YG on Story Behind His 4HUNNID Brand
With his musical career reaching new creative and commercial heights, YG is deciding to devote and invest his time, energy and money into another high-profile artistic venture: fashion. Specifically, YG has linked up with Gavin McNeill for the 4HUNNID brand.
Having already spent a few years building 4HUNNID and fine-tuning their approach to clothing, YG and Gavin McNeill are taking the lessons they have learned and steering their label in new, exciting directions. To find out what currently motivates them and what they have planned for the future, HYPEBEAST decided to join the 4HUNNID family as they presented their latest major seasonal offering.
“The brand is built on authenticity, pushing society and the fashion industry to respect the originality that comes from where we come from,” Gavin McNeill, 4HUNNID’s Creative Director, previously shared.
“I did it all when I was young: I skateboarded, involved in the gang cultures. I can show you a lot of old flicks of OG gangstas … the ones that was getting money,” YG tells HYPEBEAST, breaking down where he gets his inspiration from. “They had skinny jeans on, shirts tucked, belts, hard bottoms, boots. So, when I decided I wanted to turn up on some fashion shit, I was like … I wanna keep my shit Westside and G’d up.”
