On Wednesday, a statement by Too Black Guy's founder Adrian Aitcheson was forwarded to Complex. "The photo in question was not from a Too Black Guy's photoshoot, but it featured clothing from the JIM CROW COUTURE / HOUSE OF CROW collection by Too Black Guys, released in 2008," said Aitcheson.
He continued, "The Collection" I have shown some graphics that highlighted the painful and dangerous time of the Jim Crow era. Too Black Guys has a story that depicts the black experience in an unreflective way, "he said," even though this was not a picture of one of our photo shoots. The feeling that Drake, a longtime friend of the brand, is the hypocrisy of Jim Crow A brilliantly illustrated era The intricacies of Drake, a young black man who mimics how white men imitate and dehumanize black people, may be lost in a rap battle, but we should not be distracted by the issues that still affect our communities ,
Let's see if Drake goes beyond the IG and drops a "Duppy Freestyle" succession days.
