“And now I’ve been wearing Converse for years, so I’d love to do a real Converse colab. I did a spray on some Converse for Hennessy and got criticised for that.

Motherfuckers got a dope box, they got the bottle and the sneakers for free! Of the 420,000 bottles that were made, that package was for the first 200 (numbered bottles). ”
