Maverick Urban Rapper Example Dresses Up In Topman And Discusses his New Direction

Check out our luxe shoot with the urban rhyme-master Example, perhaps one of the most verbally astute urban lyricists of our time - coming from his early grime roots to take the pop world by storm in the last few years.

Taking him out of the comfort zone of his classic wardrobe staples, we dressed him in some smart Topman classics, perfect for the coming party season. In this part of the interview we find out about the release of his fourth album, Evolution of Man, what inspired the rapper’s new musical direction, and working with the likes of Graham Coxon and Benga.

Shot exclusively for Topman by the fast-rising favourite Elliott Morgan and styled by the ultra-cool Soki Mak, we think you'll agree that this is a man leading the pack with his style as much as his rhyme.

Evolution of Man is out now.
