    If people are willing to pay for that I guess that would make him a genius. It would only be a scam if he didn't give them the shirt.

    For $120 for a plain white t-shirt, I sure hope he's soaking that shit in cocaine first. So at least the buyer gets something out of it. :)

    Why because he tricks people into thinking he is creative? He doesn't even write his own music and has a team of ghostwriters. Kanye had a whole album talking about not being materialistic and sells over priced goods. His fans eat it up. I guess that's what you mean by "marketing genius".

    I Find it hilarious.

    Listen to his song "new slaves", he raps about not being materialistic and falling for this "new slavery" (media bs). Then a month later he releases his lines over overpriced clothes. and his fans worship him like a god. its crazy

    Say what? You're right, he puts Strawberry Frog and other top marketing firms to shame. :|

    Now seriously, I've bought $120 under shirts before. If they're of quality construction and well-fitted, I'm in.

    That being said, I've seen him wearing his clothing line and quite frankly screw that ugly shit. His hoodies are CRAZY long. Everything is ill-fitted. And his jeans are way too distressed.

    Then again, I'm a more GQ/Esquire-type guy.

    That's what I mean by "under shirt." Just a plain white tee. Either crew neck or v-neck to go under a dress shirt or worn by itself. It's understandable to pay anywhere from $30 - $200 for one.

    It's easy to be a marketing genius among brainless sheep. His target audience is the same as Lil Wayne and all the other used up "artists". This is purely my opinion, what do I know about music. Turning on the radio is a thing of the past for me.
