STYLE HIGHLIGHTS: OUTKAST 

Beginning their reign in the early 90s, innovative hip hop duo OutKast used their distinct, funky perspective to break barriers in music, as well as in the fashion world. While the group’s relatable genesis helped them become popular, it was towards the new millennium that OutKast began to explore various unorthodox looks that often drew inspiration from their pimped out southern roots combined with prestige brand futuristic pieces. By the rappers’ height in the mid 2000′s, it was the norm to spot them at events or in music videos wearings all kinds of shades, headgear, furs, luxurious fabrics, gems, and props. Their fearlessness and dedication to looking their personal best certainly paved the way for other eccentric modern acts such as Kelis, Janelle Monae, and Young Thug. 

Toast to Big Boi and 3 Stacks for being the coolest motherfunkers on the planet.

BedStuy 101: For the Transplants, Transients, Gentrifiers & Gerrymanderers

Know thy neighborhood and jurisdiction:

Bedford-Stuyvesant is bordered by Flushing Avenue to the north (bordering Williamsburg); Classon Avenue to the west (bordering Clinton Hill); Broadway and Van Sinderen Avenue to the east (bordering Bushwick and East New York); and Atlantic Avenue to the south (bordering Crown Heights).[4] It is served by Postal Service zip codes 11205, 11206, 11216, 11221, 11233 and 11238.

There’s been a recent movement to end Bed-Stuy at Franklin Avenue. No need for the unnecessary gerrymandering - Bedstuy is too rich with history and culture to cheapen it’s boarders. So, if you are on Franklin and Dekalb ave, you are NOT in Clinton Hill, you are in Bed-Stuy!

If you don’t know, now you know…” - Notorious B.I.G.
