With Hip Hop being the leading foundation of our brand, today Bellargo commemorates a few legendary moments in Hip Hop with an exclusive 3 Item Drop!
On September 13, 1994 The Notorious B.I.G. (aka Biggie Smalls) released his debut album “Ready To Die”. Even though his career was tragically cut short, the Notorious B.I.G.left a lasting impact on the culture, that still reigns supreme current day. To commemorate the album's 25th anniversary we went in the lab to cook up an exclusive, limited edition “Notorious” Unisex T-Shirt:
The celebration doesn’t stop there! Amazon Music decided to explore Biggie's origin story in the new mini-documentary The Birth of Biggie: 25 Years of Ready to Die.
The nearly nine-minute mini doc offers a retrospective via a series of interviews with those that worked with the late rapper along with archival tape from the man himself. Biographer Cheo Hodari Coker, album producers Easy Mo Bee and DJ Mister Cee and former SVP of Promotions for Arista/Bad Boy Rob Stone provide commentary. Archival audio and photos featuring Biggie are also included.
Also 23 year ago on this day, we lost one of the greatest rappers of all time: Tupac Shakur. Eerily, Tupac also died on a “Friday the 13th”.
A musician, an actor, and an activist, Tupac is one of the best selling artists of all time and changed music forever. Today Bellargo celebrates his life and honors the legend with the limited edition “All Eyez On Me” Unisex T-Shirt.
Spooky Hours: FRIDAY the 13th is TODAY and is deemed one of the most unluckiest days in the calendar – but we’re here to change the narrative!
Last but not least with inspiration from Fabolous & Jadakiss “Friday on Elm Street” album, we cooked up our final item: “Freddy vs. Jason” Unisex T-Shirt.
