Plagiarism: The Queensbridge Dropout

While we have always been quick to denounce anything with Marc Ecko’s name on it, we were caught off guard upon discovering Complex, his surprisingly stylish monthly buyer’s guide. We were yet again thrown for a loop by this month’s feature on Nas. The true best rapper alive modeled a colorful mélange of everything from Uniqlo to Yves Saint Laurent in an attempt to promote his controversial new album, N, which drops July 1st. Everything about the shoot was fresh, except for the tiny, nearly unnoticeable fact that Nas looks EXACTLY like Kanye West. The glasses, jeans, and even the jacket sleeves are all eerily reminiscent of the Louis Vuitton Don. Is this a washed up veteran’s attempt to revitalize his career by biting the style of rap’s biggest superstar? Or is it just “your favorite MC, still making some mean cash?” We’re stuck, feel free to comment.

Lil Wayne is good at rhyming, and thus could be the Best 1st Grade Teacher Alive, but nothing more.
Nas could wear a Borat swimsuit and still be the illest.
