Kanye West Debuts $120 Plain White T-Shirt, It Sells Out Immediately…Huh?!

Nice Move

It looks like being a new father hasn’t stopped Kanye West from pushing the boundary on stupidity. The rapper, skirt wearer, and sperm donor to Kim Kardashian has debuted his latest work of art: a plain white t-shirt.

Reportedly, Kanye teamed up with French fashion label A.P.C to create the nine-piece capsule collection which has been two years in the making. Yes, you read that right. It took TWO FUCKING YEARS to conceptualize nine pieces of clothing, two of them being a plain white and plain black t-shirt, respectively. Yeezus Christ.

What. The. Fuck?

Seriously?! What the fuck is wrong with people these days? The worldwide economy is in the shitter and yet there’s still people who justify dropping $120 on a plain white t-shirt, simply because it was designed by Kanye West?

I’m pretty sure this so-called “Hip Hop T-shirt” is the exact same one you can scoop off the J. Crew sale rack for $12.

Not one thing special about it, at all, yet it sold out online just hours after its debut. My head is seriously spinning in disbelief at the stupidity exhibited by anyone who thought it was a great idea to buy this shirt. Do you know how many white t-shirts I ruin in a months time? Easily 5 or 6. I’m a man; it’s just our nature. The difference? Well, I spend about $10 on average for each one.

For those of you that didn’t read my “Things Wrong With America” column addressing the douchebaggery that Kanye carries with him in every walk of life, I’ll be plain with you: I hate the dude.

Yeezus was a terrible album, regardless of what you or any music critic says, and there’s a clear cut reason why Jay-Z left Magna Carta Holy Grail devoid of Kanye’s influence. I know that “Holy Grail” and “Oceans” were recorded during the Watch The Throne sessions, but clearly, Hova had good reason to keep them for himself, despite Kanye lobbying to include them on the duo’s project.

Simply put, Kanye’s pretentiousness has gone too far, and this latest high-end fashion escapade only contributes to that fact.

    This is nothing in the world of “high fashion”. Rappers and other wealthy celebs are shelling out thousands on seemingly plain goods just because of the name behind it. For example, those plain black sweaters Steve Jobs wore? $700 a piece. It’s ridiculous what branding can do, but hey, why stop if idiots are buying it.

      To be fair, a lot of the brands people talk about on this site are doing the same thing. And Steve Jobs could spend 2g’s on a sweater and his bank account wouldn’t notice.

    I heard some people talking about how his song “new slaves” is about how people slave themselves to doing whatever the media tells them to do, like $120 plain white t-shirts.

      ^^ 100% Accurate. I tend to think he feeds his ego feeling like he is educating the masses about their unholy worship of the dollar bill then turns around and feeds his ego even more by being able to make money off such a stupid concept. In the end its all about feeding his own ego.

      the new slavery started in the ’60s with the welfare state. the Dems supply the food stamps and the blacks supply 13 mil votes in every election. votes are the new cotton.

      Even more specifically it’s literally about how black people have once again become slaves but this time to their own materialistic desires. I can’t tell if this shirt is blatant hypocrisy or a tongue-in-cheek joke. I actually lean more towards the latter. Kanye is pretty openly mocking his own fans with this shirt but most people are too dumb to realize it and instead act “outraged” which is the point.

      tl;dr Kanye is laughing at you
