Sometimes the smallest things matter the most, hence the photo.  This was not on "The Marathon" however it supposed to be on June Summers' new project "Hookman for Hire".  Either way this track is dope...a different sound for Nipsey but it works.  This will be in rotation.

Nipsey talks with Bootleg Kev on a couple of current topics, most notably some comments on Dr. Dre after we've seen his gravitation to Kendrick Lamar recently.  I know media misconstrues things alot so I see why people tried to make this a controversy but it's up to us to listen to these things and take away our own conclusions.  Check it out.

STRONG ARM STEADY f/ CASEY VEGGIES & PICASO - DO YA THANG GIRL

0 comments

#JOOK.  Originally the beat was for the 1982 project but as future project with Statik Selektah came to be this didn't go down. Well the beat did but not for Strong Arm Steady.  With the unfortunate passing of Teena Marie it seemed like the right time to let this go.  Picaso and Casey Veggies bless the track as well.

DR. DRE f/ KENDRICK LAMAR - AT THE LAKER GAME (PHOTO)

0 comments

Compton, Compton...pay attention folks.  The highlight of that game was not our Lakers but of the legend Dr. Dre with arguably the Rookie of the Year Kendrick Lamar courtside.  In a short time Kendrick has been in the studio and making public appearances with Dre.  Crazy right?  Not only that he was mentioned on NiceKicks in the caption.  Not Dr. Dre and guest, or Dr. Dre...it said Dr. Dre and Kendrick Lamar.  Obviously many folks know who this kid is.  Dope.  Sidenote: too bad Brandon Jennings didn't play.

KRINK x EXIT MAGAZINE x ABSOLUT (VIDEO)

0 comments

Want to know how we got here to the above?  All you have to do is watch and read below...simple right?






With the bottle as his inspiration, Krink has created fifteen individual custom-designed ABSOLUT LIMITED EDITION bottles, with each 70cl bottle being uniquely customized using the artist’s signature; KRINK ink, in striking black, silver and white.
Stephen Toner, Editor of Exit Magazine said, “Exit’s relationship with Absolut spans the past decade. Both share a unique vision of imaginative partnerships with artists and groundbreaking projects. This Autumn/Winter issue we commissioned one of Exit’s favourite street artists, Krink, to bring his creative ideas to life and make the present exceptional with his own interpretation of the ABSOLUT LIMITED EDITION bottle.”
Krink commented, “The shape of the Absolut bottle is a design classic; I wanted to treat it as a sculpture. The bottle shape is iconic enough to represent their brand without showing their logo. The interaction between the drips and the bottle bring two iconic elements together, one helping the other.”
