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.

So, is Kanye going to shoot off his mega mouth every time a designer says no to a Kim Katrashians line. No real designer would want to be associated with her... Kim is a non talent known for her sex tape, huge butt and fake boobs. Totally classless, trashy and would lie and cheat for the right money. He should really give it up, it's.

Somebody, anyone, tell me how this guy became a fashionista? He always looks like a teenaged thug, tennis shoes, holding up his pants with one hand, stupid leather pants and gray tshirt. He looks like a bum

Kimmel had it right when he spoofed him.

Btw, Haven't seen his homie JayZ or Beyonce around him lately. What's that all about? Maybe JayZ would be willing to make a Kim Kartashian line for Kanye and shut him up.

He maybe arrogant and a little delusional. But at least this interview made sense and wasn't a verbiage rant about leather jogging pants. In my opinion him and Kim are made for each other. A big ass to go with his big ego.

Remember those complaint/suggestions boxes at work & stores, he is a walking version of that, about 8 years ago, i saw him in concert, he was amazing, best concert i ever saw, but remember that was 8 years ago, guess i saw him in his prime before he started bitching about everything.

who in the hell told Kanye he should design clothes?! plain colored t shirts, baggy-but-tight leather pants and his hideous/clunky "air Yeezy" shoes are all i ever see him wearing in pictures. 13 year old girl with a Cosmo magazine could design better than this idiot "Yeezus".

More attention for stupid Kanye. He knew how much they were going to charge when he made the deal. He can say he won't design for them again because..................wait for it..................THEY DIDN'T ASK HIM! If this man's ego was any bigger he'd explode. Frankly, I'd like to see that happen.
