Era: Streetwear 2Day
"I really love UNDRCRWN. I always loved what they did. This style of caricature was popular in the '80s; If you were a sports fan you know this. And then whatever incredibly talented artist they got to do hip-hop stars, hip-hop legends, and then take it a step further by doing a hip-hop legend dressed up as an athlete was just hilarious and the execution was spot-on.
"If you compare them, UNDRCRWN could be the more commercialized version of No Mas. It also had the street culture, jock-type fan, but it was a little more fun. I think that opened up their distribution wider than No Mas, which tends to be very heady and tongue-in-cheek. This one’s graphically very funny and a lot more people can get into it."
