Freshness: Jay-Z, King Hova, Forever Young T-Shirt

Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

United Five Jay-Z a.k.a. Young Hova T-ShirtHere’s a dope Jay-Z T-Shirt from the good folks at United Five (no relation to 5Fam, name is a coincidence).  My personal favorite rapper ever, he’s withstood the test time. From his Original Flavor days with “Can I Get Open” and “I Can’t Get With That” to “On to the Next One” and “Empire State of Mind,” the evolution of Jay has kept him at the top (or near the top) of almost everyone’s top 5 list since the early to mid 90’s. His wittiness, effortless flow and good ear for beats are coupled with an uncanny business mind (Roc-A-Fella and Roc Nation Records, Rocawear and being part owner of the Nets come to mind) that has made him one of the most successful (both musically and financially) entertainers of our generation.

United Five’s description of the shirt:

From driving some of the hottest cars New York has ever seen, to dropping some of the hottest verses rap has ever heard; from moving snowflakes by the O-Z to checking cheddar like a food inspector, you either love him or leave him alone. Jay-Z a.k.a. Young Hova is arguably one of the greatest rappers of all time, and United Five pays homage with this tee to one of Brooklyn’s finest. Jay-Z, Forever Young.

All t-shirts are screen printed by hand using soft to the touch inks.
100% Combed Ring spun Cotton. Super-soft, lightweight, slim-fit tee. Machine washable and preshrunk to minimize shrinkage.

You can check their website at http://www.united-five.com, or go directly to their shop at http://shop.united-five.com.  I personally have the United Five Biggie Babe Ruth t-shirt as well as their Crooklyn shirt.  Aside from the nice designs, they’re good quality; I’ve washed them quite a few times since with no signs of wear and tear.

From what I understand, the name of “United Five” comes from the five boroughs of New York, so you’ll see some borough specific tees as well as some that represent all five.  So if you rep the city hard, you may want to grab these shirts to show your solidarity.

More to come, so stay tuned!

MooN ShynE on Real Heat Radio, August 30, 2010 at 10:30PM

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

I’m going to be on Real Heat Radio, an internet based hip-hop radio show based out of Nyack, New York this coming Monday, August 30, 2010 at 10:30PM.  As the details come in, I will be updating everyone on how to watch the show online.  I’m looking forward to this, since I’m going to get to promote stuff from Phase 3 as well as putting some shine on the United Five song Vincent, Timmy Titus and I just completed.

I get to be on for a half hour, including time for the DJ to play songs in its regular rotation.  In that half hour, the first twenty minutes will be an interview and the last ten minutes will be a freestyle or performance of a single.  Again, this is including the time to play songs that it needs to play during the rotation since it is a radio station.

Stay tuned for the details!

Freshness: An Ill Biggie T-Shirt

Friday, May 7th, 2010

United Five Notorious B.I.G. a.k.a. Biggie Smalls Babe Ruth T-ShirtHere’s an ill Biggie T-Shirt from the good folks at United Five (no relation to 5Fam, name is a coincidence).  Any fan of hip-hop knows the King of New York, Notorious B.I.G. a.k.a. Biggie Smalls.  From the ever-so-fluid flow, sharp wittiness, and uncanny storytelling ability, Biggie is one of the most (and for many, simply the most) revered emcees.  Even after his untimely and tragic death in 1997, he still is in a majority of top 5 lists, and for a majority of those, he’s in the #1 position.

United Five’s description of the shirt:

The Biggie, Babe Ruth Re-Mix T-shirt. Untied Five teams up with designer CuddleMachine for this clever fun shirt. Representing two of New Yorks greatest icons.

All t-shirts are screen printed by hand using soft to the touch inks.
100% Combed Ring spun Cotton. Super-soft, lightweight, slim-fit tee. Machine washable and preshrunk to minimize shrinkage.

You can check their website at http://www.united-five.com, or go directly to their shop at http://shop.united-five.com.  I personally have this t-shirt as well as their Crooklyn shirt.  Aside from the nice designs, they’re good quality; I’ve washed them quite a few times since with no signs of wear and tear.

From what I understand, the name of “United Five” comes from the five boroughs of New York, so you’ll see some borough specific tees as well as some that represent all five.  So if you rep the city hard, you may want to grab these shirts to show your solidarity.

Tomorrow, I’ll be hitting you guys up with some info on the new SM57 I bought.  It’s the first SM57 I’ve bought for my mic arsenal.  Studio pros know the SM57 very well, and though the review I’m going to give would be obvious to those who have had it, I’m hoping it’ll be enlightening to those who are trying to find the right microphone for electric guitar amp cabinets and snare drums.

More to come, so stay tuned!
