Official Schoolly D & DJ Code Money T-Shirts Released
Rakim Told Me author/Hip-Hop curator Brian Coleman is a friend of AmbrosiaForHeads. The Boston-based veteran journalist recently launched Good Road Goods—a shirt line that includes vintage fully-licensed photographs that are important to Coleman.
His most recent included Philadelphia icon, Godfather of Gangsta Rap Schoolly D and his celebrated DJ Code Money. Authorized by Schoolly, Code, and photographer/crew-member Linn Stevens, this 1986 photograph was shot near Schoolly’s West Philadelphia home. These shirts (as well as others) are available for sale. Here’s Schoolly wearing the shirt now:
Check out this classic footage from that same year, which was in Big Fun In The Big Town featuring School and Code Money:
Brian also told us that he’s soon to finish a follow-up to Rakim Told Me (which was later re-published in an expanded edition as Check The Technique). The must-own books interviewing artists, producers, and label personnel about seminal 1980s Hip-Hop albums will soon have a 1990s edition, with lots of incredible revelations.
