Lee Scratch Perry for Supreme T-Shirts and Interview

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 work Perry produced with Marley is among the most outstanding of their respective careers, including the immortal Soul Rebels and Soul Revolution albums, plus unique singles such as Jah Live, Punky Reggae Party and Rastaman Live Up.

For this Spring season, Lee Perry has collaborated with Supreme on two T-Shirt designs featuring his written word and his original artwork. The tees will be available in-store on March 4th and in Japan on March 6th.
