While browsing http://njlawman.com/Roll Call.htm I found a link to the following article (just a quick side note I would like to njlawman.com for the nice write up on MassCops)

Beanie Sigel Launches Clothing Line
By Nolan Strong
Date: 9/3/2002 4:00 PM

Beanie Sigel has launched his own line of clothing, State Property Wear, which distinguishes itself from other brands with hidden pockets and gun holsters. Sigel says his line will be the hottest Urban wear since Levi's and described it as "hard everyday wear."

"You know how you put your gun in your waistline and you gotta worry about it slipping? With these clothes, you don't got to worry about that. It's already in there," Sigel told AllHipHop.com.

Sigel claimed that his clothing would aid the street cat that gets searched on the block.

"You ever been on the block and everybody was like hustling and you had your pack stashed in a phone booth or something like that and you got to go get to it? With these clothes you don't have to worry about going to the phone booth and all that," he said.

"Then you can stand there and don't worry about having to run from the police neither, because State Property can stand the search."

"[The clothing] has all kinds of hidden pockets, pockets inside of pockets, pocket behind pockets. That's my word," he said.

Sigel even admitted that he would change the clothing stash spots often in the event that the police and detectives begin to catch on.

"It ain't gonna be like, 'Its here every time.' Its gonna be changed up," he said. "Its not going to be the standard, the pockets are right here. Everything is different."

The clothing line, which is made by Roc-A-Fella was launched by Beanie and some friends from his block with contributions from designers from Roc-A-Wear. "It's like the younger brother to Roc-A-Wear, but its for the not-so-glamorous industry look," Sigel continued. "It's that hard everyday wear Its that gear you'll see ya pop throw on in the morning before he go to work, but he does construction, move furniture, whatever." Sigel said he even designed the logo, which has the letter "S" and "P" intertwined.

Unlike many urban clothing brands, Sigel stated that he was moved to offer an affordable alternative to some of the pricier lines.

"It's gonna bring what you need to table. For those who couldn't afford Polo they had Chaps. Well State Property is like that [to Roc-A-Wear].

Sigel further admitted that he might even be hurting those he wants to help by revealing this information.

"We made the clothes so hot, we shouldn't even discuss it, because it would be defeating the purpose," Sigel said.

I guess I am just not HIP 8) any more. Or should I say HIP-HOP. If they can't ban guns based on public safety why can't they ban clothing that aids in the commission of a crime(s). That is just unreal. I guess if I wanted to look like a construction worker, hide my dope and not blow all the profits from my dope sales on looking hip than these clothes would be a great investment.
