Hold your tears though — It’s not over yet. Going forward, Vita-Morte will be simply known as VITA. In memory of Vita-Morte, the brand is releasing one last small collection — the Rest In Peace collection. The collection features two new tees, which you can get a look at above and below the jump.
Read Vita-Morte’s ‘eulogy’ below and be sure to cop the tees online here or in-store at Fat Tiger Workshop.
Dear Friends and Family,
We’ve had some really amazing and memorable years with Vita Morte as a brand but now we feel like it’s finally time to shut the brand down because me and Joe are moving to Los Angeles to pursue our dreams……Naaaah, I’m just fucking with you but we are making some major changes to the brand. We’ve come too far and progressed so much that it would be a shame to simply throw all of that away by killing the brand. Vita Morte is something that we started back when we were shorties in high school so naturally we knew there would come a time where we had to sit down and re-tool the concept of the brand. As we’ve grown, so have our ideas. With that said, we feel like it’s essential to drop “Morte/DEATH” from the name of the brand. We want to make sure we have a brand that’s filled with nothing but good vibes; from the name, to the concepts. Also, being from Chicago, we don’t want to have the word “Death” in the name of our brand.

Again, it’s not the South Central Cartel, it’s the Second City Citizens. There’s plenty of room for SCC’s nowadays. And today they return with a wild, wild western titled “Tres Amigos.” Cowboys, sheriffs, moonshine — it’s like “Ghetto Cowboy” but better. Check it out above.
21 new instrumental tracks from Chicago producer Sani. That’s over a half an hour of free beats for you to take advantage of. Why are you still rapping over “0-100″ when you can tackle these gems?
Enter the Genesis below.
After a year of building, now feels like the appropriate time to reveal the workings of this new style of production being developed. I wanted to expose the epitome of an Hedonist. These instrumentals were formed to represent beliefs (1-7), reflections (8-15), and marvels (16-21) envisioned from the grisailles of my subconscious. From now on, this sound shall truly become noticeable.
