wackies collab is dope. imo, its ok to buy the tee's even though you dont know anything about the artists. BUT if you do buy them, atleast do a little bit of research so when a random person asks you "who is that on your shirt?", you can give a short explanation and not look like a dumbass.
last time someone asked me what my shirt meant, and i said "i dunno. something to do with reggae? i just liked the picture of the lion in this color" i totally felt like a dumbass and wanted to kill myself.
what do you do in this situation?:
[some guy]: yo, what's the shirt mean?
[you]: ah, it's from the Wackies record label. Founded in the 1970s by Lloyd Barnes
, as the Wackie's House Of Music based on White Plains Road in New York
, the name Wackies also include a record shop and a studio
. It is considered by some to be the first significant reggae studio and label in the United States. (from wikipedia)
[some guy]: ooooooh shit! are there any good acts? what are some good songs to listen to?
