Chance the Rapper is showing off the fresh, new Chicago White Sox hat.
It’s no secret that Chance loves to rep Chi-Town, so it seems like a no-brainer that the cap-wearing rapper was tapped to redesign his hometown’s baseball hat in collaboration with New Era. The new design features the colors blue, grey and black with three different logos on-top in white.
Chance is also closing in on a brand ambassador deal with the team and so to celebrate the start of the 2016 MLB season–as well as the release of the limited-edition snapback–the 22-year-old rapper is scheduled to throw the first pitch at the home game on Friday (April 8).
This won’t be the first time that Chance was on the pitcher’s mound; he also threw the first pitch for the team in 2014 when the White Sox faced the San Diego Padres.
Afterwards, hopefully Chance will get back in the studio since his follow-up to Acid Rap is rumored to drop later this month. In the meantime, fans can snag a snapback with a retail price for $40-$45. But they better get them quick — there’s only 2,000 set to be for sale.
Now, we’ll be on the lookout for a Chicago Cubs re-design as well. Perhaps the team will reach out to Kanye West or Common? Either way, check out the video ad where Chance hilariously attempts to sell the hat above. Also, see some stills of the three hats below in Chance’s tweet.
