T.Shirt & Darvin Silva Present The "Tan-Face Children EP"

There's nothing better than making something with your friends. Sometimes, I just gotta forget about the outside world listening in and remember who I really made this for first and foremost. When I've rapped for myself in the past I never got the kind of response I wanted.. it's only when I rap for us.. when I take how I feel, what Darvin goes through, Dred, how Ronin's felt, my brothers.. I'm just trying to tell our story.. and I'm just trying to get it right.. inspire us. I think J Cole said it best, "My story ain't the only one I'm trying to tell" - that shit just rang so true to me. We are the tan-face children. We are the pioneers. Maybe you have to know all of us to understand.. maybe it gives you a familiar feeling.

The Tan-Face Children EP is being presented in a first time ever collaboration with The Connoisseurs Of Culture, a progressive media collective comprised of, Different Kitchen ( and - shout Stone, Ian and Benhameen for all the dedicated promo on this. Much respect guys.

A huge thanks to Dred (of Hot Mop Films) who took all the photos, and my man Fern, one of the illest designers and color specialists in the game (not the rap game, ha!). Fern actually has a couple of crazy before and after shots worth seeing here.

*Music Mastered by Julian Silva for On Air Mastering in Brooklyn, New York.

And finally, last but not least I wanna thank Blue for real man. You have an incredible ear for awesome music and impeccable timing. People have no idea what they're in for when it comes to what Darvin Silva can bring to the table. I'm in it for the long haul my nigga ! I couldn't have done any of this without you. Remember.. you beat me in handball once in your life, by two points, and it will never happen again
