Shocklee, one of the founding members of The Bomb Squad and Public Enemy, is a recent heart attack survivor. This came as a surprise, Shocklee has worked with many artists such as Janet Jackson, LL Cool J, Pharrell, and Ziggy Marley who all expressed their concern. After heart surgery, he urges others to listen to their bodies. Don Mateo is a luxury urban brand that is not stranger to advocating for good causes. The designer feels honored to be apart of something so powerful and looks forward to more.
Heart Disease is the leading cause of death in both men and women in the United States, The disease claims over 600,000 lives each year. Awareness has to be increased for something so prevalent."
