JM: How did you first get into fashion?
LG: Always loved getting fly and it kinda grew from there gradually.
JM: When did you decide to make the transition from fashion to music?
LG: I wanted to for a while, but was too busy running the whole brand myself. I finally got a distribution deal for the brand a few months ago and that let me get the free time to drop the music I been wanting to do.
JM: What artists inspired you to start making music?

On the clothing side, got a No Jumper collab dropping February, then after that me and Lil Skies are dropping a skateboard. Also, a Revenge collab and some other brazy shit.
JM: Where do you see yourself five years from now?
