The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, the beloved classic, is celebrating its thirtieth anniversary with a fresh new line of streetwear. The collection includes clothing that showcases the nostalgic era of the nineties with bold and colorful designs. Inspired by the show, this collection will transport you back in time.
This unisex collection offers a variety of shirts, pants, jackets, and accessories all with different fun and unique patterns. You can even get your hands on a Fresh Prince facemask to stay safe in style – which is one of 360 MAGAZINE’s favorites in the line. The clothing and accessories range from $15 to $200 so everyone can find something fresh to rock.
Some highlights of the line include a bright, blue varsity jacket that says “Fresh” across the front, perfect for channeling the energy of the Bel-Air Academy halls. There is also a color block t-shirt and sweatpant set that combines the fashion of the ‘90s with a common 2020 streetwear style.
There is even a limited edition crate series for $55 that comes with a ‘90s graphic tee, a pair of logo socks, a graffiti print beach towel, an exclusive air freshener, and a license plate enamel pin. You can choose the three crate option to get two more crates of similar goods to be shipped in October and December. If you buy the three crate plan you receive a free ornament to keep the swag going into the holiday season.
This “Who God Da Jazz?” collection was inspired by the prince, Will Smith, and DJ Jazzy Jeff, his music partner. This is the second collection featured on the website, the first being “Frressh Essentials.”
DJ Jazzy Jeff commented on the excitement of the collection in a press release by Chantel Muentes at Berk Communications. “Very rarely do television programs have such a significant cultural impact 30 years after its release, but to generate this type of excitement in 2020 is really a testament to the fans,” Jeff said. “This is really a celebration of a legacy and it’s incredible watching the series evolve into a fashion brand and influence an entirely new generation.”
Along with the clothing collection, Will Smith announced on his Instagram that a “real Banks family reunion is comin’ soon” and will be available on the new streaming service HBO Max.
This reunion isn’t the only premiere fans are anticipating. According to a youtube video posted by Smith he “closed the deal with Peacock with an unprecedented two-season order” that will reboot “Fresh Prince.” A fan of the show, Morgan Cooper, created a viral video in 2019 that showed the potential of a reboot. He will write and direct the reboot and Smith will be present as an executive producer along with a few others.
This line is perfect to get a fresh style just in time for fall. With the release of both the reunion and reboot coming soon, this is the perfect time to splurge on merchandise and channel your inner fresh prince. Although the style of the ‘90s has never truly faded from fashion, it’s making a full-force comeback with these unique streetwear styles.
Atlanta duo EarthGang continues to push the creative boundaries with its visual deliveries. The pair premiered the video for the track “Top Down” on Adult Swim early Sunday morning, featuring Olu and WowGr8 in puppet form, driving through the streets of Atlanta, visiting strip clubs, and diving under the sea to canoodle mermaids. EarthGang partnered up with long time collaborators Chad Tennies and Mac Grant for this video, the same creatives behind the “Night at The Museum” themed “Up” (WATCH HERE). Start your week off right with the “Top Down” video.

Hailing from Atlanta, GA, EarthGang’s Olu and WowGr8 are the GRAMMY Award-nominated, Platinum-selling pair who embody the best of the new generation in music — and plenty of critics and fans alike have taken note. Marrying lean, sharp-eyed lyricism with Southern-fried soul, every song arrives fully formed, hitting hard and landing jokes while also delving deep into political issues. Signed to J. Cole’s Interscope imprint, Dreamville, EarthGang first hit a stride with a 3-EP project inspired by “The Wiz;” Rags (Scarecrow), Robots (Tinman) and Royalty (the lion). The music saw the duo tour the globe relentlessly supporting J. Cole, Young Thug, Billie Eilish, Mac Miller, Jaden Smith, and more.
In 2019, EarthGang continued their dominance by contributing to the year’s best hip-hop compilation in Revenge of The Dreamers III — which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 charts is RIAA Platinum certified. It shined a spotlight on the pair as they went into the release of their debut major-label album, Mirrorland. The fourteen-track album debuted in the Top 40s of the Billboard 200 charts and #20 in the Rap Albums charts. Featuring special guests Young Thug, T-Pain, Kehlani, Arin Ray, and more — Mirrorland has cemented EarthGang as one of music’s most dynamic forces. Bursting with energy and having garnered a cult-like live following, the ATLiens have been critically praised by the likes of Pitchfork, Hypebeast, Highsnobiety, Hot New Hip Hop, Consequence of Sound, Uproxx, Pigeons & Planes and more. Stretching beyond the “indie hip-hop” label they’ve been brandished with, EarthGang is ready to reach a wider audience with slick-sharp lyrics that cut through the hazy blur of ratchet rap and an avid interest in never settling, or resting on their laurels.

Justin Bieber’s 2021 World Tour dates have been rescheduled in consideration of the Coronavirus pandemic. The tour, promoting his fifth studio album entitled Changes, was set to begin this past May but it will now start early June in 2021.
“I can’t wait to get out there and connect with my fans on this tour,” says Justin. “We’ve been through so much this year. More than ever, we’ve come to understand how much we need each other, and how meaningful these moments can really be.”
Individuals with tickets purchased prior to this update will be contacted by their ticket provider with further information regarding the tour and additional options if unable to attend the 2021 date, otherwise the ticket remains valid for the new date. All tickets from cancelled shows will be refunded, which can be expected within 30 days.
The new accommodations for the virus mean that he won’t be appearing at any stadiums, but to make up for it Bieber has added 19 new stops in major cities like Boston and New York. New artists will be joining Bieber, rather than Kehlani and Jaden Smith, who are no longer available. New tickets will be available for purchase on Thursday, August 6th at 10 AM local time.
The former teen sensation Bieber began his career at age 13, discovered by Scooter Braun on YouTube, and since then has released five albums, Changes being his latest. Bieber has sold over 150 million records and debuted number on Billboard 200, his fans’ dedication continued as he became the first musician to reach 7 billion streamers on Spotify. Despite having to reschedule his 2021 tour, Bieber’s success will likely continue in the future.
It’s a busy weekend for the formidable Atlanta duo, EarthGang, who has had an incredible rise since the release of their critically acclaimed debut album, Mirrorland last year. The Grammy-nominated pair (Olu and WowGr8), who are known for their vivacious live performance, will join Roots Picnic Festival, digitally, this year performing a cut from the album, “Wings.” Watch Roots Picnic Festival HERE. The performance will come ahead of the BET Awards, in which the pair are nominated for “Best Group” alongside Chloe x Halle, Migos, and more (Sunday, 8 PM ET on BET).

Aminé drops co-directed music video for “Riri”
Portland-based rapper, artist, director, culture shaker and innovative ingenue Aminé delivers his video for “Riri” which he co-directed with longtime visual collaborator Jack Bergert. The video was filmed in quarantine around LA mansions with cameos from the likes of beloved sports broadcaster Taylor Rooks. Aminé even locked writer/comedian Jak Knight, from ABC’s Black-ish, for a closing skit in the “RiRi” video.
“We shot this video before the murder of George Floyd & my knowledge of the Breonna Taylor case,” Aminé writes “but I felt compelled to delay its release for obvious reasons. Activism is essential right now so I put my focus there for the past few weeks. We skipped editing sessions to march in the Black Lives Matter protests. I’m dropping the ‘Riri’ video today because it’s important to show black joy in a time where we’re constantly seeing imagery of pain and suffering.”
Pegged “one of the most creative voices in hip-hop, Aminé shakes the culture every time he releases a new song” (Hot New Hip Hop) and “Riri” is no different. Complex Magazine reportedly “wouldn’t be surpris[ed] if the real Rihanna was caught on Instagram enjoying the new tune.” Hypebeast cosigns that “the centerpiece of ‘Riri’ is Aminé’s soulful hook and reflective lyrics buoyed by bassrich production from frequent collaborator Pasqué.”
In addition to the excitement of the new music video, Aminé has also joined forces with former YEEZY designer Sara Jaramillo and Alice Wang’s ILYSM to offer a $500 grant this week for an artist impacted by COVID-19 shutdowns. Applications for this round of #ILYSM4Artists are due by noon EST on Thursday 6/25 at ILYSM.COM .
Artists who move culture forward create their own. Aminé’s debut LP, “Good For You” did just that for Portland’s music scene, hiphop and the culture at large — buoyed by his 5x platinum RIAA certified breakout smash “Caroline,” “REDMERCEDES” and “Wedding Crashers” [feat. Offset]. The album which displayed mosaic influence from his parents’ Ethiopian heritage to trailblazers like Kanye West and André 3000, made an instantly indelible impact — scoring a RIAA gold certification, millions of singles streams, Spotify #1s, and 21 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 Songs Chart, peaking at #11. Aminé further solidified himself as a force of nature between explosive festival sets and show-stopping late nights. Maintaining this momentum, while owning his subdued profile and preference for an AirBNB wilderness cabin over a posh studio for recording, Aminé released his self-described 2018 EP/LP/MIXTAPE/ ALBUM “ONEPOINTFIVE.”
Earlier this year, Aminé continued on his promise to change perceptions and defy expectations with “Shimmy” paying homage to his past, while declaring 2020 as his. Accompanied by a co-directed music video love letter to Portland, the song garnered 20 Million streams globally and the gamut of fanfare which you can watch here. Continuing to expand his influence, Aminé also recently appeared on HBO’s Insecure this month.
