Sprayground drops collaboration backpack with iconic Wu-Tang Clan member and hip hop phenomenon Raekwon the Chef.
The bag design celebrates the 25th anniversary of Raekwon’s solo debut album ‘Only Built 4 Cuban Linx’, and emcompasses lyrics from the album, a transparent purple outer skin, as well as Sprayground’s well-known and original collectible art, ‘shark mouth’ feature.
For this latest collaboration, Sprayground worked very closely with Raekwon to create ‘The Purple Tape’ bag, to help kids out with their travel swag!
Raewkon, said: “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!”
Founder and creative director, David Ben David said, “This collaboration has been iconic for me, 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. ”
The limited collection backpack became available on July 23rd at www.sprayground.com.
