#TrapRapFridays is on again…and the folks and familia over at Dirty Glove Bastard and Ballers Eve have nabbed us up for the ride. I was told to tell you to consider this unholy union as New York City’s official “progressive trap rap” coalition…and this event, the 2nd of the 2012 saga, to stand as the gateway to all things trappy and large-sounding, sound system-wise. Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire will host and maybe even perform (or just touch scantily clad women types) for this special Friday the 13th edition. Expect some other special out-of-town guests too.
All this trill ruckus takes place at Drom, 11pm-4am.
BBOX Radio, home to Fresh Out The Box, will probably be streaming this live…so if you are not in the city, sick at home, or not of age…or some other weird shit… you can at least listen to the madness as it unravels on the best Internet radio station out there.
Big up our mans Farrington and KDS. Word the fuck up.
Just finished toiling over a hot laptop and buggy iMovie ’08 to bring you this new video. PTP proudly presents to you…the KILLA SHIRT (aka the “Woo Tang”, aka the “John Wu”, aka the “Woo Wu”, aka the “Tony Wza”)!
The ad is a short edit of an original idea, therefore it is only hints to how this shirt fully reps all that killa shit. A double-tribute…tied together in light of this weekend’s promise of Wu doing the entire Enter The 36 Chambers at Rock The Bells. That ain’t no small shit, so PTP figured it was time to do something this serious…and wearable.
On the front, a bold and timeless frame off of John Woo’s masterpiece, The Killer (one of my favorites of all time). Flip it over and you have the classic Raekwon quote (off of Enter The 36…‘s “7th Chamber” intro…)…all silkscreened as a classy purple and black color print. To add on, remember our favorite album that retained a nickname which was then adopted as part of the namesake to this very website? Yes, that Purple Tape. That Purple Tape which was enveloped in audio snippets from the same John Woo work of art as referenced on the Killa Shirt along with words from the favored wordsmith behind said album. Full circle. Everything is everything.
TO ORDER: Please note: we do not have a store/shopping cart system set up just yet. To get your Killa Shirt today, send a message over to email@example.com with your shirt size and desired quantity. We’ll set you up proper.
Sizes: S-XL (2XL and XS on special order)
Also, look out for this shirt (or another edition of it) to appear at a favorite retailer, soon…but best believe you will get the best deal by dealin’ direct. So hit us up.
Seriously, it has been a week since receiving these in hand and the response has been tremendous. Not one email blast, post, tumble, or tweet yet…and we’re almost out of the first batch. Extra EARLY!
I said…the only thing that could have made OB4CL2 better, aside from replacing “Kiss The Ring” with “Walk Wit Me” as the official closer and including more RZA production (or at least the joints like “State of Grace” and “Baggage Handlers”)…was a cameo from the real “God MC”…KGR.
I AM HEAVILY ANTICIPATING THIS COLLABORATION (even better, in EXTENDED-PLAY or FULL LENGTH form). True stillz.
Yep. After typing “purpletapepedigree.blogspot.com” enough/one too many times, I’ve come to realize how tedious that URL was…and we all know that tedium is no fun. So today marks a moment of renovation… I present to you, the new URL: ptp-blog.blogspot.com
Of course…you know this already, since you’re here reading this.
