Everyone knows the legend of how Cudi met Kanye at the Bape store and handed him his demo. But few knew the story of what happened when Kanye bought a jacket. After failing to remove the security sensor on the jacket, Cudi had to chase Kanye down in SoHo to fix it. In September 2009, BAPE gave Cudi his own T-shirt in honor of his music career and time spent as an employee there.
When Kanye came to the BAPE store Cudi worked at, he bought a jacket that Cudi forgot to remove a security sensor for.
