At last we get to see an official pic of the Louis Vuitton sneakers designed by Kanye West. The sneakers featured here come in an all red colorway with a special quilted flap on the back heel for your jeans. Check out the press release below:
Marc Jacobs and the Louis Vuitton men’s studio director Paul Helbers have some design competition this season. Kanye West, who was sitting front row at the Vuitton show, has designed a line of five LV sneakers. Only one design, above, was featured in the show — a monochromatic midtop with no frills, save for a quilted flap in the back, all the easier to tuck pants into. “The inspiration came from a jacket with a huge collar in the movie ‘Dune,’ ” West says. “Most sneakers focus on the tongue, so I wanted to do something different.” West knows whereof he speaks: he says he has no idea how many shoes he owns, but he does know that he routinely needs to send shipments off to storage. The LV-meets-Kanye kicks will be available at Louis Vuitton stores in June.(Via: The Moment)

Lil Wayne's venture to rock music is imminent. The rapper who announced back in 2008 that he is shifting gear from Hip-Hop to be a rock star will release his rock-themed album "Rebirth" on April 7, his publicist confirmed to MTV. The first single is "Prom Queen" which will be streamed on MySpace on Tuesday, January 27 right after his concert at San Diego's Cox Arena.
Earlier this month, Canadian actor/rapper Aubrey Drake Graham a.k.a Drake said that he contributes a song to Lil Wayne's rock album. He said, "Wayne's coming out with a new album, it's a rock album. A complete rock album. I have a song on there. It's something different in just that whole [Kanye West] '808's & Heartbreak', just throwing individuals off."
The news of Lil Wayne's rock project first erupted when the rapper himself declared during BET Hip-Hop Awards that he is picking up guitars. "People see the guitars and they wanna call it rock and roll. I plug up the bass, I plug up the electric, I plug up the acoustic - it's not really rock and roll, its just great music I'm doing right now," he announced.
This would be the project that was formerly called as an extended version of his huge-selling "Tha Carter III".
