Detroit rapper Marshall Mathers, aka Eminem, has teamed up with the Detroit Tigers on multiple occasions for pretty cool jersey ideas.
Slim Shady is also a big fan of the Lions. In the past, he has talked about the team. In 2012, he said he was a huge fan of what Matthew Stafford did the year before. “F***, man, if you look at Stafford—this was his first full season. 5,000 yards! He did some incredible s***, and I can’t grasp how he got left off the Pro Bowl team for Eli Manning,” he said in a GQ interview.
He even posed with former Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson for the cover of ESPN The Magazine.
Wednesday afternoon, Mr. Mathers tweeted out his collaboration with the Detroit Lions on a new T-shirt.
“You know I had to collab with the @Lions! Limited edition and available for a short time only,” he said in his tweet.
The shirt is available for $25 through http://collabs.teespring.com/NFL/. Other people who have paired up with a NFL team are ZZ Top (Houston Texans), Wale (Washington Redskins) and Kiss (New York Jets) are the most notable artists.
According to the website:
For the first time ever, a select group of artists have joined forces with the NFL, each representing their favorite team and city through unique, official NFL gear. These limited edition shirts are perfect for NFL fans to show their pride in their city’s football and music. These will be available for a short time only and after that, they’ll never be sold again.
Do you want one of these shirts? $25 isn’t that bad of a price.
