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.

Sigh. So he was unaware that LV charged outrageous amounts for its merch, or he thinks that's something new? I swear Kanye is 11 years old.

How much of that did $800 did he pocket. He may be upset because his piece of the pie wasn't big enough. Really doubt if he is concerned for the consumer.

Is this dude serious - HE is one of the top ten most influential people in fashion? Someone needs to tell this guy he is nothing but a ridiculous joke and he should learn how to speak english.

Puh-Leeezee......I'm sure the entire LV empire will crumble to the ground now. Get over yourself, you talentless, narcissistic, bad tempered POS.

Who'd put West up to dissing Louis Vuitton? Kris Jenner? Media spinning queen thinking West can rehabilitate his tanished image with a few interviews with LA's 106 FM radio and Jimmy Kimmel make-up session. Nobody is buying the Kool Aid that West (or Kris Jenner) is trying to sell. West only appears more bipolar than he already is. One day you hate LV, next day you don't. One day you hate Jimmy Kimmel, next day you don't. Enough already, enough!

...Kanye would have no problem collaborating with L.V, if L.V was willing to give him a larger percentage of the profits...Kanye is angry, jealous, and bitter L.V is the more established hustler in the fashion-world...L.V probably paid Kanye through the sphincter, in the last business-deal he made with him...

Isn't this the same a$$wipe that sold an $120 PLAIN WHITE T-SHIRT with his initials on the inside? And he thinks LV has "outrageous" prices? LMAO!

The conversation was good until he said he was the most influential person in fashion in the past 10 years. lol.

Anyhow- i leave this asking myself. Will Kanye rise to Mcqueens level in 10+ years?

It's official- he is using KK to gain exposure & get a broader platform, & to lighten up his gene pool.Never saw him on TMZ, until he hooked up with her.(thank goodness).No wonder he is glowing! Doesn't she ever get tired of being used? E.g Kris J. & entire family~?

Blacks buy fake LV's Kanyes BITCHING hurts no one. LV is glad to keep those shiftless shop lifters out of their stores.Just like Oprah getting snubbed in Hermes. Hermes does not have a large Black buying public.

OK    

A person with real talent would not have to brag about themselves. Little Miss Kanye sounds very bitter and jealous of LV and wishes she could be as influential as they are.
