Nine Rulaz Line is an amazing apparel collection based out of Yokohama, Japan, that continues to find new passionate fans in America, the UK, Jamaica and other places where dedicated fans of music inspired design rule direction. Nine Rulaz is unique in that the owners, including DJ Master Simon, are from Mighty Crown Entertainment, an internationally known music group that are the word and soundclash Champs of Japan, having sold-out the 35,000 seats in the Tokyo Dome annually with their soundclash event. They’ve also won 6 champion titles in the UK and even Jamaica, where they were the first non-Jamaicans to win as word champs. Ironically, when placed in a street fashion setting like MAGIC, it’s often only people in the know that realize that Master Simon is in the house, and that the brand called Nine Rulaz, that’s creeping into American and UK youth culture street fashion scenes, is actually created by such heavyweight music afionados of soundclash.
