Fela Kuti x Milkcrate Tees

Bmore gutter producer Aaron Lacrate remixes Fela Kuti and designs a new Fela-inspired tee

Fela Kuti meets Bmore gutter in this collaboration t-shirt between the afrobeat legend and Milkcrate Athletics.

Stream Aaron Lacrate's remix of Fela below and buy the t-shirt at Milkcrate.
