In 2011, MTV2 brought the franchise back to life in the form of a series of “Yo! MTV Raps: Classic Cuts” specials that took a retrospective look at the era that helped shape and define hip-hop into the dominant music form it is today.

The collection includes five MTV logos and three ‘Yo! MTV Raps’ designs. Both New Era’s 59FIFTY fitted caps and 9FIFTY snapbacks are included in the offerings. The caps feature some of the most recognizable logos throughout MTV history. The imagery embodies the style of the 80s and 90s. They inspired details throughout each piece of the collection, including full under visor treatments.

Having spent his recent years in Virginia, the studio stalwart cliqued with a number of producers in the area and began producing content at a staggering rate. Capri’s catalog highlights include The Blur 1 & 2, Ray Bans & Cardigans, The 27 Club and the forthcoming Instant Gratification. The 27 Club won many new fans for Bobby, as the 27-track CD was inspired by the litany of celebrity deaths that happen at 27. Fleshed-out concepts like this prove that Bobby researches his witticisms and lyrics. “Before I lay my vocals, my lines are fact-checked and Googled” he notes.
