(AllHipHop News) It is pretty clear Tim Gunn is not a fan of Kanye West's Yeezy Season apparel. The Project Runway mentor and former Parsons The New School for Design faculty member shared his disinterest in the collection during a sit down with HuffPost Live.
Gunn did not hold back on Kanye's in-laws either. When asked about rising model Kendall Jenner - Kim Kardashian West's half-sister - the reality television star brushed off the idea of Jenner being the next "it girl" in the fashion world.
"I think absolutely nothing [of her], to be honest," stated Gunn. "And I'm assuming there's a huge, perhaps million-dollars-a-month publicity wagon that is pulling these girls along and creating these lives for them. I'm distrustful of it, and I find it all distasteful."
He continued, "[Kendall Jenner] may be a perfectly lovely young woman. I just feel that she's tainted by the Kardashian aura of yuck."
Runway Richy offers up motivational words for anyone on their grind in his latest visual. The DJ Holiday rapper dropped off his Uh Oh mixtape last summer, but since then we haven't heard much from him. He dropped off this new single "Keep Gettin It" in April, and finally makes a return today with the official music video, premiered by HNHH. Directed by Matt Swinsky, the visual relays a pretty sad story about how life is for many street-oriented individuals. The video shows us a young'n who is caught up in street life and determined to get it, even if it's illegal. Things come full circle at the end though, as he ends up getting stabbed.
I'm still in shock..Still at a lost for words..2 nights ago I was in my studio working. 1:30 am I look up and in walks the Legendary Big Gipp from Goodie Mob. I tried not to go into fan/groupie mode and kept it professional. He gave us an ATL music history lesson for about an hour before we even started working on the record. This is 1 moment I'll never forget.
New music on the way.
Runway Richy x Big Gipp x Mo Diggidy Beats - How you feelin
Runway Richie's new video for "Keep Getting It" takes us on a journey through Atlanta's slums as one young man lets his thirst for riches get the best of him. I enjoy most of Richie's music and I've got to host more than a few shows where he's performed. This is probably my favorite song of his, glad that it got a Motion Family video treatment.

His Maybach Music Group affiliate Meek Mill, donning an Indian yellow jacket, got the crowd on their feet for 'House Party.' Diggy Simmons brought crooner Jeremih along with him for 'Do It Like You' and B.o.B. showcased his new single 'So Good.'
An opaque catsuit-wearing Lil' Kim made a return to the stage with classic tracks like 'Crush on You,' 'It's All About the Benjamins' and her song 'If You Love Me.' Robin Thicke got the ladies attention by crooning through 'Pretty Lil' Heart' sans Lil Wayne and Estelle gave a thrilling performance of 'Back to Love.'
