Who Rocked It The Best? Rappers Wearing Yves Saint Laurent (YSL)

Yves Saint Laurent was created by French fashion designer Yves Henri Donat Mathieu-Saint-Laurent in 1961. At the age of 17, Laurent moved to Paris to pursue a fashion career. He was eventually hired as couturier Christian Dior’s assistant. When Dior died, he was named head of the House of Dior. On June 1, 2008, Laurent succumbed of brain cancer. YSL left behind a great impact and his brand could be seen on some of the biggest rappers in the industry. I came up with a list of five rappers wearing YSL. Peep my list and vote who rocked it best below:

Last year Jay-Z performed in Australia for his “Blue Print 3” tour. During Jay’s set, he rocked a black patent leather YSL logo belt; with a black tee, black cargo shorts, black socks, and a pair of black Radii Moon Walker sneakers.


Chris Brown was spotted in Beverly Hills, California styling on them lames in a $395 YSL logo belt. Also, Breezy was wearing a pair of $187 Super Francis Ciccio sunglasses.

Cut The Check: Dr Dre Sells 51% Of His Dre Beats Electronics To HTC For $309 Million

Last year music producer Dr. Dre made $14 million dollar, this year he’s $309 million richer after selling 51% of his Dre Beats to HTC for $309. The deal was recently announced. The Taiwan-based smartphone maker will acquire 51 percent of the company, which Dre co-founded with Interscope Geffen A&M Records CEO Jimmy Iovine in 2006. Beats, known for its popular Beats by Dr. Dre headphones, sells celebrity-endorsed lines by Lady Gaga, Diddy, and Justin Bieber.

The HTC and Beats by Dr. Dre partnership is an opportunity for two world-class companies to redefine the smartphone industry and define the future,” stated Iovine. “For Beats by Dr. Dre, this represents a critical step in our continued mission to clean up the destruction of audio caused by the digital revolution and reengineer how sound is delivered, so the consumer feels the music the way that the artist intended.”

As part of the strategic partnership and investment, HTC plans to incorporate Beats technology into their phones by the end of the year. Dr. Dre and Iovine will continue to operate Beats autonomously.
