This past December Teron Stevenson (Black Scale Sales Manager) and I went to Tokyo Japan to see our distributors, go shopping and eat at all the amazing restaurants Tokyo has to offer but first we of course went to work and met up with a few of the magazines, 411 being one of them to talk about Black Scale and what we have in store for 2012. Check it out and hope you can read what it has to say.
The good people at FLJ magazine came to New York to shoot A$AP Rocky for the Black Scale x A$AP Rocky Capsule that will be releasing this February/March at all 3 Black Scale stores and select retailers worldwide. Our Japan distribution Calquinto and FLJ Magazine set up this shoot with A$AP Rocky and us so Japan can see first hand what the Capsule is all about and to share a little bit of who A$AP Rocky is. Thanks to Emily of Calquinto for making it out to New York, FLJ Magazine, the A$AP familia and Calquinto Japan for believing in our vision. Live, Love, BLVCK
