David: Congrats to Sarah Kjelleren!

Yesterday we had a huge storm sweep through the Vermont area. I lost power for about 30 minutes and completely lost a paper I was writing, but it's whatever. Dope things were happening like this photo that Sarah Kjelleren took last night that appeared on the front page of the Burlington Free Press! Keep moving up and you know you're always TKFV family over here! Girls got the eye.

Gray: Kicks of the Week

This weeks "Kicks of the Week" are in so many ways a hugely impressive design from Generic Surplus for vendor selects. This plimsole features a minimalist design that is enhanced by its friendly price making it for a great addition for summer. The canvas upper with no detailing and combination of the white midsole and gum outsole completes the piece in my opinion.

For a closer look they are available over at Honeyee.Store

David: 50 Cent's Shocking Slim Down... DAMN

I know what you're probably thinking... Something along the lines of WTF. So I'll tell you right away before you start thinking anymore. These images appeared on Thisis50 and shows a slimmed down 50 for his role in the upcoming film, Things Fall Apart. In the movie, 50 plays a football player who has been diagnosed with cancer. He started off at a healthy size of 204 pounds and dropped down to 160 pounds with a liquid diet and three-hour-a-day treadmill for nine weeks. The things celebrities do these days... Tough job. Check out some more images of the smaller 50 Cent below:

Gray: Throwback Whenever

Alright so this was a song I originally was going to use as a formal throwback vid, but David is beatin me to the punch each week (as usual), so I'm not waiting another week to throw this gold up. I love hearing old songs that you used to be obsessed with but no longer hear... this is one of them. Recently, on a turn with friends Amanda, Maura, and Vanni, Slow Jamz by Twista, Kanye, and Jamie Foxx came on. This has been playin a lot recently on my iTunes, and the video is pretty tight too. Check it out below:


David: Boondocks Season 3 x Episode 4

I'm going to start throwing these up every week now when there's a new episode. Here's episode 4 of the Boondocks. Yerr

Shouts to worldstarhiphop


David: Throwback Tuesdays!

Another Tuesday another Throwback video! This week is Gang Starr's song Mass Appeal off of their album Hard to Earn. For real I've played this song over 100 times in my iTunes playlist and it goes down as one of my favorite hip-hop tracks of all time. Unfortunately Guru, 1/2 of Gang Starr, just passed away last month at the age of 48 and was a huge hit to all of the music world. R.I.P. to one of the greatest. Check out the video below.

Back at it is Back at the Berrics. For those who aren't with it, Battle at the Berrics is a contest The Berrics (Steve Berra and Eric Koston) put on (for now the 3rd time) where there is a 32 skater bracket, and a lot of games of S.K.A.T.E. Kids go onto The Berrics and make their bracket and submit them like they'd do for March Madness. Each game of skate is filmed and uploaded to their youtube, and kids watch to see who moves on to the next round. These videos are viewed a lot!! Some up t 200,000+ times. Check their videos at their private skatepark in LA. Only people who know Steve Berra and Eric Koston can really go there and skate, although their cell phone #s have leaked a bit.. we met some kids with it. Anyway, go make a bracket here and watch some of these berrics videos below.


David: Nas for Levi’s Pioneer Sessions Campaign

David: PaperMonster Ate That Little Boy x Vincent Michael Gallery

Me and the man responsible for this work (who goes by the name PaperMonster) started talking just last week and he told me about his show, "PaperMonster Ate That Little Boy," which is coming up on Friday, July 2nd, at Vincent Michael Gallery located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The minute I took a look at his artwork I fell in love... for real I might need one of these for myself. To get more info on the event read the summary below:
“PaperMonster Ate That Little That Little Boy” is the latest titled of PaperMonster’s solo exhibition opening July 2nd in Philadelphia, PA at the Vincent Michael Gallery. PaperMonster will show over twenty new works of stencil art collages on canvas full of powerful portraits of women exploring themes of strength, fear, passion, and mystery.

David: Rob Swift Concert (Recap)

Yeah yeah yeah I know it's been awhile since we've updated the blog, but we're back! Both been busy with a few things, but let me stop and get to the recap on the Rob Swift concert. For those that have been on the blog recently or have talked to me personally you probably know that DJ D-Cutz and myself (DJ D-Kid) opened up for Rob Swift last Thursday, May 20th, at Club Metronome in Burlington, Vermont. We got a really good response from the crowd and rocked our set, but when Rob Swift went up I'd just like to point out he's way too good lol. He made everything look way too easy. His cuts and his beat juggling is so clean. And at the same time he's one of the coolest and laid back guys I've met. Check out the video below to see footage of Rob Swift (this isn't from the concert on Thursday):

PS: The dude is juggling with his back... come on now

D Cutz and myself can't wait to do this show tomorrow and we'll be sure to give everyone the rundown of the night tomorrow. But in the meantime, if you're in the area and 18 years of age or older come down to Club Metronome to check us out and Rob Swift doing our thing!

Below is the trailer to the grand opening for Moe's Skyline Showroom this Saturday, May 22nd, in New York City! The brand KousKousKlan will be selling their T-shirts for everyone who is in the building. I was originally planning to be going to this with Gray, but unfortunately things could not work out. Wish I could be there though and I hope it's a great night and event for everyone who's there! Be on the lookout for this brand in the future though. Great people working and backing this company. I guarantee big things for these guys. Enjoy the trailer below:

PS: Shout out to my homie Frendy Lemorin who's been working with this company!

David: Banksy Spotted in New York City

In the Financial District

This information has been out on the internet for awhile now and I meant to post it yesterday, but I got flooded with work for my AP exam I was studying for this morning. But as you know I've been trying to keep people as updated as I can with this North American tour Banksy has everyone out of their seats waiting to see what he does next. Recently he hit up New York City with a few more pieces on the walls of the Big Apple. Check the rest out below:


In Chinatown

In SoHo

Shouts to Gothamist!
PS: Unfortunately Team Robbo has already dissed two of the pieces above. Check it out here.

Gray: Throwback Tuesdays!

Below is A Tribe Called Quest's video for their song, Scenario. This track was the third single off of Tribe's second album, The Low End Theory, back in 1991. I think this video is funny because it features, then, Leaders of the New School member, Busta Rhymes looking about 10 times scrawnier than he is today lol. This is a classic for sure. Enjoy...

Gray: MURS at Higher Ground (5/15)

MURS was in Burlington this weekend, and I attended the show on Sunday. The place was empty, but what can you expect on a Sunday night. The openers Nocando and BurntMD were struggling with the lack of energy from the crowd (Nocando more than BurntMD), and were therefore pretty shitty to be honest. MURS killed it like always, and looked to be havin fun on stage. He stuck around in Burlington for a few days, and I heard of some kids kickin it with him on church street the day after the show. He is truly a down to earth guy who makes music for the love of it, and not for the money.Above is a picture of my homies VJ Wesley and Jordan Sparks gettin a pic with the man himself.

David: Sarah Kjelleren Photo of the Week!

Sarah Kjelleren

Here's Week 5 of the "Sarah Kjelleren Photo of the Week" series. This week we're switching it up a bit and showing you one of Sarah's scenic pictures. Always nice to see nature at it's finest in Vermont, and of course Sarah captures it perfectly showing off life and color as this bee draws closer to the group of flowers. Check out Sarah's summary and picture below:
"I went outside to capture a few images of the emerging summer and snapped a few of this honey bee. I took about twenty or so to try to get it in the right spot. I was following it around as it went to the different blossoms. I sent it into the local newspaper and it made the cover! Pretty exciting, I've had over ten images on the cover of the Islander and I will be having my photography shown at the Merchants bank in South Hero for the month of June, if anyone wants to check it out!"
