New York, NY – Three years after Tyra Banks asked Dave East why wasn’t a male model, the Harlem-bred rapper took a stab at the gig. The Def Jam artist tried out modeling at the 2020 New York Fashion Week on Tuesday (February 11).

East hit the runway as part of a fashion show for designer Hakan Akkaya. The Wu-Tang: An American Saga star posted a couple of pictures from his modeling foray Instagram, eliciting some funny reactions to the boots he was wearing.

“Big Stepper @hakanakkaya (The Comments Bout The [boots emoji] Got Me [crying laughing emoji]),” he wrote in one caption.

While East’s photos gave a brief glimpse at his venture into modeling, Girls Talk Sports TV’s Khristina Williams captured a video of East’s stroll down the catwalk. The clip showed off his first runway walk, which he appeared to handle well.
