Rappers And The Brand Killing Conspiracy

There is a silent phenomena going on that the Fashion Illuminati doesn't want the public to know about: the systematic use of rap music and rappers to completely drive up the sales of a brand to the point of over saturation, ultimately leading them to the graveyard AKA the shelves at Ross. Behind closed doors the powers that be single out brands and trends to eliminate. Whether the artists themselves are aware of this fact is unknown, but once they vouch their undying love for a particular brand on wax they have signed that brand's death certificate. If you own a brand, whether it is terrible or not, you may want to read up because you might be the next victim, bruh.

    Totally forgot about Givenchy their gear looks like Ed Hardy designing with dark undertones in mind and GOOD rides them like a pony

  • Tjay

    Those extraordinarily sagging pants in slide 3 are almost more of a joke than the brand. Almost. Really can’t believe you didn’t include Givenchy and GOOD music though, bruh-bruh. That’s pretty much all they wear.

    seems like chief keef is more about fendi belts and moncler vests. maybe people should return to being lo-heads? RL only came out stronger from that
