A$AP Rocky revealed in an interview with HipHopWired that he has no plans to launch his own clothing line. In fact, Rocky has a strong disdain for hip hop-themed and rapper-owned clothing lines.
“I might collab with designers, but that sh*t corny,” he explained. “When rappers be doing that clothing line sh*t, that sh*t be corny, man. That’s a slow reality show. Ya know how reality shows wash n***as up? I feel that clothing line shit is just a slower reality show. That sh*t corny man…I’m not no fashion designer. Just ‘cause I got good taste don’t mean that I know how to create it. I feel that’s disrespectful. It’s just like record labels and sh*t. Just cause motherf**kers know Hip Hop doesn’t mean you know how to create it, motherf**ker.”
“I know brands well, [but] I’m not a fashion designer. It’s more to fashion than just fabrics and stencils. You gotta learn how to draw, you gotta know how colorways work and materials, it’s hard, man. Hood clothing lines, I refuse man. I refuse. I’m good on that.”
