A limited release design New Era Cap Company fitted baseball cap with the Major League Baseball Atlanta Braves logo owned by Big Boi. The cap is purple with a rainbow-colored embroidered "A" at the center front crown, matching the album cover for Big Boi's solo release, "Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors" (2013). The New Era logo is embroidered on the proper left side and the Major League Baseball logo is embroidered on the center back, both in the same colors as the "A". The interior of the crown is lined with a multi-colored shiny fabric, with each seam covered in black woven tape featuring repeating white printed text reading "59FIFTY NE NEW / ERA". There are four (4) tags on the interior center back of the cap. At the far left is a tag with the Major League Baseball logo and the text "GENUINE / MERCHANDISE". At the center is a brand tag reading "NEW / ERA / FLY YOUR OWN FLAG". At the far right is a size "7 1/2" tag. Below the center brand tag is an additional tag with fiber content, care, and manufacturer information. There are two (2) holographic stickers on the brim of the cap. On the top side is a gold and black sticker reading "NEW ERA / 59FIFTY / 7 1/2". On the bottom side is a silver sticker with red marks made to look like a baseball and text reading "OFFICIAL / MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL / LR358006037".
