Pop Pins was founded by Devine Bailey to celebrate Black pop culture. If you're looking to wear your favorite R&B + Hip Hop artist, Pop Pins is your one-stop shop. I personally love the Prolific Pin which depicts the late Nipsey Hussle. Bailey has created various pins of public figures that have passed away, & what better way to commemorate their life by wearing a pin of their likeness. Keep Black pop culture alive with Pop Pins.
