Head over to the Yacht Shop for some deals that you don’t want to pass up! Happy Thanksgiving!
Shout out to the homie Rey Resurreccion rocking our Squad snap in this jam session video with Gyrefunk.
Locked ourselves in the lab this weekend to wrap up Kixxie Siete’s Unwrapped project. This mini mixtape, produced entirely by Matt Shimamoto, will feature tracks with Artie McCraft and Hersh Lucci. Release date will be announced soon.
Just restocked our box logo hoodies in all sizes in both colorways. Don’t sleep because this will probably be the only restock. Here is a closer look at some improvements we’ve made on our product. Be on the lookout for more Winter season drops coming sooner than you think.
The Bar (Bambu & Prometheus Brown) drop a remix to the Angry Locals’ “Locals Only”. This is the first leak off their upcoming album Barkada.
Yesterday, the Wu Tang Clan celebrated the 20 year anniversary of the Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) album.
Every Saturday morning I start my day off by watching some Ted Talks. As I try to get more active on our blog again, I want to share some things with you that will give insight in what drives our company.
Ever since Nipsey dropped his $100 mixtape and started this Proud to Pay movement, I’ve been really trying to figure out my own thoughts on the value of “art”. At this Ted event, Rodney Mullen spoke on the idea of “getting up again.” After reading a book by Russell Simmons earlier this year, I taught myself that I don’t necessarily know more things than anyone, rather, we all actually know everything but we just need constant reminder from each other of what we already know. Rodney Mullen explains here that he’s not telling you anything you don’t know already, instead he is just putting faces from his community on this idea and hopes that it translates to everyone else’s community. He uses the example of how many times a skateboarder falls and gets back up again just to land a trick that will last 3 or 4 seconds. For that 3-4 seconds of success, there was hours to days of failure and getting back up again. That easily translated to me on what it takes to make one song, let alone a whole album. A song can take hours of writing and recording just to get it perfect so that a listener can truly understand what an artist is trying to say. Reflecting on this really brings me back to why we even do this. Our passion for improvement drives us to create more and create what our art is worth. The way you take it in is up to you, you just have to translate it to whatever your art may be.
