Yasiin Bey Meets GQ

blame it on Meka September 11, 2012

Gentlemen’s Quarterly profiled Mos Def in their style section, where he briefly touched upon a few things fashion…

…on his style: “I like drawing connections between pieces and patterns that would make someone else think,’Those two things would never go together.’ Well, to me they do.”

…on representing his hip-hop roots through fashion: “Hip-hop is the last true folk art. I got involved with Ale et Ange because it represents hip-hop in a way that isn’tpandering. It’s nice to see something that’s elegant, skillful, and raw.

…on what fashion advice he’d offer to others: “I don’t have advice for people on how to dress. People should dress based on what they find beautiful. My best advice: Keep your clothes clean.”
