Kanye West is continuing to go rogue.

After sparking outrage in recent weeks – with anti-Semitic comments, “White Lives Matter” T-shirt designs and more antics – Balenciaga, Adidas and Gap have all severed ties with the rapper.

Now, West has revealed his plans to get rid of the leftover products he once sold for hundreds of dollars.

In a video published by celebrity news site X17 on Youtube, the “Gold Digger” rapper gave a tour of his Los Angeles studio, where hundreds of garments could be seen alongside workers using sewing machines.

“I cut up 100 hoodies from Yeezy, from Balenciaga, from [Gap and Adidas] and everything we do is going to cost $20,” Ye, 45, said of the discarded inventory.

He added, “We need to make sure everyone receives the same level of cuts, the same level of food, same level of water, same level of education.”

“We’re engineering opportunities, we’re getting past the past, we’re focused on the future,” West continued, also showing off some new designs.

In October, West kicked off a whirl of controversy with “White Lives Matter” T-shirts at his Yeezy Season 9 fashion show.

Speaking of the future, the “Eazy” rapper also showed off his “Ye24” designs. He claimed the attire, promoting his run for president in 2024, was made from repurposed Balenciaga sweatpants and more. He further alleged on Twitter that he met with former President Donald Trump and offered him the vice presidential spot on his ticket.

Though the fashion brands denounced the rapper, West wore designs from his recent Balenciaga and Adidas collaboration in the video, including a white messenger bag ($1,290) and a sweatshirt ($1,150).

On Tuesday night, Rolling Stone published an exposé in which former Yeezy employees alleged that West would often show executives porn videos, his own sex tapes and explicit images of then-wife Kim Kardashian.

Representatives from Gap, Adidas and Balenciaga did not immediately return Page Six Style’s request for comment.
