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.

Need a ‘It Woz Pun Wot Done It!’ t-shirt, with all proceeds going to wifeys who’ve been pistol-whipped by their morbidly obese rapper husbands.
