The Things I Carry: Sasha Go Hard

We always like to know what some of our favorite artists carry in their purses (and man-purses)—the essential items that they need for touring or subway rides, the Grammys or any other thing that they might be doing these days, which is why we’ve made it a regular column on the site.

Chicago rapper Sasha Go Hard traveled to New York last week to play a pair of shows. It was her first time in the city and first plane ride. She stopped by FADER offices just after disembarking, giving us a look at her weekend travel essentials: smiley-yellow wallet, squishy earplugs, takeout breakfast and fresh Timbs. The camera lens belongs to along-for-the-ride producer and cinematographer D. Gainz, who collaborated with Sasha on her recent single and video, "Tatted." Read more about D. Gainz' unique perspective on Chicago's rap scene in Felipe Delerme's FADER #81 cover feature, and stay tuned for our video interview with Sasha, coming tomorrow.
