The iconic artwork for this mini-collection (which features a t-shirt, hoody, crewneck, satin bomber jacket and a New Era snapback cap) was created by NY-based graphic designer Bill McMullen (also see his legendary album covers for Def Jam!), who also collaborated with K1X in the creation of the infamous 4-E basketball series.
The “Blackboard” is half black power fist, half basketball backboard. A critical reference to the correlation between the African American struggle for political equality – and today’s (professional) basketball culture. Or… just a really dope design, that symbolizes the mighty power of basketball. Nation of Hoop represent!
