from cosmetics to toys. by household goods games and sports equipment.
The dossier also includes items for NFTS, blockchain-based currencies, clothing, bags, physical and online stores, and even amusement parks.

Meanwhile, having his own physical retail store could be a dream come true for West. In 2015, he had already expressed his wish to one day create his own chain of stores, and it seems that the time has finally arrived. In her interview with Vanity Fair around that time, Ye revealed her wish.
“I can see the wood in my head, that beaten wood. I can feel the energy from space,” West told the publication. “I’ve already embraced the moment when I can finally have my own store, which has always been a dream of mine. So even though we do some really amazing online sales, my dream is just to have my own store. And to have multiple ones.
