Kanye West has been very vocal about his desire to get in to the high end fashion world. Kanye has been expressing how he feels towards the fashion world through his rants while on tour and radio interviews. A lot of people have had there opinions on Kanye’s rants, and now fellow rapper 50 Cent has decided to comment on the situation.
During an interview with XXL, 50 explains how he doesn’t think Kanye will be able to have success right away in the fashion industry.
“In Kanye’s case, wanting to be a part of high-end fashion that’s a process,” 50 Cent said. “It’s not something that just happens. It’s like—they’re not gonna allow you to tomorrow wake up, say ‘This idea, that idea. This idea and I’m in. and I’m hot.’”
50 Cent also touched on how he feels about the evolution of the fashion industry throughout hip hop.
“It’s a shift in the way the actual audience is hanging. Now they’re into high-end clothing now,” he said. “They’re wearing European-cut clothing. And as clothes got tighter and tighter and tighter they start buying designer clothing that’s—the person probably wouldn’t want to see them in their clothes. But they don’t realize how much influence pop culture actually has.”
