The Hundreds x Travis Millard

The Hundreds project with Travis Millard of Fudge Factory Comics is available instore and online now. I particularly like the Rampart T pictured above - featuring the art of a van. nothing says freedom or road trip like a suped up van! Description of the inspiration on this one via Bobby/Travis below:

"Travis Millard is a fascinating dude with a deep-seated affection for vans (pun-intended), probably stemming from the fact that he spent a significant amount of his childhood traveling around in one of these babies with his father. He says, “I’m sort of a fan of vans. Growing up my dad was a Wrangler jeans salesman, and we always had conversion vans. He would hollow the back out and drill metal bars in the ceiling, and would stack jeans and shirts and drive them to mom and pop shops around Missouri. I would go on trips with him sometimes…I would just listen to my rap tape on my Walkman and draw.” 

Check out the rest of the collection here.

Trinidad Jame$ - Females Welcomed

Trinidad Jame$ heads down to carnival in his native Trinidad for his latest visual offering. Much like the song itself, the video gets better at the 1:49 mark when the beat drops. Hip-hop is certainly embracing EDM, are you?

Stefan Janoski - Floral Digi-Camo

I caught a lot slack for not posting the recent Vans x Supreme collaboration (floral print on the SK8-hi, Era, and Chucka models) - but they were just too flowery for my taste. To me, they kind of had that "Grandma's bathroom" kind of look. Why do these Janoski's get the pass? Is it the silouette? The use "Digi-camo" combined with the flowers? Not sure, but for some reason, I like these more. A lot more.

When the sun rises...

“Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.”

Kid Cudi - Invincible

I LOVE this new Kid Cudi song. Not that I haven't been a fan of what he's done lately, but this is just on another level in my opinion. I want to say its vintage 10Deep Mixtape Cudi, but its different, its fresh, and I'm hooked. Looking forward to the next project.
