Clipse- Hello Pusha, Hi Malice

The other night I went to the Clipse concert @ Highline Ballroom in NYC. I was standing next to the guy who taped this footage. It's definitely better than the pathetic pics I took on my camera phone. Enjoy.

Random footage from ATL

Our amigas Nina Sky posted some footage from their recent trip in ATL. We posted their first single Curtain Call a while back but here's a cute lil clip they posted while in a session w/ Toomp. Shout out to DJ DOUBLE 0, Kidz in the Hall!

New music from La Lioness MONICA

The sound isn't all that fab but its new music from Ms.MONICA. She's grown now. This will have to do til I find a better one. She has a new show on peachtree tv called "The Single" and maybe she'll be lucky enough to have it picked up by vh1 or mtv.




Still Standing (full version) - Monica

Funny Piece in NY Times Style Section about "summer scarves'




Cynthia Rowley Fashion Show


Funny that I came across this randomly because this very thought just crossed my mind the other day. Bill Cunningham from the NY TIMES talks about how crazy it is for women to be attached to their scarves in the blazin NY heat. We all know this a cute look for EVERY other season, but a scarf in the hot summer heat?? Don't get it! You know that your neck is NOT cold. Even if it looks cute...it's not worth the misery. I mean I've sacrificed comfort for fashion before, but I don't think these scarves are gonna make or break these outfits. I can see how shoes will. Check these women out in this link below...they don't seem to be phased!

1. When I was a kid I daydreamed about...greatness

2. As an adult I daydream about...the day I can finally get out of the rat race and chill in the country/island/beach

3. In my group of friends I'm the one who...inspires others to do and be the best they can

4. When I was a little girl I was told that I couldn't_____bc I was a girl
beat the boys (in track) but I proved them wrong! I went to a high school (Central in Philly) that used to be all boys and there were only 4 girls on the team so we had to run with the boys and I used to beat a lot of them in practice! They would get teased afterward. Bu running with the boys helped get a full track scholarship.

5. How did you break into your industry? I made a lot of connections while attending Howard University and started out working on music videos as a production assistant + casting director. My first industry job was working at The William Morris Agency. I learned the ins + outs of the business and players in the game. I next began doing independent marketing and events planning and then went to work at Nike as Music Marketing manager. At Nike, I was able to expand a lot of my creative/innovative marketing ideas. Currently, I run a marketing/pr agency, Sun in Leo (http://www.suninleo.com/) which builds branding strategies and promotions for clients (Diesel, Pony, Carol’s Daughter, K Swiss, Volkswagen). I am also an owner/partner at Frank White ( http://www.frankwhitenyc.com/ ) nyc , a new cafĂ©/gallery space in Brooklyn and continue to work on independent film projects and finishing my documentary, Hip Hop: The New World Order about the global impact of hip hop culture.

6. Favorite part of what you do? Manifesting my visions

7. Least favorite part of what you do? The personalities!

8. Who do you admire in your field? Diddy

9.Fav designers are: Patricia Field as a stylist who mixes vintage, couture + street fashion (they sell their own line at the store). Her style really reflects my personality.

10. Moment your hustle pays off was/will be when: I have traveled all over the world and know people in most major cities (Tokyo, Paris, London, Sao Paulo,) I realized I made it when I go to those places and know all the right people to roll VIP everywhere I go!

11. My family is proud of me because...I do what I love, follow my passion and always do my best!
