Sunday (April 25), TMZ reported that sources in Kanye’s camp told them the shirt was quickly raked into seven figures after it went on sale on April 24 and sold out within hours. As announced, the net benefits of the one-time drop will go to the children of DMX.
The shirt, which was made by luxury brand Balenciaga at West’s behest, hit the Net this weekend. The oversized long-sleeved shirt features an image of X, which is flanked by two crosses. The acronym RIP is above his head. His dates of birth and death appear on the sleeve. Even at a high asking price of $ 200, the shirts flew off the site.
XXL contacted Kanye’s team for confirmation.
The downfall of the shirt coincided with what was essentially DMX end commemorative weekend. On April 24, a public memorial service took place for the rapper at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY Event ticketing was limited due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, thousands of people showed up to pay their respects to the influential rapper, born Earl Simmons, including Kanye, who performed with his Sunday Service Choir. Kanye is also said to have designed the scene for the event. On Sunday April 25, a private homecoming ceremony was held which only close friends and family from DMX attended. Both events were broadcast live on X’s YouTube page.
