News tonight that Kanye West is now making T shirts for something called “Blexit” encouraging black people to leave the Democratic party for Trumpland, not explaining that’s where they will be destroyed. Blexit is the work of nutcase rightwinger Candace Owens.
Kanye’s insistence on doubling down over and over on Trump has not helped his business. His “Ye” album, priced at $7.99, has sold just 60,000 copies since its release on June 1st. Including streaming of the album and all its singles, he’s up to 250,000. A gold record is issued for 500,000 in certified sales. He’s halfway there. Not even his “SNL” performance a few weeks ago helped sell copies.
Meanwhile, Kanye’s Yeezy 350 v2 sneakers, distributed by Adidas, are at number 358 on amazon.com’s best seller list of men’s sneakers, running. To give you some comparison New Balance 990s (which I wear) are at number 8. Yeezy’s, which can range in price into the thousands, aren’t selling. I’ve never see another human wearing them. If you own a pair, email me at email@example.com, send a photo, let me know how much you paid.
