T.Shirt is the walking, talking, ill rapper dot com. His name, as he puts it, is “for obvious reasons, baby”. Since his days at the High School of Art & Design in New York City, he’s been handpainting elephants and exclamation points on tees, developing his clothing label, Deviant Arthouse. That’s just fly, fun stuff though. When it comes to his music, T.Shirt gets serious. With a singer-songwriter’s poetry, the subtleties of his verses are sincere while befitting his wild, blazing character. His resounding voice is extremely versatile, edgy and truthful to a degree we rarely see in hip-hop. T.Shirt isn’t merely a white, black, or hispanic rapper, he is an everyman. A genre-bending, stylishly sensible, black shades-wearing, hardworking, mothafucking rap star. On his personal website illrapper.com, besides advertising, marketing, and selling his own endeavors, T.Shirt profiles artists both widely renowned and wildly obscure. He provides downloads and links as well as insight and commentary on music, fashion, and art in various mediums. He calls it “the lifestyle and love of the young popular culture, as seen through the eyes of an ill rapper”.
