Since September of this year, Chicago kingpin Kanye West has been relatively quiet on Twitter. In these last few months, Yeezy speaks only when necessary. Tragically, that day has come, as influential Italian fashion journalist Franca Sozzani has died at the age of 66. She was the editor-in-chief of Italian Vogue. Kanye West, a fan of hers, tweeted the following:

"Franca Sozzani was always so nice and sincere. You will be deeply missed."

Another muse of Kanye West, Anna Wintour, penned a eulogy for Franca Sozzani that was published today by Vogue.  You may remember Anna Wintour as one of the naked wax figures in Kanye West's music video for "Famous."

Check out Kanye's tweet below, and let us know what you think in the comments section. RIP Franca Sozzani.
