Kanye West is over at Complex magazine’s site giving fashion ratings to everyone from Swizz Beatz to Will.i.Am.

Poor Will doesn’t fare too well; his pal Kanye gives him a big fat zero out of five for his style!

What do you think about Kanye’s own style?

  • Clyde Smith says:

    There’s really nothing new about Kanye’s fashion game. I guess if you like those kind of clothes it’s good but I think he’s boring.

    Anybody know what’s up with the American Apparel quote from Kanye?

    My man, you are perhaps one of the most retarded fools I’ve ever read a comment from on this website. “White ppl fashion?” Dukes, get you some knowledge of Hip Hop history — quickly! Ye ain’t the first to be rockin preppy shit in the game, yo. Cats was rockin IZODS, Le Tigres, and ish a looong time ago (except they was mixin sh!t up with striped Lee jeans & Kangols). And if you had a clue, you would know Ye been said that that dressed-up look is out… dude be rockin streetware brands now (Crooks & Castles and sh!t).

    And WTF you mean by “ghetto hood style?” Grown-a@@ men who rock they jeans four sizes too big need they wigs pushed sideways.

    Dumbass!

    Brothas still callin each other the “N” word when they ancestors died to eradicate such an ugly-a@@ word. Get you mad at that, son!

  • Jay-C says:

    Kanye is one of the best rappers out right now. Thats all that matters.

  • Donna says:

    No way! JAY-Z has that title on lock.

  • Clyde Smith says:

    Sorry I asked a sensible question.

    However, I agree with Judo guy that the Izod/Preppy stuff got rocked a lot harder back in the day.

    And now I want to ask another question but I won’t. However, if I did, it would be something like, “What was the name of that prep wear boosting crew in New York that would wear multiple shirts and so forth?”

    That’s some history I’d like to know more about.

  • Fashinista says:

    All I can say is F*** Noooo. I mean everyone knows ol’ dude is Gay. Look at what he rap about. Childbye, ol’ dude need to realize he ain’t hard neither can he dress better than anyone. Now, TI can dress.

  • AlwaysFitted says:

    It’s humourous that my boi Kanye is even being questioned of his status of “Freshest Rapper Ever”. Simply put, he has revolutionized hip hop style and has even brought back an aspect of respectability. No longer do we see doodez running round drownin in 3xl T’s, we have people rockin polos, lacoste and ralph lauren and hip hop belong in the same sentence. Kanye West is a revolutionary in my mind, and call him a fag if you want, but to call him that you have to be a weak person, with no self respect who needs to rag on a successful black man who is finally showing a sense of style which rap and hip hop highly lack. Anything he touches is fire, bottom line.

  • hugenefner says:

    Now me being a big Kanye fan i would say he is one of the best dressed rappers out now but just because he where Gucci and louis vuitton it does’nt mean shit. anybody can where that and think the look fly or cool, and they probley look like shit. kanye does’nt let his clothes where him he where’s the clothes. His whole demeanor and swagger is what makes him best dressed, not the damn designer. so the hater with their homophobic word need to suck a dick no homo! kanye change the game just like many other great mc’s have, so please dont hate, just give man his props you dont have to like him just give him what is rightfuly his!

    “everyone knows ol’ dude is Gay. Look at what he rap about. Childbye, ol’ dude need to realize he ain’t hard neither can he dress better than anyone.” ~ Fashinista

    Boy, oh, boy! I’ll tell ya, it’s somethin when men be worryin about other men’s sexuality (makes ya wonder). “Look at what he rap about…” “…he ain’t hard neither…”

  • bless says:

    he think he fly but.. what does he really know about fashion? he just got money and he could afford couture lever clothing thats all… nothing to do with urban fashion

  • he’s def different and interesting

  • kanye killa says:

    kanye is a fag get it str8 and everyone supportin that fagget is a fag also bitxhes

  • real>fake says:

    I agree with hugenefner it’s really more about swagger than anything and as a quick example I’m going to put this out there……everybody knows or has seen a cat that’s trying to pose like he’s something that he’s obviously not but if he showed up with a designer fit say gucci with BAPES how many of you would question if it was fake or not just based on how he carries himself? It’s like this clothes really don’t make you THEY DO however portray your possible status like Gucci and Louis if you have that especially in urban culture it’s a sign that you ballin and you got some money(ie. $300 just for a GG belt) but you could be rich without having something that says I’M RICH!! because we all know money speaks for itself if you got it you don’t even have to flaunt it

  • wearing Gucci and Luis Vuitton doesn’t make him fashionable. but he coordinates well himself following white trend.
    if you are tired of seeing fag trend you should check out Fuya shirts.

  • Everybody got their own scene of style and I like that about Kayne, his style is different. Not the same style every otha got like chains and blings. I wouldn’t consider him the best dresser but still….

  • Morgan says:

    Kanye Look is Fresh!!U have to say that!everybody got they opwn style!Saying his look aint right for the hip hop game is wrong!wearing what they call the apporiate attire to b a rap artist is not true!Kanye syle is orgianl,different!N he is one of the best dress rappers!!So stop hating!!!

  • Z says:

    but he coordinates well himself following white trend.

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • hah says:

    His style is alright. A little disappointing considering he has a grip of cash. I do like his shoe collection though.

  • swagg_tuff says:

    are yall crazy ?// Kanye got mad swagg frm his clothes 2 is raps.
    all kanye stuff cost bread and yall talk bout he drss like a white boy!
    even if he do he mad it poppin. Just beacause some of yall don’t know nothing other rocawear ,baby phat,and jordans that don’t mean my son can’t dress.

  • 21st Wonder says:

    i suppose 8732 and g-unit are representative of what “true hip hop artists” should wear…lol yeah right

    as nas said “people fear what they don’t understand…hate what they can’t conquer…guess its just the fury of man”

  • Bigz says:

    YO KANYE YOU A FLY ASS DUDE NO HOMO DUDES DON’T UNDERSTAND FASHION THEY THINK ROCKIN G-UNIT, ROCAWEAR, ECKO ETC IS FLY ALL THE TIME THEY DON’T KNOW FASHION AND HOW TO SWITCH UP THERE SWAGGER.

  • blookie says:

    kanye west is definetily fresh but i think t.i. just might be fresher its all bout that ATL look

  • MadLogic says:

    I like the dude, but his so-called style is not new, I mean all it is a repeat of Boys 2 Men, preppy style back from the 90′s. nothing new…………..and the way he wears his collars up, “WE” meaning WEST INDIANS have been doing that for years before, I am not hating the dude, but his fashion sense is not anything revolutionary to me at all. But, it’s good change from all the gear worn by the stupid grilled-mouthed artists that people seem to like. :-)

    -I’m done

  • FLY MIKE says:

    I AINT GONNA FRONT HE DO GET FLY BUT SOMETIMES THEM NUTHUGGERS DO BE A LIL TOO MUCH!!!!

BE CLEAR COOGI AND LRG DONT MAKE YOU FLY EITHER!!!!!

  • Yeezy says:

    his style aint new but i think it is one of the best if not THE best dressed rapperz out now i mean to be a rapper u dont have to wear baggy jeans wit the waist at ya kneez and 4 sizes too big for a shirt we need sumthin new in hip-hop kanye is a great rapper and dresser, we need more of this in the rap game

  • ye-ye says:

    kanye is big timing if it was someone white wouldnt be she said LET THE MAN GET HIS SHINE ON STOP HATIN ON HIM AND LEARN FROM HIM DONT GET MADD GET INFORMATION I LOVE HIM I NAMED MY LITTLE GIRL KANYE IM FEELIN THAT SHIT. MUCH LOVE

  • kevin says:

    kanye just bringin back the preppy isht but he puts some urban fashion flair. look at his cover on Jet he was preppy but rockin j’s on his feet so theres nothin wrong with making ur own style nothin wrong with a lil polo and some preppy stuff brothas was rocking lacoste back in the 70′s and plaid shirts all those old man looks as we call em now they did it big remember run dmc created the idea of wearin what they wore in the streets as hustlers. they the reason we rock addidas with no strings old school inspires new school it all ties in with kanyes style his beats are samples from old school jams so therefore he dresses old school he aint no homo he just doin what dro and T.I. been doin bringin old school sexy back. and thats real.

  • Luvfashion says:

    OK some of yall pissed me off! How u gon say that he following white trends and all that bullshit? Kanye dresses well and he dressed for himself not for yall to judge him just because he doesn’t wear urban clothing! Not everyone has to be in Rocawear, G-Unit or Ecko to be fashionable. Just because thats all you used to doesnt mean he has to wear it. Thats the problem is that most young black men don’t know that there are other clothing brands out there and you dont always have to wear your pants hanging down to your ass! And wearing your pants down to your ass is a trend that came from prison because you aren’t allowed to wear belts and other men get easy access if you know what I mean. So I commend Kanye for being different and not following trends that black america thinks that we only supposed to wear!

  • nae says:

    look man a lotta yall are haters jus cuz u not as fresh as the dude kanye.
    u dont have to dress ghetto or wear baggy pants && big tees to be fresh.
    kanye is unique.
    aint nobody in da game like kanye && he brings his ow style to hip hop.
    everybody else dresses the same wearing baggy clothes, it may look good on them, but they aren’t KANYE WEST.
    he is his own man && he dresses how he feels will keep him most comfortable.
    he’s different && yall need to hop off his swagg callin him a fag && gay && shit.
    you know what you are?? MADDDDDDDD!
    i mean if everybody in da hip hop game dressed the same wit hoodies, tee shirts, sneakers and loose jeans, wouldnt that shit get old?
    hell yeahh.
    and KANYE switched it upp.
    stop hating.
    get over yourself jus cuz ur not KANYE.
    by far the best dressed rapper in the game.

  • b says:

    they dress like they´d be fashion guy´s, but they forget where they come from.

  • Unwritten Legend says:

    I’d say the best dressed is Puffy, everytime you see him he’s in one of the freshest suits that makes anybody, “hood” or preppy, sit back and say DAMN! I NEED ONE OF THOSE! Yes, Kanye has changed the whole hip hop style along with a bunch of other people, but it needed to change and needs to keep on changing. The oversized clothing looks dumber than a brain dead retard and (for all you homophobes) girls DON’T like NOT being able to see a man’s figure through his clothes. So that being said, you’re a damn fool if you think wearing smaller or a different style of clothes makes you gay, you just need to get off his scrotum and quit hating because he’s different and you could never see his level.

  • Arielle says:

    Is that a purse?

  • i sWeAr I g0 duMb! says:

    theres nothing revolutionary about it, you can pull any middle aged white guy off the street n he’ll b wearing the same shit. real talk. most stylish is either lil wayne or the pack. kanye is nice tho, dont get me wrong.

  • Spiegel says:

    the outfit he has on in this pic is plain, lol, yea he is a nice dresser but lately I see people wearing scarves and it makes me wanna throw up, I saw this one girl wearing a scarf and she was fanning herself with a piece of paper cuz she was hot, lmao, take that shit off! nah but too many people are jocking the dude’s style, lol, me personally I try to stay away from his clothing haha, but don’t get me wrong, I never did wear baggy shit. The other day I had on those red patent leather supras and some chick came up to me and was like, hey are those reeboks? LMAO!! I swear I almost slapped that bitch, anyway, I’d rather dress my way than kanye’s way, I don’t wanna be compared to anyone let alone this dude, he can dress, that’s all.

  • oh god loosers says:

    oh man r u freaking kidding me? if hes such a fag then why do i seee brothas these daiis on the street dressing white? so r u alll calling ur own kind a fag? so doesn’t dat make u fags as well? Kanye he got swag style and lyrics his contribution to the game just made everything a whole lot neater… theres alot more ppl with their pants up den down oh and what about lil wayne he officially got into preppy but added a little ghetto style into it skinny jeans into bagggy jeans i mean come on is he a fag too? -_-
