Styling a Rap Artist

Need to style an up and coming rap artist (who’s on the verge of getting a record deal) for a photo shoot. Would like the style to represent a rap artists image. What can u recommend?”

  • Budget: $150

A rapper can look all ways these days - from custom-made suits like corporate powerhouse like P.Diddy, shirtless thug-style like 50 cent or cutting edge fashionista like Kanye West. I assume you want your rapper to look cool and current, rather than the cliche of blinging with chains and diamond teeth? I saw rapper Asher Roth in concert recently and he and his crew kept it cool and accessible, with bright t-shirts, caps and a casual attitude. Try this bright 'Obey' logo t, a cap with a message (I tried to find a Supreme cap but they are sold out everywhere!) and a bright hoodie from American Apparel. He's sure to stand out with all those colours behind him!”
