I met R.J., the owner and founder, of Pur3ly Root3d Clothing in 2010 when I launched Million Monkey. R.J. has been a mentor to me and always helps me with ideas and concepts. The word on the streets is that he is like the Godfather of clothing brands here in San Antonio! Check out our interview with him. R.J. thanks for taking some time out of your schedule to talk with us! Please introduce yourself and your brand for our friends and fans that may not know you? Word, Thanks for the interview! Well, most people call me RJ, as you just did, my government name is Ryan Johnson ssshhh don’t tell anyone. I am the owner and founder of the lifestyle brand Pur3ly Root3d. We’ve been around now for just under 7 years and we do cool shit. One of my favorite hashtags is #FREEKINGTUSK ,who is King Tusk, how do we free him, and how does the tree relate to Pur3ly Root3d? King Tusk is our mascot! He represents the 3 principles our company was founded on. Knowledge – because an elephant never forgets, Strength – because well he’s an elephant, and Unity – because elephants travel in herds as a family unit and that’s how we roll as a family. The hashtag #FREEKINGTUSK initially started out as a joke to get me or anyone in our crew

I became a Nooka fan last March when I picked up one of their watches from Sole Boutique in San Antonio, TX. What I liked about the watch was it’s unique look, simple constuction, and VIBRANT colorways!!! My girlfriend liked the product so much she bought a lime green Asset Organizer (AO). With Spring fast approaching Nooka has redesigned some of it’s products for their 2011 Spring lineup. The AO was reconstructed so that it’s wider so you can now store cash with your credit/debit cards and ID’s. The Zub was redesigned with the most eye catching and best selling colors Nooka has to offer in addition to more awesome collaborations. This Spring Collection wouldn’t be complete without some DOPE eyewear, so say hello to the Mercury’s! Check out some pics below and visit the official Nooka site to get more info. *Images taken from the Nooka official website
I am a little behind on this, but better late then never!! 2010 came and went extremely fast and it included excitement, learning experiences, networking, new friends, and many more. Million Monkey officially hit the scene in March at SneakerPalooza held by Julio and Fabby Rodriguez of Sole Boutique. I had already been marketing Million Monkey Clothing and met Sole Junkie online. I decided to fly him out to attend the event and made a friend and mentor for life! I met a few other influential people at SneakerPalooza who I call my FRIENDS today. Those friends are Trung and the crew at LoyalKNG, John Southee with Kaught Looking, and Ha with Fur Face Boy. The next event up for Million Monkey was the Low Low Car Show at Camargo Park at the end of March. It was at this event that I met 98.5 THE BEAT’s very own Xavier the Freakin Rican, freestyle genius Ray C, and DJ Robbie Rob. After this initial meeting Xavier, Ray C, and Robbie Rob have all showed Million Monkey love and support! At the Low Low Car Show I teamed up with the Audio Renegades to set up shop and network with customers and fans. Next up for Million Monkey was a month that saw me posted up in a hospital bed for a few days with surgery on my eye. Only good thing
