Emory Jones is an O.G. in the truest sense of the definition; after serving 13 years in federal prison he was welcomed home by longtime friend Jay-Z with a position at ROC Nation.
Fast forward a couple years and some ill custom shoes later, Emory is now seeing tribute not only in Jay-Z’s music, but from his friends in the sneaker industry as well. Jones’ PMK co-partners Andre Scott and Kelton Crenshaw took inspiration from Magna Carta… Holy Grail track “La Famila” to create a special tee shirt in his honor featuring the line “Welcome home to Emory” alongside the logo from Jay-Z’s latest effort.
Available exclusively at Karmaloop.com, this limited edition tee is expected to fly off the shelves with both sneakerheads and Jay-Z fans buzzing online ahead of the drop set for July 22. Stay tuned to Karmaloop to get more information behind the tee and for the official release.
