Within his cover feature, Slim Shady reveals just how much respect he has for Young Hov and his summer 4:44 album.
“I look to Jay for a lot of shit. I look to Jay for where he’s at in life and I look for 4:44, the punchlines. I’m listening to music in a way that most people probably aren’t. I’m looking, just like they might be looking for a different thing. They might be looking for a feel, or whatever it is, I’m looking for the sharpness and I’m looking for the punchlines. He’s got a lot of funny punchlines on that sh*t. To me it’s like, Jay is a good guy because he’s a guide for… It’s almost like he can see what’s going on in hip-hop. He’s very in tune with the times and then he does something his own way, and then other people follow it. That’s amazing to me, so I’ve always looked up to Jay for that.” (Complex)
This week, Young Hov released a new collection of 4:44-inspired clothing with fashion brand Fear of God.
The collection was exclusively released at The House of God Pop-up Shop at luxury boutique Maxfield L.A. on Thursday, hours before the Empire State of Mind hitmaker wraps up the North American leg of his 4:44 Tour at Los Angeles’ The Forum. The range features black and white T-shirts, long-sleeved tops, hooded sweatshirts, a leather jacket, and hats, with the words “Fear of God” emblazoned across many of the pieces, which also include references to the Bible verse John 4:44.

Fear of God designer Jerry Lorenzo has a variety of pieces in the set ranging from long-sleeved t-shirts to sleeveless hoodies.
Lorenzo opts for a monochromatic palette of black for his latest collection, comprised of streetwear classics like long-sleeved t-shirts, hoodies, a leather jacket, hats and denim pieces. The Tommy Ton-shot lookbook showcases the genderless range with men and women alike clad in each of the pieces. Some pieces include a long-sleeved black t-shirt with “Fear of God” inscribed all over and a sleeveless hoodie with Chinese lettering emblazoned on the front. (Billboard)
This week, Lorenzo has hit up social media to share some fresh shots.
