It’s almost been a year since the passing of A$AP mob founder A$AP Yams and the Hip-Hop community is still in mourning. The loyalty from his crew keeps holding true as A$AP Ferg has now come together with sneaker brand Adidas to create a special tribute collection to honor the young mogul who’s life was gone too soon. The collection dubbed, Trap Lord Adi-Ease Collection (with adidas Skateboarding) features new long and short-sleeve tees as well as sneakers. The line will launch December 5th at participating retailers and online stores.
adidas continue their work with various hip-hop artists, this time around linking with A$AP Ferg of New York’s A$AP Mob. The Traplord x Adi-Ease collection features a series of T-shirts as well as two colorways of the Adi-Ease sneaker.
The majority of the range was designed to honor Ferg’s friend and A$AP Mob creator, A$AP Yams, who passed away earlier this year. The drop centers around a painting by Ferg that pays homage to Yams.
The Adi-Ease sneaker comes optioned in black as well as tan, being predominantly done up in suede. Signature Traplord accents have been implemented throughout the low-tops which feature satin lining and come equipped with printed laces. Ferg’s Hood Pope graphic is also present, alongside a painting of Yams on the sockliner.
The Traplord x adidas Yams T-Shirt is Ferg’s tribute to his fallen brother. Yams is highlighted on the long-sleeved tee, holding the world in his arms. The yellow beam that is being projected from his eyes represents the vision that Yams had for hip-hop and the world, while the buildings in the background are a nod to their home city of NYC.
In addition to the Adi-Ease drops and the Yams tee, there will also be three additional Traplord x adidas T-shirts releasing.
