DXclusives: The Outfit, TX & Fat Trel

HipHopDX caught up with Dallas rap trio The Outfit, TX for an exclusive interview while they were out in sunny Los Angeles, and they explained what keeps them in Dallas instead of venturing out.

“We talk about it all the time as so many people try to persuade us to leave, but we see the opportunity and we want our own scene and wave,” Mel says. “You ain’t going to see this anywhere else. 1,200 kids in an empty airplane hangar going crazy. It’s going all the way up. We travel and do shows all the time. We got the wave and other people are noticing. We don’t have any industry or infrastructure.”

MMG’s Fat Trel also reveals that he’ll be Hip Hop’s first plus-size model. On September 14, the Gleesh rapper will be modeling the latest collection from upscale big and tall fashion line Volare.

“I think it’s a good look as it’s my first time doing it,” said Trel. “I’ve never been a part of anything like this and I’m looking forward to it.”

He is slated to join Jamal “Gravy” Woolard and comedian/actor Faizon Love on the runway to showcase the latest designs from Volare founder Troy Adkins.
