Brooklyn MC Ma Barker is known as the “fore-mother” of rap. She has worked with some of the hottest names in hip hop such as 50 Cent, Bun B, Uncle Murda and many more. This young artist is ready to take over the world by releasing her debut album in August. So while promoting her album, Ma Barker went back to the one place where hip hop started, Harlem. Famed photographer Scott Church created a beautiful photo shoot for the rapper at a new clothing store that has a lot of history in their clothes and in their art. Harlem Haberdashery is a new and up coming store located in the heart of Harlem. Founded by Shay Wood, their clothes have been worn by athletes and rappers. Designer’s from Dolce & Gabanna, and Collaborative Lab all have clothes in this store. Don’t let the big name designer’s fool you, it is affordable for everyone. The prices of the clothes range from $28-$1500.

On this particular Thursday, Ma Barker has a photo shoot with Scott Church and she is ready to shine. But Scott Church has a reason why he chose to do her photo shoot in Harlem. “Harlem is the birthplace of Hip Hop”, says Church. ” From Hip Hop to Sesame Street, Harlem has a lot of history and is the right place to have a photo shoot because it shows New York.” During the shoot, a lot of people came by to show support to Ma Barker up and coming group Sour Gang were there and rapper Fabolous showed up to show support. The photos came out nice and everyone had a good time in the new clothing store. I recommend when anyone comes to Harlem, visit the Harlem Haberdashery, located at 245 Lenox Avenue (between 122nd and 123rd street). You will not be disappointed with their clothes. And also, look out for Ma Barker’s Debut Album, set to be released in August. Thanks to Bernadette Giacomazzo for the photo’s. Enjoy
