Kanye West is upset with Gap for counting him out in the leadership
Kanye West's legal team sent a letter to Gap on Thursday (September 15) to notify them that Ye is ending their partnership. Later on that day, the rapper appeared on CNBC's Closing Bell to further clarify his reasons to leave the deal.
“[They] priced my stuff at $200 and above their whole price point normally and then did the exact shirt for $20,” Ye said during the interview. “Also, they did pop-ups and I signed on with them because in the contract they said they were gonna do stores and they just ignored us about building stores constantly.
He added: “It was very frustrating, it was very disheartening because I just put everything I had [into it]… Everyone knows I'm the leader, I'm the king. So a king can't live in someone else's castle. A king has to make his own castle.”
“Don't bring a leader in and have them not lead. Why would I argue with people who are getting paid by the Gap. I'm sorry, I'm not gonna argue with people that are broker than me about money.”
