About the House

Since my humble beginnings as a street vendor on Broadway in November of 1989, House of Nubian has grown to become one of New York's premier Hip-Hop, Negro League, and Reggae one-stop shopping stores.

Over the years, we have learned that quality is the first thing to put into our goods. We use only the best quality merchandise.

All of our Negro League items are licensed by the surviving players of the league, which ensures that royalties are paid directly to actual players and their families. My father, Melvin McCray, was himself a Negro League baseball player and now President of The Surviving Players of the Negro League 1900-1950.

Browse through our online catalog. You don't have to be in New York to experience House of Nubian's unique style. This catalog is only a fraction of the goods we carry. If there is a specific item that you want, call us, we may have it.

As of 10/31/02, I had to close the retail store on West 8th street in order to devote more resources to this Web Site.

I wish to thank all the customers that have supported House of Nubian.
