Kanye West Pays Tribute to His Late Mother and Robert Kardashian Sr. With Airbrushed T-Shirt
By John Boone
Kanye West is always trying to say something with his fashion choices.
The rapper rocked a red shirt that said "I Feel Like Pablo" -- a nod to his new album, The Life of Pablo -- during his Yeezy Season 3 event on Thursday, but backstage 'Ye wore a T-shirt that paid tribute to two late family members.
The front of the shirt was airbrushed with a portrait of Kanye's late mother, Donda West, with "In Loving Memory" written above her smiling face.
Yeezy also used the event to debut a look at his first video game, Only One: The Game, which he made in memory of Donda, who died in 2007 following cosmetic surgery complications. As Kanye says, the idea of the game is, "My mom traveling through the gates of heaven."
He also raps about his mother on a new track, "Father Stretch My Hands," rhyming, "Pops is good / Mamma pass in Hollywood / If you ask / Lost my soul / Driving fast / Lost control."
