Even though Kanye is still on my cancelled list, this moment with Virgil Abloh was extremely touching.
Virgil Abloh is an inspiration to many creatives in the city of Chicago.
From FNF radio with Lupe Fiasco to being Kanye West’s Creative Director to now being the first African-American to hold the position of Artistic Director for Louis Vuitton is one impressive career.
Today, Abloh presented his first collection in Paris and during his final bow, he and Yeezy shared a touching momenet

Two grown men who have known each other and worked together for years being openly emotional and supportive of each other? How can you not appreciate this moment!
For those that may not be aware of their history, let me catch you up a bit…
Virgil Abloh and Kanye West both interned at Fendi together back in 2009. Following the internship, Kanye hired his friend to be the Creative Director of his DONDA creative agency. When Abloh got the Louis Vuitton gig, West SEEMED to not be so thrilled about it…but obviously those feelings have been pushed to the side.
Today was a historic moment and one that is sure to inspire and bring out the best young, fashionable black kids everywhere.
