What You Need To Know About Rap-A-Lot Records Before You Show Up At The Supreme Store

Published

on

After launching their always selling out collection with The North Face last week, New York-based retailer Supreme is back with their weekly collab, but this time around, the collaborative collection pays tribute to one of the most prolific hip-hop record labels of all time. But before you show up at the store, here is a little reminder in case ‘Preme Fanatics question your legitimacy to cop this week capsule collection.


Rap-A-Lot Records was founded in 1987 by J. Prince in Houston, Texas. When most of hip hop was happening in New York, J. Prince brought attention to Houston with its unique Gangster Rap and Horrorcore music but not only he is the man responsible for introducing Drake to Lil Wayne Back in the days and who released the scary ‘courtesy call’ back in February  2015, a diss track in response to recent drama involving Young Money artist Drake with P.Diddy.

Based out of Houston, Rap-A-Lot Records has put Southern rap on the map in the eighties, with crews like The Geto Boys who was their first nationnal act & Devin The Dude, whom The New York Times called “a brilliant oddball with a spaced-out flow, establishing itself as one of the first indie rap labels to achieve mainstream success. Bun B, Turk & Z-ro are still signed to the label, but many legend such as Luniz, Big Mike, Scarface & more recently Trae the Truth & his ABN gang, have seen their career paved with the help of the iconic label.

Consisting of a wide array of designs, the Rap-a-Lot Records’ label logo will be featured throughout the collection on almost every Supreme garments, consisting of two varsity jackets, four graphic tees, hoodies and 5-panel caps. As well as the Geto Boys’ infamous album cover for their classic project, ‘We Can’t Be Stopped’, on the tee and hoodie segment.

The Supreme x Rap-A-Lot Records CC is scheduled for Thursday, April 16, at all Supreme flagship stores worldwide.

FTP Releases Official Lookbook Starring DMX

Published

FTP released the official lookbook for tomorrow’s drop.

Today marks the end of an extremely long period of wait for the underground fans of streetwear as the new rebellious mainstay release the official lookbook to its latest installment but only showcases a small fraction of what’s releasing.

After teasing us with fire pieces such as the black emblazoned basketball we tried to give our readers a first taste of the leaked items with the ‘Pirate Booklet‘. Despite the efforts, no one can compete with the genius of streetwear mister Zac.

After Fredo Santana and Ron Jeremy, the controversial brand decided to team up with American rapper, record producer, and actor DMX, whose love for Hip Hop, drug and anti-conformism is a great fit for the three-letter brand. While we will not be able to establish how long they have known each other, Zac has been scheming on making it happen since February at least when they apparently met at a Los Angeles nightclub and the famous rapper was wearing his tee.

the L.A. born and raised designer will surely draw a lot of attention with their politically incorrect slogan tees and designs since they are allowed to do pop up shop in regard of the riot the last one provoked.

One of the highlight of the release is the highly anticipated with Ironlak.

The new items will be available tomorrow December 9 at 13 pm PST on FTP’s official website.

When are the Supreme Box Logo releasing?

Rumors spread that the Box Logo will be releasing on Thursday, December 7, but for the story people have believed for years now that the Bogos were releasing on the second Thursday of December.

 

Thursday, December 8th 2016: Second Thursday of December

Thursday, December 10th 2015: Second Thursday of December

Thursday, December 11th 2014: Second Thursday of December 

Every year, Supreme gets abnormally quiet right before the release of their Box Logo hoodie and since last week they haven’t give any update on the following release, which might have let fans jumped to conclusion that it will be released this week. Moreover, the most trusted source when it comes to Supreme, Jaypreme has confirmed that the coveted piece was set to be released on Week 16 (December 7).

As far as we can prove it, the only time that the Supreme Box Logo released on the first Thursday of December was in 2012 and 13, which

Thursday, December 05th 2013: First Thursday of December 

Thursday, December 6th 2012: First Thursday of December

After searching a bit longer, we came to the conclusion that if it dropped this week it would mean that it isn’t a matter of days but of week since they are set to be released on Week 16 and last year they were also released on Week 16. However, it is that time of the year when the hype is real for Supreme  and Hype beasts around the world are out for blood.

Colorways available

And so, this year they are set to be released on the 14th of December. The high quality heavyweight cotton cross grain fleece will be available in 7 different colorways with the precious box logo patch in different colors.

Like any Thursday, and even more this week precisely, the product will sell out in a matter of seconds due to the hype that surrounds the piece and its rarity, so don’t waste your time going manually as there is only a thin chance for you to cop it. Go full ATC mode.

Good Luck and don’t forget to check out FTP latest release dropping this Saturday.
