As a young child growing up in the hood (ghetto), reflect on what you saw right outside your door, most of us will have the same answers. Drugs, death, prostitution, gang violence, and single parent households are all some of us knew, and for most of us, its all we will ever know. Getting stuck in the “dysfunctional cycle” is very easy to do, because you get use to “hustling” to survive. By the time you realize that there is something bigger out there, your already preparing for retirement, and what memories have you created to reflect on?(None) Being Products of the Ghetto, is not a tragedy its a badge of honor, it shows that we not only survived but succeeded, so now its up to us to help the next generation do the same. That “Crab in the Bucket” mentality has no place in our organization, if we work together to work independently, we can all thrive!
Not all stories have the same beginning, middle, or end, but that’s what makes each story unique. Our Unique Brand Apparel represent the the struggles of the ghetto, for every black and brown child in the world. It was created to open the minds of young children. We want them to understand that not everyone has to walk in the same line, at the same time. So sometimes you have to take a chance and choose your own path, to allow others to see your greatness!
