While some folks like to mock the business model examples we talk about by saying that the future is just in selling looooooooooooooooooottss of t-shirts, the truth is that while the models involve a bunch of different things, we shouldn't mock the idea of using t-shirts as part of some models. It appears that Mos Def recognizes that. As a bunch of you have sent in, his latest album is being sold via t-shirt. That is, you can buy a t-shirt that will include the album artwork on the front, track listing on the back... and a code for a digital download. And even more impressive, he's convinced Soundscan to count sales of the t-shirt as album sales. Another cool experiment.
