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.
