You might know Funkghost as the underground Tampa rapper who prefers to remain as mysterious as he does well-heeled.
Now you might know him for another reason entirely: The former Soundcheck Artist of the Day just made the Deal Divas' list of the 10 Best Dressed People in Tampa Bay. No surprise, given the man's penchant for fine threads, as outlined in his video for The Way I Rock My Clothes.
Funkghost calls his style "dirty but sophisticated."
“You might wear a button-up shirt with a corduroy blazer and some distressed jeans with a fresh Gucci belt and some Supra sneakers," he told Deal Diva Nicole Hutcheson.
But Even though Funkghost drops designer names like Oscar de la Renta and Salvatore Ferragamo in The Way I Rock My Clothes, he’s an equal opportunity shopper: True style is “when you can go out and put something together that’s not necessarily expensive but looks like a million bucks,” said Funkghost, who will be wearing suits from Express Men in his next video for the single Put It On Smash.
