July 16 (UPI) -- Kanye West's nine-piece capsule line with French brand A.P.C. has sold out since its reveal yesterday.

One item from the line has gotten all the buzz, though. West's "Hip Hop T-Shirt," a $120 shirt in solid white or dark navy Egyptian cotton, is little more than a glorified undershirt.

The shirt has come under fire for contradicting West's anti-consumerist tirade in song "New Slaves," and for being a design-free T-shirt. Nevertheless, it's out of stock.




In "New Slaves," West compared obsessive consumption of name brands -- "spending everything on Alexander Wang" -- to an elaborate form of slavery.

"The nine-piece capsule collection crashed the site and sold out promptly, though A.P.C. is still taking pre-orders for the next shipment until Wednesday at 1 p.m." a representative for A.P.C. said.
