He teamed the white slide on sneakers with a bright blue hoodie and brown leather pants.
The outing comes just hours after the Yeezus rapper dropped his latest single, featuring Travis Scott, off his upcoming tenth studio album. He simultaneously released a video for the song, directed by Arthur Jafa.
‘Wash Us in the Blood, though, has Kanye channelling his emancipated mind towards the sharpest point,’ The Guardian said in a review.
Adding: ‘He is at his most powerful when he doesn’t try to be calm, but corrals his anger. There’s a wider lesson there, perhaps, as the US faces its own moment of revelation.’

Kanye also recently announced he would be bringing his coveted Yeezy fashion label to a major retailer after inking a collaboration deal with Gap, the rapper and the company announced on Friday.
The 44-year-old rap mogul confirmed the news with a Tweet along with an image of the letters YZY in place of the word Gap in the apparel store’s familiar blue square logo.
The collaboration ‘comes full circle’ for the two brands as West actually worked at a local Gap store when he was a teenager.

‘YEEZY AND GAP FORM PARTNERSHIP #WESTDAYEVER,’ he penned in all caps.
In a press release, Gap said that Kaye is ‘poised to disrupt retail’ with the new clothing line, called simply Yeezy Gap, which is expected to launch in early 2021.
Kanye’s already established multi-billion-dollar luxury Yeezy line is stylistically in step with the San Francisco founded store, featuring neutral tones, solid colored T-shirts and a casual vibe.
West will create ‘elevated basics for men, women and kids’ and, according to Gap, the ‘creative process just getting underway.’

His items will be sold at ‘accessible price points’ – a departure from his signature Yeezy line where a basic beige pair of his Adidas slides retails for several hundred.
The retailer and the rapper inked an impressive 10-year deal with an option to renew after just five, according to the New York Times who spoke with a source familiar with the negotiations.
After five years, the insider added, Gap is ‘hoping’ the line will be raking in a billion dollars in sales – a huge boost to the company which took in $4.6 billion in revenue in 2019.
West is the sole owner of his Yeezy brand which has a valuation of $2.9 billion and under the terms of his new deal with Gap, the designer will rake in ‘royalties and potential equity related to sales achievement’, a press release said.
