With Style and Fashion BEing such a force and a part of Hip-Hop Music, we asked Jacquees to talk to our readers about merging Hip-Hop and his style?
Jacquees says: “I’m a big Hip-Hop fan! I am an R&B singer but I can definitely mix it up and merge Hip-Hop into it. Im into Jordans heavy, I’m a huge Jordan fan. Lol It’s partly my momma fault I think. Lol. She brought me some Jordans when I was in the sixth grade. She got me the 8’s but I had also already had the 11’s and so I just got hooked from there. You can go into my closet and they are everywhere.”
