Kendrick Lamar Reveals His 'Mount Rushmore Of Style'

Kanye West is also a fan of this fashion trend-setter.

Kendrick Lamar has made no secret of his musical influences — 2Pac, DMX and JAY-Z, to name just a few — but when it comes to fashion, there’s one name in particular he holds in high regard.

The Pulitzer Prize-winner took to Twitter on Thursday (September 29) to pay tribute to fellow fashion-forward artist and Los Angeles native Taz Arnold.

Kendrick posted a slideshow of Arnold’s bold sartorial choices, highlighting some of the eccentric, eye-catching and often custom outfits that he’s become famous for.

“the westside original,” he captioned the photos. “my mount rushmore of style.”

Aside from being a style icon, Taz Arnold is also an accomplished musician and has actually collaborated with Kendrick Lamar in the past.

One-third of the genre-fusing L.A. group The Sa-Ra Creative Partners alongside Om’Mas Keith and Shafiq Husayn, Arnold co-produced three tracks on To Pimp a Butterfly, including “u,” “Momma” and “For Sale? (Interlude)”

“He’s ill man,” he told HipHopDX in 2015 of his work with Kendrick. “He directs people. He writes his own material to a whole other level. He writes your material. He’s like, ‘Can you say these parts?’ He’s good to work in the studio. I was very impressed with his acumen and his skill set.”
