- Fashion Brand Founded by Nipsey Hussle to Release Limited Edition Playable NFTs in Unconventional Play-to-Earn Game Blankos Block Party
Since Marathon Clothing and Blankos announced their collaboration back in June, the wait is finally over for players – as the collab has officially landed. According to the announcement, The Marathon Collection includes two unique Blankos characters, along with two new accessories.
- TMC Crenshaw Blanko: This limited-edition Blanko pays homage to the iconic yellow and blue “Crenshaw” crewneck that launched The Marathon Clothing. (available for $65, with a time-limited sale from 3 p.m. PST to 3:10 PST).
- TMC Stealth Blanko: Duck the haters and look good doing it. The TMC Stealth Blanko features a custom blacked-out Crenshaw fit with reflective accents. (available for $65, with a time-limited sale from 3:20 p.m. PST to 3:40 p.m. PST).
- TMC Flag Bucket Hat: Show your hustle in this iconic piece of headwear available exclusively from TMC, available in Red or Stealth colorways. ($20, with 1500 of each color available).
Having been previously created by the late rapper and entrepreneur – Nipsey Hussle – and carried on by his family, TMC is the latest in a growing line-up of fashion companies that have taken to Blankos for launching its own NFTs. Previously, Burberry struck up a deal with the team in order to create and sell its own fashionable ‘Sharky B’ NFT.
“We at The Marathon Clothing are excited to be a part of this collab,” said Samiel Asghedom. “This NFT collection is definitely something that Nipsey Hussle would have been a part of. His forward-thinking and his love for innovation kept him at the forefront of all new technology. The family is honored to continue moving the brand further down the path he paved.
