Train riding is a lot more gangsta than previously thought.

That's kind of why I have the 808 on the drums.
I think it's referenced enough that it won't go over too many heads.
(copy and pasted from wikipedia) The sounds of the TR-808 were and still are very often used in drum and bass, hip-hop, R&B, house, electro and many forms of electronic dance music. On the track "Super Disco Breakin" off their Hello Nasty album, the Beastie Boys quip "Make no mistake/Nothing sounds quite like an 808." In the Sublime song Cisco Kid from their album Robbin' the Hood, Bradley Nowell sings "The 808 kick is on my hit list/This beats cookin' like an Ital dish," and "The 808 is within my reach/The Sublime style is comin' straight from Long Beach." In the song My Posse's on Broadway, Sir Mix-a-Lot proclaims "The 808 kick drum makes the girlies get dumb." Outkast's Big Boi also boasts "Cuz' I know y'all wanted that 808/can you feel that b-a-s-s bass?" in the 2004 hit "The Way You Move." In Missy Elliot's 2005 release "Joy" she pays homage to the 808's capacity for beats that are lower than your normal bass drum by saying, "So I drop it low, 808 kick low," and famed R&B songstress Kelis told listeners: "I'm back with an 808" in her 2006 hit "Bossy." Most recently, singer Beyoncé references the 808 at the beginning of her single "Déjà Vu." 808 kick samples also provided the basis for the majority of the bass lines in early jungle/drum and bass tracks in the early to mid '90s, and continues to provide many to the present day, albeit often unrecognizable after extensive processing.

Concept I thought up, it's a take on the famous "808" drum synthesizer. Sketched it out, and I kinda liked it. Really only works on white.
design should be bigger on the shirt, maybe lower.
Probably not cutesy enough for most around here, but I like it.
