Tupac is one of the reasons I feel in love with Hip Hop/RAP in the early ’90. I grew up in the struggle he spoke about, shit I identified with directly. 3 mins in on this video, on the real, aside from details of color obviously. “a hell of a job, to have to build and empire for your family” RIP Tupac Self Made Dues Paying
I was just checking out my friend Tim Hendricks blog and found this gem of a video on our dear friend Dan Dringenberg and his company. He is a living legend, a great friend, and a great man. I have the utmost respect for this man. Take a minute and check out this short video. He is all heart and one of a kind.
I have the pleasure of calling this man a friend. Tito Deler aka “The Original Harlem Slim” enjoy these great shorts done by PF Flyers Authentic American Style
One of my favorite short films. The “Dark Side Of The Lens” My brother Brian turned me on the this a while ago, he’s always is up on the coolest shit. Thanks Brian
…the silent workhorse of the surfing world, theres no sugary cliché…most folk don’t even know who we are…what we do or how we do it…let alone want to pay us for it…I never want to take this for granted…so I try and keep motivation simple, real, and positive…
Closet Junkie with Megan Massacre. A little video on my friend Megan’s personal closet, a cute video for the ladies. Megan is the best.
I’m not a big TV watcher these days, but I’m beginning to value a little time to just shut off and relax. I’ve gotten into a couple shows, one of them being Game Of Thrones on HBO, I always say “if you liked Gladiator or Braveheart you’ll love this show”. If you have not seen this show yet, lucky you because you can watch all 2 seasons that are waiting for you. (more…)
Stalley -Sound of Silence music video. I went in to my shop on my day off to spend a minute with my friend Bj Betts who was doing a guest spot with us. Bj was tattooing a rapper named Stalley who is signed with MMG, I liked the dudes vibe he seemed legit, but thinking MMG ! I instantly judged him in my mind thinking he was probably just another hip pop artist…I was wrong..
2 Chainz “Birthday Song” feat. Kanye West. I never thought I would post a 2 Chains song on my blog as the modern/ignorant hip hop has never really appealed to me, I’m more of a Tupac and Wu-Tang era guy myself. (more…)
