Kanye West wants to sell his Yeezy and Balenciaga hoodies for just $20
The rapper has taken matters into his own hands after his partnering brands refused to sell his old stock.
In a new Instagram video shared by Threaducation, Kanye West announced that he’ll be selling archive hoodies from Yeezy, Balenciaga, GAP and Adidas for just $20.
In the video, the rapper is seen walking around what looks to be an upcoming sample sale. ”So what we do here is, I’ve cut up like 100 hoodies. From Yeezy, from Balenciaga, stuff we did with GAP, stuff we did with Adidas, and everything we do is gonna cost $20,” explains Ye. “We need to make sure that everyone can receive the same level of cut, the same level of food, same level of water and the same level of education.”
The musician went on to say that ”we’re beings with engineering opportunities. We’re getting past the past. We’re focused on the future,” in a seeming reference to the backlash he recently received for his anti-Semitic comments and “White Lives Matter” T-shirt.
Ye’s return to social media comes shortly after Elon Musk reversed Twitter’s previous banning rules, welcoming the likes of Ye, Donald Trump and Azealia Banks back to the platform if they so wished.
It’s unclear as to when Ye’s sample sale may take place, but we imagine that the rapper will be sharing some updates pretty soon, one way or another.
