Born x Raised was conceived by brand founder Spanto whilst he was incarcerated. Hype was created around the brand in 2011 when Prodigy of Mobb Deep and Evidence of Dilated Peoples wore the brand’s tees.
The label represents the past and present of Los Angeles with old English fonts being used to wail against the gentrification that has taken over many of the city’s neighbourhoods.
In 2012, Spanto worked with 2Tone to launch the brands first complete collection, the label being carried at Union Los Angeles since then, co-signed by Kendrick Lamar; the label also gaining fans through its often illicit designs.
