In 2003, Jay Z and 50 Cent went out together on the Rock Mic Tour. Jay had recently released The Black Album, his eighth LP and last before his first retirement, while 50 Cent was hot off his debut, Get Rich Or Die Tryin'. The tour lasted nearly the entire summer, stretching coast to coast from June until August and it also featured a changing lineup of great openers: Missy Elliott, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, and many more. Anyone who saw it new it was a legendary show, and anyone who didn't wishes they did. But if you're wearing the shirt from tour, no one will know the difference. This original Rock The Mic Tour shirt, with a vertical storage mark, is from the 2003 tour featuring Jay Z and 50 Cent.
