The new Homies line is out and it’s coming at you with the same attitude and references we’ve come to expect; featuring 6 tees this time, in the normal black and white variations.

You check out some of the range at Laced right now, otherwise you can grab the other tees from the series from the Homies website.

– t, to hear what inspired the new range, plus some lookbook shots that are pretty easy on the eyes

For The Homies is exactly, what it says it is. Unfiltered and real. Live and
direct from the street.

Bone, Thugs & Homies
Testament to the Cassette Tape

Growing up, album artwork and sleeve note shout-outs were the origin of a
lot of my information. Being strictly into Hip-Hop, it was difficult to get
news on the artists I was into. Rage would play the occasional filmclip late
at night, and Smash Hits would have some small gossip about the Fresh Prince
(and many, many interviews with KrisKross), but it was mostly dead ends.
Plus also I didn’t want to hear about kids my own age in backwards pants, I
wanted to hear about guns, over beats!

Living pretty far from the source (and not being able to afford The Source),
repeatedly reading the fine print of my cassettes, I pieced together the
personal feelings of rappers, noted which god they were down with, which
MC’s they dissed, learned their mother’s names and who’s couch they slept on
during production. Only getting a new album every few months at the most,
there wasn’t much else to siphon knowledge from. Each crack and fold on this
graphic comes from the bottom of my schoolbag, and is a testament to the
tape.
