You never know what you're going to get from Kanye West's Twitter account on a daily basis. Just a few hours after posting videos gallivanting through the forest and a photo of a crocodile, Yeezy then put the idea of getting together with Bob Dylan into the universe through a simple tweet on Wednesday (Dec. 12).

"Calling out to Bob Dylan Let’s get together," the 41-year-old wrote. He didn't provide any clarity with follow-up notions as to what the meeting would entail, but critics in the past have drawn parallels between each of their polarizing career paths. A Reddit thread created by user @Strangers_pilgrims earlier in 2018 shrewdly pointed out that West alienating a portion of his fanbase with his political aspirations is comparable to the "Blowin' in the Wind" artist's stark career pivot in the '60s from folk to electric guitar and Christian music. "I don't know if Kanye has a lot to say about Bob Dylan -- but I bet he'd be right up the dudes alley, as far as ideological inquisitiveness goes," the user contested.

Outside of his hopes to sit down with the 77-year-old, West's YEEZY-printed merchandise collection commemorating XXXTentacion and their posthumous Skins collab "One Minute" is now available at X's official online shop. The three-piece capsule featuring original imagery designed by JJ Villard and includes a t-shirt, long sleeve, and hoodie. Prices for each item range from $70 to $175 and will only be available until Friday.
