J.Reid X Myles Harris Collab for Whealthy Hoodie Release

Wednesday, December 26th, 2018

Dreamville Signee/Rapper, Lute

Just after creative director and designer J.Reid collaborating with streetwear brand Undesirables, the Charlotte based designer is back with more heat for the streets. The designer recently teamed up with producer and photographer Myles Harris to create their Whealthy hoodie.

 

The hoodie’s symbolism illustrates that a healthy mind is indeed a rich mindset. If someone was to ask you what being wealthy means to you right now, what would your answer be? Whatever your answer is, the best investment in life isn’t necessarily something that costs outrageous or how much money you have to get what you want, it’s how much you invest into your mind and what you do to protect it. It may cost you a lot of reflection but once it’s right, it’s nothing that anyone can take away from you. This collaboration represents a positive investment for any individual who’s love is for the culture as well as for themselves.

The collaborative design is set to exclusively release tonight at the annual “LITMAS” Christmas party that is taking place at 832 Seigle Ave from 8pm to 12am. What will you do to make sure your rich in mind before anything else ?

If you’re familiar with the North Carolina music scene, you’re definitely familiar with the  Dirty Sauce Gawd himself and artist on the rise, Milan Hightower. Last year, he released his 7-track project entitled Dirty Sauce God and since then he has thrown events that have circled around the project such as the Dirty Sauce Gala during CIAA, a listening party, performed during Joseph Headen’s Durag Festival and various pop up shops, and has released numerous visuals.

Recently the attention grabbing performer dropped a visual for the last track off his debut project  called  “No More“(prod. by Sean Da Firzt). The Devin Johnson directed visual showcases the rapper going through the aftermath of faded love within a series of flashbacks of the past and cameos of the present. Peep Milan’s latest video below and let us know what you think!

Charlotte’s Well$ spits freestyle while sick, talks politics, and his new album TWILMMMN

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

Recently Charlotte MC Well$  dropped his first album The Way I’m Living Makes My Mom Nervous and it’s been causing a lot of talk from the cover of the album to the lyricism. That being said, I came up to Raleigh to catch up with the artist to get the scoop on the details of the album (like how him and Metro Boomin linked up for “Heaven’s Door”), his upcoming tour with Waka Flocka, spit’s a freestyle while actually being  sick, AND most importantly answers if his mom is aware of the album’s EXISTENCE. In continuation with the video above, catch the rest of the interview (that you didn’t catch in the video) below.

Me: So how long did it actually take you to make this project and who all did you get involved that you didn’t put on Revenge of The Booty Scratcher ?

Well$: Um it really didn’t take long or well… I guess you could say it did as far as like…last minute stuff .

Me: Now I know you got to work with Metro Boomin for ” Heaven’s Door”. How did both of you guys link up for that track ?

Well$: Honestly it just kinda happened. We had a mutual contact that ended up just connecting us.

Me: So it’s possible to say Metro Boomin trusts you?

Well$ : Oh yeah, very possible.

Me : So you’ve told me “Us vs. The World” (which is one of my favorite tracks alongside Young Man)is a track you wouldn’t mind consistently  performing for a couple years .Now in the song, you reference a lot to North Carolina. Was there ever a moment you felt like  the culture of Carolina was either not being given the proper respect or just not taken as seriously as now ?

Well$:For sure. I feel like we’re still being slept on right now.

Me: There’s one lyric that really stood out is when you said ” Used to be the nigga in the crowd now I’m the one with the crown.” Well NOW your about to be on the road with Waka Flocka & DJ Whoo Kid. How do you feel about your own come up ?

Well$: I’m just humble man. Sometimes I still cant believe it but I’m honestly just really humble right now. The tour kicks off January 14th

Me: Are there any NC artists on the scene you mess with heavily (Bankroll Bird, JK The Reaper, etc)?

Well$: I rock with a lot of NC artists, s/o to the 006 SET . I mess with a lot of the talent here though.  There’s just hella  talent in Charlotte alone that people just aren’t hip to yet feel me ?

Me: So the question I’ve really been wanting to ask: Does your mom know about the album and if she does, has she heard it ?

Well$: Nah, she still doesn’t know about it.

Me: Do you think you will ever tell her about it?

Well$: If I have to, yeah. For now, nah .

Me: Enough said, thanks a lot Well$  for being here ! The album is great and I wish you the best.

Well$ : Oh yeah no doubt , thank you !
