So lowkey, it was my birthday this past Saturday. Yes folks, Camille’s Michael Jordan year has come to an end, time to make way for Kobe year. No lie, I respect the guy’s game but his sneakers will not be making an appearance in this girl’s closet anytime soon. I spent my special day outside on Whyte Ave with my girl Mae and decided to get a stud in my nose. It was spontaneous and oh-so worth it and yes, Mae held my hand like the motherly figure that she is (I owe you my 24 years of life). Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge fan of hip-hop from the 90’s, it was authentic, simple, and the culture at that time was lively. Being a 90’s child, my ears got exposed to A Tribe Called Quest, a hip hop group from the East Coast that were well known for adding a playful lyrical approach into their jazz-like instrumentals. It was nothing like I have ever heard before and my love for hip hop expanded after hearing I Left My Wallet In El Segundo and Can I Kick It? In June, streetwear brand Stüssy, recently celebrated their 35th anniversary and released a collection aimed to celebrate ATCQ’s legacy, plus showcase the group’s influence on hip-hop culture. I was lucky enough to snag a shirt showcasing Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, Jarobi White and Ali Shaheed Muhammad all perched on a brick wall while graphic print surrounds the iconic photo.
