When kids see shit on their feed, it is never nothing specific. While I'm sure they will go cop the new obey from zumiez because they saw a dope ass shirt they want.. It is more that they see sort of the whole streetwear aesthetic. It put shit that WE like in the minds of regular ass little niggas. Therefore making the children of the world want to start dressing like that. In turn it changed the whole market and made all brands want to look a certain way and produce certain clothes. Tumblr is what is making lame brands look like streetwear. It is what we should blame for "mall streetwear"
and that is some of the realest shit I ever wrote my nigga 4real

Tumblr didn't kill streetwear. The internet killed streetwear. Well, the internet killed the exclusivity of streetwear. Remember when you had to actually go down to SoHo to get Bape or hop over to Spring Street to hit up Union to find some exclusive Japanese brand that NOBODY in the United States was carrying. Remember walking up Prince Street and walking into Kid Robot and knowing you could find something that the kids who were clueless couldn't get at Urban Outfitters? I remember when Supreme NYC was the only Supreme, when you had to go to Stussy on Wooster to get good Stussy stuff and Head Porter luggage and accessories. When you wanted to step your game up you walked over to Nom De Guerre. I'm a NYC kid so that is MY experience so I can't speak for everybody but it was fun back then having to roam the city to search for something cool. Now kids si back with a MacBook and a credit card and yell "SWAG." No experience, no sense of adventure, no will to go out and search. Nobody gets to know their shop workers to find out when the next drop is. I mean as crazy as it was I loved almost getting killed on the Lower East Side trying to cop the Pigeon Dunks. Going over to Orchard and Ludlow to Triple Five Soul and Reed Space and Alife and Rivington. Now I just shake my head at all of the internet kids who sit home and wait for the UPS guy to bring them their swag. The only place they seem to explore is the mall running into Hollister, Zumiez, and Foot Locker. Me? I'd rather save up to at least go explore London, actually go to Colette in Paris, see the crazy shit in Tokyo. Get off of here sometimes and go see the world, you might even start to understand how to build and create your own swag. I understand I'm saying all of this on HYPEBEAST and I might even get hated on for it but its the internet and thats just the way it goes. I'd love to create my own place for people who sometimes want to get away from the Hype but who would actually drop by and listen? Well, it can't hurt to try and if even one person comes by to listen to what I have to say and feels like I feel then I've made a connection. Kids, have fun with it, grown folks, do better and hope one day those kids will grow up and "get it." Peace.
