ISLEY BROTHERS star RON ISLEY is set for controversy - by setting up his own fur label.

The THAT LADY legend has named his animal skin line MR BIGGS, after the Mafioso character he played in the video to R Kelly's 1995 album track DOWN Low.

Isley has teamed up with Detroit, Michigan, America furriers THE DITTRICH FURS to launch the line in February (04).

Isley enthuses, "We were always the fancy dressers. We were the first to wear bling-bling and stuff like that. We wore our mink coasts on our albums, chinchilla coats, jewellery and chains. We looked like Mr T.

"A majority of rapper are imitating us. You talk to all of them and they say they got it from us."
