Nov '11
The latest in it's series of hip hop collaborations 8&9 Clothing teams up with Statik Selektah to design the Population Control t shirt. Commemorating Statik's 4th CD Population Control the limited edition tee is available in stores and in 8&9's Online Shop.

8&9 Clothing is a Miami based Streetwear Company known for gritty imagery and sharp messages. Statik Selektah is one of hip hop's most respected producers/dj's/host's known for his ode to 90's hip hop signature sound and collaborations with rap's greatest MC's. When like minds combine streetwear and hip hop heads get classic greatness like this Population Control T Shirt.

The chest graphic is a fuzzy image of modern riot police displayed on an old television screen. The 8&9 logo is printed on the left sleeve and the #PopulationControl logo on the right. Asked about the collab 8&9 owner Ray Guilbault said "Statik's dope, working with him was over due.

This shirt is our take on his title, classic and future population control. The television as a symbol of American programming and Riot Squads seem to be emerging as the more flagrant future of population control." Considering the recent Occupy Movement's and 2012's approach this Population Control t shirt will be relevant for a while.

Statik Selektah's Population Control album is available on iTunes. Featuring 20-tracks produced entirely by Statik, the album has an all-star cast featuring original songs by Mac Miller, Big K.R.I.T., Talib Kweli, Bun B, Chris Webby, Pill, Dom Kennedy, LeCrae, Joell Ortiz, Freddie Gibbs, Brother Ali, Sean Price, Styles P, Colin Munroe & more. Statik Selektah said it best, “This (album) is my way of saying who is legit from the new generation and I added a few of the OGs that still care about our music.”
