Kanye West may be known as one of the top hip-hop stars, but he is always a lightning rod for controversy, mainly for getting into feuds. This time around, he has beef with an iconic fashion company.
According to a post on his Instagram account, Ye accused GAP of copying his designs and taking shots at the retail giant for allegedly leaving him out of meetings.
Ye’s now gone off on the company for two days in a row, first announcing Tuesday, “Gap held a meeting about me without me?” Then on Wednesday, he posted a text exchange with someone accusing GAP of copying Yeezy GAP Engineered by Balenciaga’s designs on a standard GAP T-shirt.
According to Kanye, GAP also backed out of a shoot with his kids. He went off on them with a simple response on Instagram.
“But they canceled the photo shoot with my kids in Japan without me knowing.”
Kanye’s Yeezy GAP line has been highly successful so far, with impressive online and in-store sales. Although the relationship has become strained with him not having as much of an opinion on the operations.
Kayne and GAP’s relationship has been up and down for two years now. We’ll see what happens down the road between the two.
