LONDON UK, Wednesday 6 December - FARFETCH Limited (NYSE: FTCH), the global destination for modern luxury, today launches FARFETCH BEAT 012 - the hotly anticipated second instalment of Nas and Futura’s vinyl trilogy with 12on12. This limited release features a new and original Hip Hop 50 cover – the second in the collectible triptych.
The unique partnership launched in August with the first release of a three-part vinyl trilogy, celebrating the 50th anniversary of hip-hop and the genre's rich history and global impact - combining the realms of art, music, and cultural expression. Similar to the first edition, BEAT 012 will be brought to life through a limited drop of the second-edition vinyls and 40 co-signed hand-decorated vinyls with Futura’s dynamic artwork, evoking a visual representation of the LP’s genre-defining hip-hop tracks, each specially selected by Nas.
Continuing the celebration of 50 years of hip-hop, FARFETCH will launch BEAT 012 in Dubai at the region's most celebrated youth and contemporary culture festival, Sole DXB, from 8-10 December 2023 at Dubai Design District. Sole DXB joined forces with Mass Appeal, the Nas-backed entertainment company, to bring the official Hip Hop 50 experience to the Arab world.
BEAT 012 will be available exclusively offline at SOLE DXB in Dubai from 8-10 December and online at www.farfetch.com while stocks last.
