Last week, Kanye West was seen to be wearing a long-sleeved T-shirt displaying the name “Cradle of Filth.” Cradle of Filth is a black metal band from Suffolk, England, and it’s not the first metal band whose merch has been worn by Kanye. Kanye has previously been seen in Testament and Megadeth shirts; the Yeezus aesthetic is also heavily inspired by rock and metal. Cradle of Filth responded to West for wearing their tee, saying that it is “fortunate” that they have never collaborated with West. “Kanye West. Cradle of Filth fan,” the band shares via Facebook. “Fortunately not a collaborator.” Check out their post below and let us know what you think about the exchange.
