It’s no secret that pornography has been a huge influence on Kanye West’s artistry. The super-producer turned emcee has publicly spoken about his infatuation with erotic imagery in many different settings and recently released a bizarre one-off track entitled ‘XTCY‘ in which he addresses his lust over his wife’s female siblings. Now, this past Thursday, September 6th, the controversial self-proclaimed genius served as the Creative Director of the first inaugural PornHub Awards hosted by Asa Akira at the Belasco Theatre in Los Angeles, California in conjunction with the unveiling of a matching apparel release called the PornHub x YEEZY Capsule Collection.

Some of you still might be taken aback by the reality of the existence of the PornHub Awards, as we are too, but yes indeed, they do exist. Some of the categories from the lecherous first annual honorary award show include; The More The Merrier- Top Gangbang Performer, The Blowjob Queen- Best Blowjob Performer, M4M- Top Gay Performer, Solo Siren- Top Female Solo Performer, and so many more.

Kanye West added his eclectic style to the presentation with what appears to be a stage designed by the Chicago-born riddled with large canvases that doubled as projector screens, aggressive tints of pink and orange blanketed the stage as the show that began nearly an hour and a half late began with a parade of pornographic actors and actresses dressed in pastel-tinted, sheer and transparent YEEZY-designed dresses and garments stood center stage for several minutes before Kanye West made his way to center stage addressing legendary porn photographer, Richard Kern, before silently and awkwardly posing for photos utilizing the scantily clad women as creative props at his heels.

The aesthetic of the award show took on more of a portrayal of an art installation rather than an honorary exhibition as some of the women who initially took the stage had their bare breasts exposed or were nearly nude in their YEEZY designs. Ye not only outfitted every award presenter in original YEEZY apparel but he curated futuristic erotica-inspired trophies for each individual category for the inaugural award show. Despite the fact that there were several major technical malfunctions and organizational flubs during the presentation, Kanye x PornHub were able to successfully pull off the event as the rapper even performed alongside labelmate Teyana Taylor and debuted the music video for his collaborative effort with Lil’ Pump entitled, ‘I Love It’.

In regards to the PornHub x YEEZY Capsule Collection, a series of commemorative soft grey, long-sleeve crewneck sweaters were curated by Kanye himself featuring award-winning porn actresses by the likes of Kendra Sunderland, Lena Paul, Abella Danger, Riley Reid, and Mia Malkova tastefully painted in wide stroke minimalist stylings. Surprisingly, this is one of Kanye’s more interesting and aesthetically pleasing collaborations he’s produced this year alongside his recent merch unveilings.

The PornHub x YEEZY Capsule Collection is currently available for pre-order via the YEEZY Supply online store, here. If you find any of the PornHub x Kanye’s latest offerings cop worthy, let us know in the comment section below.
