Kanye West is adamant about making his voice heard this election season — but many wish he would just stop.
According to New York Post reporter, Nikki Schwab,’Ye premiered designs from his latest T-shirt collection — titled “Blexit” — over the weekend, and they’re urging Black people to exit the Democratic Party.
The Chicago mogul debuted his T-shirts at Turning Point USA’s Young Black Leadership Summit in Washington D.C. The summit is held to bring young, Black conservatives together learn from “well-known conservative leaders ad activists.”

Happy to stand behind Kanye’s “Blexit” collection, Candace Owens, Turning Point USA’s Director of Communications, says “Blexit is a renaissance and I am blessed to say that this logo, these colors, were created by my dear friend and fellow superhero Kanye West.”
She went on to say, ‘Ye “has taken one of the boldest steps in America to open a conversation we have needed to have.”
The “Blexit” T-shirts are part of a larger roll out for Blexit.com, a digital platform “for those who have released themselves from the political orthodoxy.”
According to its website, Blexit.com is “a rebellion led by Americans wishing to disrupt the simulation of fear…It is our formal declaration of independence.”
