Kanye West is giving back to his hometown of Chicago during All-Star weekend.

The Jesus Is Born rapper debuted his latest YZY QNTM shoe model by giving them out to people in Wicker Park, a neighborhood in Chicago. Secret Sherp ATVs drove through the streets and handed them out to crowds of people at random. Throughout the rest of the day, the ATVs will be parked in different locations to give the shoes away.

West teased the new YZY QNTM sneaker back in 2018 when he shared images of the shoe on Instagram claiming that the NBA was going to ban the shoe because of it’s reflective-like heel. Last week, Yeezy Mafia leaked information about the upcoming release. Apparently, two models of the YZY QNTM are slated to release. The Adidas YZY QNTM is scheduled to be released for $250 in select stores in Chicago on Feb. 16.

West is set to hold Sunday Service this weekend ahead of the All-Star Game.

West tweeted, “Sunday Service Experience Credit Union 1 Arena, Chicago Sunday February 16th 2pm,” with a direct link to purchase the tickets from Ticketmaster.

West and Joel Osteen are teaming up for what could be the biggest Sunday Service yet. The two are set to host “An Evening with Joel & Victoria Osteen featuring Kanye West & the Sunday Service Choir” at the Yankee Stadium on May 2.

“The remarkable music talent and excitement that Kanye and the choir brought to Lakewood was fantastic. To see people from all walks of life and all different backgrounds coming to worship together was truly a night to remember,” said Osteen. “Victoria and I are so excited to bring this event to the iconic Yankee Stadium. I believe everyone who attends will be truly inspired and filled with an expectation that their best days are yet to come.”

The tickets for this Sunday’s (Feb. 16) service are completely sold out. Check out the video of West’s team handing out the Yeezys to everyone.
