Kanye West is credited for being one of the biggest names in the world of hip-hop, but he is also a true genius when it comes to business as well. His accolades simply speak for themselves. However, he remains a controversial figure even now.
As of late, Kanye West has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons once again. This is largely due to him wearing a ‘White Lives Matter’ t-shirt during his Yeezy fashion show.
While speaking to TMZ, entrepreneur, record executive, and film producer Kareem “Biggs” Burke shared his thoughts on Kanye West’s controversial t-shirt. He made it clear that he hates the t-shirt as well.
“I condemn the shirt. I’m not with that.”
Biggs stated that West made the t-shirt in response to Black Lives Matter, which might result in disaster. He added that it’s important not to misconstrue the BLM movement with the corporation, which has been under fire due to some executives allegedly misappropriating funds, including the purchase of a $6 million mansion.
Biggs stated Kanye’s shirt hurts the families of slain victims such as Trayvon Martin, George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. Kanye and Biggs’ relationship dates back to the start of Ye’s professional career when he first signed to the Roc in the early 2000s. Regardless, Kanye West defended his t-shirt and doesn’t care what anyone else has to say on the matter.
