The rap game isn't only about bars and beats.
The right look can also boost your sales and spins.
In a meme that's been circulating the web, Gunna says his fashion-forward look comes solely from the mind of Gunna and believes those who use a stylist to pick out their outfits are no better than rappers who use ghostwriters.
Complicating matters is Gunna does seem to work with a stylist. At least according to a GQ feature on him earlier this year.
Gunna works with a stylist, Bobby Williams, but it’s clear that the real style guru behind Gunna is...Gunna. “I just kind of like, put stuff together. I don’t really try to make it seem like a ‘look,’” he said. I asked him how he knows whether something is working. “You don’t know,” he said. “You just gotta have the confidence to know it is. Everybody not gonna like what I wear, but a majority of people are. Everybody’s not gonna understand what I wear because they don’t shop where I shop.”
So it's possible that meme is BS and Gunna never said that. Either way, it's an interesting debate. Are stylists like ghostwriters?
