Thanks to his laundry list of iconic rap tunes, Notorious B.I.G. will be forever remembered as one of the greatest hip hop artists to ever walk the planet. And in celebration of the 25th anniversary of his legendary “Ready to Die” album, as well as what would have been his 48th birthday this Thursday, FILA has decided to create a commemorative capsule in his honor. Alongside a full apparel range is a duo of special Biggie x FILA Tennis 88 footwear renditions. Serving as updated version to the Original Tennis model that sparked popularity for the Sportswear brand amongst the Brooklyn community in the 90s, the kicks pay tribute to the late rapper through dual branded tongues that print out the number 25 just beneath its crown insignias, the famous baby photo from the album art translated onto the footbeds, as well as the words “Ready To Die” embroidered on the heel counter. Two colorways including a cream/red as well as a white/aqua blue are set to release first on FILA.com on May 19th, and at additional retailers on May 21st for $90 a piece.

For other news, the Air Jordan 4 SP is dropping in two colorways this Fall.
