The creative geniuses over at Uniqlo have already given us some really cute clothes (and a case of hair envy!) to look forward to for spring 2013, but the Japanese retailer isn't finished quite yet. It's serving up another helping of style, this time starring the one and only Danny Brown. The rapper and former Mark McNairy model is part of the brand's UT TruckShop, a seasonal promotion that takes Uniqlo's rad new UT tees on the road... literally. Danny will join fellow faces like Miss Info and Curtis Kulig at pop-up events, performances and t-shirt stores around New York City this April. Before all THAT kicks off (his performance is this weekend!), check out Danny's new campaign video. His is the first of Uniqlo's "Life in a Minute" clips, which give us an intimate peek inside each artist's life in a mere 60 seconds. Watch it below, and find out more about the campaign here!

If it was the pop culture trivia (and Kat Graham’s amazing tropical dress) that first hooked us onto MTV2’s new series Hip Hop Squares, then Miss Info is here to officially reel us in. The New York-based radio personality is the special guest on the second episode of the show, showing off her rad personal style alongside fellow stars Fat Joe and DJ Khaled. In the sneak peek of tonight’s clip, the Hot 97 host wears a neon red-orange sleeveless blouse with black skinny jeans. Simple, right? Wrong. It might seem like a basic outfit, but look closely and you’ll see that all the eye-popping awesomeness is in the details, like the tiny studs on the shirt collar, her heart-shaped pendants, and her soft smoky eye. "I'm wearing a Zara shirt," Minya told MTV Style, "I've figured out the science of how not to look like a bloated, moon-faced zombie on TV. Wear garish reds, oranges, golds and pinks. Sometimes all at once but always in a structured top." She elaborates on the "structured" bit, adding, "Never go for strappy tank tops because that makes top-heavy gals look like porkers. And semi-'professional' *wink wink* And finally, always opt for a V-neck. It's the key to letting 'the girls' in on the action. They want to be involved and just want to help." LOLZ. Luh her.
