SN: Jeremy Scott is definitely considered to be a “rebel” in his own industry, and like you said, you’re definitely repping his label – you’re wearing a pair of the Wings right now –
AR: – and the shirt!
SN: Haha yes, and the shirt. Do you feel some sort of synergy with Jeremy?
AR: Jeremy is just a good friend. I respect him a lot as an icon. He inspired me in so many different ways, man, and I can appreciate that. That’s my brother right there – shouts out to Jeremy all day, all f—in’ day.
SN: Another thing about Jeremy Scotts are that the shoes aren’t for everyone, nor were they meant to be. It’s not really a typical sneakerhead shoe, but now you have kids rocking ’em – especially the ones that came out to see you.
AR: Haha yes, and now, look what I did! Is it me to blame? Am I the culprit?
SN: You’re definitely part of the blame.
AR: Really? Just part of the blame? Who else is there to blame?
SN: In hip-hop, nobody else comes to mind, so I guess you’re the reason why a lot of hip-hop fans are into Jeremy Scotts now.
AR: Yeah man, look at that crowd in there. I want to check it out, but my peoples are saying it’s too dangerous.
