Ate breakfast at Gucci
This is also a reference to the book/film Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Remember, he walked in Nobu with no shoes a few years ago.
This line like the one before it is about Kanye’s status. Now anyone who’s been in a Gucci store knows it’s the ish, right?
Now in a place like that the last thing you can do is eat, ruining their expensive goods or dropping crumbs on the damn carpet! Kanye is saying his status is so great that he can stroll into a Gucci store eating breakfast like its nothing. Why? Because he is Kanye West of course!
Either that or he could have actually just ate breakfast at an actual Gucci restaurant (high-end boutiques have reportedly set up any meal for the highest rollers).
And actually, in Milan, several of the high-end fashion stores such as Gucci have a café in the store, which serves coffee, chocolates and pastries. The idea is to provide you with a place for a quick bite and a way to re-energize in the middle of a multihour shopping marathon. They even serve little Gucci chocolates with the Gucci emblem on them, and there is a competition between Gucci, Prada, and Armani on who has the best espresso in their stores.
