    From Jay-Z's Rocawear to the forthcoming Kanye x A.P.C. collaboration, the art of rapper-turned-designer has long been a thing. So, when we heard that Nas had also jumped aboard the fashion train, we were hardly surprised. What was unexpected? The quality of the line — because it's really, really good.

    Teaming up with Jace Lipstein of Grungy Gentleman, Nas has designed a 33-piece streetwear collection called HSTRY. Highlights of the line include leather outerwear, flannel shirts, baseball caps, and ski masks (duh). And, as Stylelite points out, the pieces have very minimal branding, which makes for maximum street cred.

    "Clothes represent happiness," according to Nas. "They're our protection — even a reflection of what's in our heads, our thoughts and ideas. Hence the phrase, 'wearing our hearts on our sleeves.' With HSTRY, I'm embracing our greatest moments recorded in time in the form of premium street fashion." We agree: Clothes are happiness. And our love of menswear means we've got our eye on half your collection right now.

    The full line will be available on Grungy Gentleman beginning August 1. Though prices are not yet finalized, some items have been tagged anywhere from $85 to $1,800, running the gamut of price points. In the meantime, check out more of the lookbook. (Stylelite)
