RASHAD WHITE & THUNDERCAT

20 03 2012

These two pics were taken last month when M.A.F.I.A. rang me up to come hang with some of Erykah Badu’s crew the day after their Melbourne show. I didn’t make it to the show, but I did know who these two were. This guy below so happens to be Rashad White – someone who’s work with a lot of the artists responsible for the music in the golden age of hip-hop. He’s also Erykah’s official tour DJ.

This other guy below is Stephen Bruner aka Thundercat. On top of being part f Erykah’s ensemble, he is also a respected musician and producer in his own right – being signed to Ninja Tunes and all that. I asked him why ‘Thundercat’ and he said quietly … “Just look at me dude…”. He had Thundercat tattoos on both arms, logo on one hand, log belt buckle, fan t-shirt and feathers coming out one side of his head. Still didn’t answer my question tho..
