Stussy x Yo! MTV Raps Slick Rick Sweatshirt
On August 6, 1988 Yo! MTV Raps debuted on MTV and changed the world. For all you out there that don't know about Yo! MTV Raps, it was a massive influence on introducing rap music to the masses. Rap was underground and wasn't publicised but once Yo! MTV Raps started to air on a saturday night on MTV with the latest rap artists rapping live on the show and creating music videos for the first time people went crazy for it. Before they knew it, Yo! MTV Raps was playing 2 hours a day and the style, the trends, the language of Rap began to influence popular culture and by the time the show left the air in 1995, the genre was no longer the best kept secret. Rap music has grown to being the biggest and most popular genre of music today, and a lot of this is due to Yo! MTV Raps.
Stussy has brought the rap legends back with this clothing collection featuring common artists to the show, including English born lyricist Slick Rick on this sweatshirt. You also get a free pack of special edition Yo! MTV Raps artist cards!
