If you know about Tokio on Cahuenga u know it was a cool low key spot to hang and have as an alternative space to the picky, so called elite Hollywood scene.  Well now the place has been revamped and renamed.  Tokio is now ECCO, the 1st nightclub to GO GREEN (I mean valet is FREE if you drive a hybrid).  Word is everything in the place is recycled, salvaged, organic, energy efficient, etc.  They have organic food to dine with and organic gins as well as a signature drink: Absinthe-Minded (which is organic yet still may cause hallucinations).  ECCO has several huge sponsors including: Heineken (Dom let's go), FIJI water (Randi), 944, Monster Energy, 360 Vodka, just to name a few.  The soft opening was last night...couldn't make it I was too busy tearing down a private party for Microsoft with Convinced (photos coming soon)...the official opening won't happen until sometime in November.  So if you want a private party, go for it...if not just wait.

This house caught my eye because it looked like a video game character's then i check it out over at ArchDaily and I was like this spot is fly.  And I had to put it up for the simple fact that it's a fly home in the city...Pacific Palisades to be exact.  It's got views of pretty much any area of LA.  Now what would it take to buy this place...hmmmmmmmmm.  Designed by Johnston Marklee & Associates and completed in October of 2004.  You gotta love it...

In Downtown L.A. on 138 N. Beaudry Avenue is CANVAS L.A., and when I came across the website and saw the photos I thought this was pretty cool place to live. The modern look is real fly and the color schemes (for the complex and units, not the website) are easy on the eyes. The building even has a social lounge: Lounge 138, which is an outdoor/indoor place. There is a resident's club with billiards, gourmet kitchen, 2 sided fireplace and multiple plasma TV's. Screening room with 100" screen and 7.1 surround sound. Spa, cable, Rooftop Cloud Room, stainless steel appliances, and more...just go to the site for more details. I think I want to move here soon....



Now Lil Wayne isn't LA at all except for his love of the Blood Gang Culture and his alliances with Game, Mack 10, G. Malone & Jay Rock...but when FCC connect Kev sends me stuff...I feel obliged to post it. So peep, and get a lil mental getaway to New Orleans. Plus I know some of ya'll got fam from Louisiana...I know I do.

E Dub caught this exclusive footage last weekend while I was trapped in Vegas...sorry I missed the shoot.  So to make me feel like I was missed...he shot me this footage.  AHHHHHH, that FCC connect.  Pt. 1 finds Tunji MORE than gettin' it in.  And in pt. 2, El Prez, Convinced & Grizz (of the Bunch Wreck Crew) follow up and get theirs off as well.  West Coast being repped well.  Enjoy.

Thanks! 10/27/08

Miguel gives a shout to all the supporters who came out to Hush this past Sunday. I heard the show was dope...I was supposed to be there, but when u go on a road trip and it's not your car...getting back when you want isn't always an option. Oh well, the rumor is that Migs will be having these shows at least once a you know I'll keep you updated right here. Until then, I'm bumping that Mischief Mixtape.

CNTH x KNOWxONE: KNOWxONE's Business Mixtape


Part of the FCC, the homie Ges of KNOWxONE laced me with the new mixtape. Peep below to get the rundown on this quality work:
It's finally here! After many months of preparation and collecting various tracks, tweaking the mix, switching up the tracklist and getting drops - it's all finally come together. The first ever, official KNOWxONE mixtape. I got together with my boys from Nocturnal Sound Krew whom have 2 back to back ITF World Championships under their belt because we did not want to put out a half-assed product. With all the mixtapes that are coming out everyday which are more or less on the mediocre side of things, we wanted to bring you back to the essence of the DJ - keeping it 100% Hip-Hop. We didn't go too overboard with the cuts & scratches, but it's subtly there. It's the little, smaller details that we hope you will notice & appreciate. Clocking in at just under 50 minutes, this mix takes you on a journey through some of the dopest songs that got it's swag on a 100,000 trillion, which have been gaining notoriety in the blogging community, as well as a few rarer tracks & exclusives. This is a first in a monthly series we will be pushing, so this is just the beginning. I hope you all enjoy this mix for what it's worth.



Convinced | Miss Memory (Prod. by J-Trax) from Convinced Music on Vimeo.

As you know Convinced has been at work dropping freestyles everyday in preparation for his project: Refreshing.  Well here is the video for the lead single "Miss Memory".  This track stays in rotation.  Peep this and send to all your friends.  PEACE!!!

GOOD FOOD - RIVA (in Santa Monica)


Riva opens today in Santa Monica, located at 312 Wilshire Blvd.  This spot is the sibling to Culver City's Fraiche.  The spot boasts intimate seating, patio seating...a small lounge for unannounced stop ins or go to the "pizza bar".  All in all, it sounds like a good date spot or after work drop in with co-workers.  Lunch is not yet available but will be in the coming weeks.

UPDATE:  The restaurant pics were taken by Eater LA, I didn't pay attention to that when googling for restaurant pics.  Hopefully they are happy now.  Apologies to Lesley.
