Urban fashion pioneer Karl Kani is back
Karl Kani with DrJays.com’s Boss Lady
The one and only Karl Kani dropped by the DrJays.com offices today for an interview with our Boss Lady.
The urban fashion icon is gearing up for the national launch of his new line, Kani Life Denim.
Born Karl Williams, Karl Kani chose his last name because, he says, “Can I?” is a challenge he poses to himself every day.
He was shown love from hip-hop greats such as the Notorious B.I.G., with Biggie boasting, “So recognize the d**k size/In these Karl Kani’s/I’m in thirteens/Know what I mean?” on his hit “One More Chance”.
After dropping past our office, Karl was in fact headed to the set of the upcoming Biggie Smalls biopic, Notorious, as his brand is naturally featuring heavily in the film.
Another legendary rapper who rocked Karl Kani was Tupac Shakur, pictured in an early 90′s magazine ad for the brand below:
