Hey it's been a while since I've been on but I was diggin through some old records and came across my first album cover. This was a 12" compilation for Rooftop Records, a historic hip hop club in Harlem. I did this in the year 1987. Some of Kool Moe Dee's jams were released under this label and much of hip hops heavy hitters frequented the spot. This album featured artists like B-Fats, Queen Lisa Lee and the Disco Four to name a few. It was one of my first major jobs although I had a city wide rep in Philly for airbrushing t-shirts. Unfortunately it wasn't the big payoff (LOL!) but I always put my all into every job I did. If you look at this character and look at my Brotherman images , you will see that that has been my style for years. In fact, this was the original prototype for Brotherman.
I always wondered if Treach was inspired to wear the pad lock around his neck from this concept. His represented his respect to brothas on lock. It's all good tho . . . just wondered.
