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.
