The new Capitol Records signee has also launched a new “designer and culture label” named Contra-Paris which is inspired from his love for Paris. This is a joint venture with his longtime friend, producer Tricky Stewart. Here’s what he had to say on his Instagram:
Welcome to the Designer and Culture Label….. CONTRA-PARIS… Thank you to all who have made this possible. Before I have mentioned my adoration for Paris and also how our culture has impacted everything from Fashion to Jazz and now Modern Music. I have no wishes to build a Record Label, or pursue the old idea of what a record label is this Venture is all about Culture and everything that surrounds Music. Me and my Partner Tricky Stewart will do our best at showing you the world through the eyes Of the Young Black Dreamers. Love and Sophistication are two ideal parts of wanting to live “Fancy”. I feel if we can show it to you as it has been a blessing for us to have seen it with our eyes and heard it with our ears then we all may want for More of what life has to offer. We want to change how you feel about Life through music and Culture and also change what we see in Each other! Love.
