Pimpin' connected n*gga, my stripes'll outrank ya
Aye, me and my 501's, lookin' for an endorsement
In 'em I'll make a fortune
All I ask is Levi to make ya pockets deeper
So my stacks of paper can fit in them and re-up"
Dru Down - My 501's
(From My 501's single; 2017)
It was inevitable My 501's would worm its way into Team Martorialist's affections eventually because this song has hidden charms for those of us who were in the mood for some new late-career Dru Down after Street Knowledge recently paid homage. Sometimes you've just gotta let a slap be a slap, so the trick with this joint is to forget the video where Dru's dressed like he's auditioning to join Jeremy Clarkson's Amazon show and remember how well he wore his 501's back in t'day. Et voilà, you have D Squared's code to menswear masquerading as an ode to Levi's: where sagging should stay above arse-level, and Hoet Laureates & regular blokes alike should aspire to look like outlaws at the O.K Corral rather than ponces on the Paris catwalk.
