Iced Out Gear, submitted by Dr. Detroit. This site has been an awful link in the past, but I’m linking it again because I have an important urban fashion update to share with you all. Since I am a loyal customer of Iced Out Gear, I receive email notices on any of their new products available to the public. But before I get into that email, let me first explain the situation I experienced with my Iced Out Gear pimp cup purchase that I made last Christmas.
I ordered this extravagant and shiny pimp cup that was made entirely out of chrome plastic and cheap rhinestones for a friend of mine named Rikin, who is one of my best friends that was born in Bombay but acts like he is from Harlem. Anyway they accidently shipped the pimp cup to Illinois instead of Michigan, which I can understand because the words are very similar. Wait no they’re not. After I got on the phone with the customer service representative for Iced Out Gear, I straitened everything out and was told that I would get it in one month, well after Christmas when I was going to give the cup to my friend. When I finally get the pimp cup a month later, I find that they spelled his name in rhinestones incorrectly. Instead of “Rikin”, they spelled out “Rinik”. They failed making a cup with 5 letters! I gave the cup to my friend anyway and he punched me in the nose and that was the last I’ve heard from him. Thanks a bunch Iced Out Gear!
Anyway here is the email I received from Iced Out Gear a few days ago:

You doan even have to talk, jus point to the belt y’all. I can’t wait until they upgrade this thing to 400 million characters so I can have the novel Moby Dick on my belt. Shit dawg, that’s tight. No really the belt is too tight!
Really can urban accessories get anymore retarded than this? I would love to tell you the answer is no, but the sad truth is that Iced Out Gear has a team of Nazi scientists feverishly working in their labs to design the most diabolical and heinous urban apparel to further the downfall of western civilization so that the 4th Reich may rise from the ashes. I’m really tempted to buy this idiotic thing just so I can wear it and have it scroll the text “this is a belt”. That way everybody that sees it will know that it is a belt and not a biscuit or badger. 80 bucks is a little steep for a joke though so I think I’ll just hold out for the derby with spinnaz, LEDs, rhinestones, and air horns. Holla!
This is your typical consumer model throne. If you just want a cheap prop, it's fine. If you want to actually sit like a king, pony up the cash and get yourself a prosumer model. This entry level stuff is more for a duke or baron at best.
Do you wish to know what computers will be doing in the year to come? With a sigh I shall exert the minimal effort it takes to reveal all. Feel free to print out these predictions and share them with your friends via fax.
