Kanye West isn’t shying away from politics, in fact the rapper has created a new line of clothing in which he urges Black Americans to step away from the Democratic party.
Kanye, who recently visited President Trump at the White House and asserted wearing a MAGA hat made him feel like a superhero, created a line of apparel for a campaign called Blexit. According to The Guardian, the conservative campaign is spearheaded by YouTube star and media personality Candace Owens with Kanye’s designs unveiled at this weekend’s Young Black Leadership Summit.

Speaking to Page Six, Owens revealed of Blexit and Kanye’s designs, “Blexit is a renaissance and I am blessed to say that this logo, these colors, were created by my dear friend and superhero Kanye West.”
Blexit, which is short for Black Exit, encourages the black community to “abandon an emotionally abusive relationship with the Democratic party, in pursuit of freedom over tyranny,” according to USA Today.
