History Lesson: The Hundreds X Death Row Videos Will Teach You All You Need To Know About the Iconic Record Label
We’re gassed on the killer collection from The Hundreds x Death Row. We love the designs, the pieces themselves, and the overall aesthetic. We’re stoked to have a wide variety of pieces from the collection avalible in-store and online, and we’re glad you all love it as much as we do.
With a collaboration this interesting, there’s always a backstory, and some of our younger Piff-ers (yes, we just made that term up) may not know the history or legacy of Death Row. Thankfully, along with the apparel, The Hundreds was kind enough to bless us with a series of videos briefly explaining their legacy and showcasing their most famous members.
Here’s a year-by-year history of the infamous label, showcasing their biggest moves in chronological order.
