Original Story (01/30/20): Jesse Diaz, better known as Kodone, is a rising star in the hip-hop, streetwear, and art world. The 22-year-old artist from Tusla, Oklahoma has made a name for himself with his unique rap-centric illustrations. You might’ve seen his artwork feature on the cover of projects like Lucki’s Watch My Back or 03 Greedo’s God Level. One of his next projects is a streetwear collection with Chicago’s Half Evil.
Similarly to Half Evil’s recent collaboration with The Hundreds, the drop will include a new style of the brand’s signature $3.33 tee as well as a limited edition rug. Half Evil founder Sam has also previewed a hoodie from the drop, releasing in a black colorway with Kodone’s artwork on the chest.
