Well shit.

Yes, we all need to heed our callings, follow our north stars, and not settle for jobs, but pursue careers. Thing is, during anyone's career, sometimes it gets weird--and getting weird can pay off.

"Rap Quotes", A Street Art Project In And Around New York (Shout @TheRapQuotes)

Love this. Smart rap marketing for the love of the culture. Huge shout to Shells.

For this ongoing project, Shells created official-looking street signs quoting famous rap lyrics that shout out specific street corners and locations. He then installed them at those specific street corners and locations. Shells went all city and posted over 30 signs quoting the likes of Jeru tha Damaja, Mos Def, Nas, Kanye West, CL Smooth, GZA, and RA the Rugged Man. ANIMAL followed.

This happened in the middle of January but I missed it somehow. They have a great conversation about everything.

Original ROYGBIV CREAM Hoodie By @GODreamerNation

One of the things I take a lot of pride in is not being swayed by what's hot at the moment. I don't give a fuck what thing is popular, who makes it, how much it cost etc. If it's a smash, I'll do my best to put everyone on to it. If it's garbage, I might even do the same.

Coming across my desk recently was the multi-colored CREAM hoodie by up and coming brand Generation Of Dreamers. The piece is a classic. CREAM is forever in the hip-hop lexicon and when you stitch leather letters into a thick black pullover hood with leather drawstrings to match, you end up knocking the shit out the park. Respect where it's due.

It should not have been published anywhere else in print or online.

Louis C.K. HBO Promo Thing "Oh My God"

Best ever.

Pharrell Presents Michael Kagan for Billionaire Boys Club (Photos)

I like this. Whatever price it is might sway me but it's dope.

*What drew you to Michael Kagan’s artwork?

One of my colleagues showed me his art after finding it on a design blog. His paintings work well with the heritage of the brand but are abstract enough to make them feel different from anything else we’ve done with space exploration. Since we’re always looking for new ideas for our BBC flagship exclusives releases it was a perfect fit.

Artist Collective @URNEWYORK Corporate Thug New Work Onto The CitiCorp Building (Photos)

We don't talk about it often but while a few of my closest friends and I race eachother up the ladder of success, the friendly competition to see who "makes it" first gets grittier and grittier haha. Most of us know we can't fuck with them UR boys though. As of yesterday 5+ new works and 2 billboards grace both inside and outside the CitiCorp Building on 53rd Street and Lexington Ave. If this isn't an incredible feat for a couple street graffiti kids I don't know what is. So proud.

Shout to Pop Gallery, URNEWYORK and everybody involved.

Mothafuckin' Money In America And How Far The Poor Is From The Rich (Video)

This is pretty wild. Shout to Nation for the heads up.

My thoughts on the matter are both non-informed and I guess skewed as all hell. I never knew money. All I've ever known is people that work extremely smart get the big bucks. I think a problem with that could be a lot of people confuse working smart with working hard. Even this video blurs the line. Now to say that is fair and just and the way things should be, I don't know. But it is what it is. There's been a whole lot of years for Americans to figure that fact out. At the end of the day it's difficult for me to feel a real sympathy for people born in America with their arms and legs and eyes working properly and still unable to make money and live at least a decent life. There's just way too much opportunity in my opinion.
