Back fresh off a two week hiatus…and I do mean FRESH in more than one way. We have a celebrity this week for UrStyle and he goes by the name of http://uristocrat.com/2010/06/franklin-gower-celebrates-launch-collection-bespoke-la/fg/… Mr. Finally Famous himself. He is a FRESH, FRESHman in the rap game. We spotted him at the Univeristy of Pennsylvania and knew he had to have the glow of the UrStyle spotlight. So comment and let us know what you think about BIG SEAN style. Always remember that URISTOCRAT is everywhere, we might see you on the street and decide to showcase you and “UrStyle.”
AlSesay (Uristocrat.com): Where are you from?
Big Sean: Im from Detroit…D-Town…That’s my shit!
Al: Do you think that Detroit influenced your style?
Big Sean: Hell yeah, I feel like the whole culture man. I come from the straight hood a lot of people wouldn’t be able to tell, cause I ain’t some super hood dude; I am more hood than people think. My parents and grandmother put me in private school trying to keep me out of the hood so much, but I was still in the hood though. But being able to see both sides of it being in a private school and coming to the hood to go home. It had a lot to do with my music too it made me a poet.
Al: How do you feel fashion influence your music?
Big Sean: Fashion man, it’s like one of my hobbies. I really like fresh shit, I would lie if I didn’t say I love that shit cause I do. I was really introduced to fashion by Kanye and people like Verbal, Don C, Ibn Jasper. All these fashion moguls really put me on and I fell in love with it. I don’t know what the fashion world holds for me, you might get something from me, maybe not.
Al: So do you plan on doing anything in the fashion game?
Big Sean: Maybe later, my main focus right nowis music. I may fuck with something since I’m fortunate enough to have friends like Pharell, Verbal, and Kanye.
Al: What do you think describes your style?
Big Sean: Umm…just mein every aspect. The one thing I don’t want people to do is judge me off one song they hear… Don’t judge me off of “Get You Some” or certain songs especially since a lot of those songs are old. My style is about whatever I am going through.
Al: What’s your process when deciding what to wear? Like do you start with your shoes and put your outfit together or….
Big Sean: It just all depends what I have or what shoes I have… I wanted to wear the Louis’ (Louis Vuitton x Kanye West Jasper) but I didn’t want to go that hard. Its really just about whatever I feel like wearing.
Al: What vintage item or item that you always wanted to get your hands would you try to get?
Big Sean: Right now, certain Jordans that are rare like if I could find the Ray Allen PE Air Jordan 8s, and other OG Jordans. I used to really want a Jesus piece and I finally got one.
Al: What are some of your favorite brands?
Big Sean: Billionaire Boys Club, Ice Cream, Bape (A Bathing Ape), Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Burn Rubber, Society, Bird Brain, also love TIZA, MCM, Phenomenon, SWAGGER, and you know what I really love my merchandise tees (though I look at them as more than that) my I AM FINALLY FAMOUS shirts.
Al: What’s the most fashion forward place you been to?
Big Sean: Japan, I been all up and through Harajuku, and Tokyo and that shit is amazing. If you are trying to do anything in fashion you need to go there and soak that culture in. It’s the greatest if you love fashion. London also.
Al: What would you suggest to someone who is trying to develop your own style?
Big Sean: Man do whatever makes you feel good…wear whatever makes you feel good…what’s inside of you…your style is just a extension of you…it reflects you as a person…where what you want to wear and don’t give a fuck what nobody say.
