Garfield x The Hundreds

(Via F5)

I’m no hypebeast, I can’t afford to be. I am a fan of streetwear though, especially when brands like The Hundreds pair up with my favorite childhood comic characters to make a line of clothing, apparel, and skateboards. I stumbled up on this at F5torefresh.com, a fashion and culture blog that has constant (and I do mean constant) updates on the latest streetwear, shoes, music, etc. Check em’ out when you get a chance.

P.s. - If you love me, get me the Garfield x The Hundreds crewneck, yeah? I’d love you forever…or atleast until they collab with my other favorite childhood cartoon.

In short, Quincy Jones makes Kanye West look like Tevin Campbell.
(oh, and Qunicy Jones is the father of Rashida Jones which definitely gives him some bonus points)

- My brother, Lico,  in response to me somewhat defending Kanye (See Quincy Jones quote below)

Haha, priceless

For entire tirade please see my facebook post.

How man? No way. Did he write for a symphony orchestra? Does he write for a jazz orchestra? Come on, man. He’s just a rapper. There’s no comparison. I’m not putting him down or making a judgment or anything, but we come from two different sides of the planet. I spent 28 years learning my first skill. I don’t rap. It’s not the same thing. A producer has to have some sort of skills that enable him to be a producer. It’s totally different to know what to do with 16 woodwinds you know from piccolos down to bass clarinet. It’s a whole different mindset. No comparison. None.

Uptown Swuite is back from his New Zealand tour and wasting no time getting back in the studio with DJ Flow to finish recording the next City Lights project, Church Street Blues. If you’re not familiar with Uptown or City Lights please do yourself a favor, stop hitting the snooze button and put their discography in your life. 
"Cause when the rain turn to sunshine, who would wanna spend they life, they life, they life…"
Can’t wait til’ this tape is done.(via latd)

C Plus x DJ Flow - G List (Feat. A.V.) [Prod. by Lee Bannon]

Yeah, I still write rhymes from time to time…no rhyme intended. This is the track I did with C Plus for his All On Me mixtape that Live at the DOJO released this past September. It’s funny, the first track that Plus and I ever got on together was a female track, it’s always good when we get together to write.

All On Me is now available on our YouTube channel, tell a friend to tell a friend to hit it up on your iPhone next time someone asks who the best up & coming MC is in California.

And just in case you haven’t downloaded All On Me yet —-> Here you go!

The original cover for Horace Silver’s Song For My Father that I did my best to recreate for yesterday’s ‘Father and Son' artwork.
How’d I do?
