Kanye West and his Yeezy brand are in an interesting spot right now. Overall, he isn't exactly producing any new shoes. Although he just had a restock with Adidas, that is going to be all for now. At this juncture, he is all on his own and has to figure out how to distribute sneakers and clothes on his own, there is going to be a tough road ahead for him, however, he seems to have a plan all figured out.

According to reports from The US Sun and Radar Online, Ye has hired Doc Charney from America Apparel to run his brand. Moreover, they have fired numerous staffers as they want to cut costs. Subsequently, they have taken to Craigslist where they are hiring interns for the reduced cost of $16 per hour. Overall, this alleged information comes from sources who claim to be close to the situation.

“Although Kanye is determined to bounce back with Yeezy, and work is going on at his new HQ on Melrose, he’s already been cutting costs,” a source the US Sun. “It’s no secret he’s been bad with money in the past, and some people who have been working for him have been let go in recent weeks, or told he can’t afford them at the moment. [...] Despite this, he has been advertising for interns to work for him on Craigslist and social media for $16 per hour. He wants them doing everything from pattern making and sample sewing to photo editing and social media."

At this point, it remains to be seen if Yeezy can persist this way. Running a sneaker brand is not easy, and Ye knows that. However, it will be interesting to see what he comes up with. Fans are looking for something fresh and new, and there is no telling if his interns can provide that. Let us know what you think of this new plan, in the comments section below.
