Style me fresh and fierce

Hip hop is a lifestyle, a movement, and multi faceted, multi dimensional exploration of expression. That said we need to pause and take note of the visual creativity also brought into the game, in this case, Ill Skillz styling

Stylists Nonhlanhla and Kaitlin of Tiger Lily came on board to make sure our boyz were in top form for the video shoot and photo shoot elements of the #SkillzThatPayTheBillz 24 hr Project

TigerLily’s inspiration was to capture the progress and growth of the urban legends Jimmy Flexx and Uno July. How their love for Hip Hop has moved with them through their journey from school boys to young creative intellects

Having sourced from main sponsors Head Honcho and Gallery on 4th (Nike) to getting stylists own accessories as well as gems from vintage space Seventies80’s the story of Illiterate Skill was told.

Nonhlanhla says todays project has been an amazing learning curve and an eye opener, in that it is possible for young creatives to share a space, making a mark in history and leaving a stamp on the art of being revolutionaries. The 24hr Project brought so many different kinds of people together, working hard towards and without hesitation on unchartered territory.
