Jump through to learn about Joey’s thoughts on rappers and their fashion.


In “Amethyst Rockstar,” you said, “When did rap turn into a fashion show,” what—

“Too many makeup artists won’t let their passion show.” [laughs]

What are your thoughts about fashion and music coming together the way they have?

Back then, I rapped that from a different perspective. My thoughts on fashion and music coming together—you see, there are two things. There’s fashion and then there’s style. Fashion recently started coming into hip-hop, but style has always been predominant in hip-hop. The context behind that line was me wondering when worrying about labels became forefront for a hip-hop artist. You know what I’m saying? That’s what the context behind that line was. Present day, I think it’s good to mix it in. But I wouldn’t consider myself fashionable. I’d consider myself stylish.
