Fashion Me Dope: A$AP Rocky Wearing Bape Shark Hoodie & Hood By Air Paramount Shirt

Yesterday Tuesday (June 5), RCA recording artist A$AP Rocky performed at the Electric Ballroom in London. During his concert across the pond, the stylish Harlem native wore an A Bathing Ape Shark hoodie which is from the 2012 collection, paired with a red and black long sleeve Hood by Air Paramount shirt, Trapstar cap and black jeans. I’m not too impressed with the hoodie but I like the shirt, jeans and cap. Any thoughts on his outfit?

Dining Across The Pond: The Carters Smiling & Waving During Romantic Dinner In Paris

While still across the pond for his ‘Watch The Throne’ tour, Jay-Z and his wife Beyoncé decided to leave Baby Blue behind as they went to have a romantic dinner at Caviar Kaspia’s in Paris, France. Paparazzi caught “The Carters” smiling and waving as they entered the eatery. There’s so much to do in Paris, so I know Jigga and Bey are going to have a lot more fun. Jigga wore a black tee-shirt, pants and blue denim jacket. As usual, Beyoncé was all glammed-up in red & black blazer, black pants, white blouse and black and white bag.

Passion For Fashion: Pusha T In A $335 Givenchy Graphic Angel Crest Tee-Shirt

Last weekend, G.O.O.D. Music rapper Pusha T performed at New York’s Hot 97 ‘Summerjam’ concert at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. While rocking the stage, the V.A. native wore a $335 Graphic Angel Crest Tee-Shirt from Givenchy Fall/Winter 2012 collection paired with black jeans, cap and a hoodie wrapped around his neck. He also wore a pair of Christian Louboutin sneakers. I like his kicks but everything else is just too simple. I’m not a fan of wearing black and white. I like colors! Are you feeling Pusha’s outfit?

Respect Her Hustle Because She Has Checks Coming In: Yandy Smith Talks Pregnancy, Missy Elliott & Her Businesses

Love her or hate her, you have to respect her hustle because she has checks coming in. Talent manager, executive producer and reality star, Yandy Smith of VH1‘s ‘Love & Hip-Hop’ did an interview with Vibe Vixen. In her interview, the Howard University alumni talks about season two of Love & Hip-Hop, working with Missy Elliott, her accessory line EGL and of course her pregnancy. The Harlem native has two months left before she gives birth to her baby boy. Below are some excerpts:

The last time we spoke, you were wrapping up production on Love & Hip-Hop. How do you feel after taping as well as watching yourself on the show?
I can’t say it wasn’t me. It was completely me. Every little bit of it was me. I wish they were able to go into a little more of who I am as a person and see some more of my characteristics, but I was very careful because I didn’t want my personal life exploited and on the show. I wanted it to be focused on business, but the way it turned out; it was focused on business either. I guess if I gave in a little on the personal side, all of the drama wouldn’t have been necessary.

If you were asked to, would you come back for a second season?
I probably would, if the money was right. If it’s something that my significant other wanted to do, I would do it. You know, because I have a family now and I wouldn’t want to put the message out there of raising this baby by myself since I’m not. So, it would have to be a family decision now since there’s more to my life and my family since taping the show previously.

As of date, you’ve been doing a lot of work with Missy Elliot. What can fans expect from her next studio album?
The album is incredible. Her and Timbaland came together and joined forces on this album. It’s like Missy and Tim reunited times three because it’s extra dope. It has some new flavor to it then a little of the old school funk to it. It’s crazy. They put their asses in it. They did the damn thing.

Sneaker Me Dope: Nas Rocking Air Jordan IV ‘Cavs’

Queens Hip-Hop legend Nas performed at New York’s Hot 97 ‘Summerjam’ concert this past weekend. During his set, Nasty Nas rocked a pair of Air Jordan IV ‘Cavs’. These J’s were released on May 12 and I’m pretty sure they are already sold out. The collaboration of blue and orange makes the shoe dope. I’m definitely feeling the Knicks colorway. These kicks feature a Black/Orange Blaze-Old Royal and were inspired by the buzzer beater MJ nailed against Craig Ehlo and the Cleveland Cavs in the 1989 playoffs. Nasty Nas also rocked black jeans and a “Life Is Good” tank-top to support his upcoming album of the same name, due July 17 via Def Jam.

Currently Obsessed With: Gucci Tee-Shirt With Gucci Chest Print

I’m currently obsessed with these Gucci tee-shirts with Gucci Chest Print. I love how this shirt is simple but dope at the same time. I’m really not a fan of clothing that has the designer name written all over the product. With some cargo shorts or fitted jeans and a pair of tennis sneakers, you can’t go wrong with this shirt. Available at Gucci retailers for $310 but Gucci’s online store has it priced for $159. This Gucci Chest Print tee-shirt comes in a red and blue colorway.
