In his career, Modu has captured the steady rise of hip-hop culture and, with it, some of the genre’s most famous figures, including Biggie, Tupac, Nas, ODB, and others. The images on display in Berlin feature those artists alongside never-before-seen images from the artist’s archives.
The clothes, meanwhile, allow music and visual-arts fans alike to take home a dope slice of hip-hop history. The small capsule includes a hoodie and T-shirt baring Modu shots of New York’s Biggie Smalls and West Coast legend Tupac Shakur.
“I wanted to create something that is the opposite of putting labels on everything and make a statement against stereotyping,” Modu explains. “My work does not fit into any one stereotype and neither do I.”
The Chi Modu x INAN capsule is available to cop now. The Biggie tee is €79 (approximately $92) and the Tupac hoodie is €119 (approximately $139).
