Rucuss staffOctober 21, 2013

Kanye West kicked off his Yeezus Tour over the weekend and its merchandise features images of the Confederate flag.

The New Slaves rapper made sure his merchandise for the tour was as controversial as the show, which features masks, a mountain and a Jesus impersonator. The t-shirts feature 80s-inspired heavy metal designs, along with confederate flags.

The merchandise is a collaboration with artist Wes Lang and features an image of a skeleton complete in a Native American headdress and traditional garments with the text “God Wants You.” Another has a skeleton holding a hatchet, drapped with a confederate flag. Prices for the merchandise range from $20 to $80.

West’s friend Been Trill  founder, and “style adviser,” posted images of the gear with a caption of the sickle wielding design reading, “Our mama’s were raised in an era when.. The touring merchandise collection of thoughts Doors open in 1 hour #yeezustour #weslang.”
