Want to step your Creative Rec game up a tad...then you need to look more into: The Collection, Made In Italy.  Made with premium materials and straying somewhat from their more popular designs these are definitely more high end and elite...they just received a write up on Cool Hunting.  Peep it out and go to Creative Recreation and get yours.

EMINEM - 3AM (TRAILER)

0 comments

I thought it was creative and left field for Eminem to premiere this on Cinemax this saturday but after peeping the trailer...it makes more sense and doesn't seem as left field (not to be confused with less creative).  I'm looking forward to the visuals as it seems just as crazy as the track.  Check it out...if you don't have the audio then go here.

The homie Drew shot over some footage he took from the Eazee Street x DWB 1 Year event.  UNI and HOPE run through the Cali Soul joint and below that Faahz lends the beatbox to Thurz & Y-O's freestyle segment (always dope).  Next up is Chris Focus' party track, Get Loose which is actually produced by Dale Danja and flips the MGMT track Electric Feel.  Last video is a nice on the spot freestyle by Chris leading into Bop Like This 2.0 (prod by Jason Madison).  It was a great night with some great performances that people were talking about for days and was all over Twitter once it was over.  Check them out and thanks again to Drew for the continued support and footage.

Met this dude through my boy Kev from Hip Hop Official last week and he came to show love at the Floss Angeles video shoot.  Well he has an EP dropping that the FCC will definitely be bringing to you first, but for now check out the leak. Props to Kev. Here is our press release on it:

If the title doesn't grab you, the message will.  The FCC presents one of L.A.'s homegrown talents, giO Basicali and his song "Fuck Pluggin That Dumb Shit."  It's an anti-hype theme, taking aim at the media outlets and government that promote lies for money.  It also knocks.  It's the first track from his upcoming EP, I Choose You, presented by Acrylick Clothing, which drops for free on May 19th.
