Essence Music Festival 2008: Men’s Fashion- Kanye West, Chris Brown, & more

Kanye West is one of the many headliners at this years Essence Music Festival

One of the biggest gatherings of African-American recording artist happens each summer at the Essence Music Festival. Only headliners perform, and year after year Essence delivers the best artist of every genre. This years artists included everyone from Rihanna to Chris Brown to Kanye West. Check out some of the styles stars rocked at this years festival- held this past weekend in New Orleans.

Our main man Kanye West does it up in an interesting
ensemble. He’s rockin a snake-skin baseball jacket, leather
gloves, and a hard to find Louis Vuitton Damier Azur
backpack. It’s alot going on,but we always make
exceptions for Mr.West.

LL Cool J rocks it the same way he does at every event: graphic tee, cross necklace, baggy jeans, and a NY fitted that matches his shirt. He wore the same “Respect” t-shirt to the BET Awards a few weeks ago, but it was in black. I’m thinking it’s part of his new clothing line that is coming out in September. LL’s clothing line will be exclusively sold in Sears.

Musiq hit the stage in a red leather jacket, aviators, and
Obama shirt. “Yes We Can”! You can expect to see someone
wearing an Obama shirt, at every single major event in the world for now on:-)

Chris Brown stays stuntin’ , this time he rocks a Bathing Ape “Baby Milo” shirt, light royal blue American Apparel pants, and Vans SK8 Hi Dripworks in blue/pink. You gotta admit even if you think the pants are questionable the shoes are sick.

LRG Green straight-leg pants, $68.00,
