When it comes to fashion and music, Jahlil Beats definitely knows the strong bond both elements play in today’s culture. That’s why VILLA is taking another step towards strengthening that relationship by collaborating with the Timberland brand and featuring, yet another, talented hip-hop artist.
Jahlil Beats is no stranger to the game of hip hop. His passion started at the age of 12, escaping him from the everyday pressures of his community in Chester, PA. Over the years, he was able to master his craft and impact his look through his love for streetwear. From his artistry to his choice of attire, Jahlil has a keen eye for design and is a phenomenal influence of what it means to stay fresh in the game. The ‘Sundown Brogue 6” Premium Boot’ was perfectly designed by Timberland to resemble the night time sky after hours and affirms the appeal that Jahlil looks for and rocks every day. So, rock the Sundown Brogue Boot and take a little bit of sunset with you.
We sat down with Jahlil Beats to talk about his influence in style and music:
VILLA: Can you describe how your style of production is connected to your personal fashion style.
Jahlil Beats: I’m from the streets, so that’s plays a huge influence on my music and style. I’m also a huge fan of street wear brands.
V: What do you like most about the VILLA Exclusive Sundown Timberland Brogue Boot?
JB: The thing I love the most about them is the wing tip design. It’s a crazy idea with a fresh design. Def a must cop!
V: You work with a lot of artists in the music industry that have their own personal sense of fashion. How important do you think fashion is to an artist’s career?
JB: It’s pretty much mandatory. Hip hop culture was mainly built off of fashion. If you want to be a part of this culture, you should stay fresh. Especially nowadays, most of these artists are getting by mainly because of their swagger.
V: Can you give us a little background of your relationship with VILLA?
JB: VILLA has always supported me and believed in my vision. I’m very happy and grateful for the partnership we have. VILLA has been rocking with me for years!
V: What can we look forward to in 2017 from Jahlil Beats?
JB: A ton of hits! Plus, my label Tandem Music Group is breaking new talent!
