Artist Spotlight: Chris Barz (DMV Stand Up!) (New Song : YOU COOL!)



Chris Barz- You Cool (prod. Best Kept Secret)
(BPM Approved!)

BPM: Yo I went to High School (AP Statistics class to be exact lol) with this dude. Legitimate threat in the game, without a doubt. Best Kept Secret produced the majority of the tracks on Wale's Mixtape About Nothing. Along with his verbal skills, Barzio also writes and produces.

Check out the mixtapes too! Will Post up those links in a later post. But for the meantime enjoy some other joints.

Chris Barz- Metro Love pt. 1 (prod. Chris Barz)


Chris Barz- Never Ever (prod. Best Kept Secret)

Hot in the Streets: Maison Martin Margiela L'Incognito Sunglasses

Martin Margiela Sunglasses

These $560 shades feature a large wrap-around frame-less build. Aside from the style seen here, other colorways are also available. They definitely appeal to my inner rock star, but what do you think of them?

Kid Sister Does Married to the Mob's Spring 2009 Collection

Nitrolicious has some of the pictures from Married to the Mob's Spring 2009 ad campaign featuring Chicago rapper Kid Sister:


Kid Sister for MTTB

Bitch Better Have My Money Tee


Other Bitches Just Front


Clover


Princess


Varsity Jacket


The collection is slated to drop sometime this month, so be on the lookout for it at www.mttmnyc.com and in Alife stores to cop. Ladies, what do you think of it? Personally, I'm a major fan of the pairing of the cardigan with the Chanel necklace.




Unfamiliar with Kid Sister? Watch her hit video "Pro Nails" featuring Kanye West:

Heart Puzzle Revised

For the Art Heads

Like you, I browse blogs in my free time. During one of those moments of browsing, I came upon this art by Steven Wilson at Seven Spoon. I think it's pretty tight.

Up & Coming

In pushing our own clothing company (stay tuned for the Spring '09 lookbook), we also seek to showcase other fly companies. Today, I would like to put you all onto Dope Couture, one of my personal faves.




The Dope Couture mission is as follows:

At Dope Couture we know that family and friendship are the most important things in life. Yet lavishness, luxury and upper class bourgeois style have their place. We believe that luxury is, inherently, freedom and beyond that only a state of mind. We try to reflect this realization of luxury in every piece that we create.



Our goal is to bring that luxurious lifestyle to you, because everyone deserves the right to feel on top of the world, and not just the upper class. Our name signifies this oxymoron and we put a great amount of detail and thought into every piece that we design.



We have molded and shaped this brand to represent a sarcastic interpretation of upper class bourgeois style, high-class art and fashion, and street and pop culture. Every product we release is limited edition and in select color ways that we think embody our lifestyle and individuality. This brand would not be possible without the support of our friends and family. Thanks to you, we have not lost our desire to be passionately curious and creative. Thank you for allowing us to continue doing what we love.

We Know You've Seen Them: Kanye & His Crew in Paris

So unless you've been living under a rock, you know that Kanye West was recently overseas in Paris to view various collections for Fall/Winter 2009 as well as show the sneaker he recently designed for Louis Vuitton?







Kanye in Paris



*How do you feel about this look?*


A few of our thoughts/observations

  • How long do you think it took each one to get dressed?

  • Self styled or stylist?

  • Those Goyard and LV cases cost normal people a month's rent. Kanye is ballin', but are his friends?

  • If they were actually some sort of group, what would they do, and what would you call them?

  • Do you think you could roll with a crew dressed like this?

Blacks in the White House: What Will Barack & Michelle's Presence Mean for Fashion?

Will there be a sharp increase in Black models?




The Black Snob has a clip of a CNN story purporting that Barack Obama's presidency could signal increased opportunities for black models in editorials, ad campaigns, and on runways:









Do you buy this argument that having Barack in office will significantly diversify the exclusive fashion industry? Or will it continue to be a world where Black is Invisible?

Lambo Wars: Soulja Boy v. Bow Wow

I gotta admit, these dudes is funny.

Light Up The Darkness




This up and coming Chicago rapper named Master 3 has released his new concept album called Light Up The Darkness. It's a concept album based off of I Am Legend and it definitely is that fire. I know firsthand that he's got skill; he's worked with me personally on my track Major League, which will be posted here soon. Consider this your preview.
