Published Oct 17, 2014Proving that even a deadly outbreak is an opportunity for marketing, veteran Harlem MC Cam'ron has unveiled a rather unusual merch item: ebola masks.
As far as we can tell, this is absolutely real. The rapper posted a photo of the item on Instagram; as you can see above, the mask shows Cam'ron wearing a pink fuzzy hood while talking into a pink flip phone. (The outfit depicted is so infamous that it was offered in an online auction; it also inspired a T-shirt.)
Cam'ron wrote on Instagram, "Ebola is no joking matter.. So if u have to be safe.. Be fashionable. #CamEbolaMask."
The masks will apparently be available next week. They will be sold through Dipset USA and were made by the brand's own David Chang.
If you want to walk around with a photo of Cam'ron's face over your own face, now's your chance.
