AKOO x EPIC Records Music Meets Fashion Tastemaker Event

AKOO held its second tastemaker/blogger’s event of the year done at the AKOO NY Showroom last month… Music Meets Fashion!

This time, they teamed up with EPIC Records and brought in the man behind the #1 single in the country, Ca$h Out. The event also featured Uncle Murda, Fresco Cane, and King L, all of which performed snippets of their hit songs.

The blogger response was amazing!! Red Bull’s own DJ Zeke provided music and Kazeem of Hip Hop Wired hosted the event.

Jason Geter, Epic Records executives, and Jermaine Dupri also stopped by to support.

Check out footage from the event in the video below:

Has Prison Helped Boost Sales Of T.I.’s AKOO Clothing Line?

Crime may not pay, but sales improved dramatically for T.I.’s AKOO clothing line while the hip-hop star was behind bars. According to TMZ:

“A rep for AKOO clothing tells TMZ, the company’s sales soared by 25% in the last year … while the rapper served time for drug possession.

The company rep said they hadn’t seen such a surge in popularity since T.I.’s MTV reality show ‘Road to Redemption’ premiered in 2009.

The rep says they’re preparing for another spike in sales — when T.I. is set free next week after completing his drug sentence.”

We’d like to believe that the success of AKOO speaks to the quality of the clothes and has nothing to do with T.I.’s back-to-back prison stints.
