As the fashion, music and entertainment worlds continue to mourn the late Virgil AblohMoneybagg Yo is paying tribute to the Louis Vuitton artistic director.

The “Time Today” rapper posted several Instagram photos of him wearing a white fur Louis Vuitton jacket and commented, “#RIPVirgil Abloh.” The price tag read $25,900.

Lil Baby commented, “25 thousand on a jacket wear it once,” while Fabolous wrote, “A piece” with a fire emoji, and Young Bleu responded, “Fresh as a mf no cap.”

Last week, Drake remembered Abloh with a tattoo showing Virgil from behind, throwing a paper airplane. “A remembrance of the great Virgil Abloh done on Drake,” the caption reads.

On November 28, the day Abloh died, Drake also paid tribute with a photo of the two of them, writing, “My plan is to touch the sky 1000 more times for you…love you eternally brother thank you for everything.”

The four-time Grammy winner attended the memorial service for Abloh on December 6 in Chicago with several other celebrities, including Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, A$AP Rocky, Lauryn Hill and Frank Ocean.

Abloh passed away after a private two-year battle with cardiac angiosarcoma, a rare, aggressive form of cancer. He was 41. Virgil was the founder of fashion brand Off-White and the first African American to serve as artistic director for Louis Vuitton.
