Supreme has announced an exciting new collabo with Wackies, the legendary Bronx Reggae label. As their announcement puts it: “Founded in the 1970s by Lloyd “BullWackie” Barnes on White Plains Road in the Bronx, Wackie’s is considered by many to be the first significant Reggae studio and label in the United States. As a Kingston youth, Lloyd Barnes was entranced by the sound systems of Duke Reid and Coxsone Dodd. In 1967 he left Jamaica and came via England to New York, where he created his own sound system called Bullwackie’s Disco and would play at dances all around New York City.”  The collection features T-shirts, snapbacks and tank tops in multiple color festooned with images of Sugar Minott, Horace Andy, and of course the famous Wackies lion. They’re now for sale online and in-store so get em while they last! Click on the cap above to see the full collection and the tunes that inspired it…
