During the last New York Fashion Week, the rapper from Harlem with a love for grillz, girls, chin-length braids, and baseball caps owned the scene. He flashed his trademark middle fingers (which temporarily made Terry Richardson's thumbs obsolete) at seven different shows, walked down the runway for Hood by Air, and even appeared in a spoof video for Alexander Wang. This Sunday, the fashion darling and hip-hop star will perform at Bonnaroo. Will his newfound dalliance with the fashion world be enough to make him wear a man skirt like Kanye? Or maybe even a long tunic or floral top. At the very least, we can expect to see a lot of middle fingers waving around. And bring some shades, or that winsome grin plated in silver and gold will blind you.
