The global online retail store SSENSE has quickly become the destination to find highly coveted threads. As the purveyors of high end streetwear, the site draws a variety of musicians looking to update their wardrobe and casually drop names of independent designers. With the bravado of rappers like A$AP Rocky and Kanye West, the world of fashion and hip-hop are more connected today more than ever.
SSENSE recently tapped the Brooklyn rapper Joey Bada$$ for a new interview and most of the pieces from his photoshoot can be bought from their store. Not a new concept for online retailers, but one that isn’t utilized as often. The co-founder of the hip-hop collective Pro Era shares some insightful knowledge from his creative mind. Such as what brands and styles we should know about, speaking at NYU and Harvard, and more importantly the fact that his sophomore album will not be released this year. Bada$$ had many more things to say so read the rest of the Q&A here and see the rest of the style looks below.
