If you hadn't heard, Kanye West is really into fashion.

Recently, the "FourFiveSeconds" singer has teamed up with the Foundation Louis Vuitton to announce a series of concerts from March 7 to 10. Kanye's wife, Kim Kardashian, even took to Instagram to tease the event.

The series will take place at the Paris-based foundation and feature a performance by West, a Steve McQueen-directed film and photography by Jackie Nikerson, according to Foundation Louis Vuitton's site. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit a charity.

As much controversy that surrounds the outspoken rapper, he does seem to have an undeniable passion for fashion. It could even be argued that this latest fashion month has been the season of all things Yeezy.

His presentation for Adidas at New York Fashion Week was frequented by many the A-lister; he was a constant front-row fixture at shows; not to mention, he's collaborated with many high-end labels.

He uses his music to celebrate fashion and is even willing to move past old grudges.

In 2013 Kanye asked fans to boycott LVMH, the parent company of luxury labels like Louis Vuitton, after CEO Bernard Arnault declined to meet with Yeezy. Now he's hosting their events. 

Of course, Kanye has his critics.

"I've got ideas on color palettes. I've got ideas on silhouettes," said Kanye in a BBC interview with Zane Lowe. "And I've got a million people telling me why I can't do it. You know, that I'm not a real designer."

He may not have the experience, but to celebrate the month in fashion, let's let his music speak for itself.

"You don't see just how fly my style is? / I don't see why I need a stylist / when I shop so much I can speak Italian," he raps in "Champion."

"Am I shallow / ‘cause all my clothes designer? / Dressed smart like a London bloke," he croons in "Gold Digger."

Then there's our personal favorite, courtesy of "Can't Tell Me Nothin'": "So if the devil wear Prada / Adam, Eve wear nada / I'm in between but way more fresher."

Yes, we'll give you that, Ye.
