KID INK... my guy! The supersoka himself dropped his highly anticipated EP '7 Series' this past May and celebrated with fans by releasing new merch for the project.
I had the opportunity of pulling up to the pop shop held at The Alumni Store off West Hollywood to check out what the hottest pieces were and give you the inside scoop of what you missed out on.
Now on a scale of 1-10 rate this pop up an 8. Thats pretty high saying it didn't have a whole bunch. The top items that were my personal favorite and also that seemed to be selling well were
1. Gold Alumni Chains that range in different lengths and sizes.
2. Alumni Hats that came in either "Dad hat" or "Snapback" and multiple colors.
3. 7Series x Alumni Collab Tee that was sold in two different colors and cut out on the sides. Although it the shirt is made for the men, it is still perfect for my ladies to wear in the summer as a dress and cute heels or even swimsuit cover up. Just saying.
4. Alumni Slides cause you know we all can get enough of those. Would have been coo to see a pair of them with 7 Series included on it.
Now they were other dope items as well in the store that were 7 series related are more driven towards the women which were black and grey tops that had cut out around the collar/neckbone area that featured the full tracklist of the 7 Series EP .
I really enjoyed how the merch he had available was a something for the everyone and not just aimed at men only.
Top all that off, this pop up shop was definitely a Win not just because of the merch and the ambiance, and location was on point but also because Kid Ink made sure to Meet N Greets every fan who came out to support.
There was a DJ spinning all the bomb records AND... he also had a Fatburger truck outside for everyone that attended. You know when there is food around you automatically making people happy lol.
Check out the video below where he breaks it down exactly what "Alumni" means to him and his personal designs on the 7 Series merch.
