Los Angeles based Chicago bred budding rap mogul BandUpSick is one of the top independent rappers to watch in 2020. The incredibly gifted, multi-talented lyricist has honed a refreshing style that combines street tales with wisdom and food for thought. BandUpSick is a certified diamond in a music world filled with cubic zirconia artists. One of his unique selling propositions is his keen sense of fashion. “My music is the segway to my fashion. It explains the lifestyle that I am pursuing versus the lifestyle that I came from,” raves the rhyme slinger.
BandupSick is “sick with the drip.” He considers himself to be a dripologist. According to the rapper “the drip is a lifestyle. It’s not the clothes you wear. It’s the way you carry yourself and the way you empower others.” His favorite fashion district to go shopping is Rodeo Drive. As well, the rapper lived in Minnesota for many years. The energy and vibe of the North Star State has shaped his fashion tastes. Equally important, his best-loved clothing designer is Moncler. In fact, one of BandUpSick’s most prized clothing items is his Moncler coat.
Hip hop and fashion have always been inextricably linked especially as it relates to footwear. BandUpSicks top favorite footwear include Balenciaga, Christian Louboutin, and Nike. “In terms of future Hip Hop fashion trends I see people wearing more space retro styled gear along the lines of the ‘Jetsons’ or ‘Back to the Future,’ with heavy modifications and digital control,” states the rapper. Equally important, BandUpSick explores the futuristic theme with the release of his current critically acclaimed album entitled “Planet Wars ,” which is available on all streaming platforms.
