During a recent interview with HipHopWired, rapper A$AP Rocky discussed his hatred for rapper-owned clothing lines.
A$AP Rocky noted, “I might collab with designers, but that shit corny. When rappers be doing that clothing line shit, that shit be corny man. That’s a slow reality show. Ya know how reality shows wash niggas up? I feel that clothing line shit is just a slower reality show. That shit corny man…I’m not no fashion designer. Just ‘cause I got good taste don’t mean that I know how to create it. I feel that’s disrespectful. It’s just like record labels and shit. Just cause motherfuckers know Hip Hop doesn’t mean you know how to create it, motherfucker.”
He continued, “I know brands well, [but] I’m not a fashion designer. It’s more to fashion than just fabrics and stencils. You gotta learn how to draw, you gotta know how colorways work and materials, it’s hard, man. Hood clothing lines, I refuse man. I refuse. I’m good on that.”
