LOS ANGELES, CA - AUGUST 30: Vanguard Award winner Kanye West speaks onstage during the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards at Microsoft Theater on August 30, 2015 in Los Angeles, California.

Kanye is in hot water over his Donda merch as he’s been accused of stealing from an up-and-coming brand.

One of the designers for the brand InfinityG8ds, who met with Kanye prior to his last listening party for Donda, spoke out on Kanye’s copy and paste effort of the team’s design for his new album merch.

In a TikTok video shared to Instagram, Katana, one of the designers on the project wrote, “To see all the thought, hard work, and dedication put into @infinityg*ds and then to see someone disrespectfully copy with no credit given is sickening and then not just anybody but @kanyewest .. someone with so much money and so much power .. yet this proves that he is indeed beneath us!! I’m sure these types of situations happen often but it definitely hit home this time..”

She added: “God always has the last say so though .. and he doesn’t play about his Soldiers. All things work together for our good. Thank you everyone for all the love and support. Please share this post.”

Below is the logo the designer is accusing Ye of copying. For the Donda merch, the rapper replaces the middle symbol with a cross allegedly.

From the video, the designers drove nine hours to Atlanta for the listening party and signed an NDA. Although photos of the merch have been posted online for sale, none of the rapper’s brands have posted it as official merch for purchase. Ye nor his team has come out with a statement pertaining to the brand.
