No.196 : Ghostface Killah x Extra Butter x Asics Gel-Lyte MT Gas Mask

Maybe it’s the ostrich leather, maybe it’s the quilting on the toe box or the sock liner, maybe it’s the gum sole, maybe it’s the burgundy. It’s definitely because one of my all time favorite lyricists is behind the cook up.

The mask ties in Iron Man inspirations because of GFK’s alter ego, Tony Starks as well as the gas mask – not only because it’s a constant theme in my work but referring to ‘Emergency Procedure’ off his 36 Seasons album. Up top you’ll see a gold eagle because… well shiiit y’all should know that by now.

Heard he had to take it off, the shit kept biting him.

I haven’t photographed the mask modeled yet. I’m holding out hope that maybe I get GFK himself to wear it for a shoot. We’ll see…

In the mean time I reached out to an artist that I’m a big fan of – Chris B. Murray. I commissioned him to illustrate the GFK mask in his ‘Rap Kings’ style, and hell, you can see why below. Make sure you give him a follow on IG (@chrisbmurray) and check out his store CBMArtworks.storenvy.com (HINT: PRINTS!)
