K. Vincent

Uptown Chicago, a vivacious area in a major, metropolitan city, yet often overlooked in the music industry. Hustlers, killers, and people on the 9 to 5 grind all struggling for a bigger piece of the pie. Welcome to the world of K. Vincent. Brilliantly spinning tales of firsthand knowledge of the street life in a way that can be embraced by everyone from students to street hustlers, K. Vincent breathes a breath of fresh air and honesty back into the Midwestern hiphop scene.

I've had the pleasure of working with K. Vincent off an on the past year and actually was able to record a few of his songs off his forthcoming/debut album, "First. Last. and Only"...I can't help but support what the kid is doing. He's incredible and has successfully found the balance of appreciating the old school and while attending the new.

Get hip to him now or prepare to play catch up.

Concept Car: Honda 3R-C

I've yet to make a post regarding automobiles, which is strange because I was always into Lowriders as a kid. This, however is different. I've always been interested in concept cars which is why this feature is on the Honda 3R-C.

This is a 3-wheeled, single person, battery run, electric car designed by Honda to debut at the Geneva International Motor Show 2010.

"This revolutionary three wheeled battery electric vehicle concept shows what a future minimal urban transport vehicle for one person might look like. The battery electric drivetrain is mounted low in the three wheeled chassis, therefore keeping the centre of gravity low and thus improving stability.
The 3R-C has a clear canopy that covers the driver’s seat while it is parked and not in use. When 3R-C vehicle is in motion, the canopy becomes an enveloping wind-shield that provides the pilot, who sits low in the vehicle, with significant protection from the bodywork and doors.

The high sides of the safety shell seat give greater safety to the occupant, reducing the threat from side impacts and improving weather protection. In front of the driver is a lockable boot area, which gives significant secure storage for luggage or other items. The 3R-C’s designers created a flexible cover that surrounds the upper torso to reduce exposure to bad weather and improving comfort.

The 3R-C study was created by European designers working at Honda’s Research and Design facility in Milan."

Japanese denim Edwin coming back to the US

These jeans will range in price from $225 to $700.

Edwin Jeans traces its roots back to 1947 when the founder Yonehachi Tsunemi began importing foreign denim into Japan. In 1961 Edwin produced its first pair of jeans in Japan. Since that time, the company has grown into one of the largest Japanese denim brands in the world. The promotional faces for Edwin include major Japanese and international celebrities like Brad Pitt, Anna Tsuchiya, and super-gal Tsubasa Masuwaka. -

Enjoy a few pics from the Edwin catalog courtesy of Edwin Denim

Japanese Premium: WIN RV – Straight Cut

Japanese Premium: SEN Edwin W-Craft

Japanese Premium: SEN Selvage – Skinny – Without Cinch

Yao Ming Transformer's exactly what it sounds like.

I'd describe it but a picture is worth 1,000 words (or in this case 'characters'...get it? B/c it's from China...nevermind).

Someone pointed out it looks like Sly Stallone and I agree but whatever.

I'm probably gonna cop one when it drops in the states or have one of my east-Asian friends snag one for me.

Travie McCoy - Billionaire ft Bruno Mars (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

I briefly met Travis [of Gym Class Heroes, for those who don't know] at a show in Pittsburgh, PA with K-Os. I think because he's in a band people sleep on his rhymes (aka Blackthought syndrome) but dude is nice.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

"Lazarus" album drops June 8th.

Basically, I wanted to display some graphic work I've been working on.
