Keys vs Nicki Minaj

I know I’m a little late with this but… tell me that Keys didn’t just rip NIcki and all of her barbie friends to pieces? A Baltimore native Keys is coming for Nicki, obviously and is setting herself up as a “real” artist. She represents real people and all that jazz… as you can tell on her other tracks that have leaked from her upcoming mixtape. Whereas I really and truly don’t think that the shot should be an effective one because Nicki came into the game from the jump stating that it was all about branding, I feel like Keys has that fire that Nicki had when I first heard those first couple of mixtapes. Oh and she imitated the flow to a T, added her own spin and SLAYED my favorite barbie. If you like what you heard above get the download link along with two other tracks that leaked from her mixtape below. I also discuss the pros and cons of the artists.

DESIGNERS: Robot&Brucling

http://c.brightcove.com/services/viewer/federated_f9/4139796001?isVid=1&publisherID=4139489001

This video is Behind the Scenes of Shontelle’s new music video “Impssible”. Seventeen got us in for this exclusive peek but that’s not what we’re here to discuss… what we are here to discuss is actually one piece. I mean the video does look like it’s going to be deep, not that heavy on the fashion, but still heartfelt. What pierced my gaze though was the bow tie that Steph Jones, the male lead in the video, was wearing. The designer is none other than the duo from Robot and Brucling.

See below the clip for more

While I don’t think that Knight(the name of this particular bow tie) will make it into the video(the styling of the shoot looks very relaxed, and simplistic, neither of which describes this particular bow tie) I’m happy to see it nonetheless. Bruce Franklin and Chris Chaun have been pounding the pavement hard and were working in the industry for a while before they came out with their line and have in ways hit the ground running. From the collection now being sold my favorites are Carnegie and Chelsea(with a small alteration). I’ll go into more detail later, but I just wanted to get the name in your ear. Look out for Robot and Brucling… Oh and if you already know you love the work, order from here.

MAGAZINE: W April 2010


So I subscribe to 7 magazines as of now, 5 of which have already come in the mail(I think the other two won’t start until the May issues). I’ve decided to add a component of the blog where we’ll talk about these magazines, the drama surrounding them and of course the fashions included! Each magazine is going to have a separate post and I’ll get to those later but right now there’s some covers I want to post and a few things I want to discuss!

See more coverage below the clip
The first to discuss right now is W. If you have seen the last two covers of W you may notice a distinct difference. Gone are the models and fashionable celebrities. Megan Fox covered March and a reader wrote in to the editor saying:

I love W because it is intelligent, sassy and a fantastic art and fashion magazine. But Fox is not fashionable, has a gigantic mouth that spews nothing but word vomit and is a flash in the pan. W is one of the few magazines that still puts models and authentic movie stars on the cover.

Fox is just a sad excuse for some publicity to sell magazines. Remember who your audience is: fashion and art lovers, not teenybopppers.

And to be completely honest, I agree with the entire letter, Mean Girl references and all. I subscribed to W because the magazine is high fashion and heavy on art. But March’s issue(although I never received it… yeah I still haven’t received my March issue) was a disappointment and so is April. April’s issue is the first ever Shopping Issue for W. SHOPPING ISSUE?? I thought I subscribed to W, not InStyle.

Speaking of InStyle, as you may know, W signed on a new Editor-In-Chief Stefano Tonchi, who was the Editor-In-Chief at T(alphabet soup I know but stay with me). I had hoped that these two last issues were just a fluke, just a departing editor making a shot in the dark at what might be possible with a dying magazine(W was one of the harder hit magazines in reference to ad sales). Well Mr. Tonchi is talking of

probably to just make it more of a general-interest style magazine, and less of a fashion-obsessed publication.

I’m not sure if Mr. Tonchi understands it but the W audience IS FASHION OBSESSED! It’s the reason we subscribe! We want to get artsy fashion editorials… edgy even, and be able to actually see them thanks to the oversized printing of the magazines. If I wanted an InStyle Deluxe, as The Imagist calls it, I would have subscribed to InStyle and be yelling about increasing the size of the pages.

So as you can probably tell, I’m not the HAPPIEST with the change in things but I don’t have more time to rant. I have French right now. I wonder if instead of teaching French my professor will decide to teach a class based more on “general-interest” in stead of being French -obsessed.

Lola Maxwell’s Basik Edukation


So some of you may remember Lola Maxwell from the interview we conducted with her before. Well, Lola released a press release today stating that she would be dropping her newest mixtape entitled “Basik Edukation:The Mixtape”.

Get more coverage below the clip
The project is her sixth studio compilation and will be hosted by MATunes.net and Datpiff.com. Projects she’s done before include Studio 1206, Check the Rhyme,and From the Planet of the Greats and these are all available on Datpiff here

Lola Maxwell – “Basik Edukation” mxtp promo from Lola Maxwell on Vimeo.

Based in D.C. she says that Basik Edukation:

“It just fits my writing and production style. Back to the basis of when hip hop was all about lyricism and storytelling, no gimmicks. I completed it 2 weeks prior to the release date and I worked with the following producers: Banquo, Sinitus Tempo, BAM, Majestic Views, and Joe D. It was relatively easy producing this mixtape. The words just flowed right onto the paper as soon as I heard the beats. I could’ve had way more tracks but I didn’t do too much. My concept actually shifted”

She did provide us with a freestyle on Drake’s track “OVER” to hold us over which you can check out here. She says this about the track:

“Lol, Drake’s rapping and delivery will always be his way and mine will always be mine. Of course, I would say I like mine better, though ha-ha. It’s a version of my ideas and music thoughts to the “over” beat, nothing personal.”

Lola will be performing live at “Hard Rock Live” at The Loft DC on 411 Penn Avenue, NE Washington D.C. The show starts at 10pm and it’s 10 dollars at the door. Oh and this would be for the 21 and up crowd.
