Kanye West has always been the underdog, always having to prove himself. Rawkus Records refused to sign him, rapper’s turned him down when he asked to feature on their records he produced, he even offered to lower his rate. Jay Z still was in doubt when Dame and Biggs signed him.
This could very well be why he is the way he is now and we can see how it can come off egotistical, arrogant, maybe a little asinine even but Kanye has earned the right. His albums had to top the charts and his sneaker collaborations broke new ground giving him the pass to beef with one of the biggest sneaker companies in the world. But do you think he cares about that? Nope, he’s Kanye West, beside’s he brokered another deal with another sneaker company, just as big.
That’s what he does, he gets his point across. He is the “don’t believe me? just watch” kinda guy. Now, with a few collaborations under his belt, his influence can truly make him a fashion icon. Reminisce with us over Yeezy’s many styles through the years.
