Following the official Jesus Is King merch releases for New York City and Detroit, Kanye West has delivered on an array of new city-specific march for his recent Sunday Service installment and album listening session in Kingston, Jamaica. The two-hour-long gospel service saw West bring out his 120-person choir to Emancipation Park, once again making the event free and open to the public. Throughout the performance, the various choir members, as well as Ye, were seen wearing “City of Kingston” themed Jesus Is King merch, which the prophetic artist-meets-entrepreneur later released via his online shop.

Within the latest drop, which utilizes Yeezy garments as the base, various mock neck T-shirts and long sleeves, crewnecks, and a hat are showcased. Various pieces incorporate Kingston’s logo, with others bearing government logos such as the nation’s national hummingbird and Jamaica’s coat of arms. Some critics, such as Jamaican native Deika Morrison, were quick to point out that Ye had utilized these in an effort to profit off the narrative, equally violating the government’s protocols in regards to the use of the various logos for such purposes. Kingston’s mayor also took to Twitter to clarify some of the concerns that were raised.

You can check out the full range of items via the gallery above. Many of the pieces are still available for pre-order via Kanye West’s website.
