Edwin "Phade" SacasaEdwin “Phade” Sacasa is an alumni of Manhattan’s High School of Art and Design, He transformed the world of hip hop fashion in the 1980s when he began applying the colorful street artistry he scribbled on trains and building walls to T-shirts and sweaters. “The Shirt Kings,” was named after Sacasa’s graffiti tag “King Phade.” Operating out of the famous Coliseum Mall in Jamaica, Queens, he created customized designs inscribed with nicknames, brand names, caricatures, and cartoon characters—but not your average ones (think: Roger Rabbit firing an Uzi). Their shop was frequented by rap legends including Jam Master Jay, RZA, and Jay-Z, all of who equated the Shirt King’s style with style of the street.
