WHEN THE $ GOES…

Posted in Art, Crime, Life, Music, Politics on August 19, 2009 by RMJ

Wow, I was immediately taken back by this video. Im loving the black + white theme used, as well as it looking more like a mini-movie rather than an actual video. The lyrics do just that, by painting the perfect image, and director Parris executed it perfectly.

The opening scene you know is pure awesomeness, you know.

ENJOY.

XO IS MONUMENTAL.

Posted in Art, Music on August 19, 2009 by RMJ

Fresh off of his interview on WKYS with PStew and the One Nation Hip Hop Show, this past Saturday, Uptowns Finest XO drops his 4th mixtape effort. In conjunction with AB the Producer, who has deff come a long way sonically, and we deff respect his conglomerate.

This mixtape isnt the usual dark, raw, gutter sound we’ve come to expect from XO, but offers a new fresh & smoother soundm he’s created alongside AB. In my humble opinion, it definitely works.

We were the first to introduce XO to the blogosphere during this interview way back when and are extremely proud to see him making big strides in his career. With multiple mentions in the city paper and washington post alike, this young talented MC is sure to be making alot of noise in the upcoming months.

FF 041 Podcast – Phil Ade

Last Tuesday was Funkadelic Freestyles “preseason opener,” and since we’re using all these sports analogies lately – it was only fitting to bring in Mr. Starting-On-JV-himself, Phil Ade. Phil released an incredibly dope mixtape this past July with Raheem DeVaughn’s new boutique label 368 Music Group. We spent nearly two hours chopping it up with Phil and his mentor Dre the Mayor, which concluded with a ridiculously-long freestyle.

Hosted by Jamie Benson (aka jben.ok), Jay Promo, Unkle Scooty, King Carter, & DJ Jerome Baker III. Including special guests. Enjoy the 2-part podcast, and be on the lookout for weekly [abridged] episodes on the WRGW section of the iTunes music store.

ORIGINAL FAKE SHOELACES

Posted in Art, Crime, Design, fashion, Sneakers on August 12, 2009 by RMJ

Original Fake teamed up with longtime shoelace designer Stark Laces for these dope shoestrings. Stark Laces have been making some interesting shoelaces for quite sometime now but these really set it off.

Feel free to throw em in any pair of sneaker, ladies wrap them around your head, fellas use them as a belt for all I care. You cant go wrong with these chomper inspired laces.I see the blk/wht pair looking lovely in my black ballistic skate hi’s. Mhmmm

Just use them somewhere and everywhere except for hanging yourself and you should be just fine.
