Xxxtentacion Scorpion Merch

Xxxtentacion has been on the road to success for quite a while. Recently he released his fifth album, “Scorpion”. With his fifth consecutive number one album in the US, Aubrey Graham proved to the world that he is the king of Rap. His follow-up tour, “Aubrey and the Three Migos Tour”, happened to be one of the highest-grossing Hip-hop tours of all time.

Through a new Instagram page, the Canadian rapper presented his Scorpion line merch, shortly after. It was available for sale for two days at the SSENSE MONTREAL. The exclusive collection consisted of eight limited-edition pieces – tracksuits, T-shirts, a cap, as well as other ready-to-wear pieces

The quintessential parts of the collection are the plain revenge cool hoodies and tracksuit. They come in grey and feature the signature Scorpion branding. The corresponding design of the cap completes the full set and is an easy collectible for every fan. There are also matching windbreaker bottom and top tracksuit set in all black with discrete Scorpion North American Tour 2018 brandings. The toned down black sweatshirt with the Coldblood branding delivers a classic long-sleeve to the Xxxtentacion stans.

The tees have interesting designs, as there is a special T-shirt dedicated to the “In My Feelings” track, which cracked the charts and quickly became a breakthrough hit song. The piece features a “Keke” encircled by a shiny heart on the front and a “Down for you always” and a scorpion branding on the back. The Scorpion World Tour T-shirt featured artwork which corresponds to the album’s one.  The leafy-green font of the text graphics really add a thing or two to the design, as all tour dates are printed on the back side.

The more notable pieces include a Scorpion revenge hoodie with a big blue scorpio print on the back, a creamy-blue T-shirt with the same Scorpion logo on the front, as well as shorts to commemorate the North America Tour 2018. But the headliner was a completely different piece.

It was actually a shiny coach jacket with the typical branding for the merch. What was extremely unique for this piece of merchandise was that it could be purchased with a personalized “Executive Produced By” name. This was the same jacket that Xxxtentacion and his longtime producer, “40”, wore before the album dropped. Since then, it has been spotted on the backs of popular figures like the NBA draftee Trae Young, the star from Stranger Things, Bobby Brown and DJ Khaled, as well.

The collection was further expanded with the addition of a new capsule in collaboration with the notorious Atlanta-based Magic City strip club, called Scorpion City. The capsule consists of joggers, long-sleeves, tees, shorts and revenge hoodies, all implementing elements from both brands. There are a few pieces with a green fluorescent printings. Probably the most notable piece of all is the “Magic City Scorpion” sweat which features the album’s artwork.

All in all, 2018 has been a huge year for Drizzy and like everything else that he touches, his merch line has also been successful. Even though the price point from Cool Hoodies is really high and most pieces are very overpriced, Xxxtentacion managed to deliver a product with a huge demand for it.
