Yves Saint Laurent was created by French fashion designer Yves Henri Donat Mathieu-Saint-Laurent in 1961. At the age of 17, Laurent moved to Paris to pursue a fashion career. He was eventually hired as couturier Christian Dior’s assistant. When Dior died, he was named head of the House of Dior. On June 1, 2008, Laurent succumbed of brain cancer. YSL left behind a great impact and his brand could be seen on some of the biggest rappers in the industry. I came up with a list of five rappers wearing YSL. Peep my list and vote who rocked it best below:
Last year Jay-Z performed in Australia for his “Blue Print 3″ tour. During Jay’s set, he rocked a black patent leather YSL logo belt; with a black tee, black cargo shorts, black socks, and a pair of black Radii Moon Walker sneakers.
