Jaylip: Cavalier

Owning a brand is more than a job nowadays, it’s a lifestyle.  One of the opportunities afforded, should you be so lucky, is meeting/making relationships with artists, designers and other brands, both inside and outside of the realm of your specialty, that’s lifestyle.

A while back we met this cat Cavalier.  Boasting, “The best kept secret in rapp,” his style is personified in his rhymes as a Fashion Aficionado, teacher, shaman, chief and rapper.

He was kind enough to sit with us for another installment of JayLip, alongside a sleeping (rather passed out) Quelle Chris!  HAHAHA!  JayLip is an urban slant on the 10-questions interview format made famous by James Lipton on In the Actor’s Studio.  Our interview follows the same general rhythm, sort of a ping-pong line of questions spanning from love to hate and mortality.

For this installment we caught up with Fresh Daily in from NY working with one of our favorites Quelle Chris and Cavalier on their upcoming project Stone Horses.  You can download Fresh’s latest, Brooklyn Goodguys here.  Enjoy.

Had a chance to meet and break-bread with Fresh Daily & Cavalier.  We debated and discussed the current state of hip hop, fashion and the good’ol days over beers and trees (well, I didn’t fuck wit tha trees though).  We also spoke on how Hip Hop can be responsible for particular fashion trends like Grand Puba rappin’ about Tommy Hilfiger, Slick Rick’s Links & Kangols, B.I.G.’s Versace… and so on… Good Dudes, Good Shit.

They’re in from NY working with on of our favorites Quelle Chris working on their upcoming project Stone Horses.  You’ve been warned.  Hip Hop is not dead… your listening skills may be.
