Ok I've been here twice already but it opens up tomorrow for the public. It's nestled in the Koreatown section of Los Angeles and features great drinks, great food and an awesome ambience. I mean it's not every night you walk up to the bar and bump into Nasir Jones, you know the legendary emcee you guys may know as NaS. I missed the tastemaker's tasting tonight but I know it's good. Hopefully soon I'll have a full write up for you as far as just the food. But for now check out this write up I found on the spot after the jump, oh and I have a slideshow for you there too.

Fresh Off The Boat With Eddie Huang: Miami Part 1 & 2

0 comments

I need to get back to Miami, luckily my birthday is in June; and I have some plans/schemes in the back pocket. But we'll get to that later. I fux with Eddie Huang and this series. I haven't really posted any of it to the blog but today that changes. Hit the jump to see parts 1 & 2 of his Miami visit. He of course checks out some great food but on top of that he meets Uncle Luke and hangs out on the BangBus. Oh and the girl from BangBus he takes out to eat. Can't say it's too many episodes where the host takes a porn actress to eat.

H∆SHTAG$ – Don’t Call It #AltRnB – Episode 1 [VIDEO]

0 comments


The H∆SHTAG$ series by Red Bull Music is a very compelling one, but I was sold on the first episode simply because it featured the homies Miguel, Rochelle Jordan and KLSH. Description below.

In this first episode of H∆SHTAG$, we take a look at the current renaissance of contemporary R&B in the "always-on" age, featuring former half of The Weeknd, Jeremy 'Zodiac' Rose, How To Dress Well, Miguel, Rochelle Jordan, KLSH, BadBadNotGood, and more. How has the Internet inspired and galvanized this new breed of artists? Have online communities and media been too quick to label genres and movements? What does the future hold for the many strains of the R&B genre?

H∆SHTAG$ is a new series of mini-documentaries from the Red Bull Music Academy, chronicling some of the most fascinating themes emerging from the web in recent times, from #cloudrap to #seapunk, #postdubstep to #advancedpop.

Now this post isn't suitable for all ages, but I'm an adult so no fucks are given. And yes I have no problem telling you I've seen porn and that I dig Lisa Ann. A 21st Century MILF...I have my reasons, lol. Anyways it looks like she collaborated with the homies at FLüD and Village Slum. It was photographed and directed by Mel D. Cole and it's in correlation to sports. Good enough for me, I mean Lisa Ann is rocking some Jordans and mostly nothing else, LIFE IS GREAT. Hit the jump to see the promo video and some of the trading cards. The alley-oop from Shake tho.

LOS ANGELES LAKER UPDATES: Kobe Torches Mavs, Smokes A Cuban

0 comments


It's been a minute since you got a sports update from me, but I'm at the Los That Sports Blog HQ so it seemed right. Earlier this morning, some of you Angelenos may have been sleep, Kobe marched into Dallas with a small chip on his shoulder. After Mavericks' owner Mark Cuban made some comments earlier in the week about the Lakers amnestying Kobe. Well Kobe decided to answer with 38pts, 12 rebounds and 7 assists. He also hit some impressive shots down the stretch. Case in point: my twitter avi. It was a tightly played game and Dirk gave some nail-biting moments but the #LAKESHOW made it out. Steve gave us a dub, and despite only 9pts, Dwight's defense helped tremendously. After the game, Kobe tweeted "Amnesty THAT". Yo Cuban, the streets is watching, and the tweets is too. Hit the jump for highlights.
