Kanye planning new sports brand

Kanye West aims to "be the anchor of the first $1 trillion company".

The hip-hop superstar - who is married to reality TV personality Kim Kardashian West, 33, - has announced plans to launch his own line of sports kit, which he intends to ultimately transform into an international business.

The 37-year-old rapper is quoted by The Sun newspaper as saying: "I'm going to be making uniforms (jerseys) for my old high school through my brand Yeezy. I want to... eventually do uniforms for the entire city.

"Then I want those uniforms to be hot and I eventually want to be the anchor and the force behind a $1 billion company. Then I want to be the anchor of the first $1 trillion company".

Kanye made the remarks at LA's Trade Technical College, where he was appearing as part of the community service he was handed for attacking a photographer in 2013.

Speaking about his ambitions within the sphere of fashion, the 'All of the Lights' star added: "I want to stop using the term 'fashion' because Eve made Adam bite an apple and since then it's been illegal to be naked. I'm helping people follow the law in style."
