Ye has had no problem voicing his opinions on controversial topics. He was loud about his support for former President Donald Trump, and now he is loud with his support of “White Lives Matter,” as he wears a shirt during his Yeezy SZN9 debut.

Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, has been making headlines attending Fashion Show week prior to debuting his Yeezy SZN9 collection. Over the weekend, he modeled in the Balenciaga Summer 2023 collection, opening the show in a super secure full-body armor outfit. In addition to his runway debut, Ye sported flip-flops around London that were decked out with jewels with black socks.
Fashion is a category Ye has owned for a while; though his questionable products and selling techniques, Yeezy’s estimated sales in a year are around $1.7 billion. The popular casual athleisure brand contributes to a good amount of Ye’s income.
On Sunday, Ye took to Instagram to announce his last-minute presentation for Yeezy SZN9 at Paris Fashion Week, which showed a couple of familiar faces.
