Witness New York's Own SHIRT Present His "Theory"

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Along with being one of the rawest emcees out, I salute the homie SHIRT for bringing creativity to everything he does. I think you’d be better served listening to this new joint, “Theory,” before reading the explanation, so you can appreciate what you’re hearing at face value.

So I’ll go ahead and let you do that. Done? Alright, cool.

So SHIRT took the work of MoMA’s first poet laureate, Kenneth Goldsmith, more specifically his book, THEORY, and flipped his words into this song (produced by High Frequency). Check OUT the final product, below. SHIRT also has multiple full-length projects he plans to drop before the year ends, so expect more music very soon.
