21 Savage, Smokepurpp and More Create Jerseys for World Cup Capsule Collection
Ahead of this weekend's World Cup Final between France and Croatia, Bleacher Report and some of today's biggest hip-hop artists have teamed up to create a special limited edition jersey capsule collection honoring the sport of soccer.
Released exclusively via the Bleacher Report website, the capsule features soccer jerseys from the likes of 21 Savage, Vic Mensa, YBN Nahmir, Smokepurpp, Vince Staples and The Roots. Paying homage to their respective hometowns, the jerseys embody each of the rapper's unique characteristics, their brand and their experience with soccer.
“I grew up playing soccer by way of my Ghanian father, so the sport is in my blood," Vic told BR. "I wanted to combine my experience with my love for the game to create something representing Chicago.” For 21, the Atlanta rapper wanted his jersey to feature his unique taste, "My brand is the dagger and Zone 6 4L, so I always rep both. I kept it simple and made sure the design represented me," said the "Bank Account" rapper.
The hip-hop-inspired soccer jerseys are now on sale for four days online at bleacherreport.com. Retailing for $80 each, the jerseys are said to be limited in quantities and available in sizes XS - 2XL.
In related Smokepurrp news, the Florida rapper's 2018 XXL Freshman cypher featuring Lil Pump and BlocBoy JB was recently launched on the publication's website.
