This may be the only time Jay-Z is mentioned in the same breath as Scooter Libby, but the two are among Esquire’s Best Dressed Men in the World. The list also includes Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama (No.4) and Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade (No. 14).
Jay-Z, who was praised for his high-style/low-style combo, finished at No. 2, behind football player Tom Brady. Jigga was also awarded the lifetime achievement award for his peculiar style.
Hip-hop artists who have received similar fashion nods from Esquire in the past include: Pharrell Williams (he won the top spot two years ago) and the 2004 champion, Andre 3000.
