THEHUNDREDS.COM APPRECIATION POST!

Posted in Uncategorized on May 29, 2008 by RMJ

*WARNING THIS IS A LONG READ*

Let me start by saying, “we here are big supporters of the whole Hundreds movement, and have been for a long time.”

Ever since I copped my black Hip Hop Is Dead Tee from Up Against the Wall it was on.

(See tee below)

HHIDT

Everything from the brand, to the blog, to the gear, to the cookouts, and everything else in between, they are superior.

I check their site almost daily, when its updated often, and today they posted this one vid I had to re-post for the simple fact that all of us have either: worked on the retail side of the business, or have been the customer at any store front.

The number one rule, is to make sure your customer is satisfied at all costs.

But DAMN who likes to give good customer service to an asshole type of customer??

NO ONE.

So the genius’s over there at thehundreds.com made it extra clear and simple:

Make a vid of an asshole customer shopping…

1) because maybe, just maybe, the average asshole customer doesn’t know they have asshole tendencies.

and

2) let all the asshole customers know, we are all sick and tired of all you asshole/rabbit ass customers and you should stop your asshole tendencies immediately. ( or you will have a ripened mango flying at your face faster than the big train threw a baseball over home plate)

Now on to the feature presentation:

Sorry, I had to post the link but I couldn’t get wordpress to embed the vimeo video. SMH

P.S Wouldn’t it be awesome if we could have a video like this play on a screen before every customer steps in your retail establishment? It would be sort of like those theft protection signs, they only apply to those that need to see it.

TERRIFIC THURSDAY TO EVERYONE WHO HAS A CUP OF REAL MANJO JUICE EVERYDAY DAY!

A Memorable Memorial Day.

Sorry so late. Wale, his folks, and we decided (last minute) to set up a cookout that turned out pretty damn good. The day was pretty dope, shit even Big-G stopped by the spot (Stussy/Commonwealth) to get really fly real quick.

Now for the event. Alot of people came out and it was definately dope.

Props to 93.9 WKYS for showing love as usual.

Props to Magnificent Mo always holding shit down on the grille. As well as Jay.

I guess Bo allowed Zack to finally snatch a plate.

Props to these strong black beautiful women for coming through.

Goose usually does the trick.

Pour some more Goose. Props to the Best Kept Secret for coming through also.

Props to Tre from UCB bka”Mr. Sexy Lady” for coming through.

How did I know somehow, someway MastaMindDJ was going to get the new ink in a pic..or two.

No homo but the infamous KJJ and WIVAK = trouble for all the single (or not) ladies out there.

Props to Domo for coming through. By the way who said Stussy and Cmonwealth could have both their employees preaching to us about their new txting service! LMAO JK. Much love to Cmon and deff get at them on the txt game. Txt “CMONDC” to “69302” to get all the info you need to be fly. DO IT PEOPLE!

Wale and Kevin Durant. Is it me or do they remind you of young hov and lebron?

Hov x Bron

What did I tell ya’ll about WIVAK?

Props to Lavan (Everyday Pple) coming through .This man always comes clean in a polo and fitted like clockwork!

Dizzy got joints! HAHAHA.

Wale loves the fans…yes Gianne you are a fan (haha. kidding)

4 members of B.A.D KRU in the building or white tee lookin boys in the building?

Question of the day: How can people be bold enough to ask the person who provided the cookout and made everything possible, “How you get a plate before me slim?” CUZ ITS MY COOKOUT PIMP! And yes those LRG CARGO shorts are the shit.

Hungry asses. Food was extra good.

Homie Vernon and the beautiful Aja cooling out.

Time to say bye for the night. (leg up though? lol)

Good times.

Again, Big Thanks to this guy for making all of this possible!

Stussy DC SALE!!!

Intro. Kid Cudi.

Posted in Uncategorized on May 28, 2008 by RMJ

Every now and then, I get the complaining about how there aint really no new sounds no substance in music these days. South is glorified, raw talent is no longer appreciated (word to the top 10 list), and unless you fit the status quo in appearence and content, you wont blow. Homie Wale said it best when describing the state of hip hop and how you must conform in order to make a hit or even be heard. Dan put me on to this cat (he gets the credit for this post) and posted one of his singles a little while back and I was taken by the “newness” of his music. Dude is ill. I might be a fan…

Kid Cudi trailor ya’ll. (a KID named Cudi Mixtape coming soon)

got some ill shit on the site as well.

STYLES P APPRECIATION POST!

Posted in Uncategorized on May 28, 2008 by RMJ

First let me start off by saying Sirius radio is the shit! Props to my man DJ Dolfo who showed me the light.

They spun some Styles P that I was feeling OD hard (pause) and I realized this guy never comes short.

Looked for “new styles p freestyle”, this came up, and lets just say he murdered this as well.

Enjoy.

“The game got no rules, watch who you showing the  code too…”

Huh?
