The “Gold Digger” artist commemorated the debut of his Yeezy X Gap brand’s commercial by sharing a recorded clip of the ad playing on a wall-mounted TV.
The rapper proved his status as a creative genius remained undisputed as the label’s commercial also served as the music video for “Heaven and Hell,” a song from his 2021 album, “DONDA.”
That’s right! The “Heartless” singer was far from cold-blooded when it came to his mother as he continues to honor her memory through his music and other ventures.
For his latest milestone, Ye paid tribute to the late professor by writing, “Our first yzy gap commercial, mama we made it,” in addition to a teary-eyed emoji.
Regarding the video, various models were captured donning the new black hoodies from the Yeezy X Gap label as they walked, sat, or stood still in an eerie dark city.
The people had their faces hidden behind sheer black masks, while the 22-time Grammy winner appeared to be wearing a black mask with a large gold zipper.
The 44-year-old was seen rapping in a storm made from bodies swirling through the air, with a bright light at the middle of the vortex — which could be a representation of heaven.
