It’s a great day when two Artists get together to create something incredible to honor the fallen. Just a couple days ago across from the QUEENSBRIDGE Housing project Jeff Henriquez and Eli Lazare did just that immortalizing Prodigy of Mobb Deep a true legend in the hiphop game on 13th and 40th Street in Queens.
That was brought to an abrupt end when dick heads Defaced the Mural not less than 24 hours after its completion. I hope they find the mumble rap fans who did this and skin them alive. People suck.
We’re coming up on the tragic death date of the great Biggie Smalls, so My Main Man Pat has done the honor of finding some incredible designs this week! Which reminds me I forgot to get that Mr. Burns joint last time I failed :(. Check em out.
I must say I am loving the start our third year has gotten off to. We have multiple joints from the homie Ready2Rumbl up and yet it’s still not easy to say he has the dopest art on the page. I like with how high the bar has been set for the next 52…
For those of you who were following the page this time last year, you may recall that we dedicate the week of March 9th to the one and only Biggie Smalls. With this in mind I’ve been hunting artists on Instagram and am real please we landed Jim Spendlove. His “Word Up Magazine” design speaks for itself and I hope you’ll join me in welcoming him to the team.
Ready2Rumbl made me sweat a bit but came through as he always does with his “Ready2Die” joint. I love the way this man’s mind works and I think we may have our first two candidates for next years contest.
On that note, much respect to all of those who voted in our reprint contest. Although the competition was tight it is tough to argue with the eventual winner. R2R’s “If I Ruled The World” joint took the crown as last year’s finest design and will be our only reprint of the year. Also available in Hoodies this time around.
My Main Man Pat with a very dope drop this week, Pat if you read this I need that CREAM shirt!
I never thought My Main Man Pat would take it this far. This week marks the end of our second year of existence and you know we got to go out in style. To have these two particular designs up for the occasion means a lot to yours truly and here’s why.
“CREAM” is just plain silly dope. The references are pretty obvious, so obvious that I can’t believe no ones put these two together before. The ski mask just takes it to another level….Ben R, you have humbled us yet again.
Equally excited about Captain Lemon’s latest effort but for different reasons. If any of you are not familiar with the works of Nujabes I haven’t been doing my job. His music wasn’t for everyone but if you like it chances are you fuckin love it, and that is the category I fall into. Real proud to be playing host to this one…REST IN BEATS JUN SEBA.
Also a reminder, we are down to the final four in our reprint contest and I can’t wait to watch these last three battles unfold. We are giving away $100 in free gear to those who make their voices heard so be sure to hit our facebook page Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday evenings to help us pick a winner.
Much respect to you fam, no way we’re here without y’all.
My Main Man Pat has some dope designs for us today in the form of Souls of Mischief and their classic 93 til Infinity and one of my personal faves to grace Pat’s site this beautiful Pimp C shirt showing Pimp C with angel wings gettin’ pour’d up. It’s kind of depressing design as Pimp C lost his life to an Overdose but it’s what Pimp C was into so I can’t judge.
We are in our 96th week and it’s because of you we have gotten this far. In an effort to reward those who cop our shirts on the regular, we have introduced a loyalty program to the page. Going forward, everytime you buy a shirt, 10% of your purchase will go into a bank of points which can be used as currency for future gear. You must purchase with a registered account in order to accumulate points. If you don’t have one yet, you will get 250 points upon signup, and if you do your account will be credited with that amount in the coming days. All the best in 2015 my people!
My Main Man Pat is back, Another week and another couple of shirts for ya’s
I have got to be honest folks, I am pretty happy to have two designs that everybody is going to be loving back on the page. We received a lot of feedback on the police inspired shirts we had up last week, some positive and some not so much. Then the shooting went down in NYC and I was close to pulling the shirts. In the end though, giving the artists an outlet to express themselves is what we’re supposed to be all about and that ended any second thoughts I was having.
I must say this week’s designers have embraced that philosophy. First time collaborator Justin Alejandro has certainly made a strong impression with “Forever Ever”, a line that needed to be illustrated on this site a long time ago.
On the right is something of equal beauty, a creation from the mind of Dutch artist P.Winkel. “Roll With It” is a tribute to one of his favorite Bronsolinio lines and I highly recommend taking this one in on full zoom as it is as intricate as the mans beard.
A very happy holiday to you and yours fam, will be back at you next week.
Another week and more excellent design schemes from our MAIN MAN PAT!
It’s a full blown DOOM takeover this week at My Main Man Pat. Normally, we like to spread the love in terms of the rappers we pay homage to but these ones needed to be displayed side by side. On one side we’ve got Ready2Rumbl’s record holding 26th collabo, on the other Brandon Treadwell’s first. Both of these fine men have clearly figured out the quickest path to our hearts though, and if you know me you know it’s going to be a good week for the speakers.
Big shouts to Stephen G. for taking down last week’s free shirt contest with his suggestion of the “Mathematics” sample. Matter of fact, big shouts to all those who sent in your submissions, it was a ton of fun going through them all. We will definitely be running another one soon so stay tuned.
Enjoy the next seven days and keep those fazers on stun,
