Wig Mafia's Petey Pe$o on Old School/New School Urban Style

Page 3 of 4

So how did the whole Wig Mafia thing start? It started when we were this party crew and just went out a lot. Somebody had some wigs and we threw 'em on. And it just transformed us, like when you put a wig on and transform into somebody else. It was kind of fun. So we started bouncing from party to party and people started calling us "The Wigs." I was doing music before that and started incorporate 'em because people were sort of drawn to us wearing the wigs and wanted to be part of the party.

How would you describe Wig Mafia's fashion style? I would say old school urban with a mixture of new school.
