The Notorious B.I.G. to Be Honored With New Brooklyn Nets City Edition Uniform
The NBA has started to unveil their City Edition uniforms for early November. Today (Oct. 24), the Brooklyn Nets' City Edition jersey was revealed and it features a stunning tribute to the late rapper The Notorious B.I.G.
The City Edition jerseys are created with fans in mind to honor the team's hometown. This year, the Brooklyn jersey features the classic Coogi sweater design that Biggie was known for wearing during his prime. The colors around the trim are yellow, blue, red, orange and black. Reporter Anthony Puccio shared a tweet of the jersey. "Told these are indeed Brooklyn's City Edition Jersey's... Thoughts?" he wrote.
This isn't the first time that the "Juicy" rapper has been honored with fashion as of late. On Oct. 8, Barneys began selling all-back Versace shades as a tribute to Biggie, who wore those shades almost all the time. The sunglasses are being sold for $295.
In other Biggie news, a movie about his murder investigation, City of Lies, was recently pulled from production. The film was supposed to touch on the unsolved hip-hop murder mysteries of both Biggie and Tupac Shakur. Johnny Depp, who was intended to play LAPD Detective Russell Poole, allegedly attacked a crew member while on set, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
