SNL Celebrity Family Feud

While Mayweather and the Clippers were winning tonight, a new episode of SNL featured a great skit above with a simple premise: Celebrity Family Feud.

The night’s host, Andrew Garfield of Spiderman 2, plays an excellently exaggerated JT while Jay Pharoah slayed, per usual, as Drake. Watch the full skit above and the part that’ll reel ya in below.

Lil Wayne f/ Drake “Believe Me”

Believe me, this one’s fire.

OK, I’ll see myself out.

UPDATE: CDQ/Mastered.

Wayne, Drake, produced in lethal fashion by Boi-1da and Vinylz. Drizzy kicks it off and spits the hook — both of the high quality of his recent solo releases. But that’s not all from Drake. Before he comes back, Weezy spits a nice verse from beginning to end. The first few lines and the latter half particularly shine. Then the beat slows down for more raps from Drake, then Wayne. Unique structure, and though I like the first half of the 5:39 song more, I’m going to have this rollin’ all the way through. Add this one to the rotation, it will fire ya up for Carter V.

I’m the only one that get the job done, I don’t know a n**** that can cover for me.
Got some game from my daddy, so she might say she love me, she don’t love me like she say she love me.
Believe me, believe me.  I’m the n**** boy they love me in the street.
I’m not tryin’ to find nobody else to be. I’m the one they see because they all..
Believe me.

– Drake’s latest fire hook

Joey Purps @ Double Door: CIMMFest’s Closed Sessions 5.3.14

So ya girl been slacking. After weeks of being in an odd uninspired musical limbo, I knew my ass had to do something Friday night. The move? CIMMFest’s Closed Sessions Showcase at Double Door. Shout out to WhoDough who came through with the music events and put me out of my music funk.

Hosted by Closed Sessions, the event featured names like Exile, Dally Auston, Joey Purps, ShowYouSuck, and Alex Wiley. While all these artists put on a great show, my personal favorite was Joey Purps aka Indigo Purple aka that Saint Alfred x Stussy model.


A definite highlight of the night, Joey Purps was hyped from the start. With his dynamic stance and ability to vibe with the crowd, he had the whole crowd listening, appreciating, and moving to his every word. Props definitely needs to be given not only for his clear talent but his overall stage presence. Rarely do you see a performer actually PERFORM and feel comfortable with just well, being themselves. Most of all Purps has TASTE. Something that can be seen in both his performances and the level of detail he puts in his music. Both embody the level of passion, sense of taste, and realness that a lot of music lacks. Lucky for us, real artists are still coming up in Chicago.

*Special shout out to Towkio and his luxury ass hair bun for coming through on stage. No lie though, your hair be on some other level of grandness, b.*

Conclusion? Watch out for him. Though he’s been hot on the music scene for a while along with his crew Save Money, this guy still continues to bring us some versatile shit. With Summer ’14 coming through, Chicago needs to come correct for whatever Joey Purps and his crew have in store.

Featured Interview: Designer Gianni Mora

Okay, before I even start to get in depth, about midway through the interview, I mention Ian Connor. For clarification, I was not referring to him as a designer, I brought him up as a part of the question. Now moving straight into the review- Being able to sit down with Gianni Mora was good experience. For Gianni only being 17 and a Junior in High School, it was very refreshing to see someone so young create such good positive attention for something he created and has a passion for. Gianni spoke about really how things have been since he dropped his sweater “Future Love” in March, and just really all about how things have been moving forward.  The internet is such a powerful tool and Gianni utilizes it to the fullest while gaining more and more attention. There is much more to come from the young designer, more lines, more pieces, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw some more “Hooding”.
