Kanye West was out here rocking full face masks before the coronavirus was even a thing. As the world continues to be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, health officials in many places have advised residents to wear a mask at all times to help prevent potentially spreading the virus to others and thus to flatten the curve. However, it looks like one man in particular was always on his mask game, although not exactly the same type of personal protective equipment that you might see folks sporting these days.

On Friday night, Kanye West’s part-in-crime, Kim Kardashian, posted a throwback photo from their family trip to Japan last year. In the shot, which features Kim holding their son, Saint, in her arms, their daughter, North, and their niece, Penelope Disick, Kanye can be seen donning a full face mask with a skull on it. In the caption, Kim wrote, “Flashback to last years Japan trip when Kanye would wear full face masks.”
Although it’s unclear whether Kanye made this choice for creative purposes or as some kind of safety measure, regardless, it’s a hilarious shot of the multi-hyphenate mogul.
