- Rap and fashion mogul Kanye West announced the location of 21 pop-up stores around the world and it didn't take long for fans to start camping out.

The first two "Pablo" (based on his latest album, 'The Life of Pablo') pop-up stores opened in Australia.

The New York City location at 393 Broadway in TriBeCa opened Friday at 10 a.m.

The line wrapped around the corner and down the next block just moments before doors opened. Some fans were on line as early as Thursday evening.

"I'm hoping to buy whatever I can to re-sell whatever I can, to make money," one fan told FOX 5 News.

The popular 'Yeezys' sneakers are not available at the NYC shop which will be open from Aug. 19- Aug. 21

At West's shop in Sydney, Australia, only three people at a time were allowed into the blackened out studio that served as the store. Shoppers were not allowed to touch the merchandise before buying.

Items for sale included a $400 military jacket and a $50 baseball cap.

West opened a pop-up store in NYC in March which quickly sold out of all its items.
