NEWS: “THAT’S ROCAWEAR” – RECOGNIZING THE EVOLUTION OF HIP-HOP

ROCAWEAR has been running a campaign entitled THAT’S ROCAWEAR over the past few months, which acknowledges the evolution of hip-hop culture through various artists and groups. I thought this was dope, so I figured I’d direct you all to the site where videos featuring acts like KARMIN, KENDRICK LAMAR, JASMINE SOLANO, L.A., and more.

You can also check out their YOUTUBE page directly to check out what this campaign represents. Very cool concept, I definitely dig it.

VIDEO: THE WEEKND’S “HIGH FOR THIS” VISUAL – SHOT BY UNKOMMONKOLOR

The Weeknd is all the rage these days as his mixtape/album/EP/compilation “House of Balloons” is taking the nation by storm. “High For This” happens to be one of my favorite songs, so it was only right that I post the video that Jeremy of UnkommonKolor shot for the single, which features Sam With The Hair (yes, you have to say the whole thing; it’s similar to A Pimp Named Slickback).

Anyway, the video’s unofficial but it fits both what images The Weeknd has put out in correlation to the music. Very provocative but tasteful so two thumbs up to the UNKO crew!

PEEP: “LONER DAZE” – SORE LOSERS @ NUVOLA (SXSW)

I’ve been covering all things FreeLoaders since December of ‘09 and I’ve always wanted to see Blue and Brown do their thing live. I was finally able to fulfill this during SXSW and had the bomb ass time I figured I would have at one of their shows.

As their band, helloeARThlive, set up, Blue gets on stage to feel out the crowd, which was chockfull of folks from their hometown of Dallas, then suddenly Brown appears on the bar and starts breakin’ it down. Hilarious. Blue starts us off with “The Deadly Intro” showing off his hip hop swag then Brown runs up on stage to finish out the song and the show goes from 0 to 60.

Going through their catalog including a couple songs from their forthcoming project, “Get A Life”, the SXSW audience is treated to a hip hop show unlike any they’d ever seen previously. As they performed, both George Young and Brian Blue (of UnkommonKolor fame) were spontaneously pulled onstage to perform (“Favorite” and “Cooler Than Coach K”, respectively). Dope shit, I love stuff like that! During their last song, “8587 (Birthday)” – which is my favorite song and I went IN as soon as the beat kicked up – Blue jumps off stage and gets hype with the people…and shoulder bumps me in the process. HARD. My glasses were crooked on my face but I was still goin’ in then me and Blue rock for a second as he helped me keep my balance. I’m little, so I will fly across the room if I’m bumped too hard. It was all love, though.

Our encore came in the form of fellow Dallas natives ADd+ jumping up onstage to perform “LikeAMug” and they got LOOSE. Ol’ boy’s heel got my left leg somethin’ serious and it still kinda aches…but I’m a G so I didn’t cry or anything like that. I’ve come a long way since my crybaby childhood.

When it was all said and done, the Sore Losers show became the highlight of my stay in Austin and I was appreciative of having the opportunity to support my guys in the flesh for once. They’ll be headed your way soon enough, so be on the lookout and get swagged out when they come around.

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY: “LOVE FACES” – TREY SONGZ

Continuing with the love theme for today, here is Trey Songz’ new video for his latest single, “Love Faces”. I actually like this video; the concept is dope and the sexuality is toned DOWN for damn once. Kudos, Team Songz; you got this one right!

Tonight is the last date on Trey’s Love Faces tour and he’ll be tearin’ down Chicago to close things out. I saw him Friday night at MSG and the show was dope. Trey’s come a long way and I’m a proud fan, as always.
