Balenciaga had already said they’d be giving the net profits back to the fam — but the fact those sales produced a million dollars is staggering. Then again, the shirt was retailing for $200 a pop … so we suppose it makes sense. The DMX tribute shirt sold out in 24 hours.
There’s another way Kanye got involved in Saturday’s ceremony — which Swizz Beatz actually alluded to during the event. Yes, we’ve heard Kanye and the Yeezy team did, in fact, design the stage where the Sunday Service choir performed, and where guests also spoke.
You might’ve noticed the elaborate set pieces at play — the stage looked like an inverted pyramid … or maybe even two. Our sources say Ye recruited renowned visual artist Akeem Smith to help with the layout … and it looks like their joint efforts paid off, because it definitely made for quite a spectacle — one that was worthy of DMX and his loved ones.
As you can imagine, Kanye and X were incredibly close … and while Ye wasn’t seen publicly, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t there. Our sources tell us the contrary is true … Kanye was, indeed, present during the Barclays memorial, but just maintained a low profile.
