September 10, 2007

hi, do we remember jean grae? when i was listening to her she was on thirdearth, now she’s with talib kweli’s blacksmith records(warner bros.), reppin’ okayplayer.. when i was in TEC back in ’02/’03, ms. grae was one of my idols. yknow, fella femcee.. she’s got a creamy flava, her voice alto-esque & smooth.. think a light modern mc lyte. she’s no bullshit lyricist, & her beats are on point.. please aquaint yourself with this fly female emcee, or you need to recognize.

a brief biography about tsidi ibrahim aka jean grae: she was born in capetown, south africa from a family of musicians. studied vocal performance in the highschool of performing arts, then majored in music business at nyu.. joined natural resource in ’96.. after nat res dissolved in 98, she changed her name from ibrahim, to what?what?, to jean grae. in ’02, she released her first lp attack of the attacking things.. throughout her career she has also recorded tracks with numerous major hip hop artists, atmosphere, the roots, talib kweli, the herbaliser, da beatminerz, planet asia, dj jazzy jeff, phonte, mr. len, masta ace, vordul mega, c-rayz walz, and immortal technique among them.

the wutang dance

September 9, 2007

these regional hood dances, i love. whatchu know about the wu-tang? wu-tang is a dance originating out of philly, by a group of people from the area of north philadelphia. the dance is normally performed to baltimore club. the dance involves a jerking of the arms in an up-&-down/side-to-side motion. each individual person adds their own spin to the dance, be it fancy footwork, or miming gunshots. The dance has become very popular around the tri-state & is compared with the chicken noodle soup dance of harlem which inspired the song “Chicken Noodle Soup” by DJ webstar, the bay area’s hyphy, atlanta’s crunk, baltimore’s rockin’ off & compton’s krumping. this dance is not associated with the wu-tang clan or any of it’s members..

how to live like ghostface

September 5, 2007

When it comes to style, I brought a lot to the game. I like to be different, G. I always had visions in my head on how I like to be seen, so I could get fly all day and look like a live rap nigga. When I first became Tony Starks, it was like, I had this Tony Starks shirt. It was like red and kind of cream, a little bit and shit. The collar was just on some real ill shit and red is my favorite color, anyway. When I put it on I felt like that nigga! I make the clothes work for me. That’s why I could throw on the robe and don’t look soft in it. Because it belongs, like, “I’m that fuckin’ iron-man nigga about to take over the whole fuckin’ city!”

People always wanna know how I got started with the robe. I used to smoke a lot of wet back in the days. One time I was in Beverly Hills, all high and shit, and I seen an ill robe! Looked like it was Nautica-mad flags on it. I tried it on and it was looking bangin’! So I’d wear it outside, all wetted up and shit. After me and Rae did that Wallabees shit-boom, boom-came through with the silk shirts and all that other shit, I kept it moving and rocked the robe in the “Criminology” video. Niggas like Puff Daddy was loving me for that. Like, “How the fuck he gonna come through in the ill robe? Come on, son.” Niggas couldn’t really understand, but I was just too big for them.
I wanted the bird piece to go with the robe, so I could go on stage and just be that nigga that I am. The bird comes from growing up in Stapleton. This nigga named Dusty and a lot of other Jamaican niggas was getting real heavy with the truck jewelry. So I’m like, “Y’all niggas want to get heavy? Alright, we gonna get heavy then!” And that bird was heavy-four fuckin’ pounds. They had to melt down, I think, a kilo-and-a-half of gold, and money made my shit ridiculous. But it made a statement.

Style is deeper than clothes and jewelry, though. That’s why I fucked with the ice cream in the “Apollo Kids” video. The nigga in the ice cream truck came through by the set. You know my mind goes with shit, so I’m like, “Oh shit, let me get an ice cream.” Boom, boom. Then it’s, “Yo, shoot this shit.” Niggas on the set was buggin’. I had sprinkles on my shit and all that shit, ice cream drippin’! Whatever I think in my head that might look fly, knowing me, I’m gonna hold that down.

That goes to show you, at the end of the day, style is about much more than that material shit-it’s me! It’s just like, you could put me in an ill fur and I’ll bang anybody out in the fur. It’s ’cause I got that swagger. I know how to tilt that hat. It’s how I walk; it’s how I talk. It’s my bop, how my jeans is cut, how my jeans lean on my boots, how my shirt lean on my belt, how far my shirt is tucked in my pants, halfway. It’s all about my charisma and my confidence, that’s where the style really comes from. If I got a mirror in front of me or not, I know how to look good. A lot of niggas don’t know that. Do you?

props to complex

home sweet new temporary home

September 2, 2007

i’m moving into a new house for the rest of the year & it’s in my best interest to make it as cozy as possible.. i.e. lace the crib in proper steez. i have the perfect theme, best of both my worlds.. ethnic & street.. while configuring this thought, it pretty much came down to a fresh prince type feel.. i’m down with that.. bright ethnic patterns, keepn it street.. i want touches of gold & jewels, substance of the natural earth & hiphop bling.. ha.. i will keep a basic black base to tone down a lot of the flair that will be expected to fill the room.. accented in gold, keepin it live in color. i like that.




over the bed is a black sheer canopy, sexy huh?

the idea of magazine & newspaperstands indoors have been lingering for a while

of course, crates as shelves.. typical indoor street furniture, i know.

if it ain’t gold, it will be

i also expect good art on the walls

& you can’t forget

damn baby you smell like neosoul!

you get the drift!
