Two @ShirtNYC Interviews w/ AllPureMusic & WorkingEstate

Four questions via WorkingEstate.

What is your creative process from idea to finished product? 

Ahh that depends. Ideas are all around. Sometimes they don’t come for days, and I live and wait for them. Sometimes they attack me and I rush to write it all down, and I can’t write it fast enough. The oven is set to this very loud timer, and when it goes off I just walk over and bring them out.

Ron Finley For Becks 2014 (Artist Labels)

If you can believe it, I caught this before watching a Youtube video. It was a 3 minute ad I watched till the end then googled about. How crazy is that?

PaperMag Presents "Meet The Original Gangsters"

This is great. Quick interviews with 37 of the world's illest.

Squeezing all 37 of these artists, visionaries, icons and iconoclasts into our September 30th anniversary issue was about the best birthday present we can imagine. (Shooting everywhere from Wyoming to Tokyo was a sweet party favor.) But as Patti Smith suggests in this feature, this is no exhaustive list. OGs are everywhere: some have already changed the world, some are building toward their moment and some are reading this magazine right now. So to the OGs featured here, and to all fierce, fabulous trailblazers out there, this one's for you.

New Apple "Perspective" Commercial

My bad, I think Jobs would've liked this.

Including the copy because I like it so much:

Here's to those who have always seen things differently. The ones who follow a vision, not a path. Where others perceive first as valuable, you value the first thing that actually matters. While others are distracted by the new, you focus on the significance of a whole new take. Even before you could see how to change things, you never doubted we would. And we did. Together. Again and again. Relentless optimism is what moves the world forward. So keep seeing things differently. Keep trusting there's always another way. A better way. A bigger way. One that lifts up humanity. Breaks down our barriers. And heals the landscape. You are the difference between the world as it was and the better place it will become. And different is the one thing about us that will always be the same.

GQ's Inside Story Of Bad Boy Records

This is great. Bad Boy forever.

Jadakiss (rapper, the Lox): Getting on Bad Boy was like being the top pick in the draft, going to play with the Bulls when Mike was there. It put the battery in our back.

Andre 3000 Interview w/ NY Times

Something like 2 weeks old at this point but great.

What’s your creative life been like since that era? It’s mostly been out of view. 

I write ideas, I write thoughts. Melodies come more for me than raps. I sit in my house and just play. I’ve been drawing and painting a lot more. I’ve always drawn costumes, things I was going to wear onstage. Seven and I hate folding clothes, so we’d always take all of our clean clothes and just put ’em on the table. One day, I was like, “Man, we living like college students.” I got so fed up with [the mess]. I drew it. [He pulls out iPhone and flips through some sketches.] I see me moving into a visual space.

Ralph Lauren Interview w/ Style

Jewel or two from the god himself.

RL: I’ve always done the style that I loved, so I didn’t mind sending an old pair of jeans down the runway. It’s about that style. It’s not Hedi Slimane. You know, I’m not all that familiar with his thing—I really don’t look. I certainly know who he is. But it’s funny how people will recognize what I do, and when I’m doing it they don’t get it, and then after, all of a sudden when other people start doing it, they get it. So I’m designing what I want. If it’s a man’s coat with a pair of skinny-leg jeans, I’ll do that. It’s whatever my mood is. But it’s about style, and it’s about an understated taste that’s cool.
