Why Is This Artist Demanding a Lifetime Supply of Yeezys?

Kanye wanted this photo removed from the Internet, remember?

What would you do for a lifetime supply of Yeezys?

For one artist, the answer is simple: he’d honor Kanye West’s wishes and remove his latest masterpiece from the public space its currently occupying.

As reported, a 20-foot mural, inspired by a meme of ‘Ye kissing ‘Ye, has been painted in Australia by Scott Marsh, and West is anything but amused.

The mural was inspired by a photoshopped photo of him passionately embracing his wife, Kim Kardashian, to instead depict the rapper kissing himself. West in the past has asked for the photo to be removed from the Internet, which is basically an impossible task. 

According to reports, West has offered a large sum of money to the artist, in exchange for his covering up the street art version of the now-viral image. Marsh has responded to West’s offer, raising him to $100,000 — and a lifetime supply of Yeezy’s. 

“It’s an open invitation to Kanye,” Marsh said. “If he buys that print, then I’ll paint over the mural.”

So far, the deal is still pending, with the decision left in West's hands.
