On Saturday June 1,2013 in Mt. Trashmore, Virginia we had the pleasure to be part of a historical movement. Eight months of planning and a life-long dream culminated in one afternoon for Rob Hill Sr. With a crowd of over 1,000 supporters cheering behind him, Hill cut the ribbon and commenced his first ever “Thousand Kings Walk.”

“How do you feel pop culture influences peoples perception of sex?” -DJ Damage (GenerationNext: Uncovered)
Recently Kings Rule Together had the opportunity to be part of a great production titled “GenerationNext: Uncovered” which was produced, directed, and written by Shenille Latrice, CEO & Founder of iChoose2live.
The TeesVsTanks concept came about last year around this same time as a photo shoot titled “A King’s Theme: Tees Vs Tank“ highlighting 5 of some of the dopest brands out of Philadelphia. This year I’ve decided to take it a step further bringing 16 notable local clothing brands together for a 15 game 3 on 3 basketball tournament which took place at Parkside Evans Playground on 53rd and Parkside here in Philadelphia.
The brands included Bellargo, TOBH, Neo Daviso, Dosage’s “3D“, Abstract Thought, Anderung, Red Penguin, Chill Moody’s “nicethings“, Natrl Brn Heart Brkrs, Stay Cool,Geek Clothing, Anml Hse, Ibn Majid, Syck Dayz and of course the home team K.R.T. This was a promotion of peace bringing brand recognition 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 or a friendly game of basketball.
