Kanye West met with Calabasas High School to discuss revamping their sports program's uniforms.

According to TMZ, the rapper met with officials from the Los Angeles-area school and wants to change its mascot from the Coyotes to Wolves as part of the arrangement.

He reportedly offered to make "a sizable donation to improve school facilities—including major upgrades to the gym."

When speaking to TMZ last August, West expressed his desire to design school uniforms in Chicago as "a starting point for eventually ending classism and bullying worldwide." The California resident seemingly decided to begin his plan locally.

Per TMZ, Calabasas has a sponsorship deal with Adidas, which owns his Yeezy brand. The school has not reached a decision.
