So those geniuses at Undercrown (they also did that 2 Pac/Biggie There Can Only Be One tees a few posts back) made some tees for Adidas and who they believed would be top draft picks. There are more on Hypebeast, but I'm posting OJ Mayo because he reps that USC/Pac 10, and Eric Gordon is a Los Angeles there it is...but all the tees are fresh to me. Check em out.

U-N-I on MTV2 this Sunday

U-N-I aka YO & Thurz will be on MTV2 this weekend...peep an excerpt of the press release below:

MTV2 Concludes Sucker Free Week with a Drop from Thurz & Y-O Los Angeles, CA --- U-N-I drop their last single off Fried Chicken & Watermelon, "Soul Hop" on MTV2's Sucker Free Sunday, this weekend, June 29, 2008. With Sucker Free Week coming to an end, MTV2 is featuring a clip of the single from Thurz & Y-O. With their unique style and fresh sound, it's no doubt these two emcees are leading the new school of Hip Hop.

With fan favorite "Beautiful Day" already receiving heavy rotation on MTV2 and MTVu, U-N-I is steadily making their mark across audiences. After headlining the national DunkXchange tour, Thurz & Y-O transition to their sophomore project, A Love Supreme, with high expectations. Collaborating with producer Ro Blvd, the dynamic duo continues to bring true Hip Hop back to the West Coast.

Guess this is just in time for the video shoot on Sunday.

by skaybn
Man, I told fools since day one...SHAQ is the BIGGEST SORE LOSER EVER!!! A BIG BABY!!! The beef is long dead according to them this Shaq surfaces in a video from an NYC nightclub where he starts freestyling. In his freestyle he disses KOBE...okay Shaq u got one ring without Kobe...but u will not see another championship series unless u r riding an already stacked team's coattails...don't ever be mad he got that close without you and has the capability to do it a few more times...WITHOUT YOU. Guess Diesel mad cuz he left a lottery team for a team that said championship on it b4 he got there and became 1st Round exit after his Kobe haters love this one, Kobe lovers laugh at a whiner.

Crooks & Castles : Summer 08 Illuminati Collection


So the Crooks have a new summer line, and I dig it. I've always had a small interest in the whole Illuminati theories and the iconography of it all and how it relates to our capitalist society...but this isn't about that. I spotted this over at Hypebeast and I dig it so I figured post it...the pieces are pretty intricate. Supposedly you can find these pieces at Haven.

Spider Loc - Lean On Me (Young Buck Diss)

Looks like Spider Loc is gettin' in on the Young Buck/50 Cent melee...this is prolly 1) to build that buzz that Curtis said he would not do for anyone else on G Unit, and 2) to prove his allegiance and loyalty to G Unit (supposedly Buck put him on the Unit). Anyway Spider is from these archive this in West Coast Hip Hop.

U-N-I in the SOURCE

You guessed it...Thurz & Y-O are the Unsigned Hype in the Source with JT on the front. Below is a quote from the article:
"It's rare these days, but U-N-I – with its natural stylistic bridge between rap subgenres- is actually quite unique. So unique, in fact, that if major labels signed artists who broke molds instead of acts that fit into them, then Y-O and Thurzday might have never made this legendary column." - Chris Faraone, Unsigned Hype, The Source

Burn Hollywood Burn


Famous Universal Studios Hollywood's backlot caught fire over the weekend, damaging many historical movie sets. Space used to film Back to the Future and the King Kong portion of their popular Backlot Tram Tour were the most notable damages. As of now water pressure is being blamed for not being able to save more of the property and investigation into the cause of the blaze is underway. I don't think going to Universal Studios is going to be as cool this summer. For more details go here
