Despite bashing the high-end store during his Yeezus concert in Las Vegas back in October, rapper Kanye West was spotted leaving Barney’s New York in Beverly Hills earlier this week.
The “I Am A God” rapper rocked a green bomber emblazoned jacket with a confederate flag on the arm, a Yeezus t-shirt from his tour merchandise, cutted-up jeans and Visvim sneakers.
Yeezus clothing design is sort of a hot topic amongst fans and blogs. According to the new dad, “the confederate flag represented slavery in a way. That’s my abstract take on what I know about it right? he said during an interview with Los Angeles’ 97.1 radio station.
He added: “So I wrote the song New Slaves. I took the Confederate flag and claimed it as my own. It’s my flag now. Now what you gonna do?”
I don’t know if Mr. West was trying to make a statement inside the store with “his clothes” since the store is currently under investigation for racially profiling African Americans. Or maybe he was just trying to shake a table or two for publicity. However, he sure had us “chit-chatting” about his sudden trip to the store.
