Dungeon Forward is fueled by Music, Art, & Street Culture and it is only right that we collaborate with the best in each of those spaces at the grassroots level. The purple brim is inspired by the royal cloth that adorned the most praised leaders of the past and purple was thought to be the most difficult color to artificially create. The RR emblem is embroidered in gold as that is the currency with which we all seek, and also was used to embellish the kings and queens of every generation. The interior ties back to the music and the boards used to produce high definition sound. The side features an abstract crown of laurel that was work in parade by the Caesars of the past. This is a true collaboration all tied together by a rough denim – the material created to do hard work. This grind is forever.
Hardwork beats talent when talent fails to work, that’s a motto Bugsy lives by. Bugsy, who is from an area of Miami where your hustle determines your net worth, has managed to prove he is both. As an artist he toured with Miami legend JT money at just 17. He loved being an artist but soon found his passion was in writing. Bugsy soon became know as RadioRoyalty and has worked with some of the industry’s biggest stars such as Red Spyda, Jason Derulo, Flo-rida, and many more. His latest creation “lit btw” for Chris Brown’s OHB artist Luvaboy TJ is making noise and set to impact the summer in a major way. “Others write songs I try to write history” says Bugsy. For this talented songwriter hardwork will definitely soon be paying off!
There is no need to fit in in the land of sheep. There is no need to follow in the land of drones. What is weird when weird is home. This is yet another crown for the culture to claim their rightful throne. The weird gang is for those who have no desire to conform.
100% Cotton Twill Crown with Suede Brim and Leather Enclosure.
This version has a black Africa emblem to symbolize the rich land from which we came. This special edition crown combines headlines and historical moments in Black History into a sculptural homage to a relentless journey. Black history hasn’t been pretty, but the journey tells a story of resilience and mental toughness beyond any imaginable condition. From the depths of the Dungeon the people will “Rise” up rings true by every measure in this instance. This controversial piece highlights some historical moments in black history without hiding beneath a veil of censorship. We thought long and hard before releasing such a concept piece as we realize that homage can dig up once forgotten and difficult memories. This piece was created simply to celebrate from whence we came with a sense of pride, in order to remind the world what a people so far from their original land are made of, and how those once oppressed will always RISE up.
