Around this time last year I curated a photoshoot titled “A King’s Theme: Tees Vs Tank” highlighting 5 of some of the dopest brands out of Philadelphia. This year we have decided to take it a step further by hosting Kings Rule Together (K.R.T.) first annual “Tees VS. Tanks” 3-on-3 basketbal tournament from 6pm-10pm at Parkside Evans Park (53rd & Parkside) Friday, September 7th. This event will be sponsored by Vitamin Water and Changemakers Org and Cory Townes.
Come out and cheer on your favorite clothing brands as they compete for a team and MVK ” Most Valuable King” trophy. A total of 16 games will be played amongst 16 notable local clothing brands including 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
winning team #KRT.
All proceeds from this event have been spent on school supplies for the young kings and queens of Philadelphia as they prepare to head back to school on September 7th. Spectators are free to come out to enjoy our friendly competition, jam out to DJ J5ive, go nuts on our moonbounce, and shop amongst the the various competing clothing lines – make sure you bring plenty of cash. Ricky Codio & Darren Burton will be conducting photoshoots on site, live broadcast by @PodCastWeds and all video footage from the days events will be shot by Derrick Woodyard. This is one royal event you don’t want to miss! See you Friday!
