THIS IS WHY HE'S HAUTE: JAY-Z & ICONIX BUY ARTFUL DODGER



examples of artful dodgers' artful pieces. i can't say i'm a fan of the brand. but i love the designer's hustle. (all pics from e-tailer, www.karmaloop.com.)

new york--ever heard of scion, llc? maybe not. but you know the owner. shawn "jay-z" carter, has partnered up with iconix brand to create scion, llc a holding company. their first purchase together is the underground clothing line, artful dodger. the brand was started - and run - by designer, scott langton. langton will still stay on as creative designer of the brand. oh, and the purchase price? 15 million u.s. dollars. cash!

But don't get it twisted...from my understanding, Jay Z didn't put up one dime. Iconix balled out on this deal.
