Kanye West may not be the heir to the King of Pop throne [does the name Reh Dogg mean nothing to you people?] but if Emperor of Teaching You Hoes How To Utilize Props For Profile Pictures On Social Sites [see middle photograph] is available he would be reigning queen. And that is why he earned GQ’s Man Of The Year honors back in 2007. CHEW. THIS. ASS.
Louis Vuitton has long been the rapper’s label of choice – indeed it was once rumoured that when hip-hop WAG (and now Phat Fashions creative director) Kimora Simmons was still married to Def Jam record label founder Russell she was the French house’s biggest customer. So it makes sense that it has now teamed up with Kanye West to bring out a line of shoes. The relationship should have come as no surprise as, in his own words (from “Last Call” with Jay-Z) he’s “Kan, the Louis Vuitton don”. The Kanye West collection will consist of three designs: classic trainers called Don’s; high tops called Tour; and Mr Hudson, which are based on boat shoes. [GQ via Nah Right]
