Black Scale is resurrecting an late great king with its latest collection—the legendary Pimp C. The official collaboration, and the brand's trillest to date, was curated by Pimp C's wife Chinara Butler and Shalimar Media Group. It was received the stamp of approval by fellow UGK co-founder Bun B. Black Scale recently shared on its blog that everyone at the brand has been fans of Pimp C and UGK for years, so they wanted to do the collection the right way and "give back to the estate."
The full collection intertwines Black Scale's signature dark visuals with images that pay homage to the southern rap pioneer. There are five T-shirts, one longsleeve tee, and two snapbacks. An airbrushed image of Pimp C wearing Black Scale's flag appears on one shirt, while another promotes a Styrofoam Black Scale cup filled with the rapper's favorite purple drank. Additional highlights include "R.I.P. Pimp C" snapbacks and shirts that read, "Land of the Trill." The official Black Scale x Pimp C collaboration comes out tomorrow, Aug. 9 at Black Scale SF, NY, L.A., Tokyo, and online.
