For its latest collection, cult-favorite label Supreme has teamed up with hip-hop duo dead prez. Featuring rappers M-1 and stic.man, the music duo attended the HBCU Florida A&M University in Tallahassee, Florida in 1990, and later moved to New York to further their career. Throughout the years, the two have focused on socio-political ideology as well as community-building messages, and have been working towards making music a bigger platform for activism.
In 2000, dead prez released their debut album Let’s Get Free and gained international attention through their lyrics covering everything from racism and inequality to police injustice and corporate manipulation. The album is to this day regarded as one of the most radical albums in rap history, and have made an impact on the industry as a whole. “When you talk about growing, expanding and awakening, it allows you to open up like a lotus to all the things that are here in the world,” said M-1.
The collection with Supreme features artwork from Let’s Get Free as well as Revolutionary But Gangsta, across pieces like quilted workwear jackets, hoodies, sweatpants and T-shirts, as well as accessories like five-panel caps and bandanas.
If you’re looking to get your hands on the Supreme x dead prez Fall 2019 collection, the range will be available at Supreme’s New York, Brooklyn, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London and Paris stores starting on December 5, as well as online. As usual, the collaboration will drop in Japan two days later, on December 7.
