Multi-platinum Def Jam recording artist/entrepreneur 2 Chainz celebrates black fashion, enlists popular menswear designer Miguel Wilson for his new sixth studio album, So Help Me God. On the track, “Southside Hov,” the “I’m Different” hitmaker honors the designer for his iconic contribution to the culture with the verse: “Got Riverdale in fingernails. I got the suit from Miguel, I know it fit me well. Lentil soup, I’m on my health kick. I’m ’bout to sell ‘Most Expensivest’ to Netflix.”
Miguel Wilson, a designer with showrooms in Atlanta, Miami and D.C., has dressed 2 Chainz for many special occasions including his wedding day which took place in 2018 at the Versace Mansion in Miami. He also dressed all of 2 Chainz’s groomsmen for the wedding which included fellow rapper Lil Wayne.
Wilson on working with 2 Chainz:
“I am so appreciative of 2 Chainz for giving this shoutout. So many rappers today talk about Gucci, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Versace, and Tom Ford, but no more mentions black designers. For 2 Chainz to actually write a verse about me, a black designer is actually groundbreaking and revolutionary. The fact that he has paid me for all the clothes I’ve ever made for him including, his wedding attire, says a lot about him. I think it speaks to his level of social consciousness, using his platform to promote black business. I pray this catches on with others.”
