Yeayuh. Lupe finally dropped the visuals for his 1st single off Lasers. Ya’ll already know it’s going to be one of the best albums of 2011 if it’s anything like the Cool on a lyrical level. This song is such a feel good anthem, very sing-a-long. The video follows the rapper through his journey from the dressing room to the strage, takes some CGI space detours on the way to the stage. The song has a positive message which is quite rare these days especially in rap music, peep the video on the flipside. Hope everyone had a good Christmas! but now back to work…the show goes on.
2010 has gifted us with some really great songs. Thankfully many have come from UK artists. However, I am sure that if I was to ask all of you what you think the 3 most popular songs of the year are, I’d put my money on it that ‘Just The Way You Are‘ a ‘Fuck You’ by Cee-lo Green and ‘Nothin’ On You’ feat B.O.B would make the cut. Well, all songs have my man of the moment Bruno Mars in common—the newcomer who I think has taken 2010 by storm. More on the flipside.

Car parks are so eerie and far too quiet for my liking. However the lighting is dope, perfect for a photoshoot. Soon after we walked over the barriers to get to restricted area/top floor of the car park to take a few extremely dope photographs of Stratford. The area is changing so much! For those wondering, that’s not any stranger in the photo, it’s @Miss_Tosin of Pinboard Blog.
All the fuss we made this week looking for gifts for loved ones ends here and now its time to YAM Christmas dinner!

I’m both happy and sad at the same time over this. As you all already know I effed up my camera lens during the Jesse Boykins III interview; the mount of my 1.8 lens was damaged apparently so when I tried removing it wouldn’t budge. So I took it to the camera repair shop by Tottenham Court Road and they said they have to slice the lens in half to unscrew from my body so they did. If you want to know what a lens look on the inside, peep the photographs I snapped after the cut. I will be purchasing a new fixed lens as soon as I save enough money *ahem 10th January 2010!* #studentloan
BAWSE. The highly anticipated mixtape from your friendly neighbourhood rent-a-cop Rick Ross has finally dropped, I haven’t had a listen yet but will do so later on today. If it’s anything like Teflon Don then I’m sure to love it. Hop on after the cut for the full tracklist and download link. Right I think it’s time for some family time and as it’s Christmas, we’ll be a lil slow with the updates. Have fun ya’ll.
Lawd. It’s about time he released a video for this song! easily my favourite by the singer/songwriter Miguel Jontel. It’s the song that got him his record deal with Jive almost 4 years ago and I’m glad he’s finally released an album after a lot of legal issues with one of his earlier contracts. The album isn’t amazing but there are a few songs here and there which certainly got rinsed on my iTunes. ‘All I Want Is You‘ out in stores and iTunes now, go purchase. Peep the video on the reverse.
I’ve overlooked BBC/Ice Cream for quite some time, they haven’t really put anything out worth talking about and quite frankly their clothing is usually upsetting- i didn’t like their a/w collection. However it seems the brand have taken a turn for the better and their putting out a much more subtle and wearable look. From the preview we see some tailoring in the form of blazers and chinos however BBC have retained their edge with their quirky patterns. Maybe it’s a good thing they decided to keep that because it’s their identity but I think their prints are somewhat immature and borderline on tacky- had they produced simpler pieces, the collection could have been salvaged. Check the preview after the cut.

I ended my 1 month burrito fast yesterday when I made my return to Wahaca in Canary Wharf. As always I came armed with my 550d and spotted this dope view from our table. You can see the reflection of the restaurant in the glass but I actually quite like the effect it has, adds more of a variety of colours. The blue neon lights on trees are DOPE! they look like they’ve been injected with radioactivity #geekymind. Park Pavilion is a small part of Canada Square, a public park situated above the Canary Wharf Shopping Mall. It’s a popular place for summer concerts and open air sports screenings.
Denim accessories seem to becoming a more and more recurrent trend these days and it’s fair to say it’s grown on me. Yang posted …. iPad and iPhone accessories which were exceptionally well tailored. This new range from Eastpak is a refreshing change from their usual bright bold colours and patterns as they’ve merged the iconic Eastpak style with stonewashed denim to create a new limited edition collecton called D-lab. Ya’ll can now purchase exclusively from Selfridges and Selfridges.com. More images on the reverse.
