With all of the young artists in the hip-hop game releasing sneaker collabs, it’s no wonder that some of the OG’s are looking to get in on the fun.

So move over, Drake, Kanye, Pusha T, and Frank Ocean, because Raekwon wants a piece of the sneaker pie.

In honor of the 20th anniversary of Raekwon’s solo album ‘Only Built 4 Cuban Linx,’ which released on purple cassette tapes, Packer Shoes and Diadora have teamed up for a special edition sneaker.

The Raekwon x Packer Shoes x Diadora N.9000 come fully decked out in a purple suede, as a nod to the aforementioned tapes, with the the album’s tracks stamped on the insole, ‘1995’ stitched onto the lower ankle, and ‘1’ & ‘2’ stitched onto the heel as a tribute to each side of the iconic tape.

The collaborative kicks will officially launch on August 20th, at S.O.B’s in New York City, prior to his concert.
