Like music and fashion it was inevitable that the two Xs would eventually meet. We watched both Astro and Marcus Canty weekly as they performed among some of the nation's best vocal and lyrical talent. Although all they had to do was focus on their talents as celebrity stylist June Ambrose dressed them to the nine each week, it's always refreshing to see what celebrities' personal style is away from the cameras.
The X-Stylez blog caught up with both Astro and Marcus Canty at the Epic Records Pre-BET Award industry party and at the actual award show to discuss men's fashion, the projects they've been working on post X-Factor and of course what they were wearing.
Since the release of the rappers "Loser" mixtape, Astro not only has been working hard in the studio but also designing pieces on his clothing line entitled "Loser", which is in the works to be released. YOU HEARD IT HERE 1ST! Take a look at some of the pieces of his brand as well as other elements of his personal style.

Outside of shopping on some pretty dope threads, ladies man Marcus Canty has also been in the studio working on his album. He says it's for everyone to listen to especially for the ladies. Although his personal style can be viewed as flashy, Marcus says he's just doing him. He enjoys trendy statement pieces and just stuff everyone doesn't have. EXCLUSIVE is the word that comes to mind. Check out Marcus' ensemble below.
