The Tuff x Jamel Shabazz Collections is the culmination of years of friendship and photography. Tuff and Brother Shabazz met in NYC in a chance encounter that led to this amazing photograph and collection. Tuff, age 16, was shopping in SOHO NYC with friend Bobo Layz at the time. Brother Jamel Shabazz is known as a prominent documentarian of NYC hip hop culture and has released the signature books on old school street style "Back in The Days" and "A Time Before Crack". Tuff went on to become an independent fashion designer, and later international Reggae recording artist.
