Kanye West fans can buy a taste of “The Life of Pablo” following the rapper-turned-fashion mogul’s announcement of pop-up stores that will be open just this weekend in Chicago and 20 other locations worldwide.

West tweeted a map with red dots indicating the stores’ locations Wednesday night. Fourteen of the stores will be in major cities in the U.S.

As of Thursday afternoon, the precise store hours and addresses for locations in Australia, Africa, Europe and Asia were listed with the map at www.kanyewest.com/temporarystores, but information on U.S. stores was still pending.

The other U.S. sites will be in New York City, Philadelphia, Boston, Atlanta, Miami, Dallas, Houston, Detroit, Portland (Oregon), Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and San Francisco.

“Each temporary store will not only carry a broad line of Kanye’s Pablo merch available only in stores– but will also include limited edition designs, exclusive to that city,” said a statement from West’s label, Def Jam.

West appears to be expanding the pop-up store concept following a successful run at a New York City location in March. The New York Daily News reports that shoppers lined up for blocks to snatch a piece of clothing inspired by “Pablo,” West’s latest album. A recycled Levis jacket customized by West was on sale at the store for $400.
