OUTFIT OF THE DAY
Outfit of the day #922

He may have just released a fresh drop of his own Saint Pablo tour merch, but Kanye West chose to rep another rapper while in New York this week.
Sure, West is very vocal about his fondness for certain fast food outlets, Frank Ocean and well, Kanye West, but when it comes to his clothes, he keeps it strictly old school. Music merch is basically standard-issue kit for Kanye and while we can’t be sure he’s actually a fan of Queen, The Rolling Stones, Nirvana, or any of the other bands he's rocked on tees over the years, this isn’t the first time he’s shown Tupac Shakur some sartorial love.
This time around, West goes for an oversized black tee with Tupac’s face brightly emblazoned on the front and back. It’s a rare vintage cut that features lyrics from Pac’s politically charged 1993 track Keep Ya Head Up. Elsewhere, he keeps things low-key with some washed-black skinny jeans and a black belt, and updates the look nicely with his own Yeezy 1050 boots. We’re huge fans.
