J-Dilla and the Wu-Tang Clan inspire My Main Man Pat this week

by Andy on May 13, 2013



In their own words:

MyMainManPat.com is back at it with two new designs for the week of May 13th. This week we are featuring two artists representing the Nethlerlands, and we’ve got a couple of dessert themed designs.

“Donuts” is a tribute to the late J-Dilla. He has been hailed as one of the greatest producers in the game, working with talents like Common, A Tribe Called Quest, Busta Rhymes, and founding Slum Village. One of his most popular solo works was the instrumental album Donuts, and artist Delano Limoen has clearly been impacted by the work.

“Ice Cream” was inspired by the works of the legendary Wu-Tang Clan, specifically the single off Raekwon’s first solo project, Only Built For Cuban Links. I think the line “French Vanilla, Butter Pecan, Chocolate Deluxe holds a spot in all hip-hop fans hearts.

This week’s shirts are available until May 19th. As always, they are just $20 and include shipping anywhere in the world.

As usual, my lack of hip-hop knowledge means that there’s not much I can do in terms of critiquing the designs, but I do think that this week represents a step forward for them in terms of design quality, I really like the style on that Wu-Tang shirt.
