Product Description


'Looks at the early days of urban fashion through the lens of the pioneering group of artists. By adapting their graffiti skills from spraying trains to shirts they created a new look for a new and vibrant generation. At the same time they were laying down the ground work for the hugely successful streetwear industry today.' Sabotage Times

'The Shirt Kings' whimsical custom-made T-shirts were snapped up by just about every early hip hopper you'd care to name.' Red Bull Music Academy

'In a genius move founder Edwin PHADE Scasa and his crew transported the iconic graffiti from New York's subways onto sweats and tees that had the likes of LL Cool J, Slick Rick, Big Daddy Kane and Iron Mike placing their orders. This dope document provides a well timed reminder of the vibe around hip-hop's golden era when things were more Wil E. Coyote than Will.i.a.m.' Proper Mag

'From DJ Red Alert to LL Cool J to Big Daddy Kane to Mike Tyson they all had to have their Shirt Kings designs. Shirt Kings Pioneers Of Hip Hop Fashion chronicles the art, the styles, and the people who where loyal supporters of the Shirt Kings.' --The Source

This captures the early days of Hip-Hop--the raw, vibrant and upbeat attitude. The huge pictures and well chosen quotes tell a story of early hip-hop fashion and the days when creativity was first, industry second.
