If you don’t already know, HipHop super producer Just Blaze loves BMX and he’s a huge lover of GT Performers. He’s been posting photos of his growing collection of GT Performers for a while now and word on the street is he may be doing a collaboration with GT. A few hours ago Just posted a photo of a custom GT Performer he built with a Wu-Tang Clan inspired theme. It’s called the Wu Model and it’s pretty fresh.
The black and yellow colorway represents the Wu-Tang Killa Bees. There’s even a actual killer bee graphic on the top tube. Next to the Killa bee is the “Wu Model” decal. Along the down tube is a “Wu Freestyle” decal. A “JB” decal is also located where the headtube and downtube meet. The JB stands for Just Blaze of course.
The GT decal on the head tube is replaced by the infamous Wu-Tang “W”. There’s also a gyro with black and yellow checkered brake cables.
The pedals are yellow, the vintage brakes and hubs are gold and the rims are yellow. Just really went old school with those grey tires. It would’ve be really cool if he put on the classic GT logo tires or even better, Wu-tang “W” logo tires 😉
The black dice valve cap with a yellow “36” is a fresh detail. On the chain stay there are more Wu-tang W’s in yellow, white and gold. There’s also also a black and yellow chain.
The Just Blaze Wu Model GT Performer is super fresh. Is it a one off or will there be a limited run of these? We’ll try and find that out for ya’ll, stay tuned.
