Kanye West is no stranger to pushing fashion boundaries. Before his Yeezus tour kicked off in Seattle this weekend, the producer/rapper rocked a provocative shirt featuring a half-naked Kim Kardashian accompanied by the word “Yeezus.”
TMZ has a photo of Ye’s t-shirt emblazoned with the image of Kim from what appears to be her 2007 Playboy photoshoot. Kim stands topless, covered by several strings of pearls.
The t-shirt was only the teaser for Ye’s controversial new tour. RapFix was on hand as Kanye and Jesus took over Seattle for an undoubtedly religious hip-hop experience. Kanye pulled out all the stops with flashing lights, faux snow, a mountain from which to rap atop and of course, a Jesus Christ figure.
“White Jesus, is that you?” Kanye asked at one point. Ye closed with 2004’s “Jesus Walks” and “Bound 2.” At the end, Kanye and his 12 female “disciples” bowed to the portrayal of Jesus on the mountain.
