The new icon collection from Memes On Clothes.

YASSS! Our prayers have finally been answered (and then some). We've been touting the genius of Yolo Polos ever since they first started stitching hip-hop memes on shirts, waaay back in August. After they paid tribute to Dada Drake (#DADALEAN), we put in a humble request for a Wheelchair Jimmy version. In September, we got an extended color palette, Jay Z's Dad Dive (#AWKWARDDIVE) and Miguel's Billboard Leg Drop—which, of course, we welcomed to the polo shirt fold with open arms. Sadly, Miguel's meme shirt was recently discontinued, but DRY YOUR EYES because the newly re-branded M.O.C. Brand now has FIVE new viral icons and one of them is—you guessed it—Wheelchair Jimmy. We're not sayin' we had anything to do with it, but... *flips hair*

ICYMI: Jay Z doesn't pop Molly, he rocks Tom Ford. Oh. You've heard his song "Tom Ford," and you already knew that? Well, apparently, Jay doesn't think we got the message. Or maybe he just loves Tom Ford THAT much. Or, even more likely, Mr. Carter realizes that his words are good enough to wear. Last night, Jay Z kicked off his Magna Carta World Tour in St. Paul, Minnesota and took to the stage in a custom, black and white jersey tee emblazoned with lyrical references to his standout hit, "Tom Ford." Hov repped the designer's name on the back of the shirt, along with Ford's birth year (1961) and the word "Molly" crossed out.

How's this for a Monday morning bombshell? It's been ten years since the release of Jay-Z's "Change Clothes" track featuring Pharrell Williams. Ten years!! And while the music video didn't exactly tell an accurate story of how time would unfold after its debut—it opens with Jay walking into what's meant to be his retirement party, though, spoiler alert: he released Kingdom Come just three years later—"Change Clothes" did have a strong and lasting influence on hip-hop style.
Jay Z for 'Vanity Fair.'

For the November issue of Vanity Fair, Jay Z be on his suit and tie s***, tie s***, tie. The man loves him a good dinner jacket and gets all pressed up in black and white on his first cover for the mag. The feature gives readers a rare glimpse into the life of a modern day mogul, who currently has a hand in pretty much everything. (But seriously.) Aside from his involvement with music, movies, video games, a theater, a nightclub and a sports team (*wipes sweat off brow*), Jay’s fallen hard for fashion. But, contrary to what one might assume, it’s not all about the Benjamins anymore—it’s about making improvements in the industry, he says.
