Guess The Vinyl!


Alright Gritty Soul family, we are testing your "Vintage I.Q."!  

Each of our vinyl record jewelry pieces are made from real vinyl records.  At times, we we mark which album made the cut!  So take the quiz and use the clues to Guess The Vinyl!  

And remember, if you've already purchased your vinyl record jewelry, your jewelry is complemented with 14K gold plating, but treat your jewelry as you would treat your vinyl records at home.

Test Your Fashion I.Q. Who Wore These 5 Outfits?!?

Okay people, we want to see how many of you can actually recognize an artist just based on their outfits alone. Now before you get all confident and think this is about to be a breeze think again, because you may get one or two of these wrong, but then again, you may not because you're just cold-blooded like that! Go 'head and get started on your Fashion IQ quiz below... 

Whoever doesn't get this right, needs to go back and listen to a minimum of 42 80's R&B records!  LOL!  

If you don't get this one, you've been living under a rock for like the past 30 years! 

For this one, if you don't get it right, you should watch at least 52 episodes of Video Soul just to familiarize yourself with the soul music art form because you clearly have to start from scratch.

This one's only for the true music lovers! Soul, funk, or whatever floats your boat, you gotta know this artist! 

Ok, this one might get a little difficult for our family that's 50 or older, but just to give you a hint...Heyyyy ya!

[VIDEO] WTH? Can You Imagine Marvin Gaye Doing This For Motown?!?

In the past, Epic Records signed artists like Luther Vandross, MJ, Patti LaBelle and NOW THIS!!! Okay people, this is the introduction to our “What The Hell Wednesdays” weekly video posts that we will bring to you every Wednesday and we came across the perfect video to kick this thing off.

All of us over here at Gritty Soul and I Love Old School Music watched this video of Epic Records’ rap artist, Bobby Shmurda. This brotha is presenting his songs to a conference room full of conservative, suit and tie attired Epic Record execs. Sounds harmless enough, doesn’t it?  Well after we watched it, we couldn't imagine Smokey Robinson or The Supremes doing this for Berry Gordy and the rest of the Motown staff! There’s NO WAY we would have ever heard from ANY of them had they done so! 

Check out the video…


This story is fitting to introduce Gritty Soul Apparel, the message is simple, Pay Homage or Pay The Price. This video is a clear example of the price that our youth is paying right now, because record labels like Epic Records now clearly have different intentions.

We’re extremely passionate about keeping the Old School era and the days of integrity alive. So it’s bigger than a clothing line, it’s a movement that needs to be heard. Watch the video below.
