Get The Look: Don C In A $700 Givenchy Madonna-Print Cotton-Jersey Tee-Shirt & Air Jordan Retro 4

streetsnaps-don-c-portland-1

Let me say this before I even get into the story, I’am obsessed with Don C’s style. He’s the definition of fashion! I think I was in my sophomore year at Rutgers University when I became obsessed with his style. Back then, I never knew his name, I just knew he was the curly hair dude who was always with Kanye West. After doing some research, I found out that he was actually Kanye West’s manager.

Anyway, the music manager, fashion designer, boutique owner and the inspiration behind a lot of Kanye’s looks recently did a street shot for Hypebeast. He looked dope in a $700 Givenchy Madonna-Print Cotton-Jersey Tee-Shirt paired with black leather pants. Don C topped off his outfit with a Just Don hat and Air Jordan Retro 4. This tee features striking images of the Madonna made its SS13 collection and you can get it at Mr. Porter.

Wale Sells Out NYC’s Best Buy Theater; Performs With The Lox, Yo Gotti, DJ Khaled & Chinx Drugz

Wale live in concert at the Best Buy Theatre

On Monday (June 24), Maybach Music Group’s Wale performed at NYC’s Best Buy Theater for a sold out crowd. With three albums to date, the D.C. native-has proven that he’s “The Gifted“.

Earlier that day, I received passes from Atlantic Records (Wale’s label) to cover this event. I arrived to the venue around 9:30 pm. Ty Ty SmithEmory Jones from Roc Nation (Wale’s management company), and executives from Atlantic Records were also in attendance. It was important for these guys to be present because NYC is a major market for Wale and it was the eve of his highly anticipated album, The Gifted.

DJ 5’9 was on the 1’s and 2’s warming up the crowd. Shortly after 10 pm, Wale stormed on stage in a Givenchy Star-Detail Cotton Shirt paired with black waxed denim jeans and Air Jordan sneakers. Wale opened up his set by performing “Love Hate Thing,” his latest single from The Gifted, followed by an acapella version of “Legendary” from his last alum, Ambition.

By then, the crowd was fully hyped, sweaty and rapping every word along with Wale. He allowed a fan in the crowd to rap his entire verse to “Chain Music“. Wale brought out a few surprises during his show and the first was French Montana’s Coke Boy affiliated Chinx Drugz. They performed “Let A ***** Know.”

Wale also performed “Rack City“, “Bait,” “Slight Work” and “Back Ballin,” in which he brought out Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports Agency new client Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder. NYC showed the baller a lot of love. Wale’s screaming and over-excited fans had no idea that he would bring out Jadakiss for “600 Benz,” followed by The Lox’s other band members Style P and Sheek for “All About The Benjamins“.

Wale continued his set by performing new tracks off The Gifted including “Rotation,” “Simple Man” and “Bricks,” bringing out Yo Gotti. T.I.’s newest signee also performed his street anthem “Stacks“.  After that, Wale slowed it down for the ladies and performed “Lotus Flower Bomb,” “Diced Pineapples” and “Bad“.

The biggest surprise of the night came when Wale brought out DJ Khaled to introduce his newest single “Clappas“. Before thanking his fans, Wale ended the show with his verse to “No Hands“.

The Gifted in store and on iTunes now.
