Kid Cudi - Day N Nite (Crookers Remix) + Crookers Remix(AgentXBaseline Mix)



Video taken down @ behest of a Cudi Spaz!

more freeloads...thanks to Curb Crawlers



Kid Cudi -Day N Nite(Crookers vs AgentXBaseline Mix)

update: *Kid Cudi is pissed off* ...

IMO...don't really understand why.....The video is bananas!! I mean you make a video, the label spends money on it, I thought it was good(but all the cool people thought it sucked), and you say no I don't want others to see it? I like Kid Cudi...but thats some whiny bull sh**. Just shoot another video don't try to hide what you made, cause in the music biz thats basically impossible. Everything gets leaked eventually. You know how many 'unreleased' videos I have that are doper than the released version???

Dom Kennedy Featured in Vibe's 'New West'

I've been saying this for who knows how long, but this time its for real.....The West is on the come up and this guy is a part of the new talent. I've met Dom before and the thing I like from all the New West artists I've met before is that they're all good people too. Not a bunch of phony egos and studio gangstas...Cats with real skill and good heads on their shoulders. I've posted some of his stuff on IMEEM and needless to say its gotten thousands of hits.



check out the article

article prview:


Government Name: Dominic Kennedy
My L.A.: Leimert Park
Album/ Mixtape: The 25th Hour mixtape (March 2008)
Signed/ Unsigned: Unsigned
My Jam: “Still Lookin”



Dom Kennedy talks as if he has everything planned out. His life. His music career. And possibly even his death. His tattoo even reads, “In loving memory of hip hop”—a metaphor for how he wants to leave his mark on the game. “That’s how I live kind of, in memory,” he says eerily, eyes hidden under his gray Los Angeles Kings fitted. He looks up and continues, “When I die, all my music will go with me.” His talk of death is symbolic of greater ambitions, though: Dom Kennedy, 24, wants his music to stand the test of time. “My stories are stories that we’ve all lived,” he says. “Ten years from now a kid should be able to play my song and know exactly what I’m talking about.”

5 minutes w/ Pacific Division...L.A.'s own..

You know I had to post this.....Pac Div are definitely a favorite of this blog...





Fellas you gotta read the blogs...(like this one)...I promise you they're largely positive.

Nokia N97...So I still love the Prada II...But Damn!!!

This phone just shuts sh-- down.....think mini computer that might kick your computers ass!




I'm not going to techie talk with you so I'll let Engadget do the talking...

"Details are in, Nokia has a new flagship phone. The N97 packs a 3.5-inch, 640 x 360 pixel (that's a 16:9 aspect ratio) resistive touchscreen display with tactile feedback and QWERTY keyboard into this sliding communicator with an "always open" window to favorite internet or social networking sites. Nokia calls it the "world's most advanced mobile computer." To back up the claim they've dropped in HSDPA, WiFi, and Bluetooth radios, A-GPS, a 3.5-mm headjack, 32GB of onboard memory with microSD expansion (for up to 48GB total capacity), and a battery capable of up to 1.5 days of continuous audio playback or 4.5-hours video. 5 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss glass and "DVD quality" video capture at 30fps, too. The specs are certainly impressive, let's see if the S60 5th Edition OS can support it. The N97 will launch with a retail price set at around €550 ($693) excluding subsidies and taxes, phone to ship in H1 2009."

Vans x Supreme...+ *10Deep* Holiday Lookbook



Vans x Supreme...Definitely a fan of both...Supreme seems to be ahead of the game most of the time. If you've noticed a lot of these 'streetwear'(meaning not European and worn by mostly people 18-29) brands have gone all flannel and Outdoorsy(is that a word?) well it was Supreme that started that a while back and than 'Hundreds' and '10Deep' and everybody and their mama did multicolor flannel joints.


Release date is Tomorrow. These are stunners no doubt. Nubuck suede and leather gets me everytime.....Hypebeast

I got love for you D.C.!!

Parra Headphones and Nixon's new premium Headphones

The DJ in me means I'm a sucker for unique and well designed, studio quality, headphones...and these are just dooope!



Netherlands 'creative', as they're called, Parra and music label Perfect Unison have teamed up to make these very fresh headphones. These are available @ select retailers and per The Guillotine they are now available at the French Art store The Lazy Dog. Not sure if these are studio quality and I don't have the price but I'm going to try and get it.

this is the world renowned Parra...


And more on the Nixon Headphones after the jump...




Nixon, known mostly for their premium casual watches, has decided to launch a premium brand of headphones. With an endorsement from Mos Def, these headphones are sure to sell well. Ranging from $40 for the 'in ear' - $200 for the studio quality 'Master Blaster', Nixon was likely inspired by the success of entrances to the audio market of brands like Wesc and Apple(with the Dr. Dre headphones). Here are a few more pics of the Studio quality headphones....

Sneaker Head News: Air Jordan 2009!! And they said the XX3 was it...




If you know me you know I love Jordans....and I was utterly disappointed in the XX3 being the last and final. This one is set to release in Feburary of 2009. Tinker Hatfield and the guys at Jordan have been consistently the most advanced designers in the kick game and I think they sensed peoples dissapointment in the XX3. This one definitely looks more promising. With Jordan being a pivotal company in the global economy, and with spending projected to be $8.7 Billion in 2009, they sure as hell weren't going to go without any new releases.
