What really determines a great year? The amount of money, happiness, or love..? 2011 was an awesome year for myself but there was always an opportunity for improvements. I started K.R.T. in November of 2010, taking a chance putting myself and work out there not knowing what peoples reactions would be. Even if it did not catch their eye, I still worked hard because it is something I believe in.
“Recongize, Inspire and then motivate” – Young King
Pusha T of the Clipse & Ab Liva came pass my fathers clothing store Kamouflage Concept store the other day. Got a chance to talk to him about his clothing line “Play clothes” and the steps he went about starting his line. Got a chance to learn about his perpective on the fashion industry and being an artist starting their own line. -K.R.T.
” The colors don’t make the man, the man makes the colors.” – Young King
When you think of a King what’s the first thing that comes to mind, a strong masculine man of power with a deep voice that is charming? Maybe? Maybe not? A King is a gentleman who is highly respected in some fields, carries himself with the utmost dignity and holds a preeminent position amongst competitors. It is the 21st century and I can assure you that the idea of a King has changed drastically. Not looked upon as someone sitting on a high throne, I do not look for the approval of others, being a King is a mindset.

Special thanks to all K.R.T. supporters who tuned in.
Recently participating in the Villa Dream Project, I had the opportunity to speak to some students in a classroom setting at Benjamin Franklin High School. The irony of it all is that I was actually attending because I knew there would be over 40 industry leaders— such as former president of Def Jam Kevin Liles, Mayor Michael Nutter and top executives at Nike, Twitter, NBA, BET and more—came together for the Villa Dream Project. Through a series of panels and networking opportunities, the executives provided mentorship and advice to hundreds of Philadelphia high school students.
