Safaree Samuels isn’t impressed with Kanye West’s style evolution.

The 40-year-old took to Twitter on Thursday to express his disappointment in Ye’s fashion choices. He began by claiming he’s “always been a Kanye fan,” but has felt uninspired by the way the Donda artist has “been dressing these last 2 years.”

“He use [sic] to be inspiration with clothes and jewelry,” Safaree tweeted. “Now this guy just wears hoodies and black gloves and it bothers me.”

I’ve always been a Kanye fan but I really hate how he’s been dressing these last 2 years.. he use to be inspiration with clothes and jewelry. Now this guy just wears hoodies and black gloves and it bothers me 😂😂😂

Safaree has not elaborated on his take or specify which of Kanye’s style eras he prefers.

Regardless of what you think of the multi-hyphenate, there’s no denying West has left an indelible mark on the fashion world. He’s been named one of entertainment’s best-dressed figures and developed relationships with revered heavy-hitters like Vogue editor Anna Wintour, designers Riccardo Tisci and Haider Ackermann, and, of course, the late Virgil Abloh. Kanye’s also received hands-on experience in the business, having interned at fashion houses like Fendi, collaborated with brands like Nike and Adidas, and launched his wildly lucrative brand Yeezy. 

Taste, of course, is an entirely subjective concept. Many social media users were still quick to call out Safaree for his criticism of Kanye’s most recent style. As pointed out by the Shade Room, singer Tank was among those who blasted Safaree’s tweet, suggesting he was in no position to question anyone’s fashion choices.

“Says the guy with no clothing like, no clothing endorsements, and absolutely no fashion sense,” Tank wrote.

Safaree’s tweet drew a wide range of reactions. Some co-signed his position, while others took the opportunity to roast Samuels’ questionable style choices over the years. Read some of the reactions below. 

Who cares Kanye is fashion icon and he can wear whatever the hell he wants like it or not not every rapper enjoys wearing jewelry let him be different.

The question is why are you worried about what another man is wearing on his body. You are a grown man. And you wore Jean vest. Don’t you ever mention my billionaire brother ever again
