Nas continues his efforts to celebrate his blackness in the form of fashion.

In an interview with The Huffington Post, the I Know I Can rapper announced that he’s launching a Black History Month-inspired collection of his HSTRY brand.

Featuring apparel with the statements “Black Don’t Crack” and the James Brown anthem “I’m Black and I’m Proud”, the proceeds will also benefit the National Black Child Development Institute.

“We’re in a time where we can get caught up on the negative things going on in America. This collection is about turning things around,” said Nas.
