Tupac Estate And Marvel Connect For Special ‘Black Panther’ Clothing Collection
The estate of Tupac Shakur and Marvel’s Black Panther have come together for a special capsule kids are sure to enjoy.
Announced Friday (Nov. 9), the rapper’s fallen estate has partnered with Marvel comics for the collection titled POP by Foot Locker. Available only at Foot Locker, the nine-piece shirt collection features short and long sleeve tops as well as sweatshirts that mesh the designs commonly associated with the Blockbuster smash and images of late rapper’s name and face.
In a statement to VIBE, Paul Gitter, SVP of Marvel Licensing spoke on the unusual but fitting pairing. “The intersection of music and Black Panther is such a vital part of that property, so it is fantastic to co-brand with an influential artist like 2Pac on a new collection of Marvel apparel,” he said.
The clothing line is reasonably priced between $25 for teeshirts and $50 for sweatshirts and hoodies. The Shakur estate recently obtained legal rights to his unreleased music, as well as a six-figure settlement for unpaid royalties at the beginning of October.
The “California Love” rapper’s handwritten notes were also donated to Temple University earlier this week (Nov. 5).
