strict Rastafarian upbringing, Huston was only permitted to listen
to reggae music and was unable to cut his dreadlocks.

THE COMPETITION HISTORY
L&l is a trademark. l&I was a short-lived company and operated for
approximately two years with a team that consisted of Huston,
Richard Jefferson, and Anthony Williams. During the period of the
company's existence, a number of magazine advertisements were
published and an online promotional video that featured the three
team members was released. The primary aesthetic influence of the
brand was Rastafarinism and the I&I logo incorporated the pan-
African colors of red, yellow, and green.
