It’s Thursday, so you know what time it is…
The shell toe will always go down as one of my favorite sneakers ever created, so simple but yet, so timeless. Brought to the mainstream in the US by one of the best hip hop bands of our time! Which became the inspiration for this weeks throwback.
Pete Rock & CL Smooth team up with the Kings, RUN D.M.C, to prove that they are “Down With The King”
This was the off the 6th Run DMC album, which was also titled, “Down With The King”
It was released during a controversial time in Hip Hop, a time known as the gangster rap era. Even though Run DMC were not considered gangster rappers this was their stab at hitting mainstream during that time! It was the last BIG Run DMC hit, gone but defintely not forgotten.
I will leave you with another joint, this one a little further back in time, a time when leather coats and shelltoes reign supreme. Undoubtably a classic for the old school heads on DM!
Anyone who is in the “know” in South Florida is aware of the festivities that take place every Thursday night in downtown West Palm Beach on Clematis Street. Once the sun sets the party begins, the local restaurants and bars open up the front doors, and people from all over South Florida come into town and begin to unwind. My two personal favorite spots to hang out and catch the action are Feelgood’s (which is owned ny none other then that man himself, Vince Neil), and on certain nights you can catch him down there at the bar having a drink. My other favorite watering hole is called ER Bradley’s, which is a great bar down by the waterfront at the end of Clematis. Either way you can’t go wrong. On this particular night a few exotics gathered at Palm Beach Lamborghini, and cruised over to Clematis St. to put their machines on display, giving the people an added bonus to the weekly festival that takes place on Thursday nights.
Came across this edit earlier today, and couldn’t bring myself to stop watching I’ve always been a fan of Lexus, big wheels, and classic reggae, so if you are into the same, check this out! If you would like to listen to the original “classic” track click here: (more…)
During the Live Feed for Formula Drift last weekend I was pleasantly surprised to hear the instrumentals for this song being played during the downtime. (Thx Live Feed)
The duo of Lil Dap and Melachi the Nutcracker became popular the the Gang Starr Foundation under Guru & Premier, and with Premier’s beats and Guru’s knowledge they quickly rose to fame in the 90′s. They have been relatively quiet with single releases since then but it was Premier’s beats that seemed to have really brought them to life back in the day.
On Thursday March 10, Hot Wheels™ lit up Circular Quay, showcasing groundbreaking 3D projection technology at Customs House in Sydney, Australia. In a spine tingling show, the notorious Hot Wheels™ Skull Racers shattered the facade of Customs House as they competed in the ultimate speed racing battle.
I have always been a big fan of street performances, especially the ones that do not have a huge production. You know, the ones that make you stop in your tracks while walking down a city street or some random park where the performers are just so good that you can’t believe their act wasn’t televised, or being picked up by a big-time production company. The ones I’m talking about are the B-Boys breakdancing / freestyling, drums being played on the pots and pans or garbage cans, sometimes it can be as simple as a mime making people laugh or just a random dude juggling balls. These guys have a talent, and their grabbing attention for tip money, or maybe just giving a performance for the sake of just showing off their skills, and not expecting anything in return. It’s those folks that make you realize there are still people out there doing what they love (once again) just for the hell of it, which is a trait that has began to diminish in recent times.
This is the reason why Tim Hahne’s video caught my attention, here they were leaving a shoot fot the new Mercedes R-Class with the intentions of just filming for the city life and trying to capture the essence of NYC. They came across a (“street performer”) drummer in the subway, and decided to remix his music so they could use it for the soundtrack to this video. They titled the video “The Beat of New York,” and without this remixed recorded sequence of drums, I don’t think the essence would have been acquired properly. The video turned out to be great, but the soundtrack provided the “essence.” Therefore providing proof that it’s not only the video giving the viewer pleasure but also laying down the right track in some cases that can be crucial to the signifigance of the subject. In this case that so-called remixed “street performance” made this video authentic NYC material!
Nice job guys, your work is appreciated!
A 20 yr old kid and his 19 yr old girlfriend were cruising somewhere in Germany and somehow lost control of this extremely rare supercar. From what I’ve heard the pair are OK, however I’m not sure if his dads wallet is feeling the same way!
