PENN SOUL x GRAND SCHEME PGH

I recently had the luxury of doing some design and music collaborations with Grand Scheme PGH . Grand Scheme PGH is a mens lifestyle brand with a strong focus on quality garments, bold (and sometimes humorous) designs and finished looks.  They pull inspiration from the pride they have in their hometown, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania as well as 90’s skate, sport & hip hop culture.  The owners, Vince Masi and Adam “DJ Nugget” Kulik met in the late 90′s through breakdancing.  The have continued to work together through multiple business platforms over the course of the last 13 years.  Both are self-made entrepreneurs and have decided to come together to pursue another one of their many passions, clothing. 

Below is a hat and t- shirt I designed you can purchase at GRANDSCHEMEPGH.com . Also below you can find a mix I did for their monthly online radio show GRAND SCHEME RADIO

" MOST OF MY HEROS DON'T APEAR ON NO STAMP"

Madina is a designer out of Brighton UK . As a DJ / Designer, his work instantly caught my eye. He combines Golden Era hip hop with modern design. Much of his recent work has been shaped around the lyrics of Chuck D / Public Enemy where he proclaimed, "MOST OF MY HEROS DON'T APEAR ON NO STAMP" . Madina flipped that line and has done just that . Madina has taken just about all the heros of any hip hop head and gracefully placed them on their own individual stamps within his designs. Go check out his stuff and see if your fav artists made the cut at  http://shop.madina.co.uk/ .
