He also touched on foreseeing the market becomes over saturated with “urban designers” which prompted him to shut down production in the United States. However, Kani remained hugely popular overseas. Kani later discussed his relationship with the Migos, and how the Atlanta based group helped him relaunch the Karl Kani brand, He even claimed the group only wore Karl Kani in their videos.
