Cattle Decapitation know how to turn a negative into a positive. Somebody pointed out to the band that a relatively unknown Soundcloud rapper, Teddy.YG had jacked the album artwork for their latest release, Death Atlas and is trying to pass it off as his own.
Teddy.YG literally just copied and pasted the band's logo, and then in MS Paint or something put his name on it. He didn't even bother to erase the band logo from the artwork. After the band called him out on it, he went on an Instagram tirade eventually alleging the band owe him for giving them the rub of…uhh… stealing their artwork?
Cattle Decap saw an opportunity here and so they released a shirt with the Instagram exchange on it. The description reads:
Recently, a rapper took the cover of our new album "Death Atlas" and used it for his mixtape. Didn't even bother removing our logo. LOL. So we are immortalizing this brazen attempt at notoriety with this one-time-only T-Shirt available for the next 24 hrs ONLY. Once its gone, its gone. Help us make a milli!
You can order the shirt for $19.99 plus shipping at their merch store.
