There’s few bigger staples in hip-hop fashion than snapbacks and fitteds, but when Pusha T started rocking Ale at Ange’s Tropical Flower Zilla hat, we were intrigued. The hat is one of many designs by Ale et Ange, a boutique in NYC’s East Village run by Osoré Ale Oyagha and Jamaican native, Eloise Ange Simonet. Since opening the shop in 2009, the duo have been churning out menswear pieces from ties, and dress shirts to pants and of course hats

You Rate It: The Clipse Reunite With Reggae On “Shame The Devil”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Clipse-Nightmares

Virginia rap duo Clipse—brothers Pusha T and No Malice (formerly Malice)—were championing dancehall long before it became on trend in hip-hop again (particularly Pusha, whose latest mixtape, The Wrath of Caine, was full of Jamaican vibes), so it’s only fitting that their first track together in several years has some reggae flavor. We’re not sure who the vocalist on the hook for “Shame the Devil,” from No Malice’s upcoming Hear Ye Him album, is, but he sounds like a scientist-engineered cross between Beenie Man and Capleton, adding some red-hot fiyah fi burn bag ah wire over a hard-edged, hip-hop beat.

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Remember when having a Jamaican chick talking trash in thick patois was a thing in hip-hop? Dr. Dre kind of set it off on the intro to his classic “Let Me Ride” from The Chronic. Two years later, Biggie (and producer Poke of Trackmasters) had a young Diana King adlibbing something fierce at the beginning of “Respect,” from Ready to Die.
