Personally I think it's pretty ugly, like the shining album cover. There's black and burgundy colorways. They should have let Jank design this one, would of way rather copped a donuts designed new era than this one.

It could certainly be better, but I'd still wear one. I kinda like the Shining album cover; it's clean and understated. Either way, that's a cool hat. Thanks for the link!

i hate the shining cover art. it does not represent the music at all.... it's lowest common denominator design. rubbish. same with the shining ep - all glitz and bad design glam. would it have looked the same if he'd been alive when it was released or would he have halted that shit??? thats what i want to know...

stupid bbe. the inside of the gatefold is all pixelated...

Guilty Simpson had on one, at the Detroit 'Chrome Children' tour show. I think that the cap looks dope, but to me it would have been doper in the Shining album cover colors, Burgundy and Gold, instead of black and gold?!?

Yeah I know eh, brutal album artwork for the shining..that cheesy gucci pattern, what the hell were they thinking? Look at the welcome to detroit package, great photography, innovative cd package with the magnet? They really fell off on the album artwork this time.

Somewhat dope hat, I'd rock with a curved brim of course (none of that straight brim bollocks cats be rocking these days.)

...and for the record the Shining cover is smooth and unique.



Peace

/\ I heard from my homie DJ HouseShoes, that they're mad limited. Only given to label peeps, street team, DJs, etc. This is what he told me when I asked him to hook me up with one, and he's the one of the few people I know who has one and, or would be able to get their hands on one.

My only other advice would be, keep testin' out Ebay or Amazon, or stay persistent with daily search engine 'keyword'. You can find one.

damn do i want that hat...and you have to wear it with the bill flat (take the sticker off though) cause you only bend them on hats that needed to block out sun,not style.


and i have no problem with the shining cover art.

New Video To Be Released For ‘Shining’ Album Track 'Won't Do' exclusively on imeem (www.imeem.com <http://www.imeem.com/> )
As word continues to spread on the recent release of J Dilla's final work 'The Shining', a steady chorus of praise is making itself heard.  From major magazine features and newspapers nationally to NPR, television and more, this final work by one of Hip Hop's most innovative creative forces continues to be held up as proof that J Dilla was one of the most significant Hip Hop artists in recent memory.  
 
The release will now see further play with a new video currently in post production for the track 'Won't Do'.  The video is directed by Mazik Saevitz (of Blood of Abraham fame) and will feature Dilla's brother John Yancey as well as cameos from Common, Will.I.AM, Black Thought, Talib Kweli, Karriem Riggins and others. Styling for the video was done by Las Vegas based Fruition (www.fruitionlv.com <http://www.fruitionlv.com> ). Expect a surreal CG driven visual journey that will celebrate Dilla’s legacy while staying true to ‘Won’t Do’ as a song.
The video will premier on 12/4/06 and will be exclusively available on imeem http://jdilla.imeem.com/ <http://jdilla.imeem.com/>  for 2 weeks following the premier. 2 weeks leading up to the premier exclusive stills and behind the scenes footage will be available on imeem.  imeem is a next-generation online network for social media, bringing people together through shared creative passions by combining social networking with innovative digital media features and instant messaging. imeem allows people to upload user-created video, audio, photos, and blogs, attracting an independent and diverse community of artists, bands, filmmakers, photographers, DJs, video nuts and fans.

Sorry to have missed that release party for the caps in Toronto. But I wouldn't have been buying one anyway, not at the price they're asking for them. I know it's going to a cause but my pockets ain't that fat that I can be splashing out hundred + $'s for a cap. Besides them New Era caps make me look like a retard. I got a pea head. But it's nice to see that there aren't any up on ebay...yet (ultimately greed will prevail and some fcukers will be auctioning them off at stoopid prices with proceeds going nowhere but they wallets).
