About Theophilus London:
Theophilus Musa London is a Trinidadian-born American rapper and singer from Brooklyn, New York City.
I can pull off anything; I have the height and the attitude. The only thing I can't wear is a leotard, but I can wear anything else.
I started performing music about the age of 16. I lived in Brooklyn, New York, and this thing called the Flatbush Fair comes once a year. That was my first time on stage.
Your voice is like a very serious instrument that you have to tame if you want to be an amazing singer - Marvin Gaye or Michael Jackson.
To me, my brand is luxury, it's art, it's women, it's raw, it's urban.
'Billie Jean' was a negative dance song, and that was one of the best dance songs ever.
I want to produce the best popular music I can.
If I walk into a store, I'm going to buy the best jacket or the best item in the store, hands down.
I like to keep a uniform - wear a blazer, try to keep the same colour pants; very tailored, very fitted but still edgy.
I want to wear something that's not perfectly matching; there has to be something unorthodox about it. I want to create this mystery.
I like to go to the airport looking stylish - you never know who you'll run into. Sometimes I have fans at the airports. I never want to be bummy looking.
Dressing up, for me, is looking like an idiot.
I wore my same look for six years. My hat and glasses - people recognize me now.
I connect to SpongeBob in a way; like, that's the homie. He can chill on the corner with me.
I like Jeremy Scott, and he has some really dope sneakers.
I believe your atmosphere and your surroundings create a mind state for you.
While my cousins were gang-banging, I was trying to learn what the Internet was about.
I focus a lot on my voice because I want it to be an instrument as well. I want my voice to add color.
I'm kind of brandless. I don't like big logos or whatever.
I own over ninety-five different hats and, over the years, have lost or given away 120 hats. You gain to lose... you lose to gain.
Believe in yourself and believe in magic.
