Kanye West attacks Gap | Entertainment News

Kanye West has accused Gap of “copying” his work.

The 45-year-old rapper – who has a 10-year collaboration agreement with the outlet – claimed the retailer had ripped ideas from his Yeezy Gap Engineered by Balenciaga collaboration with their own designs.

He shared an exchange of messages with an unknown person, in which the texter had sent a link to a photo of a navy blue T-shirt with the Gap logo on the front with the message: “This is a copy of Gap – YGEEB.”

Kanye replied: Exactly.

“Do you want me to post this text message?” »

The ‘Stronger’ rapper – who has North, nine, Saint, six, Chicago, four and three-year-old Psalm with ex-wife Kim Kardashian – used the post’s caption to air another grievance about the company, claimed that they had canceled a planned photo shoot with his children without his knowledge.

He wrote, “But they canceled the photoshoot with my kids in Japan without me knowing. (sic)”

In a separate post, Kanye claimed he was kicked out of meetings by Gap.

He shared a photo of Yeezy Gap sunglasses and wrote, “Gap held a meeting on me without me?”

The ‘Bound 2’ hitmaker also shared a video in which he addressed a group, possibly Gap staff.

He said, “It’s not celebrity marketing. It’s not a collaboration. It’s a mission of life.”

And in a late post, Kanye denounced both Gap and another of his collaborators, Adidas, for failing to deliver on their promise to build “permanent stores” for their businesses.

Sharing his plans to open independent Yeezy stores around the world, starting in Atlanta, he wrote, “I will purchase the land and/or the building. Then we will open in all states and then internationally.

“Anyone who has 10+ years of retail experience and is ready to change the world, post your Instagram handle or store location in the comments and we’ll find you.

“I signed with Adidas and Gap because they contractually stipulated that they would build permanent stores, which neither company did, although I saved both companies at the same time. (sic )”
