Let’s All Sigh Together: Kanye West Cosigns Candace Owens ‘Blexit’ Movement With New Collection
Despite all the backlash Kanye West has received from the culture for supporting Trump, he will not stop campaigning for No. 45 and what he stands for. After a Saturday Night Live rant about why he supports the Make America Great Again campaign and a recent visit to the White House, his latest antic involves a new line of clothing.
XXL reports that Yeezy has collaborated with Candace Owens for a line of shirts and hats that support her Blexit group, which urges for African-American people to leave the Democratic Party. Over the weekend ( Oct. 27) at the Young Black Leadership Summit Owens revealed that she had the support of the Chicago rapper and that he had designed a line of clothing in support of her campaign.
The collection consists of long and short sleeve shirts with the Blexit logo on the front, the phrases “The Standard,” “We Free” and “The People.”

Prices range from $25 to $28.
Owens explained Blexit’s mission as “the Black exit from permanent victimhood, the Black exit from the false idea that we are somehow separate from the rest of America,” during the summit.
Owens and West connected after he tweeted his support for the conservative media personality.
“I love the way Candace Owens thinks,” he posted back in April.
Owens, who publicly shaded the Black Lives Matter movement, responded enthusiastically and asked for a meeting.
“I’m freaking out. @kanyewest ….please take a meeting with me,” she tweeted. “I tell every single person that everything that I have been inspired to do, was written in your music. I am my own biggest fan, because you made it okay. I need you to help wake up the black community.”
