Free Weezy T-Shirt: A Shopping Guide For Lil' Wayne Supporters

Page 2 of 3

Option 1: The $28 Harry Potter Hoodie.

OK, a hoodie is probably a bad bet in Arizona. You've got, what, another two weeks to wear it at night before we all start sweating our asses off? But, even if you are into the hoodie thing, this is a pretty poor design. It relies way too heavily on Wayne's forehead tattoo thing from Tha Carter III record cover instead of the other physical attributes responsible for his Weezyness. Seriously, squint a bit and you'd almost think this is some Harry Potter shit. Do. Not. Buy.

Option 2: The $21.99 Ironic White Boy.

The last thing you want in a good "Free Weezy" shirt is something obviously ironic. This shirt isn't terrible -- if it was written in Helvetica font it'd be a lot worse -- but the clean, simple look is obviously designed for suburbanites who want a little urban flava without all that tacky bling. Pass on this one.


Option 3: The $14.99 'Mumia' Special.

This is a solid option. With a badass stencil-style font, a rough photo that doesn't seem to match the vibe and a variety of available colors, you could do a lot worse than this bad boy. However, this militant-style shirt could be for pretty much any imprisoned rapper. It's just lacking a certain Weezyness. Actually, it pretty much looks like an old Free Mumia shirt, which is pretty lame. Hold out for something better.
