Inside the King Ice Lions Den, meet the mural street artist Aleck Christian and Carla Ricci of Beautiful San Diego, who made it all possible. Arguably the best hip-hop street artist in the world, Aleck was invited to the King Ice office, near Los Angeles, CA., to paint what turned out to be a masterpiece. Directly on the interior walls of the entrance to the King Ice office is six larger than life, 10 feet murals of hip-hop legends Notorious B.I.G. aka Biggie Smalls, 2Pac Shakur, Wu-Tang, Run D.M.C, Snoop Dogg, and Crowned Lion. We've already said too much so we'll let the work speak for itself.
The night of the Tyson/Seldon fight Tupac Shakur was wearing a large medallion that he had purchased containing $30,000 worth of diamonds which was 3 inches in diameter. The medallion itself isn't odd but the image on it is. The middle of it contained an emblem for "Euphanasia" the name of 2Pac's new company. It had a image of a muscular black angel of death on his knees with his head tilted down and on his back a huge pair of wings and a halo.
Euphansia was 2Pac's take on Euthanasia which means an easy and painless death or a way to end suffering. This was the last chain Tupac was seen wearing alive and it's been said, "the energy of Pac lives within those who wear the Euphanasia necklace."
Champion athletic wear company recently opened its first U.S. retail store in Los Angeles, CA in the La Brea fashion district. Outside the flagship store were hundreds of loyal supporters of the fashion brand looking to purchase an exclusive assortment of the new Champion collection. While waiting in line, dozens of supporters won custom jewelry from King Ice as well as limited edition releases including pieces from the Live Nation ODD Future collection.
"Thanks to a series of well planned strategic collaborations and the fact that celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Gigi Hadid have been adopting the brand's sweatshirts, a new generation of consumers have pulled the hundred-year-old brand out of a slump," according to CassidyMantor from Fashion Network.
Champion's Flagship is located at 123 South La Brea Avenue in LA.
New King Ice Champion Jewelry collection expected to be released June 26, 2018.
