Jensen Karp

Jensen Karp’s bio will seem too ridiculously cool to be true, but stick with me for a second. So, he starts off as a rapper with EMI under the handle Hot Karl. Awesome, right? So then he goes into art, designing clothes for Clandestine Industries and opening up the rad-as-hell Gallery 1988. Oh, did I mention he wrote for the WWE while he was doing this? He also hosts a podcast in which he gets people on important things called Get Up On This. Buy his book “Kanye West Owes Me $300: And Other True Stories from a White Rapper Who Almost Made It Big” over at www.jensenkarp.com or wherever books are sold!
