One 19-year-old Kanye West superfan has a merch collection so impressive, it'll make even the most dedicated of Ye fans blush. Chico is the subject of a new brief documentary Def Jam put together, and he's got perhaps the biggest collection of Kanye merch around, including items so rare that they might even be one-of-one pieces.
As the synopsis for the documentary explains, Chico has managed to hunt merch so vintage it's almost unbelievable. From "nearly-extinct concert bootlegs to one-of-one pieces that were never released," he's got everything from the early days of Chicago's finest. In fact, he's even gotten a hold of some staff-only T-shirts that were given to people who worked with Kanye on either records or tours.
Fortunately for people just as much into Yeezy as he is, Chico has decided to put some of the best pieces of his collection on sale in a special pop-up shop in Los Angeles in partnership with Def Jam. The installation is currently open at Endangered and will run until Sunday, Sept. 23.
"I collect first, for myself," he explains in the documentary. "I mean, I've lost sleep over the hunt. There was days where I was just nonstop looking."
