Attic is one of the biggest streetwear/lifestyle stores in the world. Their Buena Park location looks like they kicked out Forever 21 and added some swag in it. They’ve become one of IMKING’s best retailers. The great thing about the Attic is they are putting independent brands on a bigger platform. Taking a chance on small companies and helping them shine. The events they hold always prove to be successful. It’s a lot more fun to be here than Knott’s Berry Farm. James the head honcho of Attic has built this empire into three shops(including San Diego and Alhambra). He’s put together a team that value great customer service, and I am proud of having IMKING in a prestige account like Attic.
When we first started IMKING was about the time that the Attic was getting ready to open up. Polo and myself knew that we had to get into this store. We walked in when they were still putting the place together and met James. We talked to him about IMKING without having a catalog on us. After Magic came by and we met one of his employee’s, they were thinking about picking up the line. At the time, Chris Ngo still worked for another clothing company. James gave Chris a call to see what he thought of us. Chris vouched for Attic to give IMKING a chance. And the rest is history..
Over the years, we’ve had great events together. We had to hold it down for the hometown. They’ve done a wonderful job of making that well known. I have a lot of love for these guys and we look forward to seeing Attic explode into thousands of stores in the future. Shout out to James, Justin, Elvin, Nick, Mattie, Matt, Albee, and everyone else at the Attic team.
OPM’s Zeke has been in the studio for the past couple of months working on his upcoming album, 2090. The projected release date is still in the works and most likely will drop in early September. He invited me out to the Woodworks Studio in Inglewood to listen in on a few of his upcoming tracks with his producer/songwriter, D Smoke. If you liked Zeke’s feature on Dom Kennedy’s OPM track, then you’re going to go crazy on all of his upcoming music. He definitely brings out the “vibe” and makes you want to nod your head for days.
Someone had to play the drums before I left.
