Tribe Clarity “Back To Soul” Collection

Written by . Filed under Music Tees, Positive Tees, Street Tees. Tagged , , , . No comments.

First, watch this:

Anything related to A Tribe Called Quest immediately gets my attention, so when I caught a glimpse at Denver-based Tribe Clarity’s 2013 Back To Soul Collection, I was pumped. The entire Collection pays homage to Tribe, as well as the time back when people would praise intellect instead of ignorance.

Here’s a quick glimpse of the Collection, which as of today is available for pre-order. Check out the entire thing here and then make your pre-orders via Tribe Clarity.tribe_clarity_back_to_soul_collection_1 tribe_clarity_back_to_soul_collection_4 tribe_clarity_back_to_soul_collection_3 tribe_clarity_back_to_soul_collection_2

The latest partnership Yellow Bird Project has made is with London musician Keaton Henson. Henson’s tee features a (possibly self-portrait) hairy creature with the phrase, “I’m sorry I won’t make your party. I’ll be busy burning.”

Proceeds of the tee go to The Teenage Cancer Trust, a UK based charity devoted to improving the lives of teenagers and young adults with cancer.

Get it for $30 via Yellow Bird Project. Scroll down to check out the video to Keaton Henson’s “Charon.”

Stones Throw “J Dilla Changed My Life” Tee

Written by . Filed under Music Tees. Tagged , . No comments.

How freaking awesome is this? You’ve probably seen this J Dilla Changed My Life tee. However, this is the first time it’s getting it’s official release. The first tee was personally made by DJ Deckstarr, who was opening for J Dilla in what would be Dilla’s last show in Germany in 2005. DJ Deckstarr wanted to take the opportunity to let  Dilla know the impact that he had made on him and his music.

Since then, the shirt has popped up here and there as people have made their own versions. Now, Stones Throw and Pay Jay Productions are releasing the official J Dilla Changed My Life tee.

It’s available now for $25 via Stones Throw. Shipping date is set for October 8.

on.us.tees “Don’t Blame Hip Hop”

Written by . Filed under Music Tees. Tagged . No comments.

The other day I unfortunately spent two hours of my life watching Hip Hop on Trial, which featured a debate between hip hop artists such as Questlove, Q-Tip, KRS-One and Slaughterhouse, as well as professors and social activists. The issue was whether hip hop uplifts or brings down the community.

The crew at on.us.tees may have seen the same footage, because they just dropped their Don’t Blame Hip Hop tee. They offer the design in both men’s and women’s cuts for $24 each. You can order it via on.us.tees.
