visvim F.I.L. Wan Chai Store Grand Opening | Hong Kong

An interesting year so far business-wise at visvim; the label has recently raised it’s’ already astronomical prices on some items, and rumor has it that Bergdorf is soon to carry the brand. After last week’s trunk show and women’s line event on On Pedder, the visvim news this week was the opening of a new F.I.L. location in Hong Kong.

In the mainstream hip hop world, some consider Pusha T a prime candidate to break into the top ten of rappers – inasmuch as such a group can be objectively identified. This latest mixtape, in support of the upcoming Fear of God full-length album, isn’t swaying those opinions. It may not be the greatest mixtape yet of 2011, but it does feature a serviceable verbal performance by the Clipse rapper, over some failproof beats.
