      Fashion Comes Natural To Trinidad James

      Fashion Comes Natural To Trinidad James

      Trinidad James is a walking fashion icon. In 2020, he released “All Gold Everything” which took over the rap game full force. The Atlanta native has since evolved tremendously, keeping a strong head on his shoulders and continuing to do what he loves most: create art.


      Trinidad isn’t here to talk about what he’s going to do, he just does it. Most recently, he released his brand new single “James Woo Woo,” his latest alter ego which cares for humanity as a whole. Additionally, he continues to kill it as a host on Complex’ Full Size Run, approaching the 6th season of the sneaker talk show.


      King Ice caught up with Trinidad at Soho House in West Hollywood, who was decked out from head to toe in style. 


       

      Can you talk about your love for fashion?

      It’s natural. Fashion for me is always something I have gravitated to easily. I don’t ever think that much into it. 


      How much jewelry you got on right now?

      I’m light today. I’m chillin’. Trust me, I’m chillin’.

      Big Havi: "I Could Take This $#!@ Off And Still Be The Same Me"

      Big Havi: "I Could Take This $#!@ Off And Still Be The Same Me"

      It’s not everyday you see a Presidential Rollie on someone’s wrist, especially if you’re a kid. But 20-year-old Big Havi proves it’s not only possible, but unimportant. When asked about his ice, the East Atlanta rapper makes it a point to take off all his jewelry: his Commission Records chain and glistening, all-diamond $100K watch to match.

      The message was clear: Havi would much rather have people see his inner soul, than the materialistic things that society fools us into praising. Aside from the success of his viral single “9 Times Out Of 10” (which received an explosive remix from Lil Baby), Havi recently released his debut EP titled Personal Problems. The 8-track project is a combination of the real and the turn up.


      King Ice caught up with Havi moments after he shut down the stage at The Novo in Los Angeles, opening for Lil Tjay.


      Can you talk about your drip real quick, I see you got on the ice.

      I don't like talking about drip. This is for myself. I'm not flashy.


      What is that?

      It's a Rolex. I got it a couple days ago. 


      Why don’t you like talking about your drip?

      Because it doesn't make me or break me. I could take this shit off and still be the same me. Matter of fact... [takes off jewelry]. For real. This is pointless. I want to talk about me. 


      Do you feel like you have to wear jewelry as an artist?

      No. I was actually going to take this off before I went on stage, but then I’m like “fuck it, I want to wear my shit.” But this ain’t everyday shit. I could throw this shit away and it won’t hurt me.

      Fireman Band$ Reveals His Jewelry Influences

      Fireman Band$ Reveals His Jewelry Influences

      Fireman Band$ is a walking fashion statement. The Brooklyn native proves you can make it through being yourself, without following any trends or conforming to any one type of artist. Growing up, he was always the bad kid in school. It was at age 18 when he was locked up behind bars he decided music was going to be his career. He jokes about how the artists he heard on the radio while incarcerated were trash. 


      King Ice caught up with Fireman to discuss his jewelry preferences, who hails multiple face piercings including the dermal and one in between his eyes like Lil Uzi Vert.

      Do you feel like you have to wear jewelry as an artist?

      No. Lil Wayne was one my first influences. He was the first person I seen as a rapper put jewelry on his face. He had the lip ring I believe. At that point, I thought “hmm let me try it.” I did it and I thought it was cool. Then I did the nose ring, but it didn’t have anything to do with rapping or nothing. 

       

      In your opinion, who had the most iconic hip-hop label chain?

      Definitely I would say Roc-A-Fella. They definitely had the iconic chains.

      Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

      In 10 years, a billionaire. Definitely mogul. A bunch of businesses. Just a walking bank, super successful.

      Savannah Cristina:" I just feel like my outfit is not complete without big hoops."

      Savannah Cristina:" I just feel like my outfit is not complete without big hoops."

      It’s not every day you see an R&B singer rise out of Broward County, Florida and Savannah Cristina is paving the way. The spoken word poet turned singer-songwriter went viral over her DIY videos, singing outside at a basketball court, the beach, in traffic… the list goes on.


       

      “Self Care” in particular is one that resonated with audiences, reminding yourself the importance in self-love and taking care of your body and mental health. The song’s visual currently hails over 3.8 million followers and counting.


      Savannah arrives at Soho Warehouse in a cute dress, with gold hoops that demanded her presence. King Ice caught up with the 22-year-old to discuss her love for jewelry and gold.


      Can you describe your style as it relates to jewelry? 

      I always like to have big hoops. Always! I just feel like my outfit is not complete without big hoops. I’ve tried dangly, I've tried studs, I can’t do it. I have to have some gold hoops. I always wear my rings and a nice cute little dangly chain. I love gold. My nose piercing is something I love. I got it when I was 16 at the Swap Meet. She literally pierced my nose with an ear gun, I leaned over the counter. Ever since then, I’ve been in love with my nose piercing.

      Do you only wear gold, you don’t wear silver? 

      Yes. 


      Do you feel like you have to wear jewelry as an artist? 

      My grandmother is West Indian, very traditional. She says “you always have to have earrings in your ear,” so jewelry is always cute. I never was the type to have real jewelry. I always had fake jewelry or what I could afford, but I always think it’s cute and classy. The pressure to rock a buss down or the pressure to rock a big ole heavy chain, sometimes it’s not ideal for every artist. Especially those of us who know they might not be in a safe place all the time. I’m not really pressed about it but to have a nice simple chain to wear every day, that’s real — just one, I’m happy.

      Swang Reveals His Favorite Jewelry Styles

      Swang Reveals His Favorite Jewelry Styles

      If you want to be an artist, you have to dress like an artist. For Swang, he keeps himself designed down from his wrist to his outfit all the way down to his cars. Hailing from Seattle, the “Lost It” recording artist plans to be the biggest Asian hip-hop artist to ever do it. With the support of his friends and manager, the possibilities are endless.


      When it comes to the music, he knows his time is coming. King Ice caught up with Swang to discuss his drip, his money, and more.


      Talk about your drip! Designer everything.

      Louis Vuitton glasses, Tom Andrews jacket, Gucci rings, and this is a 2019 Rolex. I like cars though, cars are my thing. I have a lot of cars. In 2018 I bought 7 brand new Porsches. But I traded them all in, now I’m stuck with a 2018 Porsche Panamera.

       

      Swang's 14k Gold and Plantinum Rolex, Paired With Silver Gucci Rings


      Where’s all this money coming from?

      Hard work and business. You gotta make money somehow. Just hustling, that’s basically it. My job is making music, that’s my career. I absolutely think I have the ability to do it.


      Do you feel like you have to wear jewelry as an artist? 

      No actually. Me as a person, I don't. I don't care about flexing. I'm not wearing this over here like “oh, I'ma flex on yo'”. That's not it. I have nice things because I like it, that's the difference. People spend money and buy all this stuff they probably don't even like. They wear it just to flex, but what's the point? I only buy it because I like it. I like nice things. I like to dress up. I like to have styles. I'm not trying to flex on nobody.
