THE INFAMOUS KANYE WEST IF & CO PLASTIC JESUS PIECE (NOBODY KNEW I WAS INVOLVED BECAUSE I NEVER SAID SHIT BEFORE) everyone thinks I might blurt out everything to gain notoriety, but sorry, I’m not that guy…. I got enough stats on the record to not have to worry about padding shit up…. and there’s so much shit I’ve done and never seen credit for and said “oh well… fuck it, let’s get em next time”
So obviously if you have ever google’d “kanye plastic jesus” then you already know that shit was the craze early last year…. people were going crazy over them…. what is that? where can I get one? man I want one! whoa they got different colors? You coulda got them from us via Pastelle’s online accounts… and then we coulda pulled a Nigo and produced our own fakes/variants and made even more $$$$$….
If kanye ever saw royalties on the shutter shades he brought back crazy, then he’d have another 2+ mill in his account right now…. as for these jesus pieces…. with the Pastelle / IF and Co collab…. it coulda been a million bucks cash outright each in our pockets. no lie. I won’t go into super detail, but damn….
I gotta say my boy Matt G(president of pastelle) def pushed hard on the subject even though he had pressure with the clothing brand coming out…. but #fail and we had the great ideas and resources! but if ……. fuck it I really am not in liberty to say much more on the business side…
I just want y’all to know, your boy KT aka K-Town aka Ben Baller always got a grind on the side whether it involves my company or not, this was the one that coulda took us to stratosphere status no doubt without having to use diamonds or gold or any precious gems of metals…. think about the recession and where high end costume jewelry is winning? (FYI all chanel jewelry minus the J12’s are fake/costume jewels and crazy priced) These were NOT going to be cheap at all because Ye’ had that name and clientele and our work speaks for itself…. And back to those shutter shades… look at where they are even now, years later… you see the shutter shades at every kiosk and beach sunglass seller don’t you? well this was an exclusive jesus piece which we had several materials (not just plastic) ready for blast off… some super exclusive shit only to be in certain accounts, then we had the slightly lesser grade joints maybe unbranded and that’s the shit to get P A I D off of! smh…. I’ll never let that one go…. sigh! for those who have been keeping up on my blog since early spring of last year, then you mighta seen some peeks of shit in the works…
aite, here’s some never ever seen before pics
but 1st some pics so you know what I mean
so now let’s get to it!
IBN aka ferrari murakami aka kanye’s barber’s Jesus piece…. next to our jesus piece mold/wax and next to the Yeezy Game worn down plastic jesus piece
and how could I forget? . . . .
so now I must say, I don’t know why or what the fascination is with the Jesus piece…. even my cousin Steve said to me over a decade ago…. we always have to stock jesus pieces and crosses…. that’s a staple period! true…. but damn… it’s crazy… and yes we have them in stock and in different styles and sizes… holler
but when Kanye and Takashi Murakami re-invented the jesus piece…. they came up with a pretty fucking ill piece
and a parting shot….
one of the Ben Baller true hollywood jewelry stories….
I won’t lie I’ve had writers block for a week or so now… It’s still a tough struggle…. I wear my pain on the inside for sure while I chuckle here and there (but rarely) and even though myth (or fact?) says that it takes more muscles to frown than smile? well I beg to differ for real.
was up at 6:15am this morning…. went to bed early….
I think I might head into the shop, but maybe not…. I do know that I’m gonna go see the midnight showing of Jack Ass 3-D tonight….. might head over to the private KR3W party, but this shit’s gotta stop and I gotta shake it off a little bit. RIP
p.s. don’t forget to “right click, save” and I bet I see these pics all over other blogs/sites…
