These days artists don’t want to be monotonous, specifically people in hip-hop. You have noticed that rappers these days avoid being under one single umbrella. A decade ago, you would not be able to even imagine a rapper being on a runway. Of course, there have been fashion collaborations with artists since forever, but not this level. This is what Brooklyn native Cezur represents. He has been featured in Vogue and makes impressive music. He’s an assured and calculated personality with huge hopes for what the future holds. Read his interview and listen to his new song below.
How do you feel about being in fashion and music?
Cezur: I got a love for fashion and music I feel like they are one in the same. In this day and age, they’re tied at the hip. I think it’s important to have your hand in more than one pot.
You’ve been featured in Vogue Magazine recently.
Yes, this year alone I’ve been featured in Vogue twice. I’ve worked with Dolce & Gabbana, I worked with a ton of people it’s awesome.

Are you interested in making your own clothes?
I work with 58th and Fair which is a production company. We started as a printing company which dealt with making other people’s clothes, but it also enabled us to make our own.
When did you start making music?
I started with poetry. My English teacher was always like “you should do something with your writing. I didn’t start making music seriously until my house burnt down a few years ago. It was one of those things that needed to happen as it helped me bounce back from a bad time.
How important is artistic versatility for you?
I definitely want to keep up the versatility. I definitely want to get better. I think if you have it you should use it.
Are you currently working on a project?
I’m taking my time. I want my fans and followers to get to know who I am. Even though I’m actually both-sided with that because a project could give people that insight.
Do you pay attention to the Brooklyn scene or only focus on what’s happening on the internet.
It’s a healthy balance of both. I’m looking on the internet and seeing what is bubbling up, but at the same time, I think it’s important to be physical and be at certain events. The internet can only take you so far. I try not to be on the internet too much because that’s a whole other world.
