DP Does Dallas…

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

Sean P got me up in his entourage for this weekend to film video of he and Guilty Simpson at the KixPo sneaker and streetwear convention. How crazy is this that I’m finally getting to visit Dallas, Texas?

I’m only breezing in and then jetting out the following morning but I will get to visit the Cowboys new stadium and walk on the turf. My hypebeast meter is on a trillion right now. The biggest problem for me is deciding which kicks to wear.

Marcberg Reloaded…

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

I don’t think y’all heads are ready for the ‘Marcberg: Reloaded’ album. Y’all act like y’all are ready, but I don’t think so.

I think y’all need to listen to these joints from ‘Marcberg’ to get your minds right.

‘Whateva, Whateva’


Timeless Troops…

Saturday, July 28th, 2012

Timeless Truth’s logo is the realest graphic in the history of rap music. If you ever copped a tag inside a slant-face BMT line train you immediately recognize what I’m talmbout.

Super Bad Solace from TT gave me the call that they were finishing up the second video from their upcoming debut release ‘Rock-It Science’ and he wanted me to catch a scene. How could I NOT fly thru since he did me the favor of shooting the scene on Chocolate Snowflake’s front porch.

I met up with the homey Krash One at the Grand Army Plaza arch and we politicked on the state of culture while we waited for our brothers to roll up one by one.

Timeless Hess was next on the scene. He’s the youngest brother of the Timeless Truth fam (actual brothers) and Hess is brawlick as fux now. Plus he’s the shooter.

Meyhem Lauren and O-Prime arrived soon after with Solace and we all caught up on shit since everybody has been making major moves.

Meyhem puts some of his marvelous ad-libs on the tail end of this track just so you know it’s ‘Lo down.

Oh snap! The god Timmhotep makes a cameo.

Timeless Truth is the final piece of the Q-boro renaissance I saw developing a few years ago. These dudes are the five elements of Hip-Hop culture. The art, the fashion, the music, the entire lifestyle I live for is embodied by these dudes. Just wait until you hear ‘Rock-It Science’. As a matter of fact, go back and listen to the Timeless Truth EP ‘Brugal & Presidentes

NYC ain’t never left the rap game, the real shit just went underground to build up the troops. Heads ain’t ready.

RLXercise Lifestyle…

Saturday, July 28th, 2012

I’ve officially overdosed on RLX gear from the Spring 2012 programme. It didn’t help me either that Bloomingdale’s has been offering the ridiculous pricepoints on these items. The hoodie pictured above is now $25 (from $168). Heads have been sleeping on the RLX brand.

True, the RLX sports I.T.’s with more athletic cuts and shapes, but true to my aspirations I find the shit that fits, or I MAKE it fit. It’s BEEN past time for me to take the Cannondale off the wall and put it back on the streets. I finally got the money to make it right.

By the end of the year I should be rocking these RLX I.T.’s on the regulack.

My new nickname is gonna be ‘Sprockets’.

Roc Marciano: Thug’s Prayer

Friday, July 27th, 2012

I got a chance to listen to ‘Marcberg: Reloaded’ the other night and that shit is a banger. I decided to start re-listening to the Marcberg album which was the best Hip-Hop/rap album of 2010.

I took a clip from the seminal flick Cooley High to set the mood for this sullen, brooding track. ‘Marcberg: Reloaded’ will be dropping in October. Stay logged on for more info as I try to put together a show in the Highline with Roc Marcy, Sean Price, Meyhem Lauren and a few other surprises.
