Future in Saint Laurent, Gucci Mane in Thom Browne
A$AP Rocky in C.E , Drake in Rick Owens
Kanye West in Damir Doma, Lil’B in Undercover & Dirty ass vans
Rap and fashion are increasingly interlinked to the point where it seems every other rap verse namedrops at least 2 designer names. I collaborated with English illustrator Rebel Youth on these sketches of various rappers in various gear from current SS14 and FW14 collections. Time will tell if any of these outfits will come to fruition in the real life but hope you find the idea of Guwop in TB or Lil’B wearing Undercover as amusing as we did.
The upcoming 10th anniversary issue of V-MAN includes an editorial titled ‘Hip-Hop Oligarchs.’ The feature styled by Maryam Malakpour and shot by Carlos Serrao features Wiz Khalifa , A$AP Rocky, Big Boi and Future in an array of high fashion items including Givenchy and SLP. The above video channels grainy 1990s VCR footage and is a behind the scenes look at what transpired during the shoot.
Coming off the release of Cruel Summer it seems that the G.O.O.D. Music family is still on their grind heavily. Future joins Pusha T on the hook of this Kanye West produced banger. The punchy dystopian beat compliments one of Pusha’s better lyrical performances of 2012. Well worth a listen above on soundcloud or streamed directly from Kanye West’s website.
