The Buzz: Yeezy's Latest Rant, MMG's New Signees and More
Kanye Vs. Barneys?
By now, we're all privy to the fact that luxury store Barneys New York has been accused of racial profiling and that Jay Z was being pressured by fans to sever ties with them since he collaborted with the retailer on an exclusive line of gifts this holiday season. Although Jay Z has already addressed the situation, Kanye West decided to discuss it during a recent show. He was spotted leaving the retailer recently wearing his now signature jacket with the Confederate flag on the sleeve. Was he trying to send a message? Probably. Did he rant about it? Absolutely. Check what he had to say during a show in New Mexico below:
"That's that racial profiling outside Barneys and s--t, talking about, 'Did you steal that?'"
Keep on trying to push the culture forward Yeezy, it'll all be alright.
