Every Flight Comes with Free Bling!

kanyegnome.jpgIn the world of Hip-Hop, it’s not uncommon to consider yourself a brand and then peddle your wares. Eve, Beyonce, Eminem, Jay-Z all have or had fashion lines. Nelly and Lil John had beverages on the market. Many have opened clubs and restaurants. The list could go on and on.

Kanye West is breaking new ground, however. He’s decided to… ::drumroll:: … start his own travel website, Kanye Travel Ventures.

If you look at the site, it’s fairly… well, craptacular. Normally I’d say this was some kind of April Fool’s joke, except it’s April 2nd now.

According to Advertising Age, the site will eventually offer “travel packages with tickets to his concerts and concert merchandise.” Ya know. Besides low, low airfares and bargain car rentals.

And even though the company’s logo at the bottom of the page isn’t properly trimmed and posted(as of 4/2, anyway), the site is apparently legit. They’re linked up with Travelocity.

So, die-hard Kanye fans, brace yourselves. You will soon be able to get a great deal on following Mr. West to 15 cities so you can hear him perform “Stronger” 15 times.
