Earlier today, Def Jam’s 2 Chainz stopped by New York’s Power 105’s ‘Breakfast Club‘ for an honest interview; where the “F.E.D.S. Watching” rapper talked about being robbed in California last month, paying Ludacris $100,000 to leave his DTP imprint, still having a great relationship with Kanye West and his new album, Based On A Tru Story 2 which arrives sometime this Fall 2013. Head over to that station’s site here to watch the Atlanta rapper chop it up with DJ Envy, Angela Yee, and C Tha God. For the interview, 2 Chainz paired a white tee-shirt and jeans with $930 Giuseppe Zanotti Homme Double Gold Plated Strap Dual Zip High Top Sneakers. Waka Flocka also wore these sneakers here. Back in March, I reported that these sneakers are rumored to be designed by Kanye West. According to Kanye West’s long time personal barber and trusted style consultant Ibn Jasper, the rumor is true. He posted a picture on his Instagram back in March, with the caption, “50 rockin the YEEZi x Giuseppe’s“. What are your thoughts on 2 Chainz’s look and are you feeling these sneakers?
This past Tuesday (July 23), R&B singer Ciara hit the streets of NYC and partied it up with her boyfriend, rapper Future at her album release party. Once again, Cici was styled by marnxmarniand she showed off her die for abs in a black leather ensemble. The “Body Party” singer rocked a black top and leather overalls paired with lace-up boots. Some people aren’t feeling Cici’s new tomboy Aaliyah-inspired style but I like it a lot. Are you feeling it?

This past Tuesday (July 23), rapper Nas was a special guest on CNN. He spoke during Anderson Copper’s “Race and Justice In America” segment. The Hip-Hop legend discussed racism, prejudice and more. He had some pretty candid words on racism in America.
“We tend to judge each other. If I don’t know something about you, Anderson, I’m going to judge you based on a bad experience I had with another white person. If you don’t know me, and you walk down the street and you see me, my pants are hanging, you’re going to assume the worst. We need to learn how to deal with each other basically. At this point, America is looking like barbarians,” said Nas.
During the segment, Nas styled in a $721 Givenchy Crew Neck Sweater. This cotton-blend sweater features two-tone patterns, lace-up detailing and long sleeves. You can get Nas’ Givenchy sweater at Farfetch. NBA player LeBron James last wore this sweater here.
