Philly Rap T's - Word-Up Records
WORD-UP RECORDS -
1ST UP IN A SERIES OF PHILLY RAP T'S -
In looking around for small businesses to support during these holiday seasons, I noticed the complete absence of any sort of t-shirts / merch involving the rich music history of Philadelphia. Since that's sort of our thing, I said to myself now is the time. This is the first in a series of Philly RAP t-shirts. More to come soon.
All t-shirts are screen printed here in Philly by @SweekChunk and logos/graphics manipulated by the homie @jeremyzombie.
