My Main Man Pat over-estimate my hip hop knowledge once again

by Andy on June 26, 2013



In the weekly e-mail I get from My Main Man Pat it said “you’ll definitely recognize the tribe piece, and am curious to see if you are up on your Erykah Badu.” Once again I have to disappoint them because whilst I have heard of a Tribe Called Quest and I’m pretty sure there’s a song on my iPhone by Erykah Badu my knowledge once again falls short. That said, I do like the design on the black shirt, it works really well for a tee. Here’s the deets:

Do That Huh” is a tribute to the Tribe Called Quest classic “Find a Way”, created in the style of the iconic Low End Theory album cover. From designer Alan J. Thatcher “’Find a Way’ is a sexy song. I decided to use Q-Tip’s famous quote since its popular and people know who said it. Nothing sexier then the form of a fly lady, especially when their covered in those red and green stripes.”

Driving Across America” represents a couple of firsts for the company. Firstly, it is the first time we are featuring the work of an Artist from Africa, as D. Gud hit us up from all the way from Zimbabwe. Secondly, it is the first time we are featuring designed inspired by a female, and we are somewhat sheepish to say so given all they have contributed to the culture. Erykah Badu’s impact on the genre is easy to note, having worked with such legends as J.Dilla, The Roots and Common.
