Sam Adams X Hedi Slimane

These are the first pictures taken by Hedi Slimane of young talent Sam Adams - a new musical artists whose style blends hip-hop, dubstep and electro. These shots were taken barely an hour after Slimane and Adams first met, in a Los Angeles barber-shop where Adams was having his hairstyle reworked (read: shorn) from curls to military crew-cut. Currently under the creative direction of Matthew Williams, Adams is currently working on his debut album, due for release in the summer of 2011 - this may be the first time we've featured him, but it's certainly not the last.
