Stress Magazine # 11 with one of the most important oral histories ever published by a hip hop mag. When it is said that “Brooklyn Took It”, among the many things that were taken were untold amounts of Lo (and Guess, Fila, etc.) creating a trend that went worldwide. Peace to AYAK Family, all the Lo Lives, 5MH, RFC, CMOBB, Dariens in the Chi, Newark Lo Styles, and everyone else who kept the Polo craze alive. Just like Puffy stole his whole shit from Ron G, corporate fashion watched every move these dudes made and unlocked the manuscript of marketing to “urban America.”
