Alongside legions of his fans, I’m about halfway through Bobby Hundreds’ book This Is Not a T-Shirt. I picked it up on a whim and it has been refreshingly inspiring to me. I never was a streetwear kid growing up, but I was definitely surrounded by friends who were. The fact that Bobby is Korean American and also grew up in the same hometown as me also drew me into his story. I had no idea there was someone as cool as Bobby that came from Riverside.
These are 20 books that shaped my early twenties. Books that taught me something and improved my life in some way. Books that gave me the tools to change an inner narrative or gave me clarity into a different way of thinking.
