Designer PVTSO Creates NBA Jerseys Inspired By Rap Albums

Creative designer Patso Dimitrov, PVTSO, has already shown his love of the relationship between rap and the NBA in his Yeezy Season 1 NBA Jerseys.  But, this time around he decided to take things even further by blending some of his favorite rap albums into concepts for NBA team jerseys.

While he covered everyone from J. Cole to Drake even Freddie Gibbs has an inspired unit, we hope to see more of these roll out as the season progresses but this is a nice starting 5. The two worlds of hip hop and hoops will forever be tied to each other (even recently Cavalier guard Iman Shumpert dropped a music video) so it’s always dope to see creatives paint their version of rap being a sport.

Check out the jerseys below and be sure to hit us on Twitter (@SwaysUniverse) to let us know which one you’re feeling most.
