ERIC B. & RAKIM for PRESIDENT '86 T-Shirt, CLASSIC HIP HOP Sizes are running out - Limited to approx. 36 tees for this reprinting. TEE SIZES; Mens 2XL, 3XL

BONUS ITEMS: MF DOOM, A BATHING APE "Tribute" Stickers, etc.

Hi, on auction is what I call the ERIC B & RAKIM: I Ain't No Joke '86. It's all about taking it back to the golden age of HipHop when the world was introduced to the duo of Eric B. and Rakim and they gave us the "Eric B. is President" track with the added "I Ain't No Joke" being the campaign slogan for how they do it. The design is a parody of the Bush/Cheney campaign logo but i added the seven stars shaped in a crescent to signify the Gods and the Earths religion, which is the science and mathematics that I feel they brought to HipHop too. I made this t-shirt for fun and to promote my illustration / design skills. Not to confuse anybody, this tee was made in 2007 but to commemorate the HipHop era of '86. Campaign for the REAL, is what I say. You definitely get second looks wearing this tee.
NOTE: This shirt was not made in affiliation with the respective artist/s or companies mentioned above but made in tribute to their fine work. This design is made from altered known elements; this is the same thing done as most street fashion and pretty much any skateboard company to some degree. Some can call it PARODY, I call it TRIBUTE. See pics below, I apologize for my bad photos. Two color screen printed on Gildan brand royal blue cotton t-shirt. Sizes run pretty regular not "custom fitted" or extra baggy. Womens sizes do run larger, i believe. Shirts are professionally screen printed with ink laying into the fabric for long lasting quality NOT like a cheap iron-on transfer that will probably crack or peel. Hand washing and hang dry suggested for best care. Winning bidder, SPECIFY YOUR SHIRT SIZE; when you send your payment to me or this will delay your order and/or your size may be gone; IMPORTANT .

BONUSES: I will also include a PROMO PACK 'O STICKERS, featuring the ERIC B & RAKIM DOPE Sticker (a parody of the Shepherd Fairy Obey Giant Obama HOPE design) and some based on my other t-shirt designs. (actual sticker selection may differ from picture). PLUS I'll throw in a random lil SKETCH DRAWING drawn and signed by me.

Who am I: I am an designer / illustrator / artist with work shown throughout the world: Sushi Shop in Japan, UC Berkeley and San Jose Museum for Art shows, art in the IZASTIKUP sticker book, PEEL streetart magazine. I've actually designed a lot of shirts for clients but I decided to do it for myself. BTW, that's C-Knowledge of the Digable Planets wearing the Eric B. tee.

Remember, my tees are limited, so once they're gone, they're gone. Only sold by me. Not in stores. Not on DG, not at Karma. My TEES have been mentioned in a recent VAPORS MAGAZINE, the Fashion is All Over Issue. That is a pic of C-Know the Doodlebug of Digable Planets wearing my IGOD shirt and yes, that is a pic of the god, Rakim with XM Radio's DJ Baby Yu rockin' my first DOOM tribute shirt design which is SOLD OUT and that is a pic of the GENIUS of WU-TANG rockin' the shirt at ROCK the BELLS in MIAMI. Sorry, I'm namedropping, but honestly no one gives me a chance unless I'm a major brand name so I gotta hype them dudes. And it should be noted, they sought me out when they saw my designs, not the other way around. Oh, and that's Pharrell Williams a.k.a. Skateboard P with me wearing my DOOM /Pharrell /BAPE polo. Pharrell complimented my sh*t and kinda said he wouldn't sue me.
Please ask questions before you bid.
