Unfortunately we lost a rap legend and community leader by the name of Nipsey Hussle this week. I am a big fan of Nipsey and have been following his success for a decade now. He was a one-of-a-kind artist that spoke about issues within the community and how to create your own destiny through ownership. This LA based hip-hop artist, was a light of hope for his Crenshaw community providing jobs and opportunities for those that might never had a chance to prosper. It's sad that he had to go out the way he did. I felt the urge to create a portrait of him, not for likes, to commemorate his life. After I posted my rendering of him a few people asked for prints on canvas and t-shirts. Anytime I post an image of my "in memory" art someone bootlegs it and throws it on t-shirts, sweaters and other items. I want to help in keeping Nipsey's name alive so I teamed up with Brotherhood Crusades Charity in Crenshaw LA to give back to those kids in need. Brotherhood Crusade is a 50-year old grassroots organization with a vision of improving quality of life and meeting the unmet needs of low-income, underserved, under-represented and disenfranchised individuals.15% of the proceeds will go to Brotherhood Crusades to help locals in need. This design is expensive to print so must of the funds will go into purchasing the apparel, printing and overhead. I wanted to give his fans something dope and high quality like his music that they're use to. I really hope you enjoy these Nipsey Hussle t-shirts, sweaters and prints. My condolences go out to his family, friends and fans. You are truly missed Nip. THE MARATHON STILL CONTINUES!
It’s with a heavy heart that I make these t-shirts. One of my favorite Hip-Hop artists of all time Prodigy of Mobb Deep has passed away. I’m very fortunate that I had the chance to work with him before he passed. I wanted to design a piece that Mobb Deep and Prodigy fans would cherish in honor of this hip-hop veteran’s life. Rest In Peace brother. Albert “Prodigy” Johnson.

Artclass: Michael Jordan t-shirt
LIMITED AMOUNT! Since Scram Jones and I have started these live painting artclass sessions I figured why not throw the art on t-shirts for all of those that were looking to purchase the art but didn't manage to win. This is the Michael Jordan art class tee. This is for all of those NBA fans that can't live without the GOAT. Basketball is life and this is a t-shirt you must have.
