Nipsey Hussle Takes Legal Action Over 'Unauthorised' Colab

Date: February 16 2018

Nipsey Hussle is saying that Reebok’s recently announced colab with him is an ‘unauthorised’ cash grab that exploits LA gang culture.

The sneaker in question is the Crip-inspired Classic Nylon we featured yesterday. While we questioned the motives behind Reebok releasing a Rollin 60s pair when their work with Kendrick centred on unity, a new YG colab coloured red for the Piru Bloods, and released alongside a song called ‘Su Woo’, seemed to even things out. However, given this tweet from Hussle, the whole project could get canned.

Hussle would also like everyone to know that legal action was not an idle threat, expounding on his qualms with Reebok and their use of his name to profit off Crip iconography.

Reebok are yet to respond, and so far the sneakers are still set to release on February 17. We’ll let you know after the weekend how it all plays out.
