Supreme collaborations keep coming. The latest, however, pays tribute to hip-hop’s early days, but specifically: Houston label, Rap-A-Lot Records.
Supreme has teamed up with the iconic Southern rap label for a collection of apparel.
Created in 1987 by J. Prince, Rap-A-Lot Records put the spotlight on Houston rap in 1990s, introducing acts like the Geto Boys, consisting of Scarface, Bushwick Bill and Willie D — which is highlighted throughout the collection.
For the collection, Supreme pulled the classic cover art from Geto Boys’ 1991 album, We Can’t Be Stopped, which features Bill on a gurney and hospital gown with a gunshot wound to his eye. It’s used on a number of pieces in the capsule, which also includes a satin club jacket, hooded sweater, 5-panels, beanies, graphic tees, and a pillow.
The Rap-A-Lot Records x Supreme collection drops April 6th at Supreme’s New York, Los Angeles, London and Paris locations, as well as its online store. Japan gets the release on April 8.
