About The Republic

Two brothers. One dream. 

If you ask Stash or "Supreme" he'll tell you "it's North of Africa, but the center of the universe." Birthplace of some of hip-hop's biggest icons, greatest athletes, and prolific minds and artists. Stash embodies the raw, uncut, gritty energy of Brooklyn, if you've ever caught his IG posts or just talked to him, then you very well know. Not known as an MC but is known to spit a freestyle at any given time, and a harsh critic of those who call themselves MC's. He moved from Brooklyn, New York to Brooklyn Avenue in Kansas City, Mo so the connection was uncanny and almost cosmic. 

Roc Flair is the most dynamic, prolific MC in the Midwest since Common. He brought his knack for producing and engineering greatness to the Republic, it also helped that the two had the longest running independent hip-hop internet radio show. Roc has dropped some classic underground mix tapes, both as a solo artist and part of O.O.C (Order Outta Chaos) alongside Ghosy Mafioso, and with the rhyme conglomerate the Legion of Lyricists. Roc is the engineering genius behind WKYA Radio alongside his long time childhood friend and co-host......Stash Madison. 

The two started Blac Cotton Clothing Company in 2001, and it grew into The World Famous Closet Junkies. They have created more than just authentic hip-hop apparel for some of the cultures biggest names and artists, but over time it grew, and matured, and like all things in order to rebuild one must destroy......we wanted to move the black culture forward, and empower the next generation, we embody the spirit of Clarence Avant, Steve Stoute, Russell Simmons and Dapper Dan. Thank you for the blueprint.
