Nas is getting his very own action figure.
In honor of hip-hop’s upcoming 50th anniversary, toy designer Steven Cartoccio has teamed up with Mass Appeal and Hip Hop 50 to create the limited edition collectible.
“Nas. Truly honored to collaborate with the hip hop legend I regard as the greatest of all time,” Cartoccio posted on Instagram, along with photos of the figure.
The figure comes with different removable accessories that pay homage to some of Nas’ iconic album covers, including the orange cap from Stillmatic and the Egyptian pharaoh mask from I Am…
The Nas collectible will become available on December 1 at 11 a.m. ET on shop.massappeal.com.
Hip-hop marks its 50th year in 2023. Earlier this month, hip-hop legends, including Grandmaster Flash, Roxanne Shanté and Slick Rick, gathered at Manhattan’s City Hall to announce NYC’s celebration plans for the milestone. There will be 50 events planned over 50 days in coordination with the Universal Hip Hop Museum, which is set to open its doors in The Bronx in 2024.
