Fresh Celeb: Bun B.   New Spokesperson For Cadillac Sneakers

During our stint at Magic S.L.A.T.E. trade show last week in Las Vegas, several celebrities and friends stopped by the Complex Media Network booth to reveal new projects they are currently toiled over. This included hip-hop star Bun B. and his new (and unlikely) partnership with Cadillac Sneakers.

Yes, you read it correctly, Cadillac as in the luxury car company. A bit odd, that is till you see the market. Though it lost out long ago to the throng of competitors from Europe and Japan, Cadillac is still revered in most major markets in America. Having a footwear label seemed like a natural progression.  Like for more new designs from Cadillac Sneakers as Bun B. begin making special appearances across the US for his new Trill OG album.

Alright people, its obvious u found this article on accident, otherwise you would know that Bun B is on the forefront of hip hop fashion. He is always wearing the Jordan Bin 23's waaay before they become public. He is constantly sporting new fashions, whether it be a new pair of sneakers or a shirt release. Just because he doesn't rap about "knick-nacks" or "patty-whacks" doesn't mean people don't look to him for fashion tips. After all, he is the Trill O.G.!

These shoes are quite old, why is this partnerrship so late. Is it, because Cadillac (the shoe) hasnt been doing so well. I think they could have had made a better partnership with OTHER celebritys (rappers). NOT Bun B. It just dont seem like the perfect match. Ludacris would have been betterr; he appeals to different markets. I.e. luxury (of Cadillac), swagger (hip-hop/urban), he's more commercial, and he has a bigger fan base, amongst other things. NO disrespect to Bun B, but it just doesnt seem like the right fit (no pun intended). BUT congrats to Bun B. P.S. I have had these shoes for over a year now, and theyre just starting to advertise them. WOW. I have a black and a silver pair. I only purchased them because I drive a Cadillac and figured the shoes may be a smooth as my ride. :) Sincerly, -Life. Liberty. And the Pursuit.
