Raekwon has teamed up with streetwear brand Sprayground to release an Only Built 4 Cuban Linx-inspired backpack in honor of the classic LP’s 25th anniversary. “The Purple Tape” bag is fittingly designed with purple outer skin and lyrics from The Chef’s debut album.
“This collaboration has been iconic for me,” Sprayground founder and creative director David Ben David said in a press release. “I grew up listening to Wu-Tang, so this is pretty surreal! I loved tapping into the last two decades of content from him to bring this bag to life and really show Raekwon’s unique style. Super excited to share this one with the fans.”
Raekwon added, “I have been a buyer of Sprayground for a long time and admire David’s work. To get the opportunity to collaborate with a talented team of designers and build a bag that encompasses me is so dope. Looking forward to seeing it on the streets!”
“The Purple Tape” backpack officially goes on sale on Thursday (July 23). The bag will be available for $100 via Sprayground’s website.
