On Wednesday, a student from Eisenhower High School in Houston, Texas tweeted at the rapper asking for permission to use the cover art for his single “Watch” or the cover for his album “Astroworld” on senior T-shirts for the graduating class of 2019. She also shared a mockup of the sweatshirt she wanted to create.
Instead of simply giving the teen the rights to the images, the musician, 26, tweeted back, “Ill just design them for u guys and send a box thru how about that. ? [sic]”
And it makes sense Scott would want to make the merchandise himself, since he’s reportedly planning on launching his own fashion line.
According to TMZ, the “Goosebumps” rapper has filed paperwork to trademark the name “S.P.A.C.E.” with plans of launching a wide array of products, including clothing, jewelry, cosmetics, fragrances and non-alcoholic beverages.
He also filed documents to acquire the rights to the names “”S.P.A.C.E 1991” and “S.P.A.C.E 2001,” although it remains unclear what those years symbolize.
Perhaps Scott is just a huge Stanley Kubrick fan.
