I get it that rappers make a lot of money, but they don't make as much money as they often portray. Even listen to those Pusha T interviews where he talks about all these rappers acting like millionaires when they're thousandaires. Now that they all are riding Kanye's dick and they are all suddenly into extremely high end fashion they won't be able to keep up. You got rappers like Tyga, Waka Flocka, ASAP, Big Sean, Cudi all rocking extremely high end brands that cost a ridiculous amount but they aint got the payroll Kanye does. It used to be shoes and throwbacks and no illegal downloading and rappers still went broke.

Now you have rappers dressing out completely in high end fashion where thousand dollar tee shirts and other ridiculously priced clothes all while selling way less than people did 10 years ago. Just burning them paychecks up. Kanye can get away with it cause he has that man sized payroll. That front seat rapper payroll. Not like those backseat rappers. Not saying any of these rappers are bad rappers or low end on the skill level (besides tyga, fuck hes wack) but they aint making near as much cake as Kanye, Wayne, and Jay. (don't even say "dey be makin mo muney dan yo ass". cause yes they are obviously). I am just saying they aren't pulling in as much as you think. I doubt Wakas got much more than a mill in the bank, which is a lot but is not a lot at the same time.

p.s. couldn't they get off Kanyes nuts a bit atleast, everyone knows Kanye is close with Givenchy through Tisci and that he rocked Givenchy hard first. So why do they all only wear Givenchy, they could atleast find another brand. Not just jump on the exact bandwagon, especially Tyga. That dudes trying to be the female alien version of kanye.

cudi had a single that ran the radio for months, hes got money...asap signed a 3 million dollar contract, hes got money...big sean is selling out shows along with singles receiving high replay on the radio, hes got money.. just because these artists aren't on kanyes level, dont mean their broke.. there is a lot of money in the music business and this is also 2012, 1 million dollars is chump change to these people, a million to us is a lot, not these guys

I see what you mean...however you have to think about discounts, the fact that labels may pay for these clothes, and even that we do not know exactly how much they make, obviously not as much as Ye, but most likely enough to pay for the clothes, in most cases.

A million runs out fast these days though. I am not saying they are broke by any means. I am just saying that over time a lifestyle like this of buying the highest end clothes will run these homies broke. I didn't mean to make it seem like Cudi and Sean or even Waka weren't big stars just that they aren't on the level to spending the kind of dough Yeezy spends. I mean Big Sean hasn't even sold 400,000 copies of FF. And if you combine all three of Cudis albums he barely edges over a million copies if that sold combined. Which is a lot of sales regardless but for how they are living not really. You have indie rock bands that sell that many and live a far less lavish lifestyle.

I know they can pay for them now... but over time the shit adds up. Granted I bet a lot of the GOOD dudes get hooked up clothing wise from labels through Yeezy and even Waka maybe by meting people by performing at Ye's fashion show
