As previously reported, the X Label has teamed up with Listen clothing to establish the G.U.R.U. apparel line with a collection of T-shirts honoring the late rapper Keith "Guru" Elam of Gang Starr.
A selection of new T-shirts from the "Summer 2011" MC Keithy E Collection were posted on the X Label's blog with no additional information provided. Among them:
The "MC of the Year" shirt, which boasts "MC Keithy E" handwritten in graffiti.
The "Stars Above" olive-colored tee features a star wrapped in chains, which symbolizes the Gang Starr brand.
The "Ill Kid Records" T-shirt represents Guru's once-fledging indie label whose roster included Group Home, Big Shug, Bahamadia, True Master and others.
The "Arena" shirt boasts Guru's image from the front cover of Gang Starr's classic 1991 Step in the Arena album.
As of the previous T-shirts, which are available for purchase, they should retail for $26. As of yet, no release date has been set for the shirts.
