There aren't many players in the football league who are also grime artists but there is at least one, Dagenham & Redbridge's very own Matthew James Robinson aka, Kamakaze. For their newest collaboration Umbro have teamed up with the pro-baller and grime artist to create a fresh retro inspired limited edition jersey.

Following on from Umbro’s sell-out collaboration with Loyle Carner, this new partnership signals the start of a succession of special-edition shirts with a roster of 2020's brightest home-grown talents as Umbro look to come out of lockdown swinging.

Designed by Kamakaze and Umbro, the shirt is inspired by Umbro’s iconic national home strip
from 1987-89. The original contrast crew-neck collar, complete with stud fastening, is updated in burgundy with red accents. Archive-inspired white/grey diamond print contrasts are also revived alongside colour-pop tabs on sleeves.

The Kamakaze x Umbro shirt features a ‘Kamakaze FC’ badge illustrated with a Yokosuka MXY-
7 Ohka aircraft alongside references to the grime artist’s previous music group ‘BLG’ and his upcoming drop ‘Memories Over Money’.

On the back of the shirt is a bold red number 7, not only the number worn by football’s most legendary players, but also Kamakaze’s personal professional goal total.
