8. Wearing Every Single Fashion Label
J.P. Morgan once said, “if you have to ask the price, you can’t afford it.” Such is the case with the highest of the high-end fashion labels…many custom haute couture pieces are, frankly, unaffordable except to the 1%, but that hasn’t stopped every rapper — struggle and otherwise — with slapping on every “high fashion” label known to man (some legit, some fugazi) before they set foot out their door. Your kid’s college tuition is being worn on your waist in the form of a Gucci belt…but you don’t care, because you have to impress other unemployed dudes wearing the same Gucci belt, forgoing their kid’s college tuition in the process. Very impressive. Meanwhile, name one rapper who has received a check from any of these labels for all the promotion. Don’t worry, I’ll wait.
