The skateboarding clothing brand Supreme just announced their new spring collaborations with hip-hop label Rap-a-lot Records from Houston, Texas. The Supreme x Rap-a-Lot Records line will feature t-shirts, hats and satin jackets with the Rap-a-lot logo but also hoodies with the album cover of the 1991 record We can’t be stopped by the Geto Boys.
The graphic image shows rapper Buschwick bleeding on a stretcher pushed by the two other members of the group, Scarface and Willie D. He had just lost his eye in a shooting during an altercation. In the early 90s, politicians condemned Gangster Rap and Horrorcore music. But this incident boosted the sales of their album.
The New York streetwear brand collaborated with several music icons before and featured them on their hoodies and t-shirts like Neil Young or Morissey and Gucci Mane as well as Slayer appeared in their ads. Just recently the brand got headlines because of the collabo with Lacoste and the drop of branded Metro line cards.
The Supreme x Rap-a-Lot Records collection will be released on April 6 in New York, LA, London and Paris as well as on the online shop.
