Continuing with its BAPE HEADS-inspired collections, Wiz Khalifa is the latest rapper to be placed front and center in BAPE‘s newest capsule.

Similar to the brand’s BAPE Heads Show merch (which included cartoon iterations of Kid Cudi, Lil Yachty, Pusha T and Big Sean), the items in the collection will feature Wiz Khalifa made over in the same animation style originally drawn by designer MANKEY standing alongside BAPE’s lovable sidekick Baby Milo.

As showcased via the lookbook imagery, the capsule, also powered by Warner Music Artist Services, will include graphic hoodies, crewnecks and short-sleeved tees. A special Shark Face hoodie will also be included in the launch. In terms of design, the tees and hoodies feature Khalifa standing next to Milo while the other graphic is BAPE’s APE Head insignia sporting Khalifa’s dreads and a pair of white sunglasses. The Shark hoodie shares the same aforementioned APE HEAD decal on the back, while the hood is dressed in signature style: 1ST CAMO print and the letters “WGM” on the right and a tiger-printed “a” on the left.

Additionally a special Wiz Khalifa logo has been embellished on the back of the crewnecks and shirts, and placed on the left chest of the Shark Face hoodie.

Interested fans will be able to cop the Wiz Khalifa x BAPE capsule at BAPE retailers around the world and bape.com starting this Saturday, July 27. Prices will range from $115 USD (+ taxes) for the T-shirts to $465 USD (+ taxes) for the Shark Hoodie.

Check out a behind-the-scenes look at Wiz Khalifa’s photoshoot below.

For more collaborations, NEIGHBORHOOD and Anti Social Social Club debuted a logo-heavy collection.
