Words by:

Zebra Katz has consistently proven himself to be one of the most divisive and interesting artists in hip-hop.

His ultra-fiery rap defies categorisation, bucks trends and seen him rise beyond boundaries. A true rebel in his own scene – it’s this outsider spirit that first drew us to work with the imposing, Herculean rapper.

For this shoot we took inspiration from the film Paris Is Burning, the ballroom culture that has informed Zebra Katz own personal aesthetic and contemporary street culture. The look is fierce, deep and most definitely sits outside the realm of normal.
