WHAT’S YOUR DEFINITION OF STYLE?
To me style means everything. Style is an expression, it can reflect a person’s mood by how they dress & it can speak without speaking.
HOW DOES HIP HOP AND STYLE CROSS EACH OTHER IN YOUR WORLD?
Hip Hop is a style. The way we walk, talk, dress all reflect hip hop and style.
IF WE TOURED YOUR CLOSET, WHAT WOULD WE FIND?
A lot of sneakers lol! A lot of Snapback caps!
HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE CURRENT STATE OF STYLE IN HIP HOP?
Style in Hip Hop is always changing. I love where it’s at right now! I like my clothes fitted. Not tight, but fitted lol!
WERE YOU A STYLISH KID GROWING UP?
Yes. I was a big hat guy, even though I couldn’t wear my hat in school. As soon as the BEll rang, I pulled my hat out of my back pack. I own over 200 hats.
HAVE ANY OTHER ARTISTS (PAST OR PRESENT) INSPIRED YOUR STYLE?
Jay Z, Young Jeezy, Wale, Stalley
WHAT’S A STYLE IN HOP HOP YOU WOULD GET RID OF?
That’s a hard one. I’d have to say I’d like to see the long shirt-dress-type of shirts go out of style lol!
ARE THERE ANY PAST ERAS IN STYLE THAT YOU WOULD PRESENTLY BRING BACK TO HIP HOP?
I loved the high top and corn rows era! Think that needs to come back!
WHAT PROJECTS ARE YOU WORKING ON?
Some of everything! Radio, Clubs, Have my own online sneaker show “DEADSTOCK TV” & I’m a part of THE SNEAKER EXPERTS. I’m also always working in the high schools with the kids, so I’m looking forward to lots of that again this school year.
