The Danish designer, Patso Dimitrov, is at it again. And by “it,” I mean designing dope hip-hop-inspired basketball jerseys.
Dimitrov originally tackled basketball jerseys in November of 2015, working with promising young designer and underground rap sensation Kanye West on West’s Yeezy Season 1 NBA jerseys. They created three jerseys for that project, and it seems as if Dimitrov left the project with more ideas in mind. He followed up his work with West by seeking inspiration from other rappers, borrowing from their album artwork and thematic elements of the album. The first round of jerseys included one for Chance the Rapper’s Acid Rap, Drake’s If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late and Born Sinner by J. Cole.
Now he’s back with the second installment of his Rap Album Covers x Basketball Jerseys line. Round two features more killer jerseys, with albums like 50 Cent’s Get Rich or Die Tryin’, Clipse’s Lord Willin’ and Drake’s Nothing was the Same included. And while all are pretty sick, a couple stick out.
