Many celebrities have worn Crooks and Castles, popularizing their brand even more. Jay- Z was featured in the New York post wearing C&C apparel. Kanye West has a collaboration shirt with C&C in Complex Magazine. Lupe Fiasco is also a big part of the brand and Calvero explains that they are buddies and he has really helped make their brand well- known. C&C caters to men and women, expanding the brand. The group of people who put together this brand grew up in the hood in LA and always had a villainous nature. They put together “crooks” because it referred to criminals, hustlers, pimps, etc. C&C added “castles” because the crooks got money to own a castle.
