T.I. & Tiny – The Family Hustle.


Tip Harris has been a well known face in the Hip Hop community for many a year, but some of the decisions he’s made in his personal life since his entrance into the spot light have been a bit… odd.  Weather you’ve been waiting for it since it was announced, or never cared enough to remember hearing about it, T.I.’s reality show has almost reached the airwaves.  VH1 released a preview recently about the man, the mogul, and the myths that surround his mind-state.  Check the method below.

Real Life Vintage Mugshots.


I didn’t want to insult anyone’s intelligence by putting the words “Real Life” at the beginning of the post, but some of these photographs are so striking that many people may have thought they were designed to look this way.  From the writing on the photos to point out attributes of the criminals, down to the lighting and background of all these incredible pictures… one thing stands out to the most to me.  Back in the day, there weren’t too many black people getting locked up… (INTERESTING.)

Big Boi Arrested?


According to TMZ, Outkast member Big Boi was arrested in Miami today on charges of drug possession.  As posted by the Miami-Dade County Corrections Department, Big Boi (real name Antwan Patton) was charged with three counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.  The controlled substances were listed as ecstasy pills, MDMA powder and Viagra.  Law enforcement sources tell TMZ he was busted by customs and border patrol dogs as he was exiting a cruise ship.  He was booked into jail at 1:35 PM ET.

Funk Flex Arested And Released.


According to TMZ, Funkmaster Flex was arrested today in New York after a woman told police Flex pushed her, tried to break her phone and then sent her threatening messages. Sources told TMZ that cops responded to a domestic violence call from a 40-year-old woman in home in Westchester early this morning. ‘When cops arrived, Flex was nowhere to be found … but the woman insisted he went ballistic on her and left.’ Cops managed to locate Flex a short time later — and arrested him on charges of harassment, aggravated harassment and criminal mischief. Flex was arraigned in Greenburgh Town Court a few hours ago and was released on $500 bail … but he’s been ordered to stay away from his accuser — pending a hearing later this month.

Roadsworth.


While looking up some info on Amsterdam, I came across the work of Canadian stencil artist Roadsworth (Peter Gibson), and really liked it.  When it comes to something so simple, so raw, and so unique, I knew I had to throw it up.  He’s been doing his thing since 2001, using stencils to adapt the existing road graphics, mainly on the streets of Montreal, initially as a protest against the lack of cycle lanes, but increasingly as a commentary on car culture, oil dependancy and authoritarianism. I’m not sure how successful it is on those counts, but as a way of injecting a little wit and lyricism into the urban landscape, it’s the sh*t.  Check the method, and both of the videos on his work.
