The latest World Cup kit to be revealed is Japan’s phosphorescent yellow away kit. The “away” jersey is yellow, for the first time in the country’s history, the reason behind this is, according to the adidas news release:

The decision to adopt the all-over execution in yellow is an expression of the wishes that the people of Brazil join the enthusiastic Japanese supporters to root for the Japan National Football Team.

In addition, this yellow colour, as well as the red colour seen on the single line signifying ‘KESSOKU (bond, unity)'”. On the back of the uniform, adidas has incorporated bright neon colours (fluorescent colours), which contribute to the players’ greater presence on the pitch, with the familiar “Japan Blue” firmly implanted in the Three Stripes and on both sleeves.

De La Soul - 3 Feet High And Rising

Starting at 11AM EST on February 14th, head over to their website to get gems like their debut, De La Soul Is Dead and Buhloone Mindstate, among others.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, De La member Posdnuous said the reason behind this, beyond the anniversary, is:

“… about allowing our fans who have been looking and trying to get a hold of our music to have access to it… Its been too long where our fans haven’t had access to everything. This is our way of showing them how much we love them.

It’s been a trying journey. We’ve been blessed to be in the Library of Congress, but we can’t even have our music on iTunes. We’ve been working very hard to get that solved.”

Do yourself a favor and cop this catalog as soon as it’s available.
