Raekwon Is Releasing a Snow Beach-Inspired Jacket to Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of "The Purple Tape"

Twenty years ago, Raekwon dropped his debut solo albumOnly Built 4 Cuban Linx, sometimes also referred to as "The Purple Tape." Twenty years, damn. To celebrate, the rapper and member of the almighty Wu-Tang Clan, is releasing a jacket inspired by something equally as familiar. 

The Linx Beach jacket, made in collaboration with Raekwon's company CL95 Inc.takes cues from Polo Ralph Lauren's iconic Snow Beach jacket, which Rae wore in the "Can It Be So Simple" video, and arguably made popular. 

The Linx Beach jacket, priced at $599, is available for pre-order at now. Orders will ship Aug. 1.
