Reebok Bandit Checks Louis Sneaker Sniper?
They may bear the Louis Vuitton name, but Kayne West’s sneaker collection – selling at up to $1,300 a pair – reportedly costs just $8-bucks to manufacture each pair! This according to 50 Cent, who recently took to Twitter to blast the Rock-A-Fella Records rapper for getting away with robbery.
Fiddy says Kanye landed the deal with Louis Vuitton after flying to France to connect with gay designers over the “Don’s”, “Jasper’s” and Mr. Hudson” footwear. Now, Fiddy says even though his line of Reebok G Unit Sneakers reasonably retail at between $40 and $70 – he has still cashed in big, raking in a whopping $80M from his deal with Reebok..
Here’s what Fiddy tweeted about Kanye’s Louis Vuitton sneakers:
“I’m not trying to sell g-unit shoes to you.you bought it already. I’ll go get a gay French designer and sell you $8 sneakers for $1,300.”
Is 50 being blamed for jacking Nicki Minaj’s rap style – in his new song “My Life“, featuring Adam Levine and Eminem? I don’t know, but next time I see Nicki Minaj’s boyfriend, Safaree Samuels, on Hollywood Boulevard – going into Bizzy B to buy Nicki’s lingerie – I’ll ask him.
