The Virgil Abloh-drawn graphic features Kid Cudi puppeteering Kid Cudi
'Leader of the Delinquents' is the title of Kid Cudi's latest solo track, his first in three years

By now, a Kid Cudi and Virgil Abloh collab is something you should probably expect. Abloh designed Cudi’s successful tour merch in 2017 and Cudi made a low-key cameo on Abloh’s Louis Vuitton runway show in 2018. That said, the relationship between them run deeper than just these fashion get-togethers and a Kanye West link. To insiders, such a link-up is a testament to their mutual admiration and continuous support of their day ones. This one-off tee is designed by Abloh in honour of Cudi’s first solo music in three years, a single named Leader of the Delinquents, of which the graphic is also part of the music art on vinyl, cassette and disc. Abloh sketched Cudi puppeteering a smaller version of himself as a reference to his ways in commanding his own life and career choices. In Abloh’s words, he is a “true, young legend forever.” The T-shirt is now available on Kid Cudi's web store.
