New York-based clothing company Milkcrate Athletics has announced its latest collaboration, this time with Interscope Records. The veteran line created by deejay/producer Aaron Lacrate plays off of the label symbol, and vintage test-pressing logo from vinyl. At Summer Jam, Black Hippy’s Jay Rock and Kendrick Lamar, signed to Interscope, helped model the line.

This follows Milkcrate’s collaborations with Mobb Deep, Pete Nice and others.
