Questlove x Vintage Frames Company

Montreal-based purveyors of eyewear Vintage Frames Company recently caught up with Philadelphia’s Questlove for the latest episode of their “The History of Eyewear in Hip-Hop” series. During the interview Quest makes mention of how particular icons like MC Hammer, Darryl of Run DMC and even renowned hustlers like New York City’s Alpo made particular frames as iconic as they were. The Roots drummer also points out how the world of Hip-Hop “accessories” and its images clashed with his sheltered upbringing, making it impossible for him to bring home so many of these renowned relics despite his infatuation with the culture.
