Brooklyn rapper Joey Bada$$ teams up with Akomplice and the J Dilla Foundation in the name of music. The upcoming collection reveals unreleased music including Dilla’s “Two Lips” on Side A and Joey Bada$$’ track over the beat on “Side B”. With 100 per cent of the profits donated to youth music initiatives, the collaboration gives back to the community. The collection also includes a T-shirt and crew neck that pay homage to J Dilla, with the producer’s face printed across both of the dope articles of clothing. The limited capsule collection will be available in 29 countries at select Akomplice retailers starting November 29. Can’t reach the store? It’s also available online in the Akomplice web store.
