Aside from dropping a lyric video to celebrate the release of “Leader of the Delinquents,” Kid Cudi has also prepared a concise merchandise release for his first solo track since December 2016.

For the monumental drop, Cudi tapped longtime friend Virgil Abloh to help out on the design side of things. The Off-White™ founder/Creative Director and Louis Vuitton Men’s Artistic Director focused on an exclusive T-shirt centered around an infamous Kid Cudi moment.

The Kid Cudi c/o Virgil Abloh “Pulling Strings” T-Shirt features a sketch by Abloh that references when Cudi playfully expressed his displeasure to tabloid news website TMZ back in 2012. On the back of the shirt is a title of the track scrawled reminiscent of Jean-Michel Basquiat’s text style. Other merch offerings come in the form of limited edition pressings of the “Leader Of The Delinquents” single on 7” vinyl, 12” picture disc and cassette with the artwork from Virgil.

Catch the lyric video below and head over to Kid Cudi’s website to shop Kid Cudi c/o Virgil Abloh “Pulling Strings” T-Shirt and accompanying merch.
