Yasiin Bey Says Michael Jackson's Death Had An Impact On His Style Evolution

In the same GQ interview where Yasiin Bey talks about why he changed his name, his involvement with the brand Ale et Ange, and his ever-evolving style, he says Michael Jackson's death had an impact on his new look.

On his style:

"When my paternal grandfather passed a few years back, I started to wear a shirt and tie every day, like he did. Michael Jackson's death had a big impact on me, too. Right before the Ecstatic tour in 2009, I began wearing loafers and high-waisted pants. And that's where my look started."

Check out what else he had to say about his ever-evolving style here.
