Playboi Carti Interview with i-D Magazine

by @Djordje

There’s something pertinent about the way that, on the day Tupac Shakur drew his last breath in a Las Vegas hospital room, some 2000 miles away Jordan Terrell Carter was born. Born in Atlanta, Georgia, on September 13. 1996, to compare the two is not to say that Carter – better known as the A$AP-fraternizing, “Magnolia”-hit-making Playboi Carti – is the best rapper in the world. No, Carti is, as the New York Times once noted, “more at ease with the performance of the role than with the actual act of rapping.” But, in the way that he draws in everything that floats around the genre in 2017 – the hedonism, the consumerism, the inevitable fashion hookups – and reduces it down to its most potent form, Carti epitomizes hip-hop right now, just as Shakur did its 90s golden age.

Just don’t dismiss him as only a rapper. When we meet in a London photography studio, Carti, doe-eyed and high cheekboned (his cheekbones are the only thing higher than him during this interview), is a walking contradiction. He’s the everyman artist out here to make money. The proud Atlantan who hopped on a bus to New York and never looked back. The kind of teenager who, he admits, could have, “been on some real ghetto shit,” but instead took a job at H&M. “I’ve never been the type to sit at home on my ass,” he states. He quit only when his local celebrity reached a point where he was being recognized folding tees. “I feel like I’m part of the new wave, the new sound, the new generation,” he says with unwavering conviction.

ASAP Twelvyy on Kyrie Irving, Michael Jackson’s Spirit and Spreading the Love

by @Djordje

Between dropping his long awaited debut album “12” to critical acclaim this summer and the continued success of ASAP Mob, ASAP Twelvyy is riding pretty high right now.

The rapper hopes to bring those good vibes to the Boston area when he and the rest of the ASAP crew perform at Tsongas Center in Lowell this weekend. ASAP Twelvyy tells Metro that he has a lot of love for Massachusetts and expects Saturday’s show “to be turnt.”

Aside from bringing the party to Bay State fans, the hip-hop star is excited to be back in town so he can bask in the glow of the region’s many championship-winning teams, namely the Celtics. ASAP Twelvyy is happy to see Kyrie Irving take his talents to Boston and thinks that the team will be exciting to watch this season.

“I know the whole Massachusetts area is on fire. You got Kyrie. It’s a rebirth right now,” he says. “I would love to see Kyrie and Gordon Hayward kill, and Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum. It’s going to be real exciting.”

A$AP Ferg Launches a New Line of Socially Conscious Streetwear

by @Djordje

Before A$AP Ferg had a platinum single, his mom dressed him for school. “I went to public school for junior high, and she’d make me wear a uniform, even though you weren’t required to wear one,” the 28-year-old rapper explains. “I’d bring sneakers in my backpack—I’d be wearing khakis and a white button-down with new Jordans.” Ferg, aka Darold D. Brown Ferguson, Jr., is currently revisiting his scholastic wardrobe due to Traplord x Uniform, a new collaboration between his clothing line and the sustainable, socially conscious label. Available online at Bloomingdale’s today, the limited-edition streetwear capsule is made up of 10 pieces, including a logo tee, hoodie, military shirt, camo jacket, and bucket hat. Full men’s and women’s collections will drop later this summer on Traplord’s and Uniform’s own sites; everything retails for under $200 and benefits children in need.

Founded by Chid Liberty in September 2016, Uniform is ethically produced in Africa, and for each item sold, a school uniform is produced and given to a local child. Earlier this month, Ferg had the opportunity to travel to Liberia with Liberty and meet the women who work in Uniform’s factories. He also spent time with the kids who would receive the new uniforms, as captured by photographer Daniel Arnold in the images above. “These uniforms are really how you decipher the kids in Africa,” Ferg says. “You see a lot of them in the streets because they can’t afford a uniform and therefore can’t go to school.” He adds that “providing them with free uniforms not only enables these kids to get an education, but I think it makes them happy and empowered—I’m a strong believer in dressing the way you want to be.”

There were kids who got up and rapped for Ferg, he recalls, and one girl who said she wanted to be a doctor. Everyone whom he met along the way was impressed with him and his career, but to his happy surprise, they were even more in awe of his mom and extended family, who came with him on the trip: “I was surprised to see how they really embraced them and appreciated the fact that my family supported me—they said, ‘He’s a star because of his family.’” He’s certainly making his family very proud, especially the woman who first taught him how to dress to impress (even when proper attire wasn’t actually required).
