Ravager by Quiccs x Martian Toys : Clout Edition Will arrive with Certificate of LE numbered 1/1.
My inspiration for this is just “Clout” being famous and having influence; Power, fame, money, influence, style, etc. and the one era that struck me hard like that was 80s hip-hop which those of you that follow me here KNOW growing up earlier days in the Bronx having a certain rep was everything especially in hip-hop.
With bigger budgets and bolder rhymes, came bigger, bolder shines. At the height of Run-DMC’s, well, run, adidas gifted the trio solid gold Classics sneakers. Of course they achieved even greater infamy with their dookie rope chains, but don’t think that’s where the buck stopped. They’d routinely rock some of the sickest gold watches, rings and pendants of the era. LL Cool J is another example of gold rope chain excellence. He was also one of the first to popularize four-finger rings, but it was Biz Markie who took it a step further, flooding his with diamonds. In 1987, when Eric B. and Rakim released Paid In Full, their album cover was literally covered in money. Slick Rick, an eyepatch icon without peer, got full-on monarchal with his accessories that ranged from crowns and sceptres to wearing a dozen solid gold chains all at once.
