The year-long celebration of hip-hop’s Golden Anniversary continued down South this past weekend, with DTLR contributing to the culmination of ceremonies with an applause-worthy event at the Trap Music Museum in Atlanta. In partnership with Nike, DTLR displayed the connections that form among hip-hop, sneakers, and the love of basketball through a variety of impressive exhibitions.
The event, officially dubbed “The South Got Something To Say”, was hosted by DTLR and featured special guest T.I., an iconic figure in the rise of hip-hop from the South. T.I. and the event-goers were presented with awesome displays of footwear tied to game-changing musicians and athletes that have shaped sneaker culture. Some of the notable figures honored included Drake, Michael Vick, and LeBron James, among others.
