Nas is hopping on the ugly Christmas sweater bandwagon for a good cause.
This holiday season, the veteran MC launched the “Kneeling Santa” crew neck sweater by his clothing brand HSTRY. Available in red, black, and green, proceeds for the special edition sweater will go to a non-profit called Center for Court Innovation, which “seeks to help create a more effective and humane justice system,” according to the organization’s website.
St. Nick’s kneeling position seems to be a nod to San Francisco 49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, and his controversial decision to kneel during the national anthem at NFL games in an effort to protest police brutality.
Nas joins other rappers including Drake, Kanye West, Gucci Mane, and 2 Chainz, who have previously released a line of Christmas sweaters.
