The “Free Kodak Black” tee is now available for pre-order at flysupplykodak.com for $25. However, the price of the shirt will go up to $35 after Friday (Aug. 5). The T-shirt will be release on Aug. 19.
According to Fly Supply reps, the shirts represent a movement that’s protesting against the criminal justice system that’s failing black youth.
“This movement is bigger than rap,” reads a statement on the website. “This movement is bigger than t-shirts. This movement is to demonstrate the power of music, people and independent entrepreneurialism coming together to do something positive in an attempt of making an impact on a failed system.
“Far too often, we’re quick to berate those that make mistakes, kicking them down instead of helping them up. Sadly, this is the society we live in today. But by supporting this movement, you’re helping to spark some much-needed change, and provide some support for a young black man caught in the grips of the institution who can maybe help bring on that change, once his potential is fully realized. He’s a product of his environment, one in which the chance of escape is slim to none; and he’s also the voice of a people who share similar circumstances. Let’s make sure his voice is heard.”
Recently, DJ Khaled rocked the “Free Kodak Black” tee on his Snapchat channel.
Before his arrest, the 2016 XXL Freshman Class inductee garnered a huge buzz with his cameo appearance on French Montana’s street banger “Lockjaw.” Currently, Black has a new mixtape called Lil B.I.G Pac that’s available for streaming and downloading at DatPiff.com.
