STUSSY X STONES THROW: reincarnation of dilla

“Remarkably, it’s been almost four years since former Slum Village producer J Dilla passed away. To mark the occasion, streetwear company Stussy and underground music label Stones Throw Records are teaming up to release this limited-edition black-and-white T-shirt devoted to the memory of Dilla. The photo (by photographer Raph Rashid) comes from the 2005 book, Behind The Beat: Hip-Hop Home Studios and was taken in the producer’s dining room-turned studio in his Los Angeles home. It’s also licensed through the J Dilla Estate so this thing is guaranteed to be official. Check for over here on February 13.” — VIBE MAGAZINE
