TheLegendsLeague presents Naturally Born Strangers [Mixtape]
Toronto, ON – TheLegendsLeague presents Rich Kidd, Tona and Adam Bomb together as Naturally Born Strangers:
Toronto’s finest rhyme spitters Rich Kidd, Tona, and Adam Bomb have teamed up with Bryan Espiritu of Toronto based clothing line TheLegendsLeague to form Naturally Born Strangers, the audio component to the TheLegendsLeague’s F/W 13 collection that dropped Saturday Nov. 30 at Livestock in Toronto (116 Spadina Ave.) and other retailers across Canada. The full collection will be available online this friday at TheLegendsLeague.com. We’ll post a preview and a reminder so stay tuned for that.
Following the first three singles “A Gun And A Pack Of Sandwiches” premiered by Mass Appeal, “Tie Breaker” premiered by OnSmash, and “Jameson Ave.” premiered by Complex, the trio now delivers the full project, entirely produced by Rich Kidd in full via AudioMack.
With Espiritu at the creative helm, the clearly-defined visual aestethic of this project is explained below:
“Naturally Born Strangers represents those born and raised different who don’t associate themselves with the common communal circles. It’s a proclamation of pride in the power of being disliked, unwanted or obscure, weird or foreign to the norm. It’s for the stranger and the more strange, the new community of outcasts, the antithesis to the neighbourhood and the cynics of its circles. NBS is the umbrella title to those influenced by much, deterred by nothing and unknown the world over.
It’s a reflection of our societies vision of “normal”. The queen is represented to create familiarity but has been tainted to identify the strange. It’s fuck government, fuck the system, fuck money, fuck fame, fuck art.” – Bryan Espiritu & James McGurk of TheLegendsLeague.
TheLegendsLeague is both a creative agency and clothing company based in Toronto, Canada. Founded by Bryan Espiritu in 2007, it began as a blog platform that outlined his life experiences spanning from struggles with a history of domestic violence to suicide and being a young father. In 2008, the inaugural season of the clothing line was released under the name “IDEALL” which was an acronym for “Inspiration Driven Esthetic Apparel by TheLegendsLeague” as well as “I’ll Die Enormous And Live Lavish”. The design approach for TheLegendsLeague’s graphics has been simple: communicate a personal opinion on relatable ideals and concepts in ways that challenge or stimulate how people see, feel or think. Bryan Espiritu continues to design outside of graphics for TheLegendsLeague with clients including: LiveStock, Frank The Butcher, Drake and Nike. His solo art exhibit in 2011, “Because The Kids Don’t Play” was the biggest solo opening of any artist in Canadian history.
Available at retailers across Canada. Collection will go on sale online this Friday at http://www.thelegendsleague.com.
