Kanye West Ends Deal with Gap over Communist China Ties: ‘We Can Bring Industry Back to America’

Rapper Kanye West has ended his deal with Gap over the clothing company’s tied to Communist China.

West told CNBC’s “Closing Bell” that he ended his contract between his brand Yeezy and Gap Inc. because “they have a lot of commitments to China.”

The music star added that he wants to bring manufacturing back to America instead.

“It was always a dream of mine to be at the Gap and to bring the best product possible to the masses,” West said.

“And I always talked to them about doing products for $20, like the best product in the world designed at the same level of the top fashion houses in the world at $20 for the people.

“And so we went through three years.

“You know, honestly, there’s always like struggles and back and forth when you’re trying to build something new and integrate teams.

“So we designed an entire collection, and actually, I wasn’t able to set the actual price that I wanted for this collection, and then they actually took one of the shirts and sold it for $19.

“Didn’t price my stuff, priced my stuff at like 200 and above their whole price point normally, and then did the exact shirt for $20.

“Also, they did pop-ups.
