Thirstin Howl The 3rd Joins The Polo King of Japan, Dak-Lo, For “Japan Style”
The Lo-Life ambassador, Thirstin Howl The 3rd, takes over Japan in this new video from his latest album, Skillmatic.
You’re not a real hip-hop head if you don’t know about the history of the Lo-Life Crew. MC Thirstin Howl The 3rd is one of the most known ambassadors of the Polo culture, so it is only right that he takes us to the illest places where the fashion game is on point.
The video, which originally premiered via Earmilk, was filmed while on an international speaking tour promoting his book, Bury Me With The Lo On. Co-authored by Tom Gould and released by Victory Journal, Thristin details his experiences while in Japan, saying, “The style and fashion over there is just like New York, done to perfection and passed down to the children.”
Featuring the Polo king of Japan, Dak-Lo, “Japan Style” was filmed on the streets of Tokyo and also has a bonus cameo from the one, the only Meyhem Lauren. Skillmatic, which “Japan Style” appears on, is the latest from Thirstin Howl The 3rd. With appearances from Sticky Fingaz, Cella Dwellas’ U.G., Shabaam Sahdeeq, Master Fuol, and more — Skillmatic is full of must-hear album cuts for your head top.
In addition to his work as an MC, Thirstin Howl The 3rd has also been directing several film features and documentaries. One such project, Love and Loyalty Weekend, will be an annual music and film festival that Howl and Lo-Life throw in Miami at the world famous Art Basel event. If you’re going to be in town for it, please make sure you check it out as it will take place on Dec. 8 through the 10 at Grandma’s House (84 NW 26 Street).
