In 2008, a young Tristan Wilds was still riding high off the now cult classic TV series The Wire where he played the role of Michael Lee. He would become Dixon Wilson that same year on the Beverly Hills 90210 CW spinoff series 90210. Rocawear scooped up Tristan for their “I Will Not Lose” campaign that same year.

In the video below, he discusses coming up in Staten Island and having aspirations to act. Fast-forward five years, and we’re reacquainted with him as artist Mack Wilds, Salaam Remi’s signee with an album out called New York: A Love Story. What a differences a few years can make. Check out the video below and reminisce.
