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 Fail To Drop … Shopify Investigating BotNet Attack

Published

on

Few days ago, Zac to it to his IG and Twitter account to announce its soon-to-be released Brand new FTP capsule collection.

The extensive lookbook featured an extensive array of hoodie, sweater, Tees and more proudly worn by none other than our Chiraq Drillers G Herbo, formely known as Lil Herb and Lil Bibby.

However, not everything went as expected when they went live with the new release. Zac shared a message on IG which reads:

“As you may know, we had an issue earlier with our website. Due to the amount of traffic on the website the shopify servers crashed. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you. This has never happened before. Shopify is doing an internal investigation regarding the issue.

If you see a charge on your bank account and weren’t able to purchase anything, this is only a preauthorization and the money will be returned to your account.

We weren’t anticipating this problem, and are working to prevent it in the future . Thank you for your eontinued gupport.”

As of now, we can only suppose problem could have surfaced from a massive botnet attack on their marketplace through Shopify’s web servers, as the young CEO’s success would largely turn him into an easy target for jealous hackers and rivals.

By looking at his post on Twitter, we can clearly assume that the site was attacked by a large amount of bots since a platform like Shopify which has lately teamed up with Facebook to launch a shop add-on to the mighty social media. So it would be nonsense to think they can’t grant access to large numbers of visitors simultaneously.

We will keep you updated as the story unfold.
