Tom Ford On Jay-Z “Tom Ford”

2013 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Hosted By Graydon Carter - Arrivals

Jay-Z loves to wear Tom Ford. So much in fact, that he named a song after him on Magna Carta Holy Grail. WDD spoke with the designer and he had this to say:

“Who would not be flattered to have an entire Jay-Z track named after them?  I mean, come on, it’s pretty rare that something like that happens. It’s a kind of validation of one’s work, as it means that one has really penetrated and made an impact on popular culture.”

“My favorite line is ‘I don’t pop Molly, I rock Tom Ford.’ I love that he gets a ‘high’ from my clothes. I have been dressing him for years now, and I have to say I think he looks great in my clothes. [He] is one of our biggest customers. He let me know about this quite a while ago.”

    I think Jay has just snagged free Tom Ford shit forever with this song…

  • JOHNYblaze

    Is Tom ford gay? I like his sunglasses line.

    but this beat is dope but word hova super dumbed it down on this track.
    And thankfully no jean Michel basqiat references on it.

    great stuff this …….. only thing though tom ford , along side mark Jacobs and almost the whole designer industry that produces high end stuff is gay though ……… I was shocked to learn that ..

    I don’t know if I’ll ever understand supposedly hood/ghetto/urban black rappers showing mad love to gay white clothing designers, yet it doesn’t really work the other way around….I mean, where’s Gucci’s Jay-Z line?

    ^ that Tommy Hilfiger thing was NEVER true. Do your research, it was urban legend.

  • Dre

  • @ Midsize Germ

    Idk where you’re getting that. When Blue Ivy was born, Tom Ford made her a one-of-a-kind custom pair of baby shoes, designed specifically around her feet as a birthday present… idk how much more love you can show somebody.
