For Bleacher Report and Mitchell and Ness' latest NBA Remix drop, six hip-hop acts including A$AP Ferg, Outkast and Aminé have put their own creative spin on a version of their hometown squad's jersey.

​Here are the affiliations: Outkast for the Atlanta Hawks, J. Cole‘s Dreamville Records for the Charlotte Hornets, Ferg for the New York Knicks, Joey Bada$$ for the Brooklyn Nets, Denzel Curry for the Miami Heat and Aminé for the Portland Trail Blazers.

Posting to his more than 1.4 million Instagram followers, Aminé revealed via a handwritten note, "I've always wanted to design my own Blazers jersey so when Bleacher Report hit me up, I was like Yooooo." He continued, "This jersey is special for me now and special for the 10-year-old me going to the Rose Garden in the nosebleeds. If you've been to Portland then you know how beautiful the skyline is, especially when the sun is going down. With a little Aminé yellow, I wanted to make sure we showcased that."

The #18 on his look has a little added significance too. It represents his birthday, April 18. 

Both Ferg and Joey also called the opportunity to design a jersey for their neighboring cities "a dream of mine."

This new capsule marks the second NBA Remix release this year. The first happened back in February and featured the likes of ScHoolboy Q for the Los Angeles Lakers, Big Sean for the Detroit Pistons and Wale for the Washington Wizards.

Each remixed jersey comes with a price tag of $175. Matching T-shirts ($45), hoodies ($100), hats ($40) and shorts ($125) are available as well. You can browse the full NBA Remix selection here.
