+ There's a style to the music.
+ There's a fashion to the words.

+ There's a seduction in the sound of Jay West, but what makes it provocative is all within the details.

+ The Jay West Perspective is romantic. The Jay West Aesthetic is tailored. The Jay West agenda is to INSPIRE. “Southern California’s Newest Buzzworthy Artist” is preparing a follow-up to the cult classic mixtape, “Drugs+Candy”. The table is set.

The Hermes Scarf.

Copped the Watch The Throne LP this week and the artwork reminded me of an Hermes scarf.

"There are things about organized religion which I resent. Christ is revered as the Prince of Peace, but more blood has been shed in His name than any other figure in history. You show me one step forward in the name of religion and I'll show you a hundred retrogressions. Remember, they were men of God who destroyed the educational treasures at Alexandria, who perpetrated the Inquisition in Spain, who burned the witches at Salem. Over 25,000 organized religions flourish on this planet, but the followers of each think all the others are miserably misguided and probably evil as well."

FRANK SINATRA, Playboy Magazine, Feb. 1962

"Trouble On My Mind"

This feels so nostalgic. Pusha's last verse describes the synergy between the two and it reminded me of the kind of on-screen chemistry that Busta and Ol' Dirty had in the Woo Haa remix video.

This is just mean, man.


Get your tix.

Gentlemen, The Esquire Cover

Esquire Magazine is T H E men's magazine. While electronic publications like blogsites and social media have been the virtual undertaker of the written word, Esquire has it 78 year-old feet planted firmly on the block, ten toes down. These are just a few covers I love.
