Well, if you’re a fan of both music and soccer then we can safely assume your answer would be yes, right? The concept of taking your favorite album’s artwork and turning that into a soccer jersey begs the question of why it’s never been done before. Well, thanks to graphic designer Nick Texeira, we now have a good reason to push this design notion into reality, as his reimagining of some of today’s most popular music album artwork into kits proves just how amazing this idea can be.
Texeira’s concept artwork seen here focuses mainly on popular hip-hop albums, which he has turned into the designs for an array of global team kits, as well as throwing in his own choice of sponsored branding. This includes such mashups as A$AP Rocky’s Testing with Chelsea FC; Post Malone’s Stoney with FC Barcelona, Migos’ Culture II with Atlanta United FC; Drake’s Scorpion with Toronto FC; and Young Thug’s Slime Language with LAFC and more, not to mention other types of concept kits on Texeira’s Instagram account. Have a look at the designs Nick Texeira has put together, as well as his official website, then leave us a comment on what album x soccer jersey you would want to wear.
It’s that time of year. Today we make our Best 11 feature about giving thanks. Below are brands, players, artists plus a certain Stone Island wearing superstar manager we tip our hat to for inspiration, admiration and thanks. Here is this week’s Best 11.

the Football Shirt Collective shows us an up close and personal look at Stuttgart’s camp shirt. A unique monochrome camo gives this black kit class and menacingly stealthy vibes. Bravo to Puma in this one.
City Boys continue to amaze us with every new drop. These crazy Mardonian Church Champion hoodies are another example of the aforementioned. If you haven’t seen their Zizou Headbutt jacket or Goalkeeper inspired pouches, we suggest you get your life together and check them out.
