DJ Caesar #WeekendWorkSXM - The Freestyles

Shout out to the homie DJ Caesar who's been making some Sirius moves lately (get it? because he cohosts on Sirius Shade45, Saturdays 10-12pm). BUT he compiled this awesome collection of freestyles from the Weekend Work show he hosts with Coach PR.

I'll let Ceasar and his music speak for themselves.

Hiatus "Save Yourself" MV [London]

Hiatus made one of my favorite songs in "We Can Be Ghosts Now" accompanied by one of my favorite music videos of all time. I've listened to that song like 50 times. Whenever life gets me down or things happen I like watch that video. The visuals affect me as much as the sounds.

I think because of the impact that song has had on me I was afraid to listen to his other music. I think I was subconsciously protecting myself from an "inevitable(?)" let down. That song found ME when I really needed it, But something about it made me click 'play' and I've already listened 5 times tonight. Forreal.

The beauty in music is in the interpretation and mood of the listener. I've been dealing with a lot lately with a death of a friend by heroin overdose and then fighting with one of my closest friends while he was medicating himself to cope with the death, among many other things. This song calms me down and makes me feel again when I felt numb after months and months and months of 'unnecessary' obstacles. But this video tells HIS story, too.

"A video for Save Yourself using archive footage of the last century of social and political upheaval in Iran: from the industrialisation program of Reza Shah to the revolution that unseated his son, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, and led to my family fleeing Tehran when I was barely a year old."

Thank you, Hiatus.

Buyer's Choice: "The Fly" Aviator Sunglasses

It's been a minute since I've done a fashion post, not sure why. Maybe it's because it didn't like summer til the last week or 2 (cloudy, rainy dreck). But these "The Fly" aviator shades by Buyer's Choice.

I've always been a fan of aviator shades. These would look good on you. Buy some.


Behind The Scenes: 50 Cent x Eminem "Patiently Waiting"

This was one of the biggest records. It still is a hit to this day. The buzz around 50 was INSANE. The kids born later likely won't see a genuine growth like this ever again. Dope hearing them explain the process of the song.

QM "Beaches & Bridges" ft Ben Waid & Eddie K [MV]

QM just reminded me I need to go back out west. I lived in NoHo for a minute but seeing those "Beaches & Bridges" again would be nice. Speaking of "Beaches & Bridges" and "nice" this video for the song "Beaches & Bridges" by QM is nice.

This is the first single off his "I Shoulda Been A Surfer" EP. This is where QM and I differ, after seeing that dude almost get murked by a shark in a surfer competition last week I'm good on that lol But hang 10, man. Check it out!
