Rahdu Hip-Hop (Sticker)Stickers $7.00
I cannot recall if I first saw EPMD’s You Gots to Chill on Yo MTV Raps or Rap City. I do, however, remember where I was (grandma’s house) and that this video made me a fan of the L.I. duo. The subterranean vibe and funky production grabbed me and left a lifelong impression. Little did I know Mantronix, Stezo (R.I.P.) and Haze all had their hands in making one of the illest duos in Hip Hop…
The Cool (Sticker)Stickers $7.00

Born and raised in my city, Sun Ra is a constant muse and musical icon whose philosophy included thinking outside of the box and not being confined to another’s ideas. Coupled with the increase of albums being hailed as classics or failures within hours of release I imagined a musical listening society that allowed an album a reasonable incubation period before bestowing a designation…
KING KUTI: FATHER OF AFROBEAT
With this tee we’re remembering one of Africa’s most influential public figures in music, politics and pop culture. The singer, musician, political and human rights activist recorded dozens of albums during his very influential and challenging career. Fela Kuti not only pioneered the musical style of Afrobeat (a fusion of jazz, funk, Ghanaian/Nigerian highlife, psychedelic rock and traditional West African chants and rhythms), he was an outspoken critic of of the Nigerian government, the corrupt officials and the mistreatment of Nigerian citizens…
