While I’ve never really been a big fan of customized kicks, I can appreciate quality construction when I see it. That said, JBF Customs is no stranger to the custom kick world and boasts a number of solid takes on signature silhouettes. Now, JBF releases snaps of their latest luxe creation with the Nike Air Max 1. Jake Ferrato decked out the the iconic shoe in bright red python, lamb, crocodile, and lizard skin with suede accents throughout key areas of the model. To add to the luxe feel, Dank Customs added red tassel shoestrings to make this AM1 in [...]

Live Wild: Blue, The Misfit Brings Visual Life to “TRILLionaire” feat. X, The Misfit.

Blue the misfit

Chan-Lo No Comments

Remember when you first heard “TRILLionaire” back in March? Well Blue, X, and this Whitney Houston sample still jam in these ear buds of mine and now the Brain Gang fam deliver official visuals for this trill tune. X, The Misfit joins Blue in this Jeremy Biggers directed clip which finds both music men front-and-center for a coupling of artistic and performance-based shots. While my very first thought for “TRILLionaire” visuals had me revisiting the video for Brain Gang posse cut, “What Ya Know,” I like the mello tag-team quite a bit better. Take a look at “TRILLionaire” below and [...]

Chan-Lo No Comments

Dallas-based artist Bobby Sessions hits you with the first of three scheduled releases as he continues to prepare for his next project, BobbySessionsDallasTexas. One word, apparently. “Buckle Up” isn’t the smooth groove/soul-infused vibe we’d expect it to be given the guitar-laced beat. No, Bobby interjects all types of gruff tones as spits about where he’s been and where he’s going. Stream for yourself below and, if you dig it, download the full track here.

Thought I told you not to trust these h*es… That’s a line that will forever stick with me when I think of Jhene Aiko simply because it’s one of those real moments that we as women and men both can relate to when it comes to that good ol’ dating game. After her Coachella appearance last weekend, Jhene Aiko finally brought us last year’s “Comfort Inn Ending” in visual form. The No ID-produced track finally received the Topshelf treatment and, it’s gorgeous. Jhene forgoes the standard performance piece in order to tell a visual tale straight out of all of [...]

If Sam Smith is not yet on your ‘LISTEN NOW’ radar, go ahead and modify that. Yesterday, the British crooner decided to return to the e-scene and liberate a special stripped down version of his single, ‘Make It To Me’ for VEVO’s LIFT series. Good. God. This visual only ups my excitement for his ‘The Lonely Hour’ album, which is slated to drop later this year. Check out the visual below:

Best Apology Ever: Teyana Taylor – ‘Sorry’

Teyana-Taylor-7e3_8

Chan-Lo No Comments

I’m guilty of being one of those people who have wondered why I know more about Teyana Taylor’s sneaker fetish than her musical chops, but that began to change as soon as I pressed that young play button on her latest offering, “Sorry.” G.O.O.D Music’s first lady returns to the scene with an emotional ballad that acts as a musical goodbye of sorts to a person who was the right type of wrong. The stripped down piano number also brings even more awareness to vocal chops that indicate that Teyana will be one to [...]
