Randomly dropped in just to add my 2 cents to (I’m sure at this point) a long-dead and decomposed horse but….
SMH (vigorously) @ 50 sayin (I’m paraphrasin) it’s Kanye’s fault that tight jeans are cool and Macy’s closed 11 stores this past year due to the effect the “tight jeans era” has had on retailers, lol. This nucca is the Bill O’Reilly of hip hop, and this era of hip hop just happens to be like WCW/WWF in the late 90′s when they actually were catering to netheads and so-called insiders (that would be us) by using tech-talk only understood by the so-called insiders (see: Aggressive content, general public, etc.) . If he thinks the market of “hip-hop” clothing had that drastic of an impact on a retailer as big as Macy’s, then he may have been on the “pale horse” all along, lol. As someone who worked at Bloomy’s (owned by Macy’s), I can tell u for a fact that “urban clothing” is something they’ve been phasing out since I left in mid 07. They had stopped carrying Ed Hardy/Artful Dodger as early as late 06 for example. Sean John and Rocawear had BEEN long gone from their shelves. Akademiks was pretty much all they had and again this is over a year ago. My point? 50 should stop all this Ultimate Warrior-like pre-match promo and hit us w/ a REAL diss song already (Not some lil one-liner, that was cute but after ALL this time? C’mon). Ye prob still won’t respond and Weezy honestly shouldn’t either (but may just be stupid enough to do so).
