Katie Couric interviews Lil Wayne before the Grammy’s air. Here’s a preview of the interview. Say what you must about Wayne but he always speak his mind.

Classic Material: Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth - The Main Ingredient

The dynamic duo hailing from Mount Vernon, New York were in top form when The Main ingredient dropped in 1994. Providing such classics as "take you there","I got a love" and my personal favorite "the main ingredient" The Mecca and the soul brother dropped jewels over crisp snares and soulful samples. Definitely an album to add to the collection. Shout to Mr. Ceaser for hooking it up.

Fitted Hawaii “The Art Of Lua Fighting” Pack

This Fitted takes the conventional straw hat to the next level:

Kicking it off is a new kelly green tee dubbed “The Infamous” which features double F’s in an tonal all over print on the front, with the crown hit on the back. Clean & crisp. Next up is a no-nonsense, paper woven Kamehemeha. Yep, the whole hat is fabricated of a straw / paper, similar to the tan version we put out last year featuring black on the upper, a gold Kamehameha, white eyelets, green brim and red underside. A gold satin lining with a collage of Hawaiian weapons rests on the inside. We’ve been trying to think outside of the box with these different types of materials and fabrics, and so far we’ve been pretty pleased with the aftermath. Finally, closing it off is another new hoodie in all black which sees the “Home Grown” print on the back, two front pockets and the crest in white on the front left.”

Kanye West for Louis Vuitton Sneaker


PARIS — Marc Jacobs and the Louis Vuitton men’s studio director Paul Helbers have some design competition this season. Kanye West, who was sitting front row at the Vuitton show, has designed a line of five LV sneakers. Only one design, above, was featured in the show — a monochromatic midtop with no frills, save for a quilted flap in the back, all the easier to tuck pants into. “The inspiration came from a jacket with a huge collar in the movie ‘Dune,’ ” West says. “Most sneakers focus on the tongue, so I wanted to do something different.” West knows whereof he speaks: he says he has no idea how many shoes he owns, but he does know that he routinely needs to send shipments off to storage. The LV-meets-Kanye kicks will be available at Louis Vuitton stores in June.

B.I.G Tribute Day 8: Who Shot Ya!


Seperate the weak from the ob-solete
Hard to creep them brooklyn streets
Its on nigga, fuck all that bickering beef
I can hear sweat trickling down your cheek
Your heartbeat sound like sasquatch feet
Thundering, shaking the concrete
Finish it, stop, when I foil the plot
Neighbors call the cops said they heard mad shots
Saw me in the drop, three in the corner
Slaughter, electrical tape around your daughter
Old school new school need to learn though
I burn baby burn like disco inferno
Burn slow like blunts with ya-yo
Peel more skins than idaho potato
Niggaz know, the lyrics molestin is takin place
Fuckin with b.i.g. it aint safe
I make your skin chafe, rashes on the masses
Bumps and bruises, blunts and landcruisers
Big poppa smash fools, bash fools
Niggaz mad because I know that cash rules
Everything around me, two glock nines
Any motherfucker whispering about mines
And im, crooklyns finest
You rewind this, bad boys behind this

- Who Shot Ya!

Notorious B.I.G - Who Shot Ya!

It's Day 8 and I've got my tickets for Notorious. I'm hoping that Gravy doesn't tarnish the mans legacy too bad and looking forward to copping the DVD from my local bootlegger(Just kidding) Being that this is the last day of the tribute I had to post the best for last. Who Shot Ya is regarded as the track that ignited the East-West Coast beef between The Notorious B.I.G and Tupac Shakur. To many it's the proverbial "nail in the coffin" in which the lives of two young men with unlimited potential were taken. The loss of these two men not only affected the lives of those close to them but the world on a whole. To this day when the topic of G.O.A.T's(Greatest Of All Time) is brought up these names will always be mentioned. Endless debates upon who is better is something that still goes on to this day. One thing evident in both B.I.G and Tupac's music was the voice of the struggle. Here are two individuals who werent given the best opportunities but made the best of their own God given abilities. And Though they are no longer with us in the physical their spirits shall remain in the hearts of all.

Mishka Bootleg Black Bart Tee


New York based streetwear label Mishka joins the slew of other brands in releasing Obama inauguration day products.

January 20th is an important day because it marks a pretty epic change in the course of American politics. Not to get all politically-heavy with you guys, but “change” is a comin’. This very change - which is rolling in waves - has affected us here at Mishka too. To the point where we’ve succumbed to peer pressure and finally caved into the Obama train. But being the jaded, peanut gallery we are, regardless of change, politics is politics. A famous presidential candidate once said “You can put lipstick on a pig, but its still a pig.”
So to celebrate this monumental/business-as-usual day, Mishka has decided to release an Obama tee in the only way it makes sense to us – Bootleg Black Bart style. Influenced by Young Jeezy’s “Black President” and fueled by our resentment for the run-of-the-mill Obama shirts sold everywhere, Mishka’s Bootleg Black Bart tee embodies exactly what Mishka fans expect of the brand and expect of a Mishka/Obama shirt.


5 days from history. Get ready.

B.I.G Tribute Day 7: Things Done Changed

If I wasnt in the rap game
Id probably have a key knee deep in the crack game
Because the streets is a short stop
Either youre slingin crack rock or you got a wicked jumpshot
Shit, its hard being young from the slums
Eatin five cent gums not knowin where your meals comin from
And now the shits gettin crazier and major
Kids younger than me, they got the sky grand pagers
Goin outta town, blowin up
Six months later all the dead bodies showin up
It make me wanna grab the nine and the shottie
But I gotta go identify the body
Damn, what happened to the summertime cookouts?
Everytime I turn around a nigga gettin took out
Shit, my momma got cancer in her breast
Dont ask me why Im motherfuckin stressed, things done changed

B.I.G Tribute Day 6 - Notorious Thugs

Armed and dangerous, ain't too many can bang with us
Straight up weed no angel dust, label us Notorious
Thug a$$ niggaz that love to bust, it's strange to us
Y'all niggaz be scramblin, gamblin
Up in restaurants with mandolins, and violins
We just sittin here tryin to win, tryin not to sin
High off weed and lots of gin
So much smoke need oxygen, steadily countin them Benjamins
Nigga you should too, if you knew
What this game'll do to you
Been in this sh*t since ninety-two
Look at all the bullsh*t I been through
So-called beef with you know who
F*ck a few female stars or two
Then I bluelight niggaz knew like Mike's sh*t
Not to be f*cked with
Motherf*cker better duck quick, cause
Me and my dogs love to buck sh*t
F*ck the luck sh*t, strictly aim
No aspirations protect the game
Spit yo' game, talk yo' sh*t
Grab yo' gat, call yo' click
Squeeze yo' clip, hit the right one
Pass that weed, I got to light one
All them niggaz I got ta fight one
All them hoes I got ta like one
Our situation is a tight one
Whatcha gonna do, fight or run?
Seems to me that you'll take thee
Bone and Big, nigga die slowly
I'ma tell you like a nigga told me
Cash Rule Everything Around Me
Sh*t, lyrically, niggaz can't see me
Fu*k it, buy the coke
Cook the coke, cut it, blow the b*tch
Before you call yourself lovin it
Nigga you with a Benz fu*kin it
Doesn't it seem odd to you
Big come through with moms and crews
Goodfellas to to the Mo Thugs dudes
Who's the killa, me or you?

- Notorious Thugs

Notorious B.I.G - Notorious Thugs


The Heavyset one held his own on the Bone Thugs assisted track. Rapid fire flows combined with ill wordplay easily made B.I.G the illest on the track. Keep in mind that he used no pen to write. Life After Death was the album that showed versatility and his uncanny ability to murder any beat. Concepts, lyrics, and flows all combined made this is a classic album and took B.I.G into iconic status.
