Passion For Fashion: Kanye West Rocking A Just Don Snakeskin Snapback, Denim Outfit & Nike Air Flight ’89 Sneakers

Rapper Kanye West who is currently in London for the ‘Watch The Throne’ tour with Jay-Z was spotted going out to dinner with Kim Kardashian. Yeezy was styling on them lames in a Just Don Snakeskin New York Knicks snapback, blue denim outfit and a pair of Nike Air Flight ’89 sneakers. I like how Yeezy rocked the cap and sneakers to bring out the outfit more. His fitted jeans also make the look stand out because they fit right with the sneakers he wore.  Nice out yeezy! Are you feeling his look?

Life Is Good: Nas Covers Complex’s June/July 2012 Issue

Queen Hip-Hop legend Nas is covering the June/July issue of Complex magazine. This is history once again because Nasty Nas appeared on Complex’s first-ever issue back in 2002. 10 years later, Nasty Nas reconnects with the music/fashion publication for their 10th Anniversary celebration. On the cover, they took it back to the essence as Nas is sitting next to crates with his albums in front of them on a street corner looking very Hip-Hop in a Hawaii shirt, bucket hat, white beater and Timbaland boots. The cover story was shot by photographer Kareem Black ans written by writer Rob Marriott, who sat down with Nas for a long conversation. Below are some excerpts:

Nasir Jones, 38, is not a hologram. Leaning in the back of a black Escalade, he’s a living, breathing legend. Unlike ’Pac, Nas still walks amongst us—growing older and wiser, taking missteps, surviving. The recently divorced father of a teenage daughter and a 3-year-old son, he had to pay a grip to his ex—the R&B/rock chick Kelis—just before she gave birth. And just as he had to pay another pound of flesh to the IRS.”

Life is Good will be your tenth solo album. Is this a watershed moment for you, or just another album?
This is different. The way you work, your approach, is different each time. I’m at a cool, mature, easy place.

“Daughters” was an emotional record. What made you be so honest?
This is the first time I’m dealing with a teenage daughter, and it blows me away. I don’t know that you’re ever prepared to be a parent. Once you become one, that’s your responsibility. It’s more like me talking to myself, about how I could have been there a lot more. I beat myself up for not being the best I could be. I would ask her: “Am I a cool dad?” or “Am I a good dad? Did I fuck up?” And she would say, “Nah, you’re good.” That’s important to me because I started as a teen. I was around 19 when her mother was pregnant. My daughter means a lot to me. It’s just a record that came from the heart.
