Long before purple drank became a thing, there was the Purple Tape. As Raekwon's groundbreaking Only Built 4 Cuban Linx LP celebrates its 20th anniversary, it looks like Packer Shoes and Diadora are cooking up something marvelous.

The New Jersey-based sneaker store took to its social media to tease this upcoming Diadora N.9000 collaboration. We can't see much other than a plush suede tongue and a tri-branded label inspired by the Parental Advisory sticker that was commonplace on '90s hip-hop releases, but it's a safe bet that this will be one of the year's dopest collabs. 

Check back soon for the full look and details on this insane collab.
