Rapper Cazwell has set out to make America femme again through the release of his new single, “Loose Wrists,” off his forthcoming album, Snow Cone. The song's accompanying music video gives us an idea of what this might look like: lace shorts, pink Timberlands and plenty of male dancers in their skivvies.
His inspiration for the witty tune stems from his frustration with the Trump administration's stance on LGBTQ rights: "We have a president that wants to take us off the census and a Vice President that believes shock therapy will cure gayness," Cazwell says. "At the end of last year, I vowed to be as gay as possible with my music and videos. We have to be more visible than ever and I hope I inspire that."
In "Loose Wrists," Cazwell and his hot back-up dancers wear full pastel lace looks, which were designed in part by Hoza Rodriguez. The queer rapper posted an image on Instagram of the monochromatic looks and commenters instantly queried where they could find his lace shorts. "Hoza has even been contacted by girls buying shorts for their boyfriends," Cazwell says. "I’m not surprised. I could see Pharrell sporting lace on The Vice."
This isn’t Cazwell’s first venture into fashion. Last year, he collaborated with designer Geoffrey Mac to release his Ice Cream Truck underwear collection, which sold out in a month.
Cazwell's “Loose Wrists” is available on iTunes now. Watch the ultra-femme video, below.
