I Am Other presents Verbal (Video)
I have an unrequited love for Verbal. CEO of Ambush Design, member of M-Flo and Teriyaki Boyz, this dude is, in short, the shit! Watch as he tells in this interview with Hypebeast about his culture shock experience when moving to America in 1985 from Tokyo at a young age, pioneering the skate culture hip hop cross-over movement upon moving back to Tokyo in 1987, his thoughts on good music, as well as starting his jewelry line and having it organically grow from making wares for friends, to making ‘em for Kanye West. And that’s just the beginning. In juxtaposition to his quiet candor, Verbal’s pimp pad makes this video not only insightful into the life of an amazing artist, but a visual ice cream cone.
