ERIC B. and RAKIM – Tribute Tee

Eric Barrier (Eric B.) and William Griffin (Rakim), were a hip-hop duo known as Eric B. & Rakim. The pair is generally considered to be one of the most influential and groundbreaking groups in the history of hip hop, due to their dark production and Rakim’s revolutionary rhyming style, which was smooth, seemingly effortless, and used remarkably complex rhyming schemes involving internal rhymes and sophisticated metaphors.

One of the all-time classics for us is I Ain’t No Joke“. Arguably one of greatest hip hop tracks ever recorded.

“I hold the microphone like a grudge
B’ll hold the record so the needle don’t budge
I hold a conversation cuz when I invent
I nominated my DJ the president

This t-shirt was designed as a tribute to tip our hats to the days when Hip Hop was still on the fringe. Long before the Black Eyed Peas or Krunk or Justin Timberlake there was a microphone and a set of turn tables. This one is for the grown folks. Respect.

    Mine just arrived in the mail.
    Quality is solid.
    I’m wearing mine to church tomorrow!
    – I know “the man upstairs” would appreciate it.

    The quality is great. I wore this to my friend’s BBQ on Saturday. 4 people not only asked me about it – the DJ threw on “I ‘AINT NO JOKE” and dedicated it to me. It was my 15 minutes of fame – well 3 minutes, but I enjoyed every minute of it.

    GREAT SHIRT!
