People that know my wardrobe, they know I'm not one to splurge on too many things these days. Once in a blue moon I drop some cash on a T-Shirt, every leap year I buy a pair of jeans. But so far the best quality stuff I've bought comes right from the mind of a Melbourne man, Pete Homies
His jeans are next level, long lasting and a damn fine fit, while his tees have just enough "Fuck off" in them that you can just as easily slide in to work without getting fired or skate down the street.
For The Homies is exactly, what it says it is. Unfiltered and real. Live and direct from the street.
Here's what Mark Drew
of Making Ends & China Heights
has to say about his Tee print...
Testament to the Cassette Tape:
Growing up, album artwork and sleeve note shout-outs were the origin of a lot of my information. Being strictly into Hip-Hop, it was difficult to get news on the artists I was into. Rage would play the occasional filmclip late at night, and Smash Hits would have some small gossip about the Fresh Prince (and many, many interviews with KrisKross), but it was mostly dead ends. Plus also I didn't want to hear about kids my own age in backwards pants, I wanted to hear about guns, over beats!
Living pretty far from the source (and not being able to afford The Source), repeatedly reading the fine print of my cassettes, I pieced together the personal feelings of rappers, noted which god they were down with, which MC's they dissed, learned their mother's names and who's couch they slept on during production. Only getting a new album every few months at the most, there wasn't much else to siphon knowledge from. Each crack and fold on this graphic comes from the bottom of my schoolbag, and is a testament to the tape.
