Rapper Kanye West has applied to the most prestigious fashion school in Britain, Central Saint Martin’s College (the same school Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney and John Galliano went to) for a master’s degree in fashion. On March 2nd, according to the The Sun, he met with Professor Louise Wilson, course head, to discuss his application. He’s already designed for brands like Louis Vuitton, Nike and interned with Fendi so this is pretty much a solid win for him. All that’s left is for the school board to come up with a decision, if they accept him classes begin later this year.
In other West news, a pending legal problem seems to have finally come to a conclusion. Suge Knight, rap mogul and founder of Death Row Records, was shot in a leg at one of Kanye’s parties in Miami in 2005, in his opinion, as a result of negligible security. Knight sued West back in November but the case was thrown out for lack of evidence. Recently the situation was handled outside of court for an undisclosed amount. Case closed!
