I don’t own any Bapes, but I love the marketing behind it. 4 years back I got into a really good musical act out of Japan called M-Flo. For the longest time I didn’t even know what to compare it to here in the U.S., it’s not a gangster rap like 50 Cent, or pop rap like Will Smith, but all I know is that I really enjoyed their sound and visual approach. It’s what got me really interested in Japanese culture. With producers like Pharrell Williams and Kanye West popping up it’s obvious where M-Flo fits in.
M-Flo’s MC Verbal aka Johnny Astro, is part of the super group Teriyaki Boyz which is DJed by Nigo the creator of Bathing Ape. Working side by side with huge artists like Kanye, Pharrell, ADROCK, and Busta Rhymes.
Anyways, all this to say that the Teriyaki Boyz finally released a new single. There sound is so modern art, it’s like another piece of the puzzle. You wear the clothes you embody the music and you are whole. It’s an awesome concept.
