Some of ATL’s finest producers will be on display tomorrow night. When visual arts meets Hip Hop it equals, “Producer’s Polychromatic TruSkool’- The Ultimate Photographic Voyage Through the Producer’s Hiphop Expressionism

As a photographic account on Hip Hop Expression, this exhibit displays a keenly concocted photo- documentation, featuring 7 of Hiphop- Atlanta’s favorite groundbreaking sound- engineers: Amond Jackson, Illastrate, Yamin Semali (Clan Destined), DT (Left Field Experiment, Clan Destined), King I Divine, Rock Most (MSEIZE) and Floyd The Locsmif.

Admission is free, there will also be treats and music provided by some of ATL’s finest: DJ Rock Most, Yamin Semali and Floyd The Locsmif. The event kicks off at 7pm @ Department Store 467 Edgewood Ave.

Founder and creator Rim G says: “My ambition with this exhibit is to reach into the audience, and bring about an insight to the engineers’ personalities in the studio and out of session. Sound to me is more than what you can hear; it transcends to embody the producers themselves. I really just aimed to make people remember the classic definition of “TruSkool” in the Hiphop context– the fresh and infinitely authentic. I took that and applied it to the project because everything about it is original. It’s Hiphop, and the culture does not discriminate nor does clearly distinguish the visual from the musical. They are together, meshed as one flowing force, as the visual promotes the sonic, and the sonic in turn stimulates the imagination.”

Events: Phife Dawg – “Dear Dilla” Video Premier

Last month before hitting the road for a minute I was invited to Phife Dawg’s (A Tribe Called Quest) video premier for “Dear Dilla” a tribute to the late great James “J Dilla” Yaney who would of turned 40 years old on February 7th, 2014. This premier marked the first time anyone had seen the new video before it was launched online on OKP. The premier was something like a reunion for ATL creatives. Artists, DJ’s, Marketers, & Scenesters all came out to catch a peep of the new video. The gathering took place at Midtown Art Cinema (aka Landmark) where guests were treated to food and beverages before being ushered into the theater for the videos premier.

Special guests for the evening: Chicago video director Konee Rok, DJ Rasta Root, 4-IZE (who actually plays the part of Dilla in the video), Boog Brown (who performed a piece of Dilla’s “The $” as a poetry piece), and of course the man of the hour Phife. In addition to seeing the video there was also a Q&A where Phife spoke about working with Dilla, his health situation (which is played out in the video), as well as why he felt it was important to create this track. He also mentioned he would be releasing a new solo LP entitled “MUTTYMorphosis” real soon. Well keep you updated on the new project when we learn more. For now make you check out the video for “Dear Dilla.”

Note: After the premier in ATL, Phife & DJ Rasta Root flew to Detroit the next day for the “Dilla Day” festivities where the video was then premiered to friends and fam in the Detroit City. All photos courtesy of Kat Goduco

Events: Nike Lebron 11|11 Experience

During the last week of October I got the chance to be apart of an amazing event in Miami. The 11|11 Experience, a Nike Basketball brand activation which was created to celebrate the release of Lebron’s 11th signature shoe with the Swoosh.

The event took place is a super cool parking deck on Miami’s, South Beach at 1111 Lincoln Road. The address was play off Lebron’s 11th shoe, and the event took place on the 6th Floor playing off King Jame’s jersey number. This experience turned out to be a great way to showcase Lebron’s decade of dominance and showcase the player through the lens of his footwear.

Over a 3 day span the experience featured a display of Bron’s 11 sneaker versions, a basketball court where you could put the new shoe to the performance test, as well as cross-fit drills, Nike ID design studio, and a wall of heat showcasing some rare and limited versions of the Lebron’s shoes over the past 11 years. Guests were also able to customize Nike Elite socks & T-shirts and were able to purchase not yet released colors of the Lebron XI (Gamma Blue & Forging Iron). Several Miami youth from the Boys & Girls Club as well as Pembroke Pines & Norland High Schools were invited to be inspired by motivational speaker Eric Thomas.

Oh… I almost forgot to mention, King James himself showed up one evening and spoke with Kenny “The Jet” Smith about the new season, new shoe, etc. During the evening celebrities such as Pharell, Terrance J, and Teyanna Taylor attended to show support.

During this activation, Nike Basketball launched a new Lebron commercial entitled “Training Day” which shows Lebron’s influence and connection to the city of Miami.

This was truly an amazing experience, that I was privileged to be apart of. Check Sole Collector for more pics.
The Lebron XI shoe is available in stores now worldwide.
