Art: Heineken Mural Project Invades ATL

If you live in ATL, perhaps you’ve seen the various art splashed walls around neighborhoods like Edgewood, 4th Ward, & Little 5 Points. Last month during the 9th annual A3C Hip Hop Festival, the Heineken brand seized the opportunity to launch the Heineken Mural Project and bring some color to some naked walls around town. Read more about it below.

After a successful run in Miami during Art Basel 2012 and in DC during the G40 Art Summit, the Heineken Mural Project launches in Atlanta as the official art partner of A3C Festival and the A3C Art Campus.

The Heineken Mural Project will feature six renowned street artists creating five new murals across the city, pop up parties, music concerts and more. The Heineken Mural Project artists include some of the most talented veterans in street art. Tasked with the mission and creative freedom to interpret Heineken’s Open Your World message, the murals will take a life of their own and inspire all who bear witness. Celebrity-status street artists like Chor Boogie hailing from San Francisco, Clogtwo and Inkten from Singapore along with Marka27 based in Brooklyn, NYC, and Atlanta-based artist Paperfrank with more artists to be announced.

The Heineken Mural Artists will paint five new murals alongside some of the top hip hop talent during the A3C Festival, through out some of Atlanta’s Most exciting art districts and neighborhoods. Old Fourth Ward, Little 5 Points and Castleberry Hill will each shocase a new Heineken mural adding vibrant colors to the community. A3C [All 3 Coasts] is one of the largest hip-hop festivals in the US and takes place annually in Atlanta. As the official art partner of the A3C, Heineken Mural Project will host several parties at the mural locations where the Heineken Mural Artists will paint live with top hip hop talent such as Questlove, Ghostface Killah, Too Short, Bun B, A$AP Ferg, Rich Homie Quan and ScHoolboy Q.

New Music: 4-Ize Feat. Ludacris “It’s My Job”

its-my-job.jpg

New music from 4-Ize, this time featuring Ludacris letting you know what they both enjoy doing best… Their job!

A few years ago I was with 4-Ize when he linked up with producers J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League at a studio in ATL. They played a few beats, and there was a joint 4-Ize really wanted. When I heard this, I told him he should definitely do something with it. I din’t necessarily know what he should do, but I felt it had a nice bounce too it that I know he could bet busy on.

The single artwork features a picture of 4-Ize & Luda from when they were kids. For those that don’t know the two grew up with each other on the westside of Chicago, where they started a rap group called “Loudmouf Hooligans.”

It’s definitely great to see this song go from start to finish. Always great to hear 4 and Luda on the same track as well. Check it out for yourself and let me know what you think in the comments.

Foot Fetish: 3lab5 Jordan 5 Releases This Saturday 9/21

3lab5-Jordan-5s-official.jpg

September is here and things just got real! Fall is amongst us, and the sneaker gods at Nike & Brand Jordan have a lot of heat coming as temperatures in most places start to drop.

Since images of the 3lab5 Jordan V hit the net a few months back, sneakerheads have been either praised or dissed this release. Yep there’s a LOT of elephant print on here, and for some it’s too much, while for others it’s unique and since the iconic elephant print pattern has never been used on the Jordan 5, it becomes a must have.

The first thing I noticed when I first saw this shoe, is it reminded me a lot of the Atmos Air Max 1 for some years back.

atmos-air-max-1.jpg

The 3lab5 release is apart of the new Jordan “Elements” series. This series mixes the most iconic elements (such as elephant print) with the most classic Air Jordans, shining a new light on the already classic collection of legendary footwear. The Jordan V (5) originally released in 1993 is celebrating it’s 20th anniversary this year as well. In the past month 3 Jordan 5′s have been released: Fear Pack, Fire Red, and Doernbecher 5.

This shoe will be released this Saturday, September 21st. The price tag is $225 and if you plan on getting a pair, I suggest getting your game plan together ASAP!
If you don’t get your hands on these, the “Bel Air V” is coming next.
Happy Hunting.

Movies: Iceberg Slim: Portrait Of A Pimp (Official Trailer)

A few months back I told you about the new Iceberg Slim doc in Movies To Check For. I got a chance to see this film earlier this year at the Atlanta Film Festival. It does a great job of giving your the foundation of Iceberg Slim. The conditions and situations which shaped his behavior. It also shows you the side many people probably have never seen… his wife and kids, as well as how his books became thing of legend.

It’s definitely a great piece of work and I can’t wait for the DVD to drop.

Until then… check out the official trailer, and remember, if you ain’t choosing, you losing. Make your next move your best move. Keep it pimping!

Keep an eye out for when this film hits your town. Check showtimes.
