By now you've seen the video of Birdman's epic tantrum on Power 105's Breakfast Club—the New York radio show where hip-hop beefs are made and ended—and have most likely seen the Okayplayer video of the Hamiltones putting the now infamous scene into verse (see the video below).

You may have even seen the Nigerian vs Ghanaian Jollof Rice version (also below). Now you can have the T-Shirt. Our brothers and sisters at Okayplayer have released the official one hundred-percent-luxury cotton-blend T-shirt of the Birdman meltdown and it's available in the shop for roughly half the price of this Rich Gang T-Shirt which appears to be a collage of jet engines.

Listen to Femi Kuti's New Song 'As We Struggle Everyday'

Femi explains: "'As We Struggle Everyday' is about how hard people work everyday to make ends meet and still go to vote corrupt politicians into power who are meant to be in jail."

Femi Kuti shares his new single, "As We Struggle Everyday," the latest drop from the upcoming double album Legacy +, a joint endeavor with his son Made Kuti.

"As We Struggle Everyday" is a politically-charged afrobeat tune about people having the voting power to hold their 'leaders' accountable, but often failing to do so. Throughout the song, Femi sings "As we struggle everyday We try to find a better way See these leaders wey suppose jail Na him my people dem dey hail."

Femi explains: "'As We Struggle Everyday' is about how hard people work everyday to make ends meet and still go to vote corrupt politicians into power who are meant to be in jail."

Legacy +, which is due out February 5 from Partisan Records, includes a full album by Femi titled Stop The Hate and an album by his son, Made, titled For(e)ward. The pair have previously shared the singles "Pà Pá Pà" and "Your Enemy" off the upcoming release.
