XXL Magazine Teams Up With Bape for Special 20th Anniversary Collaboration
XXL Magazine is celebrating 20 years of hip-hop on a higher level and to mark double decades of dominance, we’ve partnered with streetwear game-changers BAPE® for a commemorative T-shirt collaboration.
The 100 percent cotton T-shirt features XXL’s signature logo on the front emblazoned with traditional red BAPE® camouflage. “A BATHING APE®, XXL 20th Anniversary” appears under the recreated XXL logo. A Bathing Ape gifted XXL with these shirts as a congratulations for reaching 20 years in the game.
This collaboration is extremely limited, which means it won’t be available for sale to the public. However, XXL and BAPE are giving away a few shirts in a contest powered by Rafflecopter. For hypebeasts and real fans of the culture and XXL, this is a once-in-a-lifetime cop.
The rules for your chance to win a commemorative BAPE x XXL T-shirt are simple.

The BAPE x XXL collab comes on the heels of the XXL revealing its Fall 2017 cover stars featuring rappers who’ve helped shape the world of hip-hop over the past 20 years. In an unprecedented move, the artists on the 20th anniversary covers are Nicki Minaj, 50 Cent, Diddy, Wiz Khalifa, Cam’ron, Lil Uzi Vert, Migos, Snoop Dogg, Pusha T, Future, T.I., Fabolous, Rae Sremmurd, Birdman, Run The Jewels, Yo Gotti, Gucci Mane, Tech N9ne, E-40 and The Lox. Throughout the month of October, XXL will be dropping cover stories and video interviews for each artist. So stay tuned to Oct. 2 when those cover stories kick off. One loyal, lucky XXL fan will also have the chance to win all 20 of the printed covers by entering our covers contest. More details about that here.
Like XXL, A BATHING APE® is known for being down for the culture since its inception. First founded in 1993, BAPE has been known to fit some of rap’s hosted acts—from Kanye West, Lil Wayne and The Clipse to Future, Migos and Lil Yachty—and lead the way in streetwear fashion as it has converged with the hip-hop world. Don’t be surprised if you spot your favorite rapper in a BAPE x XXL Magazine anniversary t-shirt soon.
Celebrate XXL Magazine’s 20th anniversary with us and a big thank you to BAPE for this commemorative collab.
