Trenton Makes, The World Takes: Tony D bonus

Shortly after posting my Tony D interview the other day, I remembered that my man PQuest had just issued a dope limited run T-shirt. It captures the time when Naughty By Nature were acccused of jacking a beat from Tony D’s 1989 instrumental compilation Music Makes You Move. They – allegedly – used it for a little known and deeply obscure song called ‘O.P.P’ which no-one ever heard anything about ever again. As Tony told me, he didn’t have much of a leg to stand on legally, considering his own laissez faire attitude towards the samples he’d used.

Anyway, PQuest is a huge Tony D fan, and these tees are not only fantastically niche in a way it’s hard not to love, they’re green (the best colour for rap tees) and, best of all, each one sold makes a contribution to Tony’s widow and two children.

Cop them here – do your bit for Tony’s family and, at the same time, commemorate a small piece of hip-hop folklore. We hope this grows into a thing – coming soon, the Fat Lace Big Daddy Kane AIDS rumour tee.

You want Issue 1 or 3? You came to the wrong place. They’re all ‘sold’ out like Peter and Corey. You don’t want issue 2, 4 or 5? You also came to the wrong place, as this is an advert for them. You want issue 6? It doesn’t exist, dummy. Anyhoo, you can pick these up at the shop. Holla with any Q’s.

Shout out to Rob Pursey, DJ Yoda, Barrie Bee, Mike Hard and Dan Large for doing the damn thing. And me.
