Chillin' Island is a New York City-based collective helmed by Dapwell, Despot, and Lakutis. Chillin' Island features weekly sketches, in-depth interviews, and undercover man on the street segments in the form of riotous, rip-roaring, rabble-rousing rap radio. The long-awaited Chillin' Island double embroidered T is available now and is seen here on extended members of the Chillin' Island family: Alia Shawkat, Antwon, and Lil Ugly Mane. Photographed by Whitney Lasker in Los Angeles, 2016.

Sudden Star on Know Wave brings you the stars you may have never seen. A cosmic journey through humanity often in the form of interviews and sometimes musical journeys. Hosted by Josh Safdie and Sebastian Bear-Cloud. The Sudden Star sleeveless T is photographed on sudden star Douglas Levison. Levinson became visible when someone slyly snapped a video of him waxing poetics down near the south street seaport of NYC when an amateur trumpet player violated "the holy silence that all artists must respect." He rattled off one of the blackest belts of verbal judo in the style of beat poetry the streets have ever seen. The video went viral and he became a sudden star.
Buddy Duress was always a sudden star. Born in Queens, he became a street legend drifting in and out of jails and prisons only to eventually drift onto the silver screen for his internationally acclaimed performance in "Heaven Knows What." There's no volume button on Buddy, he's always loud and clear. He can next be seen in "Good Time" opposite Robert Pattinson and "Human People" opposite Michael Cera. Both Douglas Levison and Buddy Duress photographed by Josh Safdie in New York City, 2016.
The Sudden Star T is available Tuesday, July 26, at noon EST.
