Nas Supports Youth In Launch Of Black History Month Clothing Collection

Rapper Nas honors Black History Month and shows his devotion to black youth through the launch of his new clothing collection. Back in November he launched a line of ugly Christmas sweaters in support of prison reform. Both collections were produced by his clothing brand HSTRY.

The street wear collection features graphic t-shirts, sweat shirts, dashikis, and accessories designed with written slogans “Black Don’t Crack”, “Know Your History”, and “I’m Black and I’m Proud”. In relation to the kids, the t-shirts feature pro black versions of cartoon characters from Charlie Brown, The Simpsons, and The Pink Panther. A portion of each sale will go in donation to the National Black Child Development Institute.

Nas tells the Huffington Post “I used to low-key cringe when Black History Month came around. It felt like a slap in face with all the Hell we catch daily… Like a small reward for a dog’s good behavior, then back to the kennel. But I’ll take it. I’ll take what I can get and that’s all I need to go to new heights.” Well, Nas is definitely pushing forward in the right direction. Check out the full collection here.
