RECAP: BAPE CELEBRATES 10TH YEAR ANNIVERSARY WITH TRAVI$ SCOTT, PUSHA T, VASHTIE, & MORE

Last night I had the honor of DJing the 10th year anniversary party for my BAPE family alongside Flat White (Virgil Abloh), Cipha Sounds, and Sky Gellatly. There were amazing performances by my friends Pusha T and Travi$ Scott. The party also introduced their new limited-edition capsule collection which features collaborations with artist like Kid Cudi, Flatbush Zombies, Futura, and more. It was definitely a night to remember (and not to mention my birthday!)
