jeffstaple is a New York City-based street wear legend. From his early days of running t-shirts in his free time to building his own iconic agency and globally renowned brand, few have helped drive the culture of street wear to the heights that jeff has over the years. Now, he's also producing and hosting his own podcast, the Business of HYPE on HYPEBEAST Radio.

Plus, hear how jeff conducts his interviews by preparing for how he anticipates his audience will feel about the questions and answers he'll exchange with his guests.
