Lil Wayne Becomes Now Spokesman For UGG/Bape Collection

The Young Money rapper is promoting a new line for UGGS and Bape.

(AllHipHop News) Lil Wayne has been tapped to front the new UGG x Bape collection.

Australian brand UGG, famous for its sheepskin-lined boots, has teamed with Tokyo-based streetwear brand Bape on a line made up of five new footwear styles, including a pair of slippers, plus a shearling leather coat and a pair of mittens.

"Been rocking UGG and BAPE since the beginning," Lil Wayne said in a press release. "This collab is next level."

The items are slated to hit shelves at the end of February. Prices range from $3,500 for the camo print coat to $180 for the mittens, embossed with BAPE across the front.

"Partnering with an iconic streetwear brand like Bape allowed us to show UGG Men's in a fresh new way and environment. Bape took its world-renowned print and applied it to several of our top-performing men's silhouettes, creating a street style-ready capsule," Andrea O'Donnell, president of fashion lifestyle at Deckers Brands, UGG's parent company, said.

The collaboration is one of the ways Bape is marking its 25th anniversary.
