New T-Shirts From Kendall & Kylie Jenner Feature Their Images Stamped Over Tupac & Biggie
Vintage band t-shirts came back in style, thanks to the likes of Hip Hop artists such as Kanye West, and Travis Scott. They’ve became so popular that everybody wants a piece of the action, even Kendall and Kylie Jenner. If the Kardashian conglomerate sees money to be made, you better believe that money will be made. So here we are…
The two have released a new “vintage t-shirt collection” featuring artists of Rap and Rock’s past. Most notable artists included are Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G. The shirts feature images of the dead rappers faded out with their initials or face stamped over top of them. It’s like the modern way to desecrate a grave, but with lackluster “artwork” and screen printing.
Twitter users are reacting to the merch the only way they know how, with memes, thoughts, and trolling.
Kylie and Kendall really put their faces/logos overtop Biggie and Pac pictures and are trying to sell it for $125. I don't even have words. pic.twitter.com/IhbJMkUg2E

If I see you wearing a Kendall+Kylie shirt with their faces on top of Biggie and Tupac… just know that I'm legally obligated to punch you.

This isn’t the first time the Jenners (and Kardashians) faced backlash over clothing. Kendall Jenner wore a Slayer t-shirt last year and got a response from the band’s guitarist. He publicly wore his response, a shirt of his own that read “Kill Kardashians.” It was a massive meme.
Kylie Jenner also came under fire recently for stealing fashion ideas from black owned business Plugged NYC. The fashion company provided proof that Kylie Jenner stole their looks for her camouflage collection. Kylie Jenner even wore Plugged NYC’s camo before. Think of it as cutting out the middle man and benefiting off other’s hard work.

Kylie Jenner is in a relationship with Travis Scott and Kendall Jenner is rumoured to be romantically linked to ASAP Rocky. Some will say these rappers influenced these looks, but does it even matter?

UPDATE: Voletta Wallace reacted to the shirts and called them “disrespectful.” The shirts have also disappeared from Kendall and Kylie’s website.
