Jordan Garland’s #ADetroitFilm Trailer

Jordan Garland's #ADetroitFilm

@JordanGarlandMI This was too dope not to share. the homie Jordan Garland, one of Detroit aka Motor City’s prominent skateboard advocates his been secretly(not really)working on a film called “#ADetroitFilm”, titled exactly how it’s written. From the looks of the trailer, it seems that it’s a documentary on the city’s up and coming skateboarders, bmx riders, and musicians. But if you actually look at it a little deeper, the cinematography tells a deeper story; old run downed abandoned buildings, youth exerting creativity, and plenty more. Check out the footage after the jump along with some dope photos. Check out @NetworkA for more updates.

Nicki Minaj ft Drake, Lil Wayne, and Chris Brown – “Only” [Video]


YouTube Preview Image

Here is Nicki’s newest visual titled “Only” featuring Drake, Lil Wayne, and Chris Brown. Nice to “know” she never f*cked Wayne or Drake but if she did, she’d menage with them and make them eat her ass like a cupcake. This is coming from a girl who calls these guys her “brothers”. Am I the only one who certified Drake as a creep when it comes to women? I don’t know about you but I wouldn’t condone “my brother” saying when it’s over with my man now, he’s first in line, especially on a song. That’s not awkward? Then Lil Wayne goes on to say “whoever her man is, he isn’t hitting it right”. Shots f*ckin fired. Who REALLY is hitting that? I wonder what “her man” is thinking…..

Speaking about what wondering. With the apparent great divide occurring in the Cash Money camp, we’re all wondering how the separation of Lil Wayne from Birdman will play out. What does this mean for the future of artists currently on their roster? I’d like to know.

Gunplay ft Peryon J Kee – “I Tried” [Video]



Directed by Rob Dade, this visual for “I Tried” will be the last for Gunplay. Moving forward, he’ll be releasing material as Don Logan in 2015. What does this mean? I’m not sure but I’m hoping a vlog or something explaining the change is soon to come. In the mean time, enjoy the visual, which has cameos from Maybach Music label mates Quise and Young Breed.

‘Jupiter Jack’ scheduled to be released on January 1, 2015.

Crooks & Castle and Naturel Art Basel 2014

Crooks & Castles x Naturel Art Basel 2014

@Naturel @YesJulz @CrooksnCastles  Art Basel 2014 was in full swing come Thursday, December 4th and Miami’s own Wynwood Art district was full of different individuals from all over the country and world there for one purpose: to check out new art and have some fun. On the outskirts of the Wynwood Art District bordering Overtown and Allapattah, one event took place at a showroom normally used for Imagine Lifestyles Luxury Rentals. California street wear brand, Crooks & Castles displayed their new lifestyle collaboration with artist, Naturel.

Hosted by and curated by Miami’s own YesJulz, individuals were amongst some of the elite in the fashion, art, sports and entertainment industry. Hennessy VS provided the beverages for the night and attendees danced and enjoyed themselves to the sounds of guests DJs such as Vashtie, Bamski, HXV, and the Umbrella Boys. Who’s who of Miami of Miami were in attendance along with people that flew in for Art Basel. Some notable mentions are NFL star Victor Cruz, photographer Jonathan Mannion, retired NFL player Edgerrin James, street wear aficionado Ronnie Fieg, photographer Derick G, and We the Best artist Ace Hood and many more. This was an event that team 8and9 could not miss during Art Basel weekend.

This was not the first time Crooks & Castle and Naturel collaborated together. Last year, the two brands were brought together during Art Basel 2013 and released their first collection. This year the two brands collaborated once more with sofa pillows and carpet reminiscent of Crooks & Castles classic icon of the medusa head with a Naturel spin to it. In addition, the two brands collaborated on jeweler and Naturel  had art pieces which were conducive to the lifestyle of Crooks & Castles (i.e. check the photo of the Arm and Hammer Baking Soda and a couple bricks laying around). Check out the pics below.
