Next up to bat is the Kooley Is High Mixtape... These cats met up at the University of North Carolina formed a crew and started rocking the mic and put it all together.. This one has been out for a few weeks, and i aint going to front i kinda slept on it.. But after i checked in i liked what i heard they have that spring time feel.. Even though most of the production are beats you might be familiar with, it still has a nice feel to it, I'm going to keep a eye on these cats....

Ran across this one at Sneaker News... Here is a colab. done with Patta x Sneakernstuff x Limit Edition x A.R.C. Featuring the suede 3-Stripes and heeltab.. while the use of ultra-tough CORDURA® fabric down to the tongue increases durability and minimizes the scope for scuffs and brasions while remaining surprisingly lightweight. Black-on-black print logos spread cross the left and right heels, ‘REPS’ using an amalgamation of the distinctive store logo types on the footbed and a collection of five individually branded lace locks, plus a matching drawstring bag, made with the same CORDURA® brand fabric, ups the premium look and feel.
Here is a quick little documentry called "Dig For Fire" from Habib Awam.. Habib takes us on a journey to find out why, when music is so easily accessible digitally, are vinyl sales increasing and what is the allure of hunting down physical discs. The short documentary features interviews with DC area DJ’s, record store owners, collectors, enthusiasts and more.
Check out the "Lil’ G" which is short for Little Ghetto Blaster created by Jasin.. After speaking with some production companies Jasin is hoping to have the first color way in white. Lil G’ will be made of soft vinyl and is meant to be painted on, drawn on, and even possible for you to slap some stickers on. Another bonus is that this mini boom box is also MP3 compatible. With it still being in the prototype phase, he is working on a way to add a housing united for your MP3 device and is also working on a Hot Pink, Black, and possibly a GID colorway.
Here is a really nice documentary called the "Obama Deception".. This 2 hour documentary had me glued to my seat, dropping so many jewels it ain't even funny.. I'm not going to tell you what it is about, you just got to check in on this one!!

The format of the album plays like a radio show with Pete Rock as the program director. With regards to Pete's involvement, Ms. Yancey gets very excited, "Dilla wanted to pattern himself behind Pete. His dream was to become as close as possible to what Pete stood for. Pete meant everything to him. Dilla would have just been flabbergasted! " Pete's sentiments were the same toward Dilla, "Dude was amazing. He just kinda came outta nowhere and the more you heard his beats the better they got. He may not be here with us, but it's all good we're going to keep his music alive and well."
Jay Stay Paid will be released on June 2nd on Nature Sounds.

Rob Dyrdek is really making some skateboard mogul moves.. With his MTV Fun Factory show, his resturant with L.A. Lakers player Lamar Odom, his new skate hotel in Vegas, and now his newest project.. "Street Dreams", which is his full out big screen picture, Rob aint holding back.. He even got professional skateboarders/actors Ryan Sheckler, Paul Rodriguez, Ryan Dunn, and Terry Kennedy holding it down in the flick. Rob is jive for this one, but for some reason, I have a funny feeling this one is going to blow up and he is really opening some doors for the skateboarding community no question...
Now peep the trailer,

My mans Gobz sent me his newest trailer for his infamous Gobz Show.. Of course he got that footage on there featuring alittle of this and a little of that, but it never fails to make us laugh at Funkwhatyaheard.. Check out the newest antics of the Gobz Show...
Here are a few dope projects that you can flip in the office while trying to stay busy at the workplace.. With just some office supplies and around the corner coffee stuff and a creative mind you can flip some ill ass models.. For instance the Mario Cart built by Donald Kennedy.. It's made out of colored paper clips, binding clips, push pins, and loose change.. Or the original series Star Trek Enterprise model made out of a couple of binder clips, an old CD, a couple of ink pens... Better yet what about the Dan Winters Star Wars Tie Fighter model out of Starbucks cups, cup insulation jackets and coffee stirrers, super creative if you ask me... But let's say you are not that creative, then try hitting a paper craft project site...You just download a PDF with instructions and colored templates for the models, print, on paper or card stock, grab your scissors and white glue, and you've got hours of cutting, folding, and gluing fun ahead of you. ( Refering to RObo Cop / Terminator Characters) But if you got a real amount of time and skill on your hands you can grab 25 sheets of 4 x 8 single-ply cardboard, you can construct a 17' tall model of Gandhi!
