Rap mogul Jay-Z may have his own Rocawear clothing line ventures and ownership in the Brooklyn Nets, however, Jigga recently got spotted showing some love for Kanye West‘s hard-to-find Air Yeezy II’s in France.
Photos of Young Hov sporting Ye’s extremely limited kicks have now surfaced online.
Rap mogul Jay-Z left the south of France with wife Beyonce and daughter Blue Ivy wearing a Givenchy Apache Star Print t-shirt ($374). He wore camouflage printed pants, and the very limited Nike Air Yeezy 2 Sneakers along with Persol 649 sunglasses ($280). Jay-Z and Beyonce were on vacation for her birthday, which just recently passed on September the 4th. (Upscale Hype)
G.O.O.D. Music’s Hit-Boy admitted he did not yet have his own set earlier this summer.
“Man, he told me he was going to give me some, but I didn’t really press the issue. So I don’t have none as of now,” Hit-Boy said in an interview when asked about getting laced with a pair. “[$90,000 eBay bid?] Yeah, I know. That was ridiculous, right?” (Vulture)
Reports of a $90,000 bid for the Air Yeezy 2 kicks circulated online in mid-June.
Bidding for one pre-ordered pair of Kanye West’s Air Yeezy 2 sneakers have reached $90,100 on eBay. Though hip hop artist, Kanye West, has been wearing the shoes for months, the official release date for the Nike shoes is June 9, 2012. They retail for $245. (ABC News)
Recently, music producer Dow Jones hit up SOHH and boasted about snagging a pair of the elusive sneakers.
“Oh yeah, I’ve been a Nike child since day one, man,” Dow told SOHH when asked if he indeed is a sneaker head. “Henny is more into those fly shoes with the tips but I’m definitely rocking with that street wear. Look for us to do some commercials with Nike in the future. That’s what we’re working on now. Nike has always been a way of life, it’s not always just Jordans, man. … the Air Yeezys are perfect. They’re like pillows for your feet, man. That’s why you see them reselling for a couple stacks. It’s well put together. — Ye takes the time to do things right when he’s putting his name on something and that’s the same thing that we live by.” (SOHH)
