Monday, March 10th, 2014


A-Villa is a self-taught Hip Hop producer out of Chicago, IL. He has worked with emcees ranging from Action Bronson to AZ, N.O.R.E. to Chance The Rapper, Kool G Rap to Big K.R.I.T. And most of the world has never heard of him…yet.

In 2014, A-Villa will release his self-produced debut album, Carry on Tradition via Chicago indie label, Closed Sessions. The album is a passion project taken to the extreme, recorded over the a 3-year span, and featuring a wish-list of emcees that includes Cormega, Action Bronson, Big K.R.I.T., Kool G Rap, Joell Ortiz, Chance The Rapper, M.O.P., AZ, Freeway and many more.

“A Hustler’s Soliloquy” features Roc Marciano and serves as a prelude to Carry On Tradition. It will not appear on the album, and is available now as a free download.

Official Lifestyle On The Lo…

Monday, March 3rd, 2014


The homey for life JaiSlayer plugged me to a website that is dealing Lifestyle items on the low and offering impeccable service to make you a repeat customer. I asked them if they could get the tigerhead reversible flight jacket and then bong it was here in several days.


The owner is a former collector himself but he doesn’t sell pieces like some of the current cutthroat dealers who are in the game strictly for profiteering. I appreciate that and I’ll be keeping my business with him for the items that are super rare and expensive.



Buze Bruvas Darts…

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014


Fresh off feeding us the Horsepower EP HIM-LO shot me some extra darts he had stashed away. HIM and his blood brother Clever-1 comprise the Buze Bruvas and in Philly style are a tag team of hard hitting emcees.

I posted these clips to the Youtubes to hopefully give them some visibility and versatility. Pass them off to your peoples if you’re feeling the vibe.

DUS Featuring Roc Marciano: Casino

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014


Here’s a Roc Marci heatrock that fell thru the cracks last year right around the beginning of the summer. NJ based producer DUS crafts some heavy shit that Roc Mar glides over like as if he was wearing ice skates.

I culled only the most hardbody images from the 1995 movie ‘Casino’ to show how everything in art just as in life is simply the survival of the fittest.

When it gets frosty in these streets you gotta bring the heat…

I’m popping tags on this RLX goose I scooped up during the summer from eBay and rocking it along with a beefy knit I excavated from the archives.


The Air Jordan XIs are also getting un-DS’d. Str8 HEAT!

Polo Sport big label shawl collar but I couldn’t find the matching hat and scarf buried somewhere in the archives. I said I was dedicate myself to finding the rest of the set but I started finding other shit I wanted to pull out. LOL



When I seen the homey SuperBad Solace rocking this goose I had to have it. I finally copped it off eBay for a buck and I was straighter than 6 o’clock.
