From the Black Eyed Peas to N7: Nike and Taboo Form Unique Collaboration
“I’m not the Asian guy from the Black Eyed Peas,” Taboo announced with a laugh, “I’m the *Native* guy from the Black Eyed Peas!”
In an unprecedented cross section of athletics, entertainment, and Native American style, Nike N7 has announced their newest ambassador: Jaime Gomez of the Shoshone Nation, who is perhaps better known as the rapper/breakdancer “Taboo” from world famous supergroup, the Black Eyed Peas.
Taboo initially connected with Sam McCracken, N7’s general manager, through a mutual friend, famous Pawnee artist Bunky Echo-Hawk. The collaboration took off from there.
