“Your simple words just don’t move me: you’re minor, we’re major
You’re all up in the game and don’t deserve to be a player”
These words from Prodigy of Mobb Deep verse on “Shook Ones Pt II” resonate with me. Although the Prodigy passed away his words definitely live on. Prodigy was part of the legendary Queensbridge rap group and became someone that help to raise awareness of sickle cell anemia. I don’t think that there is one fan of hip hop that isn’t familiar with the quote “Word Up, Son Word” when it’s accompanied with the sound of a stove lighting. (The awesome part is that I found these words spray painted in graffiti above me.)
In the same way that hip hop was once considered an underground voice. The voice of the poor and disenfranchised “inner city” youth. The spirit of that rebellion is infectious. The same voice that has been displayed for plus size fashion. The fashion world especially has treated men of size as if we weren’t major. At all. But after a lot of advancements from the plus size women’s movement, the brawn, the big and tall men and plus men have a platform to advocate for us.
Boohoo has become one of those brands that made clothes for men of size. I love the colors and I love hoodies especially. I am sure that there are part of the uniform for all men of size. I love that even the pockets are huge enough to place my hands into. I can fit a cell phone and a whole bunch of other items.
The olive color is very different for me. One of my favorite colors are black, Boohoo gave me a bit of an extra bounce. Let’s Work.
