+ 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.

+ Say Grace.

The Future of Fashion

Diesel Fashion Show

Take a look at this catwalk showing which features real models and holographic models!

Straight baniddles!


As the sun rotates and day grows…

The easiest thing to say is that its difficult to compromise your dreams.
The hope of what I wanted to bring to the city of Atlanta through Fly Society differed from the wishes of my team. I am committed to a different set of ideals than those I once broke bread with. Consciously, I made a decision to depart from the business relationship, in order to maintain friendship.

Sour-faced indeed but time can cleanse this over. So with all that said, I rolls dolo from state to state now. This is no speech of some rebellion. There is no beef. Be clear. I am one of the 6 co-founders of Fly Society Enterprises but now its time for Jay West. I just want to do me. I was the creative director for that company but my creativity has now taken me in a new direction. Makes sense to me. We just had creative differences.

I still got love.

as reads headlines on MTV.com

I read a headline today that struck me.
It read "Donda West's Autopsy Reportedly Inconclusive
Details won't be made available for six to eight weeks; Kanye's mother may have ignored doctor's advice regarding surgery.

-just for the record, I don't think its our business either way. the privacy she deserves has been encroached by the fame Ye attained. its unfair but its certainly not his fault. he is the celebrity we all know but why are they posting news about her death daily. that's family business, but the media is making it good business. there has to be a barrier between concerned fan and intrusive consumer. its on us to draw the line at this point because the news is just gonna report it, however, we vote with our eyes and ears by tuning to it.

i actually know some of kanye's family and i can assure you that they are in tune with what's going on with Ms. Donda West in her passing and following up with the doctors. we don't need mtv filling us in on details. get back to the MUSIC.
she was not a musician. allow her to rest in peace. i just wonder how kanye feels about the news discussing the particulars of her death with the world.

prayers for him and the family.

The Rock is in the building

“Music kind of sucks. Nobody’s into being a musician. Everybody’s getting their mogul on. You’ve been so infiltrated by this corporate mentality that all the time you’d spend getting great songs together, you’re busy doing nine other things that have nothing to do with art. You know how shitty Stevie Wonder’s songs would have been if he had to run a fuckin’ clothing company and a cologne line?… Rap sucks, for the most part. Not all rap, but as an art form it’s just not at its best moment. Sammy the Bull would have made a shitty album. And I don’t really have a desire to hear Warren Buffett’s album - or the new CD by Paul Allen. That’s what everybody’s aspiring to be.”

-quoted from Chris Rock in Rolling Stone Magazine

my environment inspires me.
i guess i'm dying in an environment that seems so uninspiring.
rap is dry. i a lot of cases
so to whet the appetite and quench my thirst for some hotter music i've been seeking out other artists. sounds that just aren't the norm in today's rap music. i've come across Kenna. His most recent LP "make sure they see my face" is a colorful ride through dim times. the music could not have come at a better time for me. I've also been listening to a little A Race of Angels. Its hard to say what kind of music this is. Its surrounded in so much but so little. thank god for the artistry of these guys as well as Feist, Mathieu Boogaerts and Miguel for keeping in the pocketing. i feel underwater but this lets me breathe.

How to Win Me! Girls That Like Girls

not on some Dro my-girl-got-a-girlfriend stuff...
that's cool but really.

My comrades, I have a question. How often have you heard a chick say, “I don’t really get along to well with women”? It’s a sad and harsh reality that some women are just catty. Initially, to hear one woman say she doesn’t get along well with girls sounded unique and like it would compliment my friendships. She could be one of the guys. I got older and began to hear more women say this. It always went hand in hand with some bad experiences of a chick being to clingy to me or way too friendly with her male “friends”. Its now like an ugly cliché that gets used amongst bitter single women. Like other women are the cause for their dating woes. Its not so easy on the ears anymore because it translates like “I’m insecure”, “I’m a hater” or “I’m a hoe”, none of which are phrases that pay in the game of ‘How to Win Me!’

I love being in the midst of estrogen when it says things like, “I love your hair” to a complete stranger. Compliments on another women’s shape or talk about how much she love’s ALICIA KEYS will get you a W (W as in West). It just makes you look secure in your space. Like you know yourself. Having female friends is hot cuz it lets me know that when I am away you ain’t home pissed at me and that you still have a life all your own. Its keeps me from having to be placed into real feminine bonding (watching Top Model or Project Runway) cuz you can sit on the phone or have your girl over to do that stuff. I may watch it with you as a nicety but it should not be The Routine! Go get your nails done with them and hit a few stores with them. Get along with the girls, absence makes the heart grow fonder. Trust me.

damn darlene

Vinyl Pulse got Hoes.

I don't even have a collection of toys like this.
i don't wanna seem like a bandwagon dick rider either but the ghostface joint got me.
it was just hot but then i met DARLENE.
remember her, served you that mean glass of Ice-T?
yeah. recognize.

are you Bi? . . . . . . . . (Coastal)

i don't know where this was hiding but its "HUSTLERS" from

but peep it

Wu-Tang is for the Kids

For the kids indeed.

since cloning isn't legal yet, 4Cast Limited has manufactured a replica of the Wally Champ himself. Now presenting the Ghostface Doll. The 9 inch figure rocks a Ghostdini Robe and an adjustable yankee cap. The jewelry is stupid. The eagle on the wrist and the dinner plate sized (proportionately) medallion are 14-karat gold. The Eagle has a diamond in it! The site says it comes "enclosed in a box that has remnants of fine Louis XIII cognac". Add all of those features to the fact that it talks. It comes with sayings that Ghost recorded himself. The favorite is "Yo b---h, I f---ed your friend, ya stank ho."

Bring the Barbies out!

only 1000 of these in the world.
it comes with a mixtape; 36 Deadly Darts.
and its $499.99

be sure to have a long talk with the kids before bringing this in the house.

reserved for the bosses

Watch this before you leave.
mad cameos (word to "word up")


"the cool" is coming. i don't mean a cold front i mean the sophomore release by back pack prodigy, Lupe Fiasco. The Cool promises to be a follow up the song on his first LP by the same name. It picks up where that story left off and gets deeper. Lupe says the LP is grim but will not be "too" concept heavy. Just right. hopefully it won't come out sounding like a fantasy flick. i dig Lupe. A LOT and here is the first single (dumb it down was just a teaser) "SUPER STAR". Video directed by "Believe the..." Hype Williams. Its wonder!

"the cool" chase it to the dec. 18 release date.

the art of the gangster

VH1.com Blog

its nice to hear good jigga rap.
my dude heard the LP long before i had and he told me "they gone try to do everything they can to say it ain't hot". whether you like Jay-Z or not, he's nice period. its like saying Kobe can't play, its just not true!

radio stations love to bring up lil wayne any time jay is brought up but weezy does not have a classic LP, jay at least has two and listen to American Gangster. It may be 3.

how small is the world?

I saw this video maybe a year ago...
I thought the song was dope, plus the neptunes are some of my favorite producers. It was just hot to see this whole thing taking place. the creative energy was kinda nice to watch. the little chick in the video is just chilling.

now like two months ago, i met her. she came to one of my parties. talk about partaking. she's a friend of mine now. we ain't like rolling around the blocks together but damn its cool to meet someone like her. the world just shrank like 1000 miles. i thought this was somewhere in brazil. lol

she's Natasha Ramos.
she's gonna kill.

commercial rap

...this is the good kind...

does anyone else remember waking up to seeing this on saturday mornings

i would watch joe clair or big lez on the rap city countdown and this commercial was like my favorite. can't really think of a commercial that compares to this today. you know, as far as one with emcees and a product i like. Nike used Juelz Santana for some commercial. so like i said...i can't really thing of a commercial that compares to this today.

How to Win Me! Styling on you

You guessed it clowns! Its another How to Win Me!
I got this weird little phrase i say on the low. its in a verse as well. "Tastemakers taste better"
I adore a fashionable woman but the edge on that is one that is so unique in her look.
Big up to people like Crystal Meth and Muffy for being bold in their look but not just for the sake of being different. Actually pulling off something innovative. hot ish ladies. you've won yourself a spot on this superficial list of compliments! lol

im a sucker for it

so sex sells.
no news flash but this is a pretty hot picture.and apparently there is an equally hot picture with the frangrance mushed between a pair of boobs.
i can't believe i actually typed the word "boob"
that sounds like an epithet for a "retarded" kid.

boy, am i a loser.

How to Win Me! complex simplicity

Another How to Win Me! is pretty simple and i think it is a reasonable a request. Women all over should fix their eyes on this goal and begin making advances toward it.

Be Alicia Keys!

Alicia has a wonderful balance of sex and class. Hood and Hollywood. The scales tilt in the favor of the man who macked her. Justice is served. I've not seen her out looking messy at award shows. She's not always in the news and she can play the shit out of a piano. Got my vote. Let's start cloning!

OKAY now, if you can't seem to accomplish the task of getting god to remake you physically as alicia keys and getting the devil to swap your soul for hers for me then (i think you're giving up too easily) at least do this: BE Complex! That's what i think she has that I like. Hit a U-Turn, ma I dropping you back off if you talking like "what you see is what you get". I like a layered woman. Let me discover you from one date to the next. We can really grow like that, I'm a puzzle-case my damn self. it keeps it fresh and interesting.

make it last forever...
