Hailing from Detroit, Michigan, Erika Mayshawn, the  model/entrepreneur is a force to be reckon with. She has been featured in videos by Dwele, to magazines such as XXL, King, Ironhorse, and Show and her measurements are 5,10″ 32DD- 25-38″. She was also listed in Playboys’ 100 Hottest Babes and was on the Spanish Playboy’s cover. But she is as intelligent as beautiful, utilizing her Fashion Merchandising degree for her business venture.

Rick Ross – Bon Appetit Freestyle & XXL Photoshoot.


People have many different opinions of “The Boss” Rick Ross, but no matter what anyone says, the numbers speak for themselves, and Rozay (along with MMG) are doing quite well.  I came across a video recently from Shutah Films documenting Rick Ross during the XXL cover shoot, that also showcases his Bon Appetit freestyle.  Check the method below.

The 2012 XXL Freshman Class.


In the past five years that XXL has been picking Freshman classes, never once has making the list been easy. This year included. Similar to 2011, the hype around the Freshmen Class has continued to grow by leaps and bounds, surprising even XXL with its popularity. For this class the buzz began earlier than ever, four months before the cover was even shot. And it seemed like everyone had a list. From subdued music fans to diehard rap junkies, from Twitter stalkers to industry heavies and featherweights, folks wanted their list to be the XXL list. Here’s who made the official roster.

  • Machine gun kelly
  • Danny Brown
  • Kid Ink
  • Future
  • Roscoe Dash
  • Hopsin
  • Macklemore
  • Don Trip
  • Iggy Azalea
  • French Montana

 

Mileena Hayes.


For whatever odd reason, I’ve been coming across more and more beautiful models with more pictures, and less background information.  As much as I try not to just have photos and put some real biographical information, a unanimous decision was made that Mileena Hayes had to go up no matter how little my staff could find out about her.  What I do know is that she’s been in the pages of XXL, Blackmen Magazine, Dimepiece Magazine, Maxim En Espanol, Hip Hop Weekly, Plies “Bust It Baby” Calendar, and many more.  She started out with a lingerie line, and after walking out at the end with all the models at multiple fashion shows, she was getting offers to be a model herself.  Excluding print, she’s been in the film “Still A Teen”, the BET Now Video Show with Lloyd, and in music videos with Trey Songz (Say Aahh), Red Cafe’s (I’m Ill), Method Man & Redman (Mrs. International), and Ghostface Killah (We Celebrate).

 

 

Tony Yayo Goes Planking?


Fads, trends, and things people pick up off of YouTube all come and go.  I’m not really sure who’s aware of it, or who isn’t, but this “Planking” trend is something that probably fits into all 3 of those categories.  I’ve seen pictures of Jenna Shea planking nude, and even seen my model buddy Carmel Candy planking in the middle of New York.  So while I can’t really say it hasn’t spread, I NEVER expected it to reach ‘The Talk Of New York’ – Tony Yayo, or for him to have a good enough sense of humor to try it while XXL was filming.  But I guess I’ve been wrong before.
