Cardi B speaks out on the unfair treatment of female rappers

Kanye West's Sunday Service Choir performed a cover of Adele's "Easy On Me" in honor of the late designer Virgil Abloh, who passed away this weekend.

A live stream of the Sunday service was shared on the Donda Live website after news of Abloh's death was announced, with the choir singing a cover of "Easy On Me" with revised lyrics.

Instead of the original text in the chorus, the choir sang: "Go on me, father / I'm still your child / And I need the chance / Feel your love around."

In addition, the words "In loving memory of Virgil Abloh, Creative Director of 'Donda" "appeared on the screen during the performance.

Abloh died at the age of 41 after a two-year battle with the rare cardiac angiosarcoma.

In addition to serving as the Artistic Director of Menswear at Louis Vuitton and founder of Off-White, Abloh was also a long-time employee of West.

Over the years he designed several West album covers, including My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy from 2010 and Yeezus from 2013.
