Kanye West

Screw Louis Vuitton

10/28/2013 12:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

102813_kanye_power106_launchThe Louis Vuitton Don is no more ... Kanye West is now trashing the upscale brand for screwing their customers ... and claims he won't design for L.V. again.

Mr. West was on Big Boy's Neighborhood this morning on Power 106 in Los Angeles -- and put Louis on BLAST.

As you may recall ... Ye coined his nickname "Louis Vuitton Don" on his debut album "College Dropout."  He also designed a sneaker collection for the luxury brand in '09.

But now Kanye says he'd turn the designer down, if asked again ... mostly because of the outrageous amount they charge for their products.

Check out the video to hear his full explanation.

FYI -- Kanye's Louis sneakers had a price tag north of $800 ... and he once sat front row with L.V.'s CEO during Paris Fashion Week to promote the shoes.

Kanye has a problem with LV charging too much for gear, meanwhile he's OK with Nike selling his Yeezy's for ridiculous amounts. Fall back.

I called it and I was 100% right, kanye and kim were not the center of Internet attention for less than a 24 hour period and now kanye is being a little bitch again and GUARENTEE kim will pull something out of her huge ass like another nasty ass SELFIE so the duo can once again be the center of attention. PLEASE KIM AND KANYE WALK IN FRONT OF A BUS.

This is more to this story then he's telling. I suspect that it is because LVMH just lost their creative director, and offered the job to the former head of Balenciaga. As they should. BUT I bet this moron is so vain he probably though it should be him. There is more to this.

Kanye is a fraud, he is just trying to start his own fashion company now and abandon all those that helped him get started.

Omg.. Anna Wintour really needs to rethink her relationship with Kanye. I could never figure out why those two were ever in the same circle.

Didn't Kanye have a plain white t-shirt in his line for like $300 not too long ago?...and those sneakers of his were expensive too.

Even a stopped clock gives the right time twice a day… Kanye makes a decent point, and then proceeds to place his foot firmly back into his mouth.
