Deirdre and crew visit Haiti

My old boss Deirdre Maloney, owner of BPMW Agency and three of her friends, Terrence J, Fred Whitaker, Jamel Davenport, and David Joseph, recently visited Haiti to see first hand the calamity that the January 12th earthquake caused.  Collectively, they put together a short video highlighting what they saw, their interaction with the people, and a message about what needs to be done to fix things.  It is refreshing to see these media personalities deal with the real things going on in the world and committing to helping.

Trilly and Truly–“Basic Info” Collection

Lupe Fiasco takes time to introduce and quickly explain the ideals behind the “Basic Info” collection from his Trilly and Truly line.  Based on three main ideals, peace, represented by Martin Luther king Jr.;  anarchy, Noam Chomsky;  and history, shown as Adolf Hitler,  Lupe tells us that the collection is designed simplistically and has fundamental ideals.  The collection will be housed at select retailers including RSVP Gallery in Chicago.

Kanye Spits at Facebook HQ’s

Kanye spits an acappella off of his highly anticipated album Good Ass Job.  It is hilarious to think about all of the…”less than urban” corporate folks that were in the room when The Louis Vuitton Don spit some of his hardcore, racially charged lyrics.  Kanye rocked this room in the same fashion as one of the packed arenas on tour.  His passion for music, life, and fashion seeped through his delivery.  I CANNOT wait for this ish to drop!!!! Enjoy….

Trailer–“Downtown Calling”

This intimate look into the club/party/rap lifestyles of the 1970’s in New York City is ruggedly documented in this film.  Not only do you see the start of a lot of the trends and styles that are being re-created today, you see the sheer poverty and corruption that had a strangle hold on this city.  With cameo’s from greats such as Fab Five Freddy, Bobbito Garcia,  Rock Steady Crew, Keith Haring, Africa Bambaataa, and Basquiat, you will see what this was really like.  The documentary will premiere at The New York International Latino Film Festival.
