Last week I talked to funk duo Tuxedo about their music and how it impacts their style. A group with that name obviously has to come through looking clean when it’s showtime. And they do just that.
Singer Mayer Hawthorne and producer Jake One called me while they were riding to their NYC hotel in a cab. Convo topics:
- Jake running into Mobb Deep’s Prodigy—who’s never seen Jake dressed up—and his reaction.
- Whether they’ve even wanted to drop wearing tuxes when the show is outdoors and super hot.
- Those sexy-talk intro Mayer does on several Tuxedo II cuts.
