Hip Hop has more history than your average Hall of Fame. That’s why we decided to get busy and create a t-shirt design in honor of rap’s greatest eras. Here’s an exclusive preview of our upcoming “Evolution of a Rapper Tee” (K1X spring/summer collection; drops mid February) in seven steps. Today, we bring you part 2 featuring the late 80s’ original east coast flavor. Stay tuned …

Check some of our favorite clips from the late 80s as well as other color ways of the tee after the jump!
