Tom Ford Responds to Jay-Z's Musical Ode to the Designer

"I love that he gets a 'high' from my clothes."

Published July 11, 2013

It's no secret that Jay-Z is a huge Tom Ford fan. Not only does the rapper wear the designer's impeccably crisp suits to red carpet events, but he's even dedicated an entire song to Ford in his newly released album, Magna Carta Holy Grail. The flattered designer told WWD that he was happy to hear the "Tom Ford" track and how Jay-Z gets such a "high" from wearing his clothes.

"Who would not be flattered to have an entire Jay-Z track named after them? I mean, come on, it's pretty rare that something like that happens," Ford told WWD. "It's a kind of validation of one's work, as it means that one has really penetrated and made an impact on popular culture. My favorite line is 'I don't pop Molly, I rock Tom Ford.' I love that he gets a 'high' from my clothes. I have been dressing him for years now, and I have to say I think he looks great in my clothes. [He] is one of our biggest customers. He let me know about this quite a while ago."

This isn't the first time Jay-Z plugged Ford's name. In Justin Timberlake's "Suit & Tie," Jay-Z rapped about "Tom Ford tuxedos for no reason" along with other fashion designers during his verse in the song. always gives you the latest fashion and beauty trends, tips and news.
