J Dilla FNDN x Akomplice x Joey Bada$$ 2013 Capsule Collection

Denver-based Akomplice gears up for yet another collaborative capsule, this time with J Dilla and rising rapper Joey Bada$$.

For the collection, Akomplice — who will donate 100% of the profits for instruments and music lessons to children who would otherwise be without — melds the posthumous talents of J Dilla (partnering with the J Dilla Foundation) with those of the burgeoning Brooklyn emcee, Joey Bada$$ for items will enable youth access to music.

Included within the release is a t-shirt and crew neck that pay homage to the late producer through an angelic cloud-graphic Dilla’s face cleanly printed across both. It also includes is a 45-inch record, exclusive to the capsule, which contains an unreleased Dilla beat dubbed “Two Lips” on Side A and an unreleased Joey Bada$$ track over the aforementioned beat on Side B.

“The concept of the project was to give the opportunity to a new young artist that never had the chance to work with Dilla. We thought Joey had an integrity that made him perfect for the project,” said Akomplice co-founder, Patrick Liberty.

Those fortunate enough to obtain “The Set” will be blessed with the J Dilla sublimation shirt, in which the cloud-graphic appears across the entire tee and a newspaper highlighted by a candid interview with Dilla’s mom, “Miss Yancey”, Joey Bada$$ and Akomplice co-owner, Patrick Liberty.

“This project has been a dream come true, working with the soul of my favorite producer of all time is an honor,” said Joey.

The limited J Dilla FNDN x Akomplice x Joey Bada$$ capsule collection will be available at select Akomplice retailers starting November 21st, as well as the brand’s online store.
