Walk Like a Champion 

Have I ever told you how much I like Dancehall? Also, have I ever talked about how much I like 90’s NYC hip-hop? I have? Oh well—‘cause here we go again. This sweatshirt is made of vintage Champion sweatshirts, which is dope because Champion sweatshirts were a staple of early 90’s NYC hip-hop. Can you think of anything more rugged than a thick bubble vest over a champion hoodie, with some massive jeans and tall Timbs? So gully. Also, the word, “champion” makes me think of Buju Banton’s hit, “Walk Like a Champion,” which came out in ’95, so right at the tail end of the rugged NYC hip-hop days and at the dawn of the Jiggy (or Bling) era. It also represented a wave of Dancehall that hit in the US and was distinct in that it was more rap influenced than the earlier sounds by acts such as Chaka Demus and Pliers, but more grounded and soulful than Sean Paul and Dancehall of the late 90’s and early 2000’s. Anyway, this sweatshirt is fire.
