Try on Biggie Smalls’ famous gold crown at Dubai's Sole BXB

It was all a dream – but now you can feel like hip hop royalty by donning the very crown of the legendary Notorious B.I.G.

The famous gold crown worn by the Brooklyn rapper is making its way to Sole DXB next month (Thursday December 6-Saturday December 8) and you can try it on for size.

The ornate headwear will be featured at the Reebok setup at this year’s event in d3, because what better way to sport a bejeweled crown than with a pair of trainers?

You’ll be able to capture the moment with none other than Barron Claiborne, the photographer behind the famous King of New York album cover, for an iconic snap of your own.

Also joining Reebok across the weekend is Kerby Jean-Raymond, the famed American designer behind fashion line Pyer Moss, who will be speaking as part of the Sole DXB’s cultural talks and conversations on Friday December 7.

The unisex line, which includes the DMX fusion sneaker, will be on show throughout the weekend in Reebok brand space, along with several ultra-exclusive limited-edition and rarely seen trainers.

Completing the Reebok line up across the weekend is South African hip-hop star AKA, who will be performing on Reebok’s set up, while American singer-songwriter Abra, is set to storm the main stage, bringing down the curtain on the street culture festival on the Saturday night.

And if you don’t know, now you know...
