Kanye West has come a long way since rapping in New York City at the age of 19.
The rapper covers the August 2014 issue of GQ, much to the extreme delight of wife Kim Kardashian.
"So sexy!" she gushed via Instagram on Friday. "My husband on the cover of GQ shot by Patrick Demarchelier!!!"
West is donning a white T-shirt, black leather pants, a beige coat and a thin gold chain for the photo shoot. He also rocks a pouty expression and keeps his hands in his pockets.
The man is nearly too cool for GQ, but he's willing to pose anyway.
Excepts from Kanye’s magazine interviews are yet to be released, but the cover teases him as a “style god of epic proportions.”
So it's clear this will be one of West's more humble exchanges.
"Kanye West tells us how to survive a wedding, stay outrageous, and dress like a god,” GQ adds of the very important life lessons Kanye is about to pass along to readers.
We hope you're ready to take notes, everyone.
