Those old bifocals not workin for ya anymore? Then head on over to Futura Laboratories in Japan and pick up a pair of these sleek new F2T frames by Futura2000. A simple, yet solid black frame make these glasses work with both correcting lens’ and sunglasses.
So if you happen to be in Japan make sure you pick up a pair…and while you’re at it grab me a pair too. Sorry, not going to be in Japan anytime soon.
Looking for more refreshing music for your ears? Of course you are!
DOWNLOAD and enjoy!
So if you’ve been following us since we popped on the scene, you know by now that we don’t talk too much about clothing and brands that you’re not already familiar with.
Why do we do this you ask?? Well, it’s real simple; by the end of ’07 into ’08 it seemed that everyone and their 1st grade gym teacher had a clothing line. Someone would slap some screen printing on the front of a t-shirt, give it a corny name and volia, they were going to be the next Russell Simmons. Until their “online store” opened, then…wha…what’s that…you hear the crickets?? Haha. Basically, we’ve lost all hope for newcomers until we stumbled upon Carrot Clothing.
Coming to you straight from
After only one year, the brand is currently available in 20 countries worldwide. These guys not only produce dope tees, but cardigan sweaters, hoodies, and fitteds, setting them apart from the mom and pop “clothing line.” Also, collabs with high rollers like Dalek, Flying Fortress, and 123Klan already under their belt, this brand is looking pretty damn good.
Check out a few images below from their ’08 Lookbook and be sure to hit up their website and MySpace to show these dudes some love. If your local boutique is sleeping and currently not stockin Carrot, tell ‘em to wake up or close shop.
First off, congrats again to GFC’s own Mickey Factz for his appearance in October’s issue of XXL.
To remind folks again why Mickey is one of those keeping the game alive, he comes with another dope mixtape entitled, “The Leak Vol. 2-The Inspiration.”
Mr. Factz released every single one of these joints on his MySpace for download, premiering a new track each week. Luckey for those who slept and didn’t stay up on the new releases, Mickey packaged each track in a nice DOWNLOAD for us. As usual, from beginning to end this is a craaazzy collection of songs. He even breaks down each track in the blog on his MySpace page.
The first Commonwealth x Gentei was sick, so they're doing it again. If you're in the B-more area this Labor day weekend, this is a must attend event.
If we post it, then it’s dope. No need to question, just DOWNLOAD the jawnt.
Our boy Faboloso is back!
After a brief hiatus, Fab is back and ready to go to work. Gearing up for his next album, tentatively entitled “Loso’s Way,” Fabolous is staying in the blue flame. Expect collabs from Mariah Carey, Red Café, Joe Budden, Swizz Beatz, and more on the upcoming project. The album is scheduled to drop on Thanksgiving.
What more can you ask for, turkey, gravy, stuffing, and Fabolous blasting in the background. I bet the Indians and Pilgrims didn’t do it quite like this at their party.
Official Brand comes hard this Fall/Winter ’08 season with not only their sick fitteds but now an assortment of premium tee’s. Some of their hats we've seen before but are now being released in different colorways.
Now some would say we love Official because of their name...then there are those with an IQ above 1 who know its because these dudes just have dope shit. I’m just sayin…
Jeezy better stop leaking all of these tracks before he faces a recession when his album drops.
Shouts out to my extended family on the west coast and all those throwin’ the WE without the E up!
Adding to the list of artists making dope music in today’s industry full of posers, copycats, imitators, fakers, lames, jackers, etc. etc.(first it was retro, now everyone’s a fuckin’ space cadet), newcomer DNEZ is keeping it really real son.
DOWNLOAD, rock to these joints on your own, and make sure you hit up his website for more bangers. Don’t forget; when he blows up remember who put you on first.
We posted the video for this joint, but now here's the DOWNLOAD for the actual track, John Legend Feat. Andre 3000 "Green Light."
If you've heard it, then you know it's bananas. So what are you waiting for, DOWNLOAD this jammy, add it to your iPod playlist and come back tomorrow for some more hotness (not sure if that's a word but come back anyway, haha). Holla!
Each week we will feature one or two new artists on the scene that we feel will be on the mouths of many in the near future. Think of it as “Unsigned Hype” on HGH.
You see, we realized that we were rockin Mickey Factz, The Cool Kids, Wale, etc., before these dudes went world wide. With that said, we feel like we have an uncanny sense for what’s hot and want to be one of the many that put these up and comers on. We’re not just doing this for music; anything new and creative will be featured here.
So keep coming back each week to see who’s on the who’s who list, and if YOU feel you have what it takes hit us up. If we agree, we’ll hit you back; if we don’t well….stay in school. It’s that simple. Peace!
Ok, so we broke the news the other day and without disappointment…HERE IT IS!
T.I. feat. Kanye West, Jay-Z, and Lil Wayne “Swagger Like Us (S.L.U.)."
Don't get mad, its just coooomedy!
Ok, now we’re not ones likely to start rumors or even hop on the rumor train, but this one is too epic not to at least mention. As ‘ol George Bush would say, “rumors on the internets” is that these dudes are all on one track! Are you serious?!?
The next joint to be leaked for T.I.’s new album is a track entitled “Swagger Like Us (S.L.U)” feat. Jay-Z, Kanye West, T.I., and Lil Wayne. This is a serious line up and I hear the track is crazy.
Until we get our hands on this one, keep us on internet speed dial. You don’t want to be the last kid at school to have this joint.
I'm sure all of you by now have heard of U-N-I and you have even heard their street album "Fried Chicken & Watermelon." But...juuuust in case you haven't here it is for your listening pleasure. DOWNLOAD and make sure you drop our boys a line and tell 'em how much you love their style.
Also, make sure you vote for U-N-I to get a chance to perform at the 2008 MTV2 VMA's. Log onto www.la.mtv2.com. Im out...
No this isn't some soundtrack of women in labor, this is waaayyy hotter than that (wait did I just insinuate women in labor were hot?....never mind).
Bizzack with more exclusive shit, Okayplayer.com and Rhode Island MC Theo (and no not Huxtable) drop a hot new mixtape entitled "The Birth." Once again, Super Official didn't let you down. DOWNLOAD, play, and enjoy. It's that simple. Bye!
Here's a sneak peek at the fall '08 collection (below) for another one of our favorite brands, IM-KING. Humm...what's that you say? Your local boutique doesn't carry IM-KING? Well hand them a match and some gasoline and tell 'em to burn that bitch to the ground. Come on what are you stupid! Get wit it.
Those dudes that are just too cool for school, "The Cool Kids," are back with another banger. This week we bring to you a new joint entitled "Delivery Man." Enjoy!
I had a chance to check out this mixtape recently entitled “What Up Tho!?” by Ced Hughes, and its bananas. If you love a good mixtape and tired of the ones you get from your local drug dealer/rapper/barber, then DOWNLOAD this joint and thank me later.
Ok, when you get to a point where you have THIS much money you know you pretty much have it made.
Ahem, lemme get my movie guy voice on… “In a land where Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and Aston Martins are as easy to come by as heroine in Baltimore City, an anonymous guy with waaaayyy too much fuckin money makes things a little interesting. Starring a once white Lambo, a guy whose trying to make a statement, and a Sharpie (back off Beckham).” Hahaha
With the latest release of their mash up, Cookin’ Soul, bring us “OJAYSIS” (that’s Jay-Z x Oasis for you slower folk). Mixing some classic Jigga tracks with a little Oasis makes for another dope mash up from the production team.
I’ve been told that the mixtape has garnered over 10k downloads since its release. So if you’re still reading this then you’re obviously one of the “slow folk” I mentioned earlier. With that said let me just be blut, DOWNLOAD the fuckin CD…hahaha
This track right here is some reaaallll dope shit! Don't believe me download it and check it out for yourself. Just remember who put you on.
Download: DJ Khaled feat. T -Pain & Kanye West - "Go Hard"
