Q: In your words what is a "hypebeast"?
A: A Hypebeast is someone who buys something based off the fact that a lot of people are talking about or likes it, everyone is guilty of being a hypebeast, it doesn't just pertain to sneakers either. Another form of Hypebeasts to me, are people who cop every supposed shoe with a buzz just to do video reviews on them for views and adsense money, half the time they dont even like the shoe or plan on wearing them and they end up flipping them after the review.
Q: If you were stranded on a deserted island by yourself, and all you had was a styrofoam cup..what would you do with that cup other than use it to drink water?

Q: What's the best piece of advice you would give to a college student, based off of your experience?

Q: Why we never see pics of you?
A: Few Reasons, I've tagged, I still sticker bomb public property with my site stickers, I like my privacy, few of my friends who do shoe reviews regret showing their faces, because they constantly get stopped by people in the streets, I never did what I do for fame or super stardom and I've done some things that I'm not too fond of during my time of being nearly homeless for survival, that I'm not too fond of that could lead to possible incarceration, I've done 5 yrs of Probation and that sucks ass, promised myself I'd never go through that again.
