It has almost been a year since Kanye West did his infamous interview with Sway on SHADE 45, but designer Ralph Lauren is now responding to Yeezy bringing up his name during the rant.
In a recent interview with Dirk Standen for Style.com, the 74-year-old designer opened up about Kanye dropping his name in his “You ain’t got the answers Sway” rant. During Kanye’s interview from last year, Sway attempted to corner Kanye about building his fashion label from the ground up after Kanye said that he needed major backers for his clothing line. In the interview, Sway tells Ye that he himself has worked to establish his own smaller brands to which Ye responds, “”It ain’t no Ralph, though. It ain’t Ralph level.”
Lauren says that he was flattered with Kanye using him as a standard for success, “That’s very cool. Well, that’s great. If I were to cater to Kanye, he would know that I’m catering to him. The fact that I make what I make—he gets it. He gets the quality and he respects it. And I think that’s the key, why I work all the time is to do that. That’s the fun.”
