Jay-Z: the rapper who loves fashion


Celebrity News: He has its own brand of clothing, his perfume and in addition, it has collaborated with the multibrand store Barneys.

Musician, producer, entrepreneur and fashion icon. It is the clear example that the American dream if it is fought, is fulfilled.

His childhood at Shawn Carter, when it was not yet a hipster neighborhood, was nothing idyllic. When he was 11 years old his uncle died stabbed and his father, hooked to drugs, left him and his mother.

He has won 19 Grammys throughout his career and has sold over 75 million copies worldwide, which is why he is known as the king of hip-hop.

Entrepreneur and rapper in equal parts, the New Yorker says that everything he has learned in life has been taught the street. And all the admiration he awakens is not only due to his talent but also to the way he is overcome every day. A clear example of this is “Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film” (artistic manifestation with spontaneous participation of group) in which they participated Adam Driver, Jenna Lyons and Marina Abramovic and the rap shows like an artistic expression more.

More than a style icon

Form together with Beyoncé one of the most fashionable couples in the world. Exaggerated and extravagant, he is one of the most sophisticated rappers and his wardrobe does not lack the classic wide trousers, caps and, of course, gold chains.

Where does the eagerness of rappers come from being ostentatious? It’s their way of “celebrating small victories,” he told Vanity Fair in an interview. He has managed to take advantage, as few have done so far, in his image as a fashion icon in the world of hip-hop. Jay-Z collaborates with the emblematic multi-brand Barneys, for whom he has created A New York Holiday, a clothing line that includes leather backpacks, raincoats, blankets, rings … in gold, silver, black and white, their fetish colors.

And for its little outside also has its own perfume, Gold, a brand of cigars, another clothing line, Rocawear, and designed a line of watches for Hublot.

On the net carpet he shows his most elegant side and looks tuxedo, both in its most classic version in black and white, as in the most daring, in total white, but when it really pulls out its true self is on stage. There he does not walk in half-tones and shows his more urban style: T-shirts, caps and gold.
