I have a love hate type thing for karmaloop.com, but I am kind of interested to see where this goes. KL is running a little audition type thing for the underground brands out there. Not a lot involved, just some images of your product and a short bio, if they dig your stuff, it seems you get a lot in return. Some brands will steer clear of this type thing, for others it looks like a great opportunity. More info here

The Outsider



Besides Lupe's album, DJ Shadow's album The Outsider dropped today, and it blows Lupe and every other record that has dropped in the last ten years out of the water. What you just read was the biggest lie I have ever told. I wish I could say this album is great, being a huge Shadow fan for years, but this album just doesnt appeal to me at all. But then again I am the type of Shadow fan that is waiting for an album like Entroducing. (which I happened to get a poster of for my move in on wednesday, very happy about it) But instead I got a Shadow album thats all about the Bay area sound, full of Keak Da Sneak and Hyphy for days, just not my thing. It sounds nothing like a Shadow album, and I respect the fact the idea behind The Outsider was to be different from any previous albums, and althrough there are some tracks that are pretty good, I just can't get into this album no matter how much I want to. I am hoping his LRG collabo is way better then this album. But if the bay area sound is your thing, check out Shadows new videos here and here.

Lupe Fiasco's Food and Liquor


Well..I have to say..This album is really good..I was really impressed..Someone dropped it off at Blades today so we bumped it for most of the day..People were feeling it..With the album being produced by Rell..Jay..and Kanye..You cant not like it..Songs are good..And its a lot different than the album that leaked..Go out and cop..

The Clear Hoodie


Check out what the people Home Room Clothing created, a clear full zip hoodie, dope. Home Room Clothing for more info.

Foot Patrol Air Stab @ Alife


Alife has stocked Foot Patrols second Air Stab. The first Air Stab they did was a great colorway, and this time is no different. I really am feeling this shoe.

blahhh..




Yeahh..I don't know what it is..Today just has been a shitty stressful day..Usually normal people would tell you why they're stressed out..But I could not tell you why I am..Maybe its caz I'm missing my famo..My dog..My girls back at home (Mackin..Tiner..Mags..)..Plus I really need a haircut..I don't know..I'm not turning emo on you guys..haha..But when shit gets rough..I just go skate around BK and peep the Manhattan Skyline..For some reason that brings me back to reality and makes me realize why I'm here today and why I'm in school..Well that's that..Just had to get that off my chest..atleast Necro's moving here next Wednesday..


New York...




The weather has been nuts..It really is terrible..Rainy cold..Then its sunny and warm out..Well thank god today was a beautiful day..And check out what I passed by on E50th street..

KB Off Ice Cream?!


Well Rumors do get out..And yesterday when I was around NYC I heard that Rell asked Supreme to shoot in their store and they said Fuck Off..Or whatever..Then some other shit with KB happened..blah blah..Well I hit up KB to ask him..And none of that shits true..So if you heard any of it..That's the truth..Figure I'd clear that up..

Banksy


Banksy's Barely Legal show has activists going crazy. Being a huge fan of Banksy and graf in general, its amazing to see how much press he is getting right now. I am pretty sure every blog on the net posted his Paris Hilton album video and now the LA times is all over his latest show and his controversial live elephant installation. Whatever your stance on that topic is, just check out some of these pics. More info here and here via The Commish or TTL

205

Full Print parka season: Real Mad Hectic!


Full print is all the craze this season and by no means is it dominated by Bape; this dope hoodie is by Real Mad Hectic, a slowly growing streetwear company that is sold sparingly at Recon/Nort and other satellite stores around the world. The colors are loud and the design is simple but eye catching. Revolver will be up next with the Mad Boys and Donut full print hoodies, followed by Saru's "Monkey" camo and Recon with their re-release of the Money hoodies. Keep an eye out and don't sleep!

What The..


As I was heading home..I passed this in the Transit Window..Look familiar?..And no..They do not carry BBC..Its called "Trac..Or Track"..Something along those lines..Its basically a rip off Diamond Dollar hoodie..And it goes for 75.00..Weak sauce..

New Era x DC Deck..


I didn't get to take a flick of the New Era x DC skate deck they made for the party..Its very interesting..They had the invitation on the bottom of the deck..And a little brief description of how New Era and DC started..I tried to let Ant lemme get the deck..But..Yeah..That definitely wasn't happening..

Polka Dot Pack..


Yesterday the Polka Dot Pack dropped at all the Tier Zero account shops..DQM and R3CON had a pretty good size run left over..I know a bunch of people lined up for it..Guess it all didn't sell out..
