My Mic Sounds Nice - Sneak Peek GTG

here is the promo...



Saturday afternoon I headed down to the DOWNTOWN INDEPENDENT movie theater in where else? Downtown LA.  I went for a sneak peek screening of my professional mentor, and dear friend Ava's film of MY MIC SOUNDS NICE.  This doc is about the Female MCs in Hip Hop and all the drama that comes with being a female in hip hop. It is an excellent doc.  Def check for it on BET.  Look for it in  your local listings.   Anyways...we met up and got to see the "director's cut" of the film and hang out on the roof for some old fashioned BBQ.  Great afternoon supporting a great project.  Here are some more snaps:

Fell into the HYPE....Dr. Dre BEATS - TOURS



So yeah I did it.  I pulled the trigger and picked up the TOURS.  I have spent many dollars on mid level headphones and always got burned.  Terrible sound, terrible fit and just no bueno. I hope these are the last headphones I have to buy.  I was also considering the higher end Shures or Ultimate Ears etc.  I think these will be good to go.

I will post up a review in a few days after I give it a test.  Very excited!

Fake shoes suck...

NY Times Fake Shoe Story!


A shopkeeper in Italy placed an order with a Chinese sneaker factory in Putian for 3,000 pairs of white Nike Tiempo indoor soccer shoes. It was early February, and the shopkeeper wanted the Tiempos pronto. Neither he nor Lin, the factory manager, were authorized to make Nikes. They would have no blueprints or instructions to follow. But Lin didn’t mind. He was used to working from scratch. A week later, Lin, who asked that I only use his first name, received a pair of authentic Tiempos, took them apart, studied their stitching and molding, drew up his own design and oversaw the production of 3,000 Nike clones. A month later, he shipped the shoes to Italy. “He’ll order more when there’s none left,” Lin told me recently, with confidence.

bB Squad - Down Wit Da Sickness!


Met with my boy "Dekthai" at the Scion event and he was with his crew... bBSquad.  Check out what was in the parking lot.  Forget the so called "show cars" in the event..this display of custom Scions were 100xs better than what was shown inside.  Stance and fitment is what counts in this game...check the pics.  Damn...is all I can say. 

Unlock The TC - Santa Monica


Attended the Unlock the TC event this weekend in Santa Monica's Barker Hanger.  The PR agency I am freelancing at was part of the agencies that helped put it together so a few co workers and I popped over to check it out.


best part of the day to me was getting to try a grilled cheese from this place....


I ordered the Grilled Cheese with mac & cheese and bbq pork.  I have to admit it was pretty damn good.  Plus best part...FREE.  Yeah the whole event was free so...all food and drinks were free! 


I would definitely pay for one of these.
