Those Folks 2012 Recap

We started off 2012 with the release of our very first pair of sunglasses with Crap Eyewear.

The sunglasses would drop on the 19th of January, and later land on the face of Lil’ Wayne in his video for “Mirror” featuring Bruno Mars. It was very surreal to say the least…

We went through a quick “trippy” stage in all respect to Juicy J.

A GIRL GOT THOSE FOLKS TATTED ON HER!!!

We came together with DTA (Don’t Trust Anyone) to host a “Chill N’ Grill” at Stoner Park

The SMC Corsair published an article on Those Folks in their newspaper.

2012 seemed like the right time to put out a Those Folks x Warm Brew collaboration.
Not only are we very good friends, but they are a REALLY dope hip-hop group from the same side of town; it was only right to come together and give our folks a dope show & t-shirt.

Breaks Magazine interviewed me (Richard Massie) about Those Folks…

Our brother “Black Daniel” was released from jail, but arrested again later in the year…

WE ENJOYED THE SUMMER LIKE WE ALWAYS DO!

The demand for a Those Folks x DTA collabo grew strong so we decided to make that happen.

In July we held our very 2nd Art Show in Koreatown with a live performance by Azizi Gibson

We dropped our “Not Like Most Folks” video

After Blake placed 4th at Damn Am Woodward West & won the Zumiez Destroyer Award, he followed up with the release of his 2012 video part!

WE GOT OUR VERY OWN OFFICE SPACE!!!

We accomplished (in my opinion) our best/most challenging photoshoot so far.

We re-released our “Say No To Hoes” t-shirt in 2 new colorways along with a new logo tee at Brooklyn Projects in November.

After the release we took a percentage of the profits and fed the homeless in Venice for Thanksgiving.

2012 was a great year for us and we’re happy to say we survived “The End of The World”
Best wished to everyone in 2013, hopefully the good things keep rolling into the new year.
