STYLE DON-GRAND PUBA


This is one of those cats that I got me inspired to take the clothing game seriously...this dude single handedly put Tommy Hilfiger and Girbaud on the map merely by mentioning it in a song and wearing the clothes in the video. Today, rap catz wouldn't even consider doing that without getting paid for it...and not only did he wear the clothes, Puba rocked it right!

STYLE DONS-is a section of this blog where we recognize people that changed the game of fashion or basically know just how to SPLASH on cats! (ll) I'll be adding these from time to time.

Peace, Puba was waaaaay ahead of his time.

He would have made a killing if he came out with a clothing line.

Puba was a style icon before his time. Before Kanye, he was the original "fly backpacker". He rocked Lo, Tommy, and consistently crushed.

Dittos, Vee and Shakespeare....I think that the only thing he got from Tommy Hilfiger was a wardrobe for 1 season...No Check-meanwhile TH went on to become a multi-BILLION dollar company...NO one was wearin' Tommy until Puba brought it to the forefront.

Puba single handily put that dude on the map. I actually once spoke to Alamo about that. He told me they would get garbage bags full of gear, and Puba would splurge crazy in the Lo mansion

Say word!....when I go to video, I wanna interview the New Rochelle cats...even though cats no longer rock Tommy, Puba put dude on the map and should be gettin' a check, 'cause you know, WE determine whats fresh, and then the world follows.
