[FASHION] 8and9 New Fall Collection – Rocky IV meets ’84 Olympics

1


It’s that time of the year where 8and9 releases their Fall Collection. We take a closer look at them in their promo video for the line. “The collection is heavily inspired by competition, dethroning champions and taking it to the next level. Rocky IV meets ’84 Olympics. Russian imagery is prevalent and the styles are stronger than Ivan Drago.”

New goods from 8&9’s Fall 1 delivery are in stores and online now!

Event Recap: MiaJamFest 2015 at LMNT

2ndannual

2ndannualThis passed Saturday, I attended the Second Annual MiaJamFest at LMNT. I would have to say this was over the top compared to last years event. The venue was big enough to fit everyone, a really dope line up of performers, amazing fashion from local fashionistas, and overall a great vibe. MiaJamfest provided a photo booth, vendors to get to know, and gift giveaways from Soles Inc. Man, they even had break-dancing, model runway, large projection screen featuring the talents of the night. Dj Bre killed it with the music he was playing. Shoutout to Webbz, Xali, Lady Llama, and Quest on their bomb ass performances. I have nothing but love for the coordinators of this event Ashley Jones, and her team of women who only work hard. I always have fun at MiaJamFest! If you missed out catch the photos below and if not stay tuned with MiaJamFest for photos/videos to be released.

New Music: Awkword – Headlines

28173f0db94b431a7ba8338dcd632e38.1000x966x1


cropped-awkwordrap_banner
Activist. Sociologist. Gonzo Journalist, Rapper AWKWORD world premieres his single HEADLINES on HIPHOPDX. HEADLINES was also produced by Beyonce’s “7/11” (OG) Bobby Johnson. Very dope collaboration between the two. AWKWORD takes us on a look back on what he’s done in 2014. From selling his album, getting compensated for a track such as DEEP SEA for The Ocean Project, and being an active protestor. I really like AWKWORD’s flow and tone to his lyrics. By the end it leaves us to wonder will AWKWORD have something in store for 2015? We’ll just have to be on the look out for that. Don’t forget to follow his social media links to get updated on what’s going on with AWKWORD: TWITTERFACEBOOKINSTAGRAMYOUTUBE
