Adidas Forum (Dalek Edition)

Adidas' Five-Two 3 project comes out with the Artists Pack featuring New York's own graffiti writer and designer James Marshall AKA Dalek, who gives these concrete gray Forums his well-known "Space Monkey" design and space art style.

The Banyan Treehouse

Located on a high eastern-facing ridge with views downtown Los Angles in the distance, the Banyan Treehouse serves both as an art studio and as guest accommodations. The Treehouse is completely self-sufficient with a water closet, fireplace, daybed and television. Outside, a quick walk down the stair leads to a protected and private outdoor shower. This Treehouse is perfect for my good friend Ferola.

T.Shirt & Darvin Silva Present The "Tan-Face Children EP"

There's nothing better than making something with your friends. Sometimes, I just gotta forget about the outside world listening in and remember who I really made this for first and foremost. When I've worked on music for myself in the past I never got the kind of response I wanted.. it's only when I worked for us.. when I take how I feel, what T.Shirt goes through, Dred, Will, how Ronin's felt, .... I'm just trying to tell our story.. and I'm just trying to get it right.. inspire us. I think J Cole said it best, "My story ain't the only one I'm trying to tell" - that shit just rang so true to me. We are the tan-face children. We are the pioneers. Maybe you have to know all of us to understand.. maybe it gives you a familiar feeling.

Download The Tan-Face Children EP (it will immediately start downloading to your computer)

Here's the tracklisting:

01. Pioneers! O Pioneers!
02. (Written Somewhere In Miami)
05. Recommendation
06. Starry-Eyed
07. Allure (Must Have Been Love)
08. Outro Music

The Tan-Face Children EP is being presented in a first time ever collaboration with The Connoisseurs Of Culture, a progressive media collective comprised of, Different Kitchen ( and - shout Stone, Ian and Benhameen for all the dedicated promo on this. Much respect guys.

A huge thanks to Dred (of Hot Mop Films) who took all the photos, and my man Fern, one of the illest designers and color specialists in the game (not the rap game, ha!). Fern actually has a couple of crazy before and after shots worth seeing here.

*Music Mastered by Julian Silva for On Air Mastering in Brooklyn, New York.

****Last but not least, I want to thank my homie T.Shirt. The man is a beast in the rap game and I only see nothing but the best coming his way. I've worked with him on many levels in music and I can say he knows what he's doing. I'm very happy have to have gone down this path with him and create this amazing EP. We're in this for life!

R.I.P. Biggie Smalls

With Hip Hop already deep into mainstream, it's suffering from a lack of things that emcees like Biggie brought to the table. B.I.G. was charismatic, one of our better lyricists, made great songs no matter the subject, and had the ability to create amazing stories. He will always be missed and remembered as a living legend. R.I.P. Christopher Wallace.

Hip Hop Fridays

This Friday I dedicate it to my homie Guru. After suffering a heart attack over the weekend, the Gang Starr frontman is currently recovering after undergoing surgery this week, which kept him in a medically reduced coma. Even though he is feeling a little better, I still want to send my prayers out to him and wish him a full recovery.
