“Gimme the microphone first, so I can bust like a bubble/Compton and Long Beach together, now you know you in trouble” (Snoop Dogg)

Did you read the title here above? It was 1992 when we first heard a rookie that goes by the name of Snoop Doggy Dogg dropping gangsta tales on a Dr. Dre masterpiece beat. To put it real simple: may an Italian dream? Yes he can! A lot of water passed under the bridge but Shadow, the man behind Classic, kept on dreaming and one day his dream became reality. After a few years of work in the design of a leading Italian streetwear brand, he put the first brick of the foundations of his own brand. Pushed by the love of golden era hip hop, when it came to transmit his feeling through his collection, he had no doubts: G-Funk was in his top 5. Here sitting on the heads of the cute Ely F and Susy B it’s the lethal combination of Compton and Long Beach, the West Coast meccas for any certified gangster. I can do nothing but go crazy for these pieces. A light cotton fabric perfect for the summer and a lot of care for details as usual are the rules that these caps go by. There is custom branding for the taping inside the crown and no external branding, to give it the look of a throwback cap. The under visor is green while the shape of it is short and squared. Needless to say that never like in these days, the font called Old English is in great demand and this contributes to put these snapbacks in your “want” list. Don’t worry anyway: it ain’t nothing but a G thang.
