As seen in our previous posts, A$AP Rocky has been obliterating the music world with his off the wall unique ‘druggy’ visuals. Yesterday Rocky released the visual for his single “Everyday” featuring Rod Stewart, Miguel and Mark Ronson, Unlike his other recent videos Jukebox Joints and L$D Rocky took a different approach in not going with the ‘druggy’ super colorful feel. In this visual there was more of a concrete storyline explaining the downside of fame and where it can take you eventually if you are not careful. This Emmanuel Cossu directed video also contains cameos from Rod Stewart, Miguel, OG Maco and the one and only “King Of The Youth” Ian Connor. Check this eerie visual from Rocky below.
MediCom Toys and EDM super group Daft Punk have teamed up to make another Be@rbrick. If you are not familiar with it, the Be@rbrick is a collectable cartoon styled figure made to look like a bear; hence the name Be@rbrick. This particular rendition was made to mimic duo Daft Punk’s 2014 Grammy look. Predominately white with gold accents on each of the mask, mark my words these renditions will be as sought after as its 1000% predecessor. The two must cop figures are slated to release February 2016.
“Abels back with one of the most compelling video I’ve seen in my life”. This morning, Abel Tesfaye better known as The Weeeknd dropped the visual for “Go Tell Your Friends” produced by Kanye West. Yes its still Yeezy Season. Juxtaposed to Tesfaye’s usual club scene offering this visual instead follow him as he buries his demons and kill zombies. This visual is also presented in 1:1 aspect ratio which is why there’s a decent amount of black area. The benefit of this ratio in comparison to others is the focus on the subject is more intense making the picture a lot crisper. This visual is more then good. Take a look at the Weeknd latest music video below.
2 Chainz (Tity Boi) has released a new visual titled “If I Didn’t Rap”. It’s a track off his latest mixtape “Trap-A-Velli 3” and was filmed in Miami, Florida by director Sharod Marcus Simpson.

This past weekend Dime a rising skateboarding brand out of Montreal Canada and legendary skate brand Vans collaborated for a release and very unique skating event. Dime released a new product collection of gear along with a collaborative shoe with vans. The shoe was a classic vans slip-on pro however contained some unique upgrades to the shoe such as Ultra Cush HD cushioning, DURACAP reinforcements, Pro Vulc Lite construction and of course the historic waffle outsole that Vans always provides. The shoe was released in-store on August 8th and will be released online August 15th. The ‘Dime Glory Challenge’ skating event however was very unique and far from your typical skating event. There were 10 very unique challenges just to name a few there was the “Gangster Challenge” where the skater was required to use their best looking stance upon rolling away from a flat edge, “Guillotine Challenge” where the skater rides up a kicker and reaches their highest jumping potential and my favorite the “Race Challenge” skaters race around the park down stairs stop to chug a beer and then put speed shades on and sprint to the finish line. Check out this unique event in the video below.
Keeping with the LSD influenced theme Asap Rocky’s latest installment “Jukebox Joints” incorporates a medley of colors seamlessly melting in with each other and elements that help exemplify what its like when one is submersed in a LSD induced trance. Rocky has completely mastered the style. The visual also showcases the ASAP Mob something I personally haven’t seen sense the “Lord Pretty Flacko Joyde” visual which released a few months back. Click the link below and take a look at Rocky’s latests installment Jukebox Joints.
By the way Kanye’s verse was not featured in the video. I wonder why?
Danny Seth is a jewish caucasian male with one of the coolest haircuts your going to ever see from London, England who resides on the West Coast. Danny has definitely been heating up here in the United States being featured on numerous blogs, modeling clothing for brands such as “places + faces” and being seen hanging out with fashion designer and close friend of Kanye West ‘Virgil Abloh’. As “Grime” music which is a British form of trap music has been heating up in America with artist such as Skepta, Stormzy and JME gaining more recognition, Danny however is not a “Grime” artist even though he does enjoy the music as he stated in his complex magazine interview “I never grew up in a Grime environment so I can’t do Grime because I can’t relate to it. I love to listen to it, But I can’t talk about guns and selling drugs because that’s not me”. Danny seems to be more inspired by American hip hop as he also stated in that interview that Virginia’s own Clipse ‘Lord Willin’ was the first album he ever purchased. One thing that is undeniable is the buzz that Danny has received this from his songs “I arise because,” “Safe” and “Never Forget.” In preparation for his new album coming September 18th Danny released a video titled “Perception Prelude” today. The album is very highly anticipated by the American underground rap scene and also the rap scene over in the UK however I feel Danny may have what it takes to become a house hold name one day in the rap game based off of his sheer ability to capture you with his style and diverse sound. check out some of his work below.
