MOSCOT, the New York City institution renowned worldwide for its iconic eyewear, has joined forces with Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter, lead vocalist and co-founder of the Grammy winning hip-hop group The Roots, featured nightly on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, for a charitable collaboration that really counts.

MOSCOT and Trotter have designed 300 Special, Limited Edition Black Tortoise GRUNYA frames, numbered for authenticity, and gold stamped with Trotter’s signature, with 100% of the proceeds from sales donated to Trotter’s GrassROOTS Community Foundation, and The MOSCOT Mobileyes Foundation.

To debut The Limited Edition GRUNYA for Tariq Trotter, and raise additional money for both Foundations, Trotter, along with special surprise guests, will perform an exclusive, live show for the first 100 fans who preorder the frame on February 12th, 2015, at The MOSCOT Gallery and Music Space. In addition, fans who preorder will receive a raffle ticket for the chance to win two tickets to a live taping of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, with a VIP meet and greet with Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter.

“Working with MOSCOT to create this handsome frame has been a really special experience,” said Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter. “Not only is this frame a reflection of my own style, inside and out, but the ability to help sustain the important work these two foundations do is what makes this conscious collaboration really matter. I’m excited for our fans to be a part of it.”
