Martorial elegance : Percy Miller's balaclava dilemma edition

Louie V Mob - Dope Case
(From New World Order mixtape; 2013)

Lovin' this joint from Percy's much-anticipated Louie V Mob 'tape since it goes buck, P arguably does Fat Trel better than Fat Trel currently does Fat Trel and blah blah blah, but, boy-oh-boy, king Miller sure could use some of Shawn Brauch's artistic alchemy right now; how's he gonna go from being in a trio of flaming skeletons wearing balaclavas on the classic Tru 2 Da Game cover to being in a trio of regular dudes wearing balaclavas with crappy No Limit screenprints that'll probably crumble off after one wash on the cover of this comeback mixtape?

This song is dope as fuck.

Here in "the states" we just call them ski masks instead of balaclava because we don't fuck with complicated words.

When I was in 6th grade my dad walked in on me going buck to TRU's "Hoody Hoo" and it was really embarrassing.

I guess Balaclava Way doesn't quite have the same ring to it as Ski Mask Way.

Prior to reading this, I thought balaclava was a delicious pastry. Very informative.

We call them balaclavas at The North Face. And, they aren't that cheap knit material.
