What do you get when you mix Stuff White People Like sensibilities with hip-hop? The answer comes in the form of a hilarious new clothing line! Rap Shirts for White People puts a twist on famous lyrics while having fun at the expense of the world of whiteness. Can we all really picture Method Man's raspy voice declaring "Cats Rule Everything Around Me?" or Biggie saying, "It was all a dream, I used to read Highlights magazine?" (Although we'd say the Kelis spoof "My Self-Respect Brings All the Boys to the Yard," is a rap shirt for all women, not just whites).
Proceeds from satirical shirts started by Tim Blount go to related charities. They've caught the eye of The Source and HipHopDX. The Whole-Foods Clan shirts are already out of order! But the sampling below lists just a few that are still game.
|Started from the top and now we still there|
|Summers in Paris|
Next: More shirts!
|Coming straight from...a city council budget hearing?|
|I am a sinner...|
All the apparel comes with a disclaimer:
RAP SHIRTS FOR WHITE PEOPLE CAN BE WORN BY PEOPLE OF ALL COLORS, BUT IN SOME CASES, IT MAY NOT BE APPROPRIATE TO WEAR THEM AT ALL. USE YOUR BEST JUDGMENT.
Does that go for their Old English "Compost" snapbacks, too?
