NEXT WEEK - A CHRIS FOCUS WEEKEND

1 comments
So next week resident artist Chris Focus will be burning up the Spliff on Friday night then will tear down LMU for his "Homecoming" ceremony. Rumor has it that he will perform two different sets for these back to back shows, so the idea is that you come to both of them. He will perform a couple internet favs as well as debut some brand new material. The LMU show will also feature other acts you've seen here like the Language Artz Crew, the homie TiRon, and the other homie H.O.P.E. LA STAND UP!!!

So Brand Jordan continues on this hit and miss ish...I mean the idea of the Air Jordan VII Hares recreated as an Air Jordan 1...I'm with that.  But seeing that my Flint Grey/Blue AJ XIII's were my f'in favs out of the XIII series...to see them abominated and thrown in the 6 Rings model makes me SICK!!!! But maybe someone will like these...SMH.

RIP EAZY E

0 comments

Eazy E as we all know was a pioneer and legendary icon in hip hop. Part of the reason NWA came to be which has put a heavy influence in the rap game, PERIOD. Dying an unexpected death as victim of AIDS (which some don't even think it was), Eazy left even that much more of a mark as a nation took heed of a problem in our communities that was as horrifying as the gang violence; HIV/AIDS. Representing Compton to the fullest and introducing that city to the world, he also was one of the first hip hop executives and discovered mega-group (at the time) BONE Thugs N Harmony. Because (without any details) my nickname was derived from this man, and because he is a historic figure in the Los Angeles culture (especially hip hop), I have to pay homage. RIP Eric Wright...salute!!!
