Influe'nSoul Clothing, is a streetwear brand without bling-bling nor "gangsta attitude". In the tradition of the sphere of influence "conscious hip-hop", the brand tries to communicate through every design its own values: maturity, reflection and sharing.
Out of 100 or so emails sent to various companies over several weeks requesting sponsorship, 3 of them got back to me and only one, Influe nSoul clothing from France actually agreed to sponsor The Formula 5 featuring special guests El Da Sensei and DJ Kaos on April 15th at Church of Boston (69 Kilmarnock St Boston MA).
Although there were a lot of awesome companies I was hoping would have responded but Influe'nSoul clothings' mission is right along the same frequency as our movement in terms of promoting social awareness so this turned out to be a great opportunity for all of us.
After building with Abdou, the owner of Influe'nSoul,on what it is Wreck Shop Movement is about and what we've done and plan to do, he made a comment about one of the Freedom Cipher video clips I sent him and commended me for what I was doing for the local scene in my area. I don't know for sure but I think it was on the strength of that, that he agreed to support the show financially and sponsor our staff with gear. In any case, I just know I'm thankful and very excited about the opportunity.
At first first I thought it was unfortunate that I couldn't find any local sponsors to get involved but then I realized what a great opportunity this is to work with a company based out of another country.
So when we livestream The Formula 5 on April 15th, I'm hoping some DJ's and promoters in France will want to build with the artists we have scheduled to perform. That would be awesome!
This product gets the Wreck Shop Movement cosign 100% and is very much looking forward to introducing Influe'nSoul clothing to the people in our area and beyond. Ideally we'd like to help get some of the gear in stores, especially stores like Kulturez Dynasty in Cambridge that supports conscious Hip Hop and culture.
You can check out more designs at www.influensoul.com or stay tuned for info on any stores in MA that agree to carry the gear!
