The rapper, 44, who has legally changed his name to Ye, was spotted at JFK Airport wearing a prosthetic mask bearing the resemblance of a Caucasian person with eye makeup.
Despite concealing his highly recognizable face, all eyes were still on Ye as he made his way into a cab.
Freaky! Kanye West debuted yet another creepy face mask while jetting into New York City on Monday
The haunting plastic mask covered the entirety of his head, but Kanye accessorized it with a black baseball cap and slick grey headphones.
He teamed the creepy accessory with a black cap, leather Balenciaga jacket, faded jeans and knee-high boots - the same outfit he was seen wearing in Venice a day earlier.
The rapper was busy on his phone, swiping away on the touch screen with an ungloved hand.
Once he shed the face mask, Kanye looked just like any other traveler returning home.

Making a fashion statement: The rapper was spotted wearing the same outfit he sported while in Venice on Sunday
The All Of The Lights hit-maker traded in the creepy costume for another face mask, this one worn to slow the spread of COVID-19 rather than disguise his identity.
Interestingly, the rapper was also spotted wearing the mask while meeting up with Trump fixer Michael Cohen in New York on Tuesday, in photos obtained by Page Six.
The duo were spotted at Sant Ambroeus Coffee Break at the Lowes Regency Hotel with Israeli judo champ Or Sassoon and 'PR whiz' Ronn Torossian.

Mayoral candidate Eric Adams was also supposed to join the group, but was unable to show after getting held up in another meeting. Kanye was apparently not going to be in the Big Apple very long, as he had to return to the airport.
Cohen did not reveal the details of their discussion when speaking with Page Six after their get-together, but revealed West had decided to wear the mask for 'anonymity.'
'The purpose [of the mask] was so that people would not recognize him … the first 10 minutes we sat down, he was mobbed by people … who wanted photos, and to say hello. So he put on this mask to give him some anonymity, which interestingly enough, did not really work.'
