Ladies and gentlemen, be prepared to be amazed, maybe even in awe. Rapper Kanye West has designed a t-shirt that may very well revolutionize the clothing industry. That’s right: It’s the Kanye West t-shirt with a plain white design.
Yeezus posted the “new” design online, and his masterful creation of nothingness quickly sold out. What’s most amazing is the t-shirt’s $120 price tag.
So what does one get for a plain white t-shirt designed by Kanye West? Here’s the description:
“Very loose T-shirt in Egyptian cotton. Short sleeves. Ribbing at neckline. Reinforced neckline and shoulders. ‘A.P.C. KANYE’ silkscreened inside neckline”.
To put the t-shirt into perspective, Kanye West just sold a $.50 t-shirt to a bunch of fashion crazed wannabes for a profit of about $120.
But how could anyone pass up the chance to own a plain white Kanye West t-shirt that has his name screen-printed on the inside of the neck.
Don’t worry if you missed your chance to buy the shirt, you can still pre-order his $265 blue jeans or a $250 short-sleeve hoodie.
You know when you walk into an art gallery and there is a plain white canvas with a very subtle off-white line running down the middle and the painting costs $100,000. That painting is Kanye West’s new plain white t-shirt.
With that being said, I have to applause Kanye West; he didn’t even have to come up with some BS reason for the plain white t-shirt. He could have taken the artist approach by claiming it was a statement on whitewashing or something else involving the color white. Instead Kanye just said, “hey my name is on this and its made out of that rare material known as cotton.”

Could you possibly justify spending $120 on a plain white t-shirt that has your favorite celebrity’s name written on the neck?
