Tuxedo: Funk and Formal Wear

Tuxedo’s Mayer Hawthorne & Jake One performing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

 

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.

Tuxedo’s Mayer Hawthorne & Jake One Play ‘Elegant Funk’ and Dress the Part No Matter What

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.

Give it a read, y’all.
