Josh Peas is a young entrepreneur. He manages the rising hip-hop star Casey Veggies and is an owner of the brand Peas & Carrots Intl. Peas and Carrots recently opened their flagship store in Los Angeles and I talked to Josh about growing up in LA, paving his own way in the music and fashion industry, and staying true to what makes his brand unique.

"We saw FUBU, we saw Rocawear, we saw all these urban brands come through and merge music and fashion the right way…A lot of people didn’t do that after them" - Josh Peas
