For the past few years, Christmas sweaters have come to the fore in holiday fashion. Many companies/organizations have used the “ugly Christmas sweater” theme to create new product. Now, hip-hop-icon-turned-venture-capitalist Nas joins rappers such as 2 Chainz, Kanye West, Gucci Mane and Fetty Wap to come out with his own Christmas sweater design.
Of course, Esco’s sweaters–produced and distributed by his HSTRY clothing line–are more woke than most. They feature a Black Santa Claus, kneeling (a la San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick). Even more woke, the sweaters come in variations of red, black and green, the colors of the Pan-African/Black Nationalist flag. Furthermore, according to HSTRY’s site:
A portion of proceeds will go to The Center for Court Innovation, which seeks to help create a more effective and humane justice system, reducing both crime and incarceration.
Nas’ Kneeling Santa sweaters can be found on HSTRY’s official website. They are selling for $45 a pop. Check them out below:
