On Wednesday, September 29, Kanye West finally released another piece from his collab with Gap - marking the second clothing drop from their exclusive line. Any guess what it was? No, not another shiny puffer. This time around, 'Ye opted to keep things... simple. Very simple.

Nicknamed "The Perfect Hoodie," the oversized cotton sweatshirt looks like something we'd catch at Sunday Service. Perhaps that's why it doesn't come cheap. Priced at $90, the unisex hoodie might cost less than some of 'Ye's other lines, but it still makes for quite the pricey cop. Don't quote us on that one, though.

One quick scroll through Twitter, and it's clear not everybody is impressed with 'Ye's latest line. "New Yeezy Gap hoodie is on Amazon?!" one user shaded. "$90 for a basic Yeezy Gap hoodie… Kanye really done lost his mind with this one," wrote another. Which, well, take what you want from that one.

What we can say, though, is that 'Ye probably won't be losing any sleep over it. In fact, something tells us he's doing just fine. According to a recent report by Bloomberg, the Gap x Yeezy line alone could already be worth as much as $970 million. Not too shabby if you ask us. Then again, in case you forgot, West's time dominating Gap was actually a long time coming.

"One of my dreams was to be the head creative director of The Gap. I'd like to be the Steve Jobs of The Gap," West revealed to back in 2015. Hey, if anyone can do it, it's gotta be this Christian Genius Billionaire...

Stay tuned. We've got a feeling there's more where that came from.
