Jay Z, covers VIBE magazine's 15th Anniversary Juice issue, on stands now. Inside, VIBE documents the rapper's humble beginnings as a crack and weed dealer in the Marcy projects to his failed 40/40 club venture. The Jigga delves into his not-so-secret marriage to Beyonce and his final album for Def Jam Records titled Blueprint 3.

The Juice issue also features a a behind-the-scenes look at Hip Hop fashion trends from Ralph Lauren to Karl Kani. Karl Kani is still doing his designer thing, but not for the Hip Hop heads who change styles and trends like they change their underwear.

Besides, he knows that train left the station years ago. So Karl Kani is designing clothes primarily for the ladies now. His clothes can be found in boutiques and major department store chains all over the world from Japan to Rome.

    That pic of Jayz is classic!!!!!LOL. His train may have left the station yrs ago, but theres no denying the impact Karl had on the fashion game.

  • DivaMama

    Damn them gold teeth!! LOL!!!

    I didn't know that KK was still doing his thing. I love to see people expand into foreign markets. Congrats to him.

    Glad to see Jay fixed his teeth. I have to admit the dude is smart about something - he has multi money making ventures. Karl Kani has held his on in fashion, you've got to respect that.

  • ReadTheBlog

    I hope Karl Kani didn't pay a mint for those shades, as they are clearly too little. Jay was ugly then and he's ugly now. Why's he 'killing' the cake and who the hell's tacky hands are holding it? Who is the stank photographer taking the pictures these days, over at VIBE? They need their ass whipped!

    another for the nobody cares segment

    Jay-Z has grown up and these old azz photos are a reflection of that growth.. Say what you will about JIGGER, like Master P, like Ice Cube, every hood N***GER must grow up and progress. You can't deny the former dope boy has got his VERY GROWN MAN ON!!! and I for one love the swagger.

  • Mzsuave

    First off, ain't nothing attractive about being broke! But even if he wasn't big timing like he is- I'd give him the business! I think he's hot! Loving those bug, juicy voluptuous, kissable, put-yo-mouth-on-it lips! {smootch!}

    @ PUREPISCES AND HUNE916

    POST ME UP A PIC OF YOUR AS/S STANDING NEXT TO OR SITTING IN HIS LAP, (CAN'T BE YOUR UNCLE) A KNEEGROW WHO LOOK LIKE JAYZ, AND I'LL BELIEVE YOU...SORRY, I'M NOT BUYING IT! SWAG, JUICY LIPS, A BUNCH OF BULL...HE GOT A FACE ONLY HIS MAMA AND MONEY GROBBLING BYTCHES WOULD LOVE. I DON'T BELIEVE ANY OF THE LADIES WOULD EVEN LOOK IN HIS DIRECTION, LET ALONE "GIVE HIM THE BIZNESS." IN FACT, HE PROBABLY NEVER HAD THE BIZNESS UNTIL HE GOT SOME MONEY SELLING DRUGS, I'LL PUT MONEY ON THAT, OR ELSE HE HAD A PROSTITUTE.

    YUKE...I'M WILLING TO BET WHEN HE WAS BORN, HIS DOCTOR HELD HIM UP AND SAID DAMN U SHOL-LIZ-UGLY! THAT MUTHAFUCKA IS UGLY, HE KNOWS IT AND ACCEPTS, NOW EVERYBODY ELSE JUST NEEDS TO GET ON BOARD WITH THE TRUTH.

  • mimi08

    @goat76

    You call it hate, i call it real...

    And you sound a bit dumb; if i were dumb, i'd be making excuses for jayz's looks, instead of callin it how i see it...please make sense!
