Outside the Lines With Rap Genius – Meyhem Lauren Excerpt #4 - Karl Kani Lyrics
SameOldShawn: You had that line on "G.O.D." about how you used to rock Colombian suits with Hilfiger. What's a fashion choice you made back then that when you think about it or you see pictures, you think, that really was not a good look?
Meyhem Lauren: I mean, the Karl Kani stuff with the big metal buckles. I don't know why he had big metal plates in the middle of the shirts. It was crazy, because I remember I had my favorite Karl Kani shirt, and it had a big metal plaque in the middle. Then my mother washed it, and the shirt ripped, because the metal was so heavy that, just getting thrown around in the machine, it caused the shirt to tear. Those were just crazy now, when I look back. At the time it was hot, you know?
