This tee was designed to support the Dilla Family and in tribute to J.Dilla's Mom whom he affectionately refered to as 'Ma Dukes' or Maureen Yancey. Ms. Yancey is currently battling the Lupus disease which claimed her sons life tragically. If you don't know the story... Maureen Yancey lost her home to foreclosure while caring for J. Dilla when he was sick and it was at that time that she discovered that she was also suffering from the disease. Since Dilla's passing 'Ma Dukes' has worked to start a foundation for children suffering from the deadly disease and has also sought proper compensation for Dilla's kids, but has been ordered by the executors of his estate not to use his name or likeness and that she has no rights to the proceeds from his beats to support his family that she was left to take care of... F---__ up huh?
You can read the Vibe article on the whole mind numbing saga.
Well to honor her struggles Parra made this great tee...all proceeds go to Maureen Yancey... So support and pick it up... I know I will!

Casio gives us the Japan only Kiddi au release from their Spring 2009 collection... A phone with a 3.1 inch touch screen with killer music apps include a touchscreen Yamaha piano keyboard(why has no one else made something like this?)! And a 5mp Camera. The phone also includes other instrument on the go apps. Can you imagine what this is the harbor of? Almost as cool as this. Now if we can get Ableton Live or a mixer on one of these damn things I'll be buying.
I had the same look on my face when I read it. But no for real they're about to release music they've created.

Throwing everything else away and copping the Blackberry 8900. The phone is available on Feb 11th(which is the same day I'll be picking mine up) for all the T-mobile people(I included ...) Gizmodo has a nice write up.. Check it out.

Preview got pulled Sorry!.... Got one of these yesterday...
"Unfortunately we have received a complaint that you may have infringed someone else's copyright, and we have removed the allegedly infringing material
The files removed were from the album, "Spirit of Apollo" from N.A.S.A.
I'll throw this freeload out cause its one of the few tracks that hasn't already been posted on the blogs and I really like it..
freeload: N.A.S.A - Strange Enough ft. Ol Dirty Bastard, Fatlip, and karen O
Adam Tensta and the RMH met with Jimmy Iovine yesterday and chopped it up with several artists out here @ the Interscope studios and office... Can you smell a new Interscope signing??... And it seems Adam Tensta performed last night at the N.A.S.A release party @ Cinespace, which I missed(couldn't get time off :[ ) and Adam Tensta shot some video of Him, Wale, and Glitch Mob as Wale was working on new tracks for the new album.
New Tensta music.. Ill... A remix of Anthony Mill's 'Silent Communication' by Phunk 2... Sign the kid Jimmy!!
Adam Tensta - Silent Communication ft. Anthony Mills (Phunk2 remix)
These new button ups from Steven Alan just made my buy now list.. Nice and overpriced of course.. These come from Steven Alan's Spring 09 line.
pics via Selectism ...these joints are going to be mad expensive..
So much ish to post so little time... I've been out all day, but I saw this and Cudi performs his classic joints at the 'Famous Stars and Stripes' party @ Agenda in San Diego..
I love this track... I know some people are saying its not that great, but I gotta differ on that one...
Jay-Z - When the Money Goes
As Yeezy would say... "Bow in the Presence of Greatness"..
These SB's are inspired by the movie 'Teen Wolf' and are limited to 72 pairs @ Onsneaker for $200.... Buy Now because those joints are flying out of stock!!
Just enjoy it... True hip-hop!!! Serius Jones Killed Charles in a technical fight, but Charles gets points for even trying to battle Serius Jones with his pink shirt, choker and just for giving Serius so much ish to talk about.. Sonic did get some funny ish in (This ni__a isnt 30 hes 30,000...lol)

Mick Boogie & U-N-I - Before There Was Love Mixtape
Monday, January 26, 2009
The album has already leaked to the net.... So the usual post one song at a time thing is going on... And this was the track I was going bonkers over... Man.. Everybody and their mom that saw the tracklist on this thing when it was released immediately understood that N.A.S.A's new record would be one of the best albums of the year. Having heard the album now... Its good conceptually, but not as mindblowing as I was expecting.. Very cool though.
N.A.S.A - 'The Mayor' ft. The Cool Kids, DJ AM, Ghostface, and Scarface ...broken link fixed
I like this track... Sweden is makin moves right now. I'm not mad..
I don't know about the Teriyaki Boyz as rappers.. I'm always giving them credit cause their Japanese... They at least come proper on the beats for the most part.
Teriyaki Boyz - Teriyaki King ft. Kanye
People who haven't been listening to 'The Cool Kids' seem to want to place them into the hipster category, but I keep telling people to look past Mikey's tight ass jean and actually listen to the ish they've put out. There is actually a lot more to them artisticly than people want to give them credit for..

the biggest celebrity endorser..
The Los Angeles based design company Mosley Tribes introduced these joints to the world when it launched it's collaboration with Crooks & Castles.. And my black and gold trimmed Crooks X Mosley glasses have been my favorite sunglasses since... and thats saying a lot.. With the recent release of several new colorways Bronze, Marble Brown, and Gold these are destined for classic status. Most brands have items that tend to define their brand to the public and I gotta say that for most of us gearheads the 'Castellano' is Mosley Tribes defining pair of sunglasses.
Revolve has these Black joints for $180
price: $180 - $250
Off the Shitxfaced Mixtape.. Eboi, out of the RMH camp, and Diz Gibran hookup on this nice International collab.... One thing.. Why does this guy sound like hes from Houston but hes from Sweden?? Just have to ask.
Eboi - I Look Good ft. Diz Gibran
Any opportunity I have to post a picture of Cassie like that ^^... I'll be taking advantage.. Don't mind me I'm male I'm easy to please. Not really sure why Cassie is doing all these tracks with Tricky and The Dream. Ryan Leslie was, I would argue, the reason for about 60 - 70% of her success.
Cassie - I'm a Lover prod. Tricky Stewart
A nice unreleased throwback on the other side...
Well... This is the Kanye we all miss. Not the pussy willow crying about being heart broken and being 'pinocchio' and sh__. I think we are witnessing the rebirth of the Louis Vuitton Don... This message was delivered directly from Kanye's Vimeo
This is a remix of Santogold's 'Unstoppable... I love how rappers these days are in such a hurry to show how indie and unique they are by rapping over electro, indie and alternative music.... Now if we can get some progressive lyrical content I'll be sold. With that being said jumping on this track was a good choice
Santogold - Unstoppable (Remix) ft. Drake and Lil Wayne
