Cali clothing brand Stüssy has teamed up with the Yo! MTV Raps franchise to celebrate 25 years since it’s creation in August of 1988.
Yo! MTV Raps revolutionised the way in which the world viewed rap artists forever. Until it left the air in 1995, the show helped to move hip-hop into the mainstream; showcasing the music, the style and the culture as a whole on an international platform.
Stüssy and the franchise are honouring the iconic TV show with this collab, forming a capsule collection of printed tees and hoodies which feature some of the notable artists that appeared on Yo! MTV Raps – Public Enemy, Eric B. and Rakim, De La Soul, Slick Rick, Brand Nubian, Gang Starr, Digital Underground, Queen Latifah, MC Lyte and Ice T. With a line-up like that it’s hard to resist the urge to cop the whole set!In conjunction with the release on the collection, Stüssy hooked up with the likes of former host Ed Lover, former Def Jam publicist Bill Adler, DJ Premier, Questlove and many other reputable faces in the world of hip-hop to produce a two-part documentary showcasing the amazing history of Yo! MTV Raps.
