Oh Yeah, Come Celebrate Me Tonight!!

For Whatever it's Worth

The next time you can't find a cab to take you up town in NY just tell em you're going to Run DMC JMJ way. Should at least give you a better chance than 205th

"You're Now Tuned to the MuF#*kin GREATEST"

This is one of the most bad-ass commercials ever. Seamless progression through all of Hov's album covers. Very well done and gets me amped up for BP3 to drop.

It's Like Official Or Sumtin'

Rosie Perez is announced as the new inspiration for the highly anticipated Felt 3 album from Slug and Murs. The guest producer, was Already announced as Aesop Rock, but the other shoe has finally dropped on all the rumors. No it's not Paris Hilton, Sasha Grey, or your mom. This album will in fact be dedicated to the girl that made me watch Do The Right Thing and White Men Can't Jump at night after my parents had gone to bed. Here's lookin at you Rosie.

To All The Fans Do You Miss Them?

The truth will be plain to see in this new online documetary callled Sonicsgate. Peep the trailer. Fairly compelling, and tracks by Seattle's own Jake One and Neema don't hurt the appeal either.

Good To Know...

When all my PLC's finally catch up to me, these guys got my back.


Confirmation was just announced on the death of the McFly NFW Hypermax. Universal unhappy that they were not official licensees, and were simply an unofficial inspiration for the shoe, has pulled the plug on the whole model. I assume this is just about some money, and will get solved soon, but if not it will be a shame to see such a cool looking shoe never see the light of day.

Congrats to the Homie Dez!!

So a good friend of mine Desmond Marzette is one of the heads of the Lebron account and many others for the advertising firm Wieden & Kennedy down in PDX. W&K have handled all of Nike's advertising since the mid 80's and helped establish them as the sneak giant they are today. Needless to say, they make quality ads that range from inspirational to hilarious and they all make you want to purchase sneakers whether you need them or not.

Well, Dez was the mind behind many of Nike's latest and greatest Lebron TV spots and he also wrote the Kobe vs. Lebron 'Little Dez' commercial. (See Below)

The charecter Lil Dez is of course inspired by and named after him and I thought that was such a great look, since he has done some great work for (in turn lining the pockets of) the company and King James. Well it turns out, my dude just got a shoe and t-shirt package put out honoring him.

This might be the coolest thing ever.

Also, check out some of the commercials that Dez and the team down at W&K have put together over the last few seasons. Don't dude earned this recognition. He's put in serious work.

Not Quite Sure

What exactly I think of this video yet, but it's almost impossible not to think something. I love that synth sample, and your legs must be broken if you cant dance to this, but the video?.. Is this the dopest concept ever or just over the top? Let me know what you think.

The JET SET in the Seattle Weekly!

Peep it HERE.

The resident freshness expert at the Seattle Weekly, Jonathan Cunningham, gave us and the Capitol Club a nice little review a couple day back. He came to the latest edition featuring one of favorite selectahs dj blesOne alongside his alter ego Bruce Illest and Gatsby, aka They Live!

Was another great night you should come out and join up some time. Every Monday. 414 East Pine Street.



AND... Check out this guy poppin' and lockin' to 'Big or Small'

We Don't Need No Stinking Festival


This lineup is just a tad bit incredible. And by the grace of all that is musical, I get to open this show with my main man Caleb Cunningham of Project Lionheart. Seeing all of these legends up close and on stage is a dream in itself, but being able to meet them and kick it backstage? Pinch me.

Here is a Hybrid I Can Get Down With

Continuing my spotlight on 'swoosh-less' sneaks, I give you the Greedy Genius 'Ocean Runner.' Part boat shoe and part sneaker, this hi-top has a classy, yet functional look that not many sneakers possess. I'm really feeling the boat shoe touch with the crossed up laces on the ankle and single lace near the sole. Plus, the navy blue and black colorway is a perfect example of stylish simplicity. This colorway should hopefully be dropping sometime in the fall or holiday season.

MEMBERS ONLY @ the Black Lodge

On a hot and sweaty Saturday night (Sunday early morning) a secretive gathering took place involving an elite group of individuals from all creative corners of Seattle's chapter of the society of hip hopping. The gathering place was the Black Lodge, an ode to one of the greatest television series of all time...and what went down might be one of the best off the radar hip hop shows this town has ever seen.

The initiation began with a set from Kung Fu Grip, an up and coming group of members in training, that showed great potential for such young understudies. The next stage brought out State of the Artist, a great local addition that came out strong with some serious heat (literally, it was very hot in there). Then came the fresh2def stateswomen of the Seattle chapter, Thee Satisfaction. They took the initiates on a ride to the moon and back, bouncing along synthy space jams like they were born on planet dope. When they were joined by Pearl Dragon of Champagne Champagne for their rendition of the already classic 'Magnetic Blackness' the booster engines hit full throttle and and the place exploded. Finally, the initiates were ready for their ultimate test.

When Rik Rude and P Smoov, with synth in tow, took the stage everyone could tell local music history was about to be made. Fresh Espresso came out with Diamond Pistols in hand and blasted the crowd with hit after hit from their newly released gem of an album, Glamour. The sweaty, drunken, hyped and highly caffeinated crowd drank every drop of the freshly brewed local superior blend these two were cooking up. Members in the front row could be seen casually passing around a bottle of bottom shelf tequila and yelling every word in between swigs and the stink faces that followed. "You want some, come get some. I'm right here! I'M RIGHT HERE!" By the end of the set, when P Smoov took the helm of his synth and provided a solo introduction into their magnus opus 'Lazerbeams' the place was boiling over. The sweat drenched duo had done it again, and knew the moment they left the stage...that was something special.

The night wasn't over yet... as Terry Radjaw, Swervewon and myself kept people drinking and dancing until 4am. People were rocking out to nonstop hip hop classics and I believe a prominent member of the local media (ahem...Larry) even busted out the running man when Motown Philly dropped over the PA.

Backstage in the vip members lounge, cyphers broke out over makeshift drums, beer bottle percussion, hand claps and foot stomps. Bottles, blunts and fist bumps were passed around...smiles were seen everywhere you looked. Members Only brought the elite members of the Seattle chapter together in a way that hadn't been done in years, and the initiates were blessed with one hell of a show.
