I'm writing this from my hotel room near Decatur, IL (SUPER phat room, btw. Do kids still say "phat"?). But anyway, I'm on the road with G-Unit's Kidd Kidd and he recently dropped his remix to Bryson Tiller's "Don't".

Check it out below and be on the lookout for his new mixtape dropping soon.

Hip-Hop In: Italy (Tokala)



For those who've been around you know I love and am influenced by international hip-hop and have my series, "Hip-Hop In" where I focus on foreign flavors.

Tokala is a dope MC from Rome and is creating an Empire of his own. Growing up influenced by everything from 2Pac and Biggies to Cat Stevens, Tokala creates his own unique sound expressing an urban state of mind with calm of nature. Check out his new video: "Enjoy the Ride" with KiroHz to see what I mean.

WOO, man it's been a minute. I've been on the road for a WHILE. Touring, traveling, SXSWing, and just finished my first magazine (will share in a couple days).

Jackie Chain "On The Run"



I first got hip to Jackie Chain when he dropped the "Rollin'" remix with Kid Cudi. That song is STILL my jam. Every tour I'm on I slap that. I love it. But he's more than a 1 trick track pony. I caught up with him at SXSW (see pic below) and he'd JUST dropped his new project "On The Run" and it's a slapper. Don't take my word for it...well...actually, DO. But listen, too and follow @JackieChain74




Rollin' Rollin' Rollin', I ain't slept in weeks. @Jackie_Chain #OnTheRun available now on LiveMixtapes.

Layla Khepri - "K.O.T.G." [MV]


I met Layla while touring with Reverie and Sahtyre last month. She performed in Atlanta and killed it. I was on the snap after a long-ass day in Austin, TX and saw she was in town and guess who walked down during the tail end of breakfast? It was great seeing her Layla and her Mmanager Lady Redz again and wanted to share her new video: "K.O.T.G.". Check it.

Catch her doing her thing on stages across the country. She'll be performing at the Southern Entertainment Awards next month in Tunica, MS (where I'll also be returning for my 4th time speaking on the conference).

Don't Quit Your Daydream [Ladies]


So, I have something to confess. I have an addiction. Sometimes I get on a kick and I can't shake it until I've consumed everything I can...I have a problem.

My most recent problem is...*sigh*...a friend introduced me to it and I was immediately hooked...I just can't stop watching Pretty Little Liars. It's So good!

Forreal. I love it. I watched 14 episodes in 1 day once (11 in a row). True story. But all losses of street cred aside, one of the actresses, Janel Parrish (better known as Mona in the show) has a line of shirts with a slogan I stand behind 100%.

DQYDD Janel Parrish Navy Triblend Sweater
50% poly 37.5% combed and ring-spun cotton 12.5% rayon
Screen Print graphics
Sizing: XS – XXL



And as seen above (and in the store) she has a dope tank (just in time for spring/summer) and unisex Ts for us menfolk, too.



I sadly don't post enough content for you ladies out there and for that I apologize. But this stood out to me. Not just because it's Janel and I'm fanboy on PLL or anything, but that slogan really means a lot to me. As a man who not only quit his job to pursue his company 100% but as someone who believes strongly in getting out of your comfort zone.

I can dig it. And you should, too.

Follow @janelparrish on IG {follow ME on IG). Check out her store with CZND.

Ro Ransom "Talk Too Much"



Ok sorry for lack of updates. I said I'd be posting updates from the road but things got so hectic on this tour I haven;t had proper time. But last night, while in NY, we were invited out to this show at SOB's. We chopped it up, got our VIP passes and went out. This dude Ro Ransom was on stage in front of a packed house and KILLED it. His energy, stage presence and music were dope. I ran into him as we dipped out during headliner, Jazz Cartier's set and briefly chopped it up. I went online and found his music and I'm watching a video, too.

Definitely a fan.

Eazy E / Stevie Williams Skateboard T Collab



Legendary skateboarder Stevie Williams announced his AYC apparel company’s new Skateboard Fresh collection featuring a limited edition Eazy E and Mike Miller collaboration. The new t-shirts feature an iconic image of NWA’s star Eazy E holding his infamous Natas skateboard in the parking lot of Ruthless Records, captured by photographer Mike Miller, a legend in his own right who captured some of the images that would come to define L.A. Hip-Hop. The new collection is now available online and in retailers.

Originally designed for professional skateboarder turned actor, Jason Lee, the Natas skateboard seen in the image is notorious for its symbols of violence, horror, and sex. “With the gun and that Natas board, this photo is some evil gangsta shit,” notes Stevie Williams (@steviewilliams). Lil Eazy E, the legend’s son, says seeing this iconic image reminds him how much he really misses his father. He says this photo being brought to life through AYC apparel makes him think of “his father’s legacy on a different viewing and how his impact goes far and beyond just Hip-Hop.”



“Back then skating and Hip-Hop did not mix,” recalls Mike Miller (@mikemillerphoto). The new collection is symbolic of the unprecedented impact Eazy E and NWA had on the skateboarding world. “The world doesn’t know, but us inner city Compton kids in the early age of life, enjoyed the sport on the skateboard my father gave me. I learned how to skate from him!” says Lil Eazy E. The huge, raw beats, underground punk rock ideology, and shared contempt for authority was what every skater never knew they were always waiting for. The echoes of that explosion still resonate in every corner of skateboard culture in their apparel, soundtracks and their outlook on the world.

Williams is proud to announce the new Skateboard Fresh collection, described as a line that evokes pure, uncut nostalgia, and that pays homage to the artists, styles and musicians that have influenced skateboarders and helped to define the soul of skateboarding itself.
