Busta Rhymes Takes A Walk With New Shoe Designs

Looks like Master P will get a little competition in the world of rapper-designed shoes, as Busta Rhymes has helped craft some footwear for GBX.

Rhymes previously delved into the fashion world through his Bushi line of clothes, on which he collaborated with designer Rasheed Booth. Bushi clothes are currently available via Busta's official Web site or by catalog order, and the line has already rolled out its Fall and Winter '99 collections.

The partnership with Busta and Bushi is not the first time GBX has enlisted the talent of a hip-hop artist. Last year, GBX tapped Redman to model its shoes in ads that appeared in such magazines as "The Source" and "XXL."

Busta Rhymes and GBX will officially unveil designs for the new shoes next week at a press conference in New York. The Bushi by GBX line of shoes is expected to arrive in stores this fall.
