From fashion power moves to controversial statements; Ye (Kanye West) return to X with YEEZY's Gosha Rubchinskiy collab, Elon Musk, KKK-style hoods, and 13 12 23 YEWS NEWS.
Ye Is Still A Genius: We Love It!
It's no secret that we're fans of Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, 46, and we've happily found ourselves on a wild ride through a digital rollercoaster of highs and lows. The latest chapter in Ye's "genius" involves a triumphant return to X (formerly Twitter), Elon Musk's bold educational venture, a groundbreaking collaboration with Gosha Rubchinskiy, and a controversial fashion choice that has sparked a storm of controversy.
Ye's resurgence on X was nothing short of a spectacle, especially his critics who are still emphasising "anti-semitism." The post that announced his return, complete with a link to his website, YEWS NEWS (13 12 23), is triggering haters through the online world, and of course, it's no surprise considering his past Jewish remarks. The post featured an image with text in both English and Russian, proclaiming the legendary Russian designer Gosha Rubchinskiy as YEEZY's new Head of Design - a move hailed as a milestone in design history.
Taking to X, Ye said: "LOS ANGELES, CA.—YEEZY welcomes Gosha Rubchinskiy as its new Head of Design today. The arrival of this legendary Russian designer at YEEZY, the pre-eminent global brand in music and fashion, is a milestone in design history."
Ye Returns To X (Twitter)
Ye (Formerly Kanye West) is back on X. His site, Yews News, which caters to only mobile devices, is simple but yet cryptic.— TANIZZLE.com (@iTanizzle) December 13, 2023
We navigated the site and found ourselves at https://t.co/GVw80vLGEp; heard the track featuring the "Everybody" sample recently hyped! Long Live YE! https://t.co/eBPINOywOL
Ye's Cryptic Messages?
Whilst exploring the elusive intrigue of YEWS NEWS, we (Tanizzle), ingeniously crafted by a tech-nerd well-versed in an array of programming skills, including the intricate artistry of Kali Linux, dwelled on a riveting journey. Armed with Chrome Developer tools and a touch of playful mischief to trick the browser into a mobile device facade, we unraveled the digital labyrinth to reveal a simplistic blog page that, while not overtly cryptic, subtly beckoned with multiple unhighlighted links discreetly pointing to potential news sources.
Our intrigue into the digital unknown ensued with the initial blog entry, showcasing the anticipated revelation of Gosha Rubchinskiy ascending to the coveted position of YEEZY Head of Design. The accompanying "source" link took us to YEEZY.com, an online front where a live-streamed Vultures rave pulsated with energy. Hosted on YouTube, the video featured the iconic ¥$ (YEEZY or YZY) collaborator Ty Dolla $ign, capturing the essence of Ye's creative vision. This revelation followed Ye's strategic move - a thoughtfully curated range of YEEZY merchandise, strategically aligned with the imminent Vultures release. This calculated step transpired shortly after the rapper teased followers with a snippet, showcasing himself against a breathtaking backdrop, the sound resonating with a sample of "Everybody" by the Backstreet Boys.
Simultaneously, the YEEZY website included a presale link. However, our attempt to navigate further led us to an impasse — a password prompt guarding the entrance. At this impeding point, discretion prevailed, with a conscious decision not to engage in "brute" forcing for obvious reasons or delve into research exploits with Kali Linux. The temptation, however, remains palpable, as the desire of deciphering the password hints at an untold digital adventure. In our quest, we tested the waters with Ye's familial connections, including his children's names and even his mother's name, Donda, yet the door remained sealed, adding an extra layer of mystery to the unwinding, typical Ye-like drama regarding "Vultures" and YEWS!
KKK What? Ye Mentions Elon Musk and Israel
But YEWS NEWS didn't stop there. Elon Musk's plan to start a university in Austin, Texas, surfaced from tax filings of his charity, The Foundation. With a monumental $100 million seed, Musk's vision includes a STEM-focused primary and secondary school, setting the stage for groundbreaking education. YEWS NEWS also included Puma's termination of its sponsorship of the Israeli national soccer team shook the sports world, signaling a shift in partnership strategy.
Yet, amid these revelations, a darker note emerged. Ye, donning a Ku Klux Klan-style hood at a Vultures listening party (shown on the YEEZY website) in Miami, unleashed a storm of controversy. The pointed black hood with eyeholes, worn on stage alongside music stars like Chris Brown, Kodak Black, and Offset, prompted Anti-Semitism claims and ignited a fierce debate.
On that note, long live Ye!
