Kanye West knows how to keep a secret. After all, with the rapper having so many big plans to execute, it makes sense that he likes keeping his cards close to his chest. However, recently the artist has been confusing his loyal fans. Just hours after he was spotted filming for a video with Playboi Carti and a few other people, another surprise ended up unfolding.

Now, just a day after they both fueled fan speculation that they could either be working on ‘Vultures’ or one of Carti’s projects, the younger rapper debuted a brand new gift from the 46-year-old.

Last night, after the Grammy Awards had ended, Playboi Carti was set to make his way onto Adin Ross’ Kick stream to talk to fans. While the whole stream had been hyped up, the rapper ended up making an appearance for less than 10 minutes. Although not much was said during their time together, one thing that they did talk about was the black leather face mask that was a “gift” from Kanye West.

While they did not talk about it much, Carti ensured to keep the mask on the whole time he was on the stream. Some fans ended up being weirded out by the interaction between Ross and the rapper. However, others could only focus on his new token from Ye. The surprising face mask comes shortly after word got out that the 28-year-old and West were back working on another music video together.
