Kanye West is Unhappy that the GAP brand Copies the Design of His T-shirts
Kanye West accused the largest retailer of clothing in the United States – GAP that the company does not invite him to work meetings and copies his design.
According to the rapper, some pieces of the new brand collection are very similar to the design of his collaboration named Yeezy Gap Engineered by Balenciaga.
So, he published a post where he accuses GAP’s standard design of copying the design of Yeezy Gap Engineered by Balenciaga.
In addition, Kanye West added that the GAP brand with whom the rapper has a joint collection does not invite it to discuss working issues.
As an example, the company canceled the planned photo shooting in Japan, where Kanye’s children should have taken part, and did not inform him about that.

Which of his four children with Kim Kardashian was supposed to go to Japan, West did not clarify.
In July, he wrote that in cooperation with the GAP’s Director they managed to sell Black Hoods at $ 14 million. The collaboration of Yeezy and GAP was announced in 2020. It began with the release of a blue gun jacket made of recycled nylon.
Kanye West also stated that he was going to open Yeezy shops around the world and added that he literally “saved” GAP and Adidas, concluding contracts with them.
Earlier this month West was criticized on social networks due to the fact that the collection of Yeezy, Balenciaga, and GAP at the rapper’s request was put up for sale in huge bags. Such a “trick” made customers have to “dig in the bags” and look for clothes themselves.
In a response to criticism, Kanye called himself an “innovator” and is not going to apologize for his ideas.
