Is a French luxury brand favored by rappers also ripping those rappers off?

Balenciaga has yet to comment on the apparent thievery. (Although it's unclear if they are actually selling the shirt -- it could have just been a runway piece.)
When he's not protecting his brand, Swizz is getting ready for the next leg of his 20th anniversary Ruff Ryders tour.
