Hypebeast stories that the bear is really the mascot of the college the place the photoshoot for the album passed off. The college refused to promote the costume to the report label, so as an alternative, West obtained his personal personalized bear swimsuit. He went on to put on it on the quilt of his album and to The Grammys and Hollywood occasions to advertise The College Dropout.
