Kanye West has broken his silence on Instagram to announce his creative endeavors are moving to McDonald’s.
On Monday, the rapper posted a photo of a newly designed hamburger box adorned with the famous golden arches.
“Yeh McDonald teams up with industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa to re-imagine packaging,” read the caption of the post. The post came after West teased the photo on his Instagram stories with the caption: “Next week it’s fries.” Rekha paid tribute to her poetry in her 2005 hit “Gold Digger”.
West returned to the social media platform after being temporarily banned in March, where he directed racial slurs towards comedian Trevor Noah. It all happened at the same time that West fired up posts directed at his ex-wife Kim Kardashian and her new boyfriend, comedian Pete Davidson.
Working with McDonald’s is nothing new for the “Donda” rapper. Back in February, he made a surprise cameo during Super Bowl LVI in an ad for a fast food restaurant. Prior to advertising, West has always stated that he is “loving it.” Back in 2018, he tweeted “McDonald’s is my favorite restaurant.”
In 2016, West wrote a poem for Frank Ocean’s magazine “Boys Don’t Cry” titled “The McDonald’s Man”. Lyrics to the poem include: “The Cheeseburger and the Shakes Formed a Band / To Overthrow the French Fries Plan / I Always Know Them French Fries Was Evil Man.”
So far, no release date has been announced for the fast food chain’s revamp of packaging waste.
