Detroit's Kanye West fans can buy a taste of "The Life of Pablo" this weekend following the rapper-turned-fashion mogul's announcement of 21 pop-up stores worldwide that will be open for just three days, beginning Friday.

West tweeted a map Wednesday night with red dots indicating the stores' locations. Thirteen stores will be in major cities in the U.S. - including Detroit.

Others will be in Toronto, London, Berlin, Amsterdam, Singapore, Sydney, Melbourne and Cape Town.

West is expanding the pop-up store concept following similar events in New York, Los Angeles and Paris earlier this year. West says the New York event generated $2 million in sales of items including thrift store jackets customized by West for $400.
