Gaming organization FaZe Clan has announced a new capsule collection commemorating the late rapper Juice WRLD and honoring the artist's posthumous album, “Legends Never Die.”
Born out of friendship between Juice WRLD and the FaZe Clan, the collection pays tribute to the impact he left on the gaming community and the special bond he had with FaZe gamers.
The collection was made in close collaboration with Juice WRLD's team and Quantum PFS. FaZe Clan's in-house design team created the capsule drawing inspiration from Juice WRLD's album, his legacy and the moments he created together with the team.
"Juice really loved gaming and loved the FaZe guys," says Peter Jideonwo, Juice WRLD's manager. "They did an amazing job on this merch line and we are so glad to see this collaboration is coming out in honor of ‘Legends Never Die.’"
Along with several graphic tees and a hoodie, the collection features a paintball jersey with matching mesh shorts, drawing from memories Juice made with FaZe Clan during a paintball game last year.
"Juice had a huge impact on my life personally, and the fact that we get the chance to work with this team on this drop for his posthumous album is really, really special," says FaZe Adapt, member, FaZe Clan. "We hung out and went paintballing once last summer. After that we talked a couple times over the phone, through text, and we made plans about hanging out again: playing ‘Call of Duty,’ going paintballing again. I was really looking forward to it. What I miss most about Juice is his presence. He said a lot of things that a lot of people were afraid to address in his music. He made people feel like they weren't alone, which is one thing I always hold close to me. From the moment I found out who he was, he was almost exclusively what I listened to because I could relate to what he was saying and he made me feel like I wasn't alone. I hope our fans and Juice's fans are happy with this drop and really like it. It was something we've wanted for a while and we are so happy it's finally here."
FaZe team members recently got together with the Juice WRLD camp for a commemorative game of "Team 999 vs Team FaZe Clan" paintball in honor of Juice and the “Legends Never Die” album. FaZe Clan also released a paintball video on its main YouTube channel with all FaZe talent donning the new Juice WRLD paintball uniform.
For a limited time-only, the capsule will be available for sale in a bundle alongside the “Legends Never Die” album, via juicewrldxfazeclan.com.
