The Charlotte Hornets hinted at a Dreamville/Hornets collaboration last week and today the team announced the first 7,500 fans in attendance for the March 7 game against the Houston Rockets will receive a special limited edition Dreamville/Hornets co-branded T-shirt.
Dreamville artist and Charlotte native Lute, who recently released his single, “GED (Gettin Every Dolla),” will also perform at halftime. “I think that this Dreamville and Hornets collab is really dope and would mean a lot to the city and the culture,” said Lute. “Growing up, I remember the Hornets would always connect with people in the community; whether it be players shooting hoops with kids at the park or your favorite player coming to the barbershop. It’s a fitting collab because we share the same principles.”
The front of the purple T-shirt features the Dreamville logo, accented by a classic Hornets logo, in white. The back of the shirt features a full-color classic Hornets logo with Hugo wearing a Dreamville hoodie. The Hornets will also wear the purple Classic Edition uniforms and play on the classic court on March 7 against Russell Westbrook, James Harden and the Houston Rockets
“We are excited to collaborate with Dreamville Records to give away a co-branded T-shirt for our March 7 game,” said Hornets President & Vice Chairman Fred Whitfield. “As North Carolina’s NBA team, we are pleased to have the opportunity to partner with one of our state’s most prominent performers in J. Cole, who is a friend to our team and enjoys representing the Hornets brand.”
