UO EXCLUSIVE: THE MILKCRATE MIXTAPEAugust 19, 2014
Fresh from the streets of New York City, the new Milkcrate Athletics collection has landed and we’re celebrating with this exclusive mixtape from the man himself, Aaron LaCrate.
Since 1997, LaCrate has been a major player in the music game– producing tours, designs, and remixes for some of the greatest names in hip-hop culture – Jay Z, ASAP Rocky, Schoolboy Q, Raekwon – the list is endless.
His brand, Milkcrate Athletics, is the all-encompassing streetwear label that embodies the culture he has lived and breathed since his days as a kid in Baltimore throughout the ’80s. It was here LaCrate grew up amongst graffiti artists and skateboarders, as well as taking to the decks as DJ Cool Aaron in the city’s underground club circuit.
Now based in NYC, the Milkcrate legacy lives on with international acclaim – a designer by day, a DJ and producer by night – each world interlocks to create one of the most credible streetwear brands today.
So hit download, crank your speaker to full – and then get a load of our Milkcrate Athletics collection.
