Wiz Khalifa Poses With Taylor Gang Crew in New York Times Style Magazine
Rapper Wiz Khalifa is known for his anthem 'Black and Yellow' but him and his "band" were in black and white for a fashion spread in Sunday's New York Times Style Magazine. The Pittsburgh, Pa. rhyme-spitter and his Taylor Gang Crew were among several artists profiled in a feature called 'Really Big Bands.'
Wizzy and his seven-man posse -- Will Dzombak, Julian Wimbush, Brandon Glova, Bill Paladino, Muhammad Abdulhafith, Scott Woods and Kevin Woods -- were all decked out in camouflage shorts and sweatpants by Alexander Wang and skateboard kicks by Emerica. Yes, the fellas were looking pretty fly for some rap guys.
The fashion spread boasts an array of national and indie bands who rocked this past summer's music festivals like Bonnaroo and the Giant Rock Fest including Florence + the Machine, Deerhunter, the Scissor Sisters and Jeff the Brotherhood.
Little fun fact: Wiz's crew was either named after the rapper's Taylor Allderdice High School or the kicks he wears (Chuck Taylor shoes to be specific). “Taylor Gang is the movement, it's the lifestyle,” Khalifa has said in the past. Makes that quite fitting for the style mag then, doesn't it?
