Jean-Michel always had an unfiltered Camel cigarette between his fingers. He smoked so much that it was a part of his figure, much like his dreadlocks. He became more and more exotic, and his silhouette changed as he developed the "moose-head look" with those outrageous dreadlocks. Jean-Michel, who was always buying the latest technology, also started wearing a Sony Walkman with headphones and dangling wires running down the side of his head. It became a consistent part of his image. He rarely removed them, even to sleep. Before long, the younger artists and street hustlers began mimicking his characteristics and expressions.
