Footwear Spezialist Sneakerstuff aus Schweden hat sich für die Promo seines exklusiven Adidas Originals Yung-1 Packs die von uns sehr geschätzte Funk-Legende und Stilikone George Clinton verpflichtet.
[…] George Clinton is the mastermind behind musical collectives Parliament – Funkadelic. He is considered one of the most influential people in music and is one of the most sampled artists of all time. Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, D“™Angelo, Childish Gambino, Tupac, Kendrick Lamar, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Prince and Outkast are some of the artists that Clinton has been sampled by or has directly produced music for. In 1997, Prince inducted Parliament and Funkadelic into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Clinton just released a new album „Medicaid Fraud Dogg“ and has been touring since the 1950″™s and has just announced his pending retirement next year at the age of 77.
„For Sneakersntuff working with Mr. Clinton seemed like an obvious choice for the Yung-1 campaign being that Clinton“™s influence on young artists is as relevant and impactful today as it“™s ever been. Additionally, the entire ethos of Parliament-Funkadelic is about creativity and inclusivity – it“™s a lifestyle that everyone is welcome to – a mantra that lines up with SNS“™s ideology as a brand.“ – Erik Fagerlind and Peter Jansson, Founders, Sneakersnstuff
Die purple Treter hätten Prince, der Parliament und Funkadelic 1997 in die Rock and Roll Hall of Fame eingeführt hat, sicherlich auch gefallen.
Das Yung-1 sneaker pack in Grey and Purple wird am 13. Oktober releast.
George Clinton geht übrigens im nächsten Jahr mit 77 zum letzten Mal auf Tour.
