Trailer For New KIDULT Shit Is Crazy

The aesthetic kills. What you want me to do.

Some Words On Chris Lighty, R.I.P.

I've been up and down these last 2 days thinking about this guy I never met. Something about the whole thing just really bothers me. Hearing his brother's confusion earlier today even brought tears to my eyes. I don't know. I've been hearing the name Lighty for 10+ years now. About all the deals, and the work ethic and the ethos of the man. Then you hear he put a gun to his head after a fight with his ex-wife and his kids down the street playing at the park. I'm just sad.

Jeff Staple Builds A Museum Of Street Culture In Las Vegas w/ "PROJECT/reed"

Every single one of these coveted things passed through my hands as I helped Jeff pick, package, and ship these puppies to the dessert. The items chosen are street relics if you will, some worth as much as $25,000 each. Some of them are beautiful, and some of them are ugly as fuck. This could be one of the coolest things the guy has ever done.

This guy is one of the best that ever did it and you know it.


I pressed play on a few of these already and I'm about to press play on the others in a second. Shit sounding eclectic and beautiful if you ask me. One of my favorite producers in the world, no lie.

Steel"It's hard for me to exactly call them remixes cause I don't always have original stems from songs etc. etc. but essentially I have made some dope beats out of some songs, but kept a TON of the original elements of the songs in the mix. I'm calling them "re-do's".

Complex + Rolling Stone Interview Everybody's Favorite Rapper Out @2Chainz On The Eve Of His New Album

The living, breathing Tity-mothafuckin-2-necklace just drop the most anticipated album of his storied career. I personally think his colorful brand of rap is strong and needed in this day and age of the carbon copy nonsense you hear on every blog. Think what you want.

COMPLEX talks to him here, ROLLING STONE here. (If you're only gonna click one link, click the Complex one. They give him an online cover and 4 pages of interesting questions.)

"Futura Is Now" Online Cover Story, Shout @FUTURADOSMIL

Maybe one of the coolest things Complex has ever done in my opinion, and they've done a lot of great stuff.

Futura has an uncanny knack for staying on the cusp. He's spent his forty-year career constantly progressing, from being represented on NYC's Broadway subway line to seeing his work fetch five-figure sums at major contemporary art auctions. Along the way he's played a pivotal role in the Downtown cool of the 1980s, the streetwear boom of the 1990s, and sowed the seeds of the street art explosion of the 2000s. Now, the 57-year-old artist is releasing his biggest project to date—a 360,000 bottle affair with the house of Hennessy.

[Making of] @Nikesnowboardng x Complete Technique Zoom Force 1 'AMERICAN EAGLE'

AMERICAN EAGLE from Hot Mop Films on Vimeo.
Artistry runs rampant round these parts. Osa of Complete Technique is a fucking genius and this video, beautiful shot by my guy Ro is proof.

Ronin spends over 9 days filming Osamu Koyama, the artist behind jewelry brand Complete Technique, as he sketches, molds, and builds his masterful gold-plated design upon a blank Nike Zoom Force 1. Osa's take on the snowboarding boot was commissioned by the brand for their Shoeshine Project 2012.
