Many rappers (and of course athletes) have had relationships with apparel companies and shoe deals. My issue is when you start talking about clothing lines purchased by whites such as Polo (Ralph Lauren), Tommy Hilfiger, and Calvin Klein you start to get into if you can afford this you are closer to being on their level. If you get to talking about high end luxury lines like Versace, Gucci, Prada, and Louis Vuitton you now think you are representing the wealthy. So many rappers/entertainers like to shout out these labels as some sort of representation of how much money they have or what they are worth. The sad reality is these labels don’t desire for you to wear their brands because they not only don’t want your money then don’t what their brand to be associated with your blackness.
So why do we still continue to want to support and represent those brands that don’t care about us. Your guess is as good as mines. But if you want to support black labels and start new trends here are a few you can start with. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
