Salvatore Ferragamo – “A Man’s Story”

Often rules are made to be broken. For without, convention can never become disrupted. Salvatore Ferragamo celebrates a few of todays rule breakers through a visual, fashion experience. Featuring: Douglas Booth, Henrik Lundqvist, A$AP Rocky, Ryan McGinley, Alexander Gilkes, Louis-Marie De Castlebajac, & Tyrone Wood.

In 1914, 16-year-old Salvatore Ferragamo emigrated from southern Italy to Boston and then California where he convinced his brothers to join him in creating a made-to-measure shoemaking service. Within just five years it had become a beacon of luxury for Hollywood’s greatest stars, and the Ferragamo story was born. Salvatore Ferragamo followed his beliefs and made his own rules. 100 years on, Ferragamo presents A Man’s Story, an online series by photographer and filmmaker Francesco Carrozzini under the creative direction of the brand’s Massimiliano Giornetti, that highlights the notion of ‘making your own rules’. Through an intimate and compelling series of stories, told by an eclectic cast of contemporary men, Ferragamo’s luxury lifestyle collections are presented in new and surprising settings.

Television: ATL-The Untold Story Atlanta’s Rise In The Rap Game

Last month VH1 aired a very retrospective documentary on the origins of Hip Hop in Atlanta, GA. As somebody who’s been in the city for almost 20 years now it was great to see not only the story of the music, but the story of the community and how all these things shaped what Hip Hop in ATL sounded (sounds) like. I caught this on TV the night it aired. Shouts to executive producer Chaka Zulu and all the other folks involved with bringing this to life. If you missed it when it came on, feel free to check it out in it’s entirety here.

RECAP: Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival Summer 2014

2 weekends ago I was honored with the chance to attend the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival. Tickets were provided, so I had to make the pilgrimage to NYC to check it out.
The festival similar to the A3C Fest in ATL is celebrating it’s 10th year in operation this year.

Hosted in a vacant lot in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (right off the East River) it was a beautiful sunny day for an outside concert for sure. When I arrived Tanya Morgan joined by Spec Boogie were getting on stage. I dipped out and missed a few acts including Brand Nubian, Beatnuts, and who knows who else. Luckily I looked at the BKHHF website that morning, and noticed that Jay Electronica’s set time had been moved up to an earlier time. The post mentioned his set would be epic, and there would be special guests you didn’t want to miss.

30 minutes after his initial set time though, his DJ was still spinning his actual songs to the crowd. The host Uncle Ralph McDaniels and other staff looked like they were stalling, the sound engineer kept checking mics (as if the mics weren’t crispy already from the last performance). I started thinking to myself did this just turn into a Jay Elec listening party? Is he here? Will their be a show?

And FINALLY... Jay graced the stage flanked by a crew of brothers dressed in F.O.I (Fruit Of Islam) garb. Once he appeared, I must say he definitely gave the crowd a show. The hour long set featured all the joints you would probably expect to hear in a Jay Elect set: “Eternal Sunshine,” “Exhibit A (Transformations)”, “Exhibit C,” etc. Special guests included Mac Miller (who straight forgot whatever verse he was supposed to be spitting) which turned into freestyle session between the two. There was also Talib Kweli, and J-Cole who seemed to appear and disappear rather quickly. The show was going great and had no one else appeared on stage with Jay, I would of been perfectly fine with that.

But being the magician Jay Elect is, or course he had a trick up his sleeve and that was none other than Jay-Z himself. Hov didn’t just pop up to rock the couple cuts he has with Jay Elect, he set it off by his rendition of “Young, Gifted, and Black,” and even gave the crowd a treat of “P.S.A.” as well as his joints with Jay Elect including the latest “We Made It.”

I took a bunch of camera phone pics, and even got some video. Then I saw all these fly pictures and HD video, and put my stuff in the archives. HA.

Oh… and before you see these videos, I must mention I ran into Spike Lee who had a 40 Acres Pop Up Shop set up at the fest. I treated myself to a T-shirt and a “Do The Right Thing” behind the scenes book which Spike actually signed… Not too bad considering where we were a few years back! HA.

After this.. CJ Pro Era rocked, and Raekwon did his thing with a few brooklyn guest including AZ, Masta Killa, Troy Ave, and Papoose. But too be honest nothing quite surpassed the energy of the moment seen above.

Technology: “goTenna” Making Texting Possible Without Service

text-even-when-you-dont-have-service-with-the-gotenna-1.jpg

Every time I’m in NYC on the subway, I think “when is somebody going to invent something that provides cell service underground, so I can send text?”

Now If I wasn’t so lazy, I would of patented this idea 10 years ago when it first crossed my mind :(
Recently in NYC I thought about this again, and figured in 2014 SOMEBODY had to come up with this concept by now.

Doing some research I came across a device called “GoTenna.” It’s basically a portable antenna that wirelessly pairs with your cell phone so you can send text messages even when you don’t have service.

The goTenna is available for a special pre-order discount price of $149 USD per pair, while prices will increase to $299 USD per pair when the discounted units sell out. Find out more about the device here.
