So, who was that? His name is: SHIRT, Queens MC/designer that is currently pursuing a Master of Fine Arts degree in Europe. In honor of the monumental occasion, the SHIRT, which once designed a fake New York Times web site as a way of praising his own music, has released his first visual of the year in the form of San Holo-produced "Flight back Home."
Directed by SHIRT and Dave Svedosh, the video is rap from the top of a truck loaded with the adidas and Nike logos in Manhattan. From the 23rd of Broadway through the Lower East Side, a SHIRT of raps to 50 and as many blocks as the crowds.
T-SHIRT of the debut album, PURE BEAUTY, is expected to arrive via TMR on the 9th of February and will be followed by a vinyl release on February 23.
