Hella Tight X Hieroglyphics/Del The Bombay Fitted Cap Part II

"Hella Tight" is a California based clothing company that releases their own line of fitted baseball caps. Their hats have been rocked and endorsed by tons of Hip Hop artists such as Jay Electronica, Lil Wayne and E40, and they even released hats inspired by Kanye West and Del the Funky Homosapien. I copped the first collabo with Del which was entitled "The Bombay Fitted" and featured an all black colorway with Melton wool upper, leather button/visor, and 3M reflective Hieroglyphics logo.

It took me awhile to get used to wearing a fitted that wasn't made by New Era but as soon as I got past that fact I found that this was a pretty high quality h
at. Their attention to detail was meticulous, from the 3M lining on the inside and a Del logo subtlety stitched in black to the leather black button on top to match the visor. My only complaint was that it looked larger than most of the fitteds I wore but it wasn't too bad. I later realized that Hella Tight's fitted caps were about a size larger compared to New Era, so I recommend buying a size down from what you normally would. It looks like the first hat was pretty successful because Hella Tight has now released a second Bombay Fitted colorway.

Part 2 features a gray Melton upper in addition to all the details of the first one (including the nice satin lining on the inside.) This hat is now for sale on their site link which can be found at the end of this post. I'm also putting up the link for Del's album "Funk Man (the Stimulus Package)" which he released for free in late 2009. It's a solid release (especially for free) but I highly recommend his other release "Automatik Statik" which isn't free but only costs $3 with the option to pay more. Ever since he started making beats he's been handling the majority of production on his albums and Automatik Statik is the first one to sound like a cohesive fusion of Del as an MC and a Producer. That album is a much stronger release than "Funk Man" and evidence that Del is still able to evolve as an artist and keep up with the coming generations.
