YG - My Krazy Life




I'm a reasonable enough person to say that I have absolutely no reason to gravitate towards certain types of artists; and YG is an artist in that category. That being said, it's November (nearly 9 months after its release date), and YG's debut album, My Krazy Life, is still in rotation. Music like this fills a void, and their aren't a lot of artists making quality "gangsta rap" (that term feels dated) music anymore (shout out to Nipsey). Keep the spectrum broad...

Raw Selvage Denim Overalls


A buddy of mine is trying to find a pair of quality raw denim overalls. Not this faded/pre-distressed pair as worn by Rikki Barton above, but a pair that he can rock and break in. The best I could find for him (bless is heart) is this Naked and Famous pair. If you have some better sources - get at me via email.

Cool photo essay from Ja Tecson up at The Hundreds as part of their Through The Lens series. Worth a look.

Rare Panther


I'd still rather buy some SLVSTR prints than rock his Rare Panther label (similar to how I'd rather bump some new Pusha T than rock Play Cloths) - but no offense to either venture. Check out the new lookbook here.

Reebok x The Hundreds


No lie - I've been waiting to get my hands on a vintage pair of the Dee Brown pumps, Orange ball and all. Check out Bobby's diatribe over the collaboration, aptly titled "My Mom Wouldn't Buy Me Reebok's" here.

Emily Blimcoe



Some of my favorite pieces of art are the ones where I say to myself - "Man, I could have done that! The fact is, it's not that easy, and more often than not, the artist is robbed of the credit they get for creativity, vision, and execution. Enter Emily Blimcoe. Love her stuff. Check it - more after the jump.

Ex-Liverpool winger Ryan Babel doesn't let the fact that he is playing for a club in Turkey stop him from launching a new clothing line, #YNWA. Video previewing the goods (and featuring some Ryan Leslie on the audio) after the jump.

John Culqui


I came across John Culqui's art during a family pit-stop to Nikau Kai Waterman Shop in Manhattan Beach, and instantly fell in love. Beach centric beach scenes full of references to the South Bay (El Segundo, Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach) in a pop art fashion - sweet. Check it out here, and support your local artists!

More after the jump.

Yes - I realize that the title isn't fooling anyone, and the Label of the post says it all. Bootleg Bart for the win! Sorry Mike, I missed my BB Anoynomous meeting this week - ha.

Life Advice: A$AP Rocky


A couple days ago, I recommended downloading Run The Jewels 2, and listening to Killer Mike's life advice. A$AP took note, and wanted to offer up some advice of his own relating to the holiday season:

"I prefer to go shopping after Christmas because the sales are amazing! I might have money, but why pay full price for something that's going on sale anyway? It doesn't make sense."

Death Row Records x The Hundreds


You know what I haven't done in a really long time? Bought anything from The Hundreds or from Death Row Records. That will all be changing very shortly when I purchase the black out version of the Death Row x The Hundreds collaboration. More info here.  Also - read a little recap of Jensen (aka HOT KARL!)'s run in with Suge back in 2000 here.

On - Cloud


Swiss based ON releases the holiday collection of the world's lightest running shoe, the aptly named Cloud. Weighing only 7 OZ's, it's actually not bad. More info at the Beast.

El-P + Killer Mike = Run the Jewels


El-P and Killer Mike re-unite once again for an album (not a mixtape - so purchase it on iTunes) as Run The Jewels. I've listened to a few times, and it's quality, and worth the $9.99. I could share a song from the album, but if you are familiar with either of their work, you already know the quality that awaits you. Instead, check after the jump for a 2 min video from Killer Mike (via Adult Swim) simply titled "Life Advice". I've been waiting for the right occassion to post this for awhile now, and it doesn't get much better than this - Killer Mike hits the nail on the head multiple times.

VICE has a pretty good photo essay entitled - Tupac Lives. Worth a click in my opinion.
