Kanye West: 'No Risk, No Reward' for VMAN

Kanye West suits up in a Prada jacket and Tom Ford shirt on the cover of VMAN‘s “No Risk, No Reward” Issue, currently on newsstands.

The 33-year-old rapper was photographed for the mag by famed fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld.

“[Kanye]‘s strength is mixing music and fashion,” Karl said. “He has an instant instinct for what looks and sounds good. He makes everything new and different.”

Instead of chatting with VMAN – “I don’t want to do an interview. I want to let the music speak for itself,” he explained – Kanye created a poem out of his lyrics for the mag.

Some of his words: “Is hip-hop just a euphemism for a new religion? The soul music of the slaves that the youth is missing? But this is more than just my road to redemption, Malcolm West has the whole nation standing at attention. As long as I’m in polo smiling, they think they got me, but they’d try to crack me if they ever see a black me.”
