Michael Heal – Top 5 Givenchy References In Rap: 2013 Edition
As far as Givenchy goes, they’ve got the game on lock when it comes to rappers dropping their name. Some emcees even go so far to shoutout the man himself; Riccardo Tisci. However it takes a certain type of baller to rock Givenchy, let alone name drop it. So who did it best?
She pop more pills no cough
When shit get real she stop
Givenchy my bitches
Plain and simple, Ferg states his girls are head to toe in the brand — dripping in wealth.
That’s why I feel bad, popping Givenchy tags
Knowing that this tee could feed my nephew for a week
An extreme example of the price tag that comes with the brand — but what’s even more frightening is that it’s real. Some Givenchy tees can set you back more than a $800, and if you’re copping more than tees it’ll set you back a few racks.
Sittin’ court-side at All-Stars
And this? Givenchy
My shirt covered in all stars
Some may not consider Titty Boi as lyrical genius but these bars go hard. Stars are synonymous with the luxury brand — 2 Chainz is ballin' at the all stars while his style emits similar sentiments.
Riccardo Tisci Givenchy clothes
See me throning at the Met
The baller of all ballers, one half of the Throne and the one many consider the greatest of all time drops the name of the man who designs all these eye catching pieces; Riccardo Tisci. Hov plays on two references; Tisci designed the WTT album art and what he wore at fashions night of nights — The Met Galla.
Givenchy fittin' like it’s gym clothes
We really gymstars, I’m like D. Rose
No D-league, I’m like this close

The drug dealing dichotomy drops the best one of the year with this gem. Gym clothes are usually very loose and baggy, a trend Tisci introduced to mainstream fashion with his columbian fitting tees and sweaters. Push is balling so hard he’s shooting hoops in clothes that you couldn’t buy with a weeks pay check!
