Flavor Flav used to introduce his Public Enemy songs with a nasal, ‘Yeah Boy!’ French emcee Dabaaz turned it into ‘Yeah Poy!’ as a private joke with his friends. And if boys are poyz, then girls have to be pirlz. Thus Poyz And Pirlz was born.

The guys started to organize huge parties in Paris, which quickly became famous for the good vibes and old school hip hop spirit. They also launched a series of t-shirts mixing references to old school movies, classic hip-hop lines, 80s TV series. The t shirt series was a blast, with lines like ‘Girls Love Nerds but Fuck Gangsta’ or ‘My homies are the Goonies’. They now produce a new collection every two months.
