Raekwon x packer x Diadora N9000 "Purple tape" European release.

by Henrik Buzzi


Packer shoes teamed up with Diadora and Raekwon in the celebration of the 20th Anniversary of Raekwon's debut album "Only Built 4 Cuban Linx..." Aside from cementing its place as one of the greatest albums of all-time, upon its release fans were instantly drawn to the mystique of the clear purple hue of the original cassette tape version of the the album and has since become commonly referred to as “The Purple Tape”. This purple marking was done intentionally to reference the marketing strategy adopted by neighborhood dealers of tagging their product in order to distinguish it from that of others. European release is set to Saturday at selected retailers. So good luck to all of you.
