Kanye’s Stylist Is a 19-Year-Old Yale Kid Named Cassius Clay

The IvyGate blog had this amusing bit of news a few weeks back, but now that the New York Post has reported on Mr. Clay, Vulture feels obligated to direct your attention in his direction. So: "'[Kanye] was e-mailing Cassius saying, "You are an inspiration to me. I inspire people like Rihanna and Beyoncé and you inspire me. I need you during this difficult time,"' says Alex Klein, a Yale junior who runs in the same circles as Clay." The two struck up their professional relationship after Kanye complimented Clay's slippers while at Barneys this summer. [NYP]
