ATLANTA, Georgia — Next Weekend Apparel, an Atlanta streetwear brand known for their luxury t-shirts and crewnecks, unveils “Class of 1988”; a limited edition collection of iconic Hip Hop images that made an impact on the sub-culture that year.
1988 began the “Golden Age” of Hip Hop. Entrenched in the minds of many, artists such as Big Daddy Kane, Rakim, KRS-1 and more were known as the new wave and quickly influenced teens around the world.
“From breakdance, beat boxing to fashion, Hip Hop developed an entire subculture that voiced the political, social, and cultural struggles of black people” said Middleman Fresh, designer of Next Weekend Apparel. “1988 was also a pivotal year for me…it was the year I graduated from high school and transitioned to the real world. Hip Hop influenced many of my decisions early on…therefore I felt it was my duty to introduce some of the artists who impacted my life to today’s generation.”
