Hues to Blame ? Max Wonders

Monday, September 26th, 2016

Recently 19 year-old Chicago MC Max Wonders dropped his  album Hues To Blame  that just about  anyone who is caught in the awk stage of having to “Grow Up”  looking for apartments  and wanting to be a “Kid Again” can relate to. I stumbled upon the artist this past summer through his single “Malibu” that was just on a random playlist I came across on Sound Cloud. After hearing the single,  I did some research and found out that there was a project he was dropping so of course I kept my eye on it and honestly.. it does not  disappoint. The album includes 15 tracks with features from Royce da 5’9, Narco McKinnis, Daniel Hex, and Kembe X . The album gives a raw and colorful depiction of youth nostalgia. Whether it’s the struggle of figuring out love, feeling alone, conflicts or intensities in life (trust, religion, passion,  etc) reminiscing on the good and the bad of life, or just any pivotal space while growing up, Wonders takes us through it to recapture  those feelings.  Highlights  of the album would have to be “Go Home” , “Fantasy” , “Rocket Ship”, “Kid Again”, “Hotel Paradise”, and “Stay” just because they’re that good and..on repeat. To keep it hot and simple, if you’ve ever uttered the words “growing up sucks” or “I love you”, this is probably the album for you right now… in fact, it Is the album for you. Take a trip below.

Black Beatles: EB Edition

Monday, September 12th, 2016

Yes you guessed right, this week’s post is dedicated to the single “Black Beatles” (off Sremmlife  2 duh get hip). Is there a reason behind it? well because everyone should feel dope when they step out… better yet, feel like a rockstar.  While out in the city, my goal is to usually find those who stand out or carry their own steez with confidence. Whether your rocking Gucci frames or see through boots, your fit is what YOU make it to be.

  1. Best way to style a simple concert t-shirt is a bleach job right ? You can find a Iron Maiden shirt , hip hop tees, or dope concert tee at Zumiez, Hot Topic , or the  cheapest/most convenient place which is your local thrift! As for the  exclusive on the boots,  head over to our shoe network for details.
  2. VINTAGE 90s YSL YVES SAINT LAURENT POLO’D down w/ the GUCCI FRAMES. I mean come on….what is there left to say except the polo is sort of a hard find so try to aim for retail outlets who sell vintage like Etsy or Pucker Clolthing . The Gucci frames on the other hand can be found at vintage frames or the cheaper route, Ebay , or a similar prototype of the Gucci’s at Glasses USA.
  3. Nellz is stunting in her orange choker  bodysuit (wide selection of these at boohoo and forever 21)and distressed boyfriend jeans (which you can either DIY or get for $18 at Romwe, Pacsun, Forever 21, the list goes on) and lace-up heels from Go Jane !
  4. For this fourth look, the highlight is clearly the Chocolate Jer & MJ T shirt and unfortunately (after 15 minutes of searching )its sold out everywhere ..except for the foreign website i attached link to the name above:) Your welcome.
  5. Drums please…….LAST BUT NOT LEAST……cropped cami (which you can find a good variety at Love Culture and Forever 21), black linen shorts, and faux suede lace up gladiator heels at Lolli Couture for only $10!! or the extended version of these at Cici Hot.
