It’s been nearly 45 years since Peter Tosh sang of “Equal Rights,” and his words ring even more true today. Tosh’s 1977 anthem, the centerpiece of his classic second album, also called Equal Rights, remains one of the most forward-thinking protest songs of all time with its powerful demand for equal rights and justice over peace.
To commemorate this timeless classic, the Tosh Estate has partnered with RockersNYC, the iconic streetwear brand headed up by New York-based, Jamaican-born graphic design OG Marcus Burrowes. Rockers doesn’t do a lot of drops but, when they do, you know it’s official. Pioneers of forward-thinking streetwear and masters of the visual culture clash, Rockers is one of a select few brands that have lasted for decades without watering down their aesthetic.
We’re hyped to be an official partner for the RockersNYC x Peter Tosh Equal Rights tee, available in short-sleeve (BUY HERE) and long-sleeve (BUY HERE) editions from the RockersNYC website, PeterTosh.com and, in an extremely limited quantity, right here. Both the long- and short-sleeve versions are dual sided, with Tosh and his red, gold and green chalice on the front, and the scales of justice and a Black power fist on the back.
