In a previous interview with Complex, Brown implied that Donda Sports would provide comfortable looks for athletes as part of Kanye West’s expansive fashion business.

Last week, Brown was pictured court side at a high school basketball game in Chicago with West and rapper Da Baby.

A press release from Donda Sports, shared by Hollywood Unlocked, also stated that Brown will “bring an athlete’s perspective to all aspects of the organization,” as it indicates his role, and the work of Donda Sports, will move beyond the fashion industry and may encompass sports management.

The release describes the company as a “limitless organization centered on professional and wellness support in equal measure with the ambition to work with athletes across all genders divisions and sports.” The press release continues, “Donda Sports also encompasses athlete representation a full serviced sports brand including apparel sneakers and much more.”
