Kanye West Selling T-Shirts With His Mother Donda and the Late Robert Kardashian's Faces on Them

Posted on

Kanye West
is eternalizing the memory of his late mother and father-in-law, Donda West and Robert Kardashian.

According to a tweet from Complex magazine’s deputy editor, the rapper sold T-shirts — which seem to be exact replicas of the one he wore — at his Yeezy Season 3 fashion show in Madison Square Garden on Thursday.

On the front of the t-shirt is an airbrushed image of West’s mother, who died in 2007 from heart disease and complications following surgery. On the back, is a similarly airbrushed photo of

‘s late father Robert Kardashian, who died from cancer in 2003.

Above both pictures are the words “in loving memory.”

Along with the shirt, West’s mother also inspired his latest business endeavor — a new video game, which he premiered at his Tidal livestream event.

Only One: The Game, features Donda riding a white pegasus into the gates of heaven.

“The idea is that it’s my mother going through the gates of heave,” West said in an interview last February. “You’ve got to bring her to the highest gate of heaven by holding her to the light.”

But, his mother isn’t the only one who’s offered inspiration. The rapper also credits his father-in-law for watching over the production of his album.

“He’s still doing deals for controversial black people from up in heaven,” West said in radio interview earlier this month.
