READ: Vashtie’s Exclusive Interview with Complex Media

I had the pleasure of visiting the Complex offices in New York and sitting down with them for an exclusive interview. We talked about everything from my Puma collaborations, Violette New York, being a creative, and more. Below are a few pictures from the interview. Read the entire piece over at Complex.com and check out my West Indian Summer Playlist I curated on their Apple Music channel.

VIDEO: Stromae – “Papaoutai”

racine-carree

Paul Van Haver (born 12 March 1985), better known by his stage name Stromae, is a Belgian singer, rapper and songwriter. He is originally from Laeken, in Brussels. He has established himself in both the hip hop and electronic music genres. Stromae came to wide public attention with his song “Alors on danse”, which became a number one in several European countries.

I first started playing this song on my Snapchat and soon I got many messages from you guys asking who it was. This song is one of my favorites and I get to play it on my Apple Music Beats One Radio Slot (have you guys tuned in yet?).

OMG. Why did I look up him as a kid and these adorable images popped up! My ovaries are on flames right now.

vashtie_ram

I originally posted this in 2012 and FINALLY – and only 3 years later, I will be actually posting this. You guys ready? What do you want to see or know younger Vashtie?! Let me know…I’m posting before the end of September. SO you have time, but not like 3 years time…

Vashtie in high school. Doing god-knows-what.

And I’m working on a post that will bring to life just who I was as a Middle School kid and who I was as a High School kid, through my artwork, keepsakes and photos.

There is a lot to go through because I seemed to have saved everything and I can pretty much diagnose myself as an emotional hoarder.

I mean…why I saved every single letter and note I will never understand, but I managed to piece together every drama and climax of my younger life.

I know some of you have asked me from time to time to share these things, so it will be coming soon!

For now, I will leave you with this photo of me via highschool…

Highlights and Overplucked Brows (Dunkin’ Donuts on Lark Street).

No, I’m not hiding a teen pregnancy…I just always liked dressing like a dude.
