Kings Rule Together will be hosting their first annual #TeesVsTanks basketball game this Monday, September 3rd- aka Labor Day from 12-5pm at Parkside Evans Park (53rd & Parkside). This tournament serves as a promotion for peace and unity. Over sixteen local, Philadelphia based clothing lines and brands have chosen to come together in “kingly” love to show our city that anyone of any diversity, social background, and even financial status can come together for a common good. All proceeds from this event are funding our on-site school supply giveaway. The first 100 kids in attendance to Monday’s tournament will receive school supplies and book bags; it’s our way of equipping them for tools of a successful school year.
The sixteen teams involved will play in elimination games, with the winning team will receiving a feature on www.KingsRuleTogether.com, photo shoot by Ricky Codio, video shoot by Derrick Woodyard and the Team and MVK “Most Valuable King” trophies.

Still cant quite believe it has been two years since we (Shaheed Rucker and Myself, Curran J.) started Arts, Beats and Eats here in Philadelphia,Pa. Reflecting back over the years of Arts, Beats & Eats it has far exceeded our expectations much more than we could ever imagine. Arts, Beats & Eats has become a staple for our culture and it’s become a must attend event for young entrepreneurs in the tri-state area. With each installment making connections and donating to various causes and charities we have watched many lasting partnerships & business opportunities come about every 1st Sunday of the month.
This month’s theme is geared around celebrating our 2 year anniversary by bringing you a FREE outside festival filled with plenty of vendors, food, live music and sounds provided by Dj Gianni Lee.
This event will be held at McMicheal Park on Henry ave and Midvale from 3pm-7pm.
The only thing we ask you to bring is school supplies which will be giving out at the 1st Annual K.R.T. “Tees vs Tanks” 3on3 Basketball Tournament September 3rd located on 53rd and Parkside Ave.
