If y’all don’t know who Lee Scratch Perry is you better do your research; google him, find his musiq, or pick up a back issue of Waxpoetics Magazine.
A complex and contradictory being, Lee Scratch Perry is one of the most important creative, artistic and musical figures to emerge in the latter half of the 20th Century. He is a devout Rastafarian that believes in extraterrestrials, has proclaimed his children angels in the literal sense, and advocates black supremacy and an end to taxation while living with a wealthy European wife in Switzerland. The sonic innovations he fostered at his Black Ark studio in Kingston during the 1970s have spawned immeasurable changes to popular music worldwide, and he has directly influenced numerous important figures active in other genres, including everyone from Paul McCartney and Brian Eno to the Clash, the Beastie Boys and Jay Z.
For this Spring season, Lee Perry has collaborated with Supreme on two T-Shirt designs featuring his written word and his original artwork. Available in-store on now.
