Slick Rick, BUA & New Wave Collab Pays Tribute To The Iconic M90 Boombox

New Wave is paying homage to hip-hop history with a limited edition collaboration between its M90 Big Power mini Bluetooth speakers and two trailblazers: the legendary MC Slick Rick and acclaimed urban artist BUA. The iconic M90 boombox is one of the most recognizable portable stereos from the early ’80s, earning the nickname “The King of Boomboxes.”

It’s also an important part of early hip-hop and b-boy culture, providing a soundtrack to the streets that defined a movement. The M90 MINI and MICRO Blaster Artists Series BUA & Slick Rick are now available to pre-order on New Wave from now until November 11 at a promotional discount of $149.99 and $49.99, respectively.

This special edition of the M90 Big Power speakers adds additional flair to New Wave’s meticulously engineered Bluetooth speakers, including boombox design and packaging artwork by BUA, striking purple and gold accents, exclusive Slick Rick audio prompts, and more.
