Raw E-Magazine


Read 'Raw'

Recently, I was introduced to ‘Raw’, a digital magazine with a diverse range of articles, topics, and discussions.  Raw E-mag is an online publication dedicated to the best in lifestyle, music, and fashion.  Check the method.

One time, at Band Camp…


Bandcamp.com

Every artist in or out of the game has to have an outlet to publicize their music. For most right now that outlet is the over used, over saturated, easily manipulated myspace music. It’s just as easy to find a person with html knowledge to change the number of page views you have, and the number of daily plays as it is to pose as another artist, or steal their material. And even if an up-and-coming artist was legitimate, he has no way of telling who’s listening to his music and what their responses are to it. The music site Bandcamp.com aims to fix these issues, and has defiantly hit the bullseye. The site provides a clear-cut space to display your music with no limits as to how many songs your allowed. The artist or band can also get a very in-depth look at which songs their fans are listening to all the way through, partially listening to, or are skipping all together. The band has the ability to choose their own price for their song if they wish to charge, (with no money being profiteered by Bamdcamp), and can also see any and all links posted about their music from Bandcamp. This new site will soon become the blueprint by which many other music sites are built, trust me. I’m not just a spokesperson… I’m a member. The site is free, so check out http://www.bandcamp.com to set yours up, or refer a friend with an interest in their music being heard.

The Young and The Restless

Last night, I had the distinct pleasure of partying with one of London’s finest celebrity DJ’s. DJ Sam Young. He’s an amazing cat with ridiculous style, who is crazy on the tables. Click the pic to check out his website. (Shouts to DJ Roy Rovelli)

Haiti Aftermath…


On March 5th of this year, I got together with ‘School of the Hellas’ and ‘IzaTrend’ to hold a fundraiser for the Rural Haiti Project. The event was in San Francisco at Element Lounge… Here are a few pics from the event, all photographed by the lovely Ashleigh Reddy.

Freaknik Came and Went.


Freaknik as some of us may remember, was the massive party held in ATL during spring break at which students from all the black universities were in attendance. Now, Freaknik has a different meaning to those of us tuned into Adult Swim on the night of March 7th. Freakink was “resurected” in the 1 hour cartoon special ‘Freaknik: The Musical’ staring the voices of T-Pain, Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, DJ Drama, Lil Jon, and many, many more. You can check it out here. But hurry, it expires on March 23rd 2010.

Sleepless in Las Vegas


Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas

A vacation is something that anyone in the entertainment line of work is lucky to get.  Some of us grind so hard, 20 minutes away from our cell phones is a vacation.  Then there are others who will “eventually get a day to myself… That’s gon’ be the day they burry me, but it’ll come eventually” – Lil Wayne.  I however understand the importance of staying hard at work, but I can never say no to a long weekend in Vegas.  So when my good friend Marqus Crawford offered me a deal on a villa in the Planet Hollywood towers, I obviously said yes.

Above are a few shots of the Villa we will be occupying during our stay.  While I’m alongside Jade Davis, Erik Woodruff, and Marqus, I will be giving you a play by play on the action, activities, and adventures that go down from the 1st to the 4th of April.

Corey Haim dies at 38.


Now

Then

This morning at around 9 a.m. 80’s child star Corey Haim was found dead of an ‘accidental overdose’.  The police have not yet released the details of what he may have overdosed on as of yet.  Some of us may remember Corey Haim from movies like LucasMurphy’s RomanceThe Lost BoysLicense to Drive and Dream a Little Dream.

Watch Your A$$ on June 22nd.


A shot from the 6th season finaleAs many people could probably figure, I happen to be an enormous ‘Entourage’ fan.  The 1.20.2010 release of the mashup entitled “Pimpin All Around The World” (that can be listened to here) was my formal way of announcing how much time I spend watching that show while working at home, or when traveling.  I’m even happier now that the most recent 6th season will be arriving on DVD 6.22.2010, and the 7th season is scheduled to begin sometime during early/mid summer of this year.
