+ 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.

Hostile Gospel

A book you should check out. TOO BLACK FOR B.E.T.

Is it poetry? Is it artwork? Is it collected essays?

Fuck all that...

just check it out.

Here it is! Episodes I and II of Jayson Scott Musson of Plastic Little’s Too Black for B.E.T. finally collected into a single volume. 36 black and white posters that teem with art magic! It’s as if Musson made a pact with Satan, and Satan, taking a liking to Mr. Musson, gave the artist dark powers which no mortal should possess. Gasp in terror as you descend into a world of perversion, dereliction, depression, apathy of the highest order, chemical addiction, Harry Potter, racism, sexism, whatever it is when you hate the shit out of children, shoegaze music, and the general moral relativism Mr. Musson has used throughout his life to justify acting however the fuck he wants to act because he’s a grown ass man. Somehow art is born out of this combination of self-obsession and an ego so great that it borders on the realm of Tolkien-esque fantasy. MORE


California's top court overturns gay marriage ban

Very emotional time for Californians of all sorts, I'm sure, but perhaps more so for those who have been in favor of Same Sex Marriages. The ban was overturned and there were shouts and tears abounding the surroundings.


SAN FRANCISCO - In a monumental victory for the gay rights movement, the California Supreme Court overturned a voter-approved ban on gay marriage Thursday in a ruling that would allow same-sex couples in the nation's biggest state to tie the knot... MORE

Rent/Buy This Movie

A what?
An intellectual action flick. A Guy Ritchie joint. Its a like layer cake made of razor blades (that sounded so extra). Its whirlwind of twists in the plot of Fast talking gangsters and despite the 'coming soon' on the above poster its available today at select Blockbuster locations. I watched for myself on Tuesday and here I am telling y'all to go see it. So it made me a believer. Ritchie does well at making this stylish. Hell, he's Madonna's hubby right. If you're a movie buff, he also directed SNATCH. I think Ritchie is probably responsible for all Jason Statham's best roles. This is no different. Andre "3 Stacks" Benjamin does well and Ray Liotta gets a little emotional. The solarium scene reminded me of a hype williams vid.

peep the trailer.

Steady Mobbin'

My homegirl put me on to this other ill post on the Married to the Mob Blog.
I think this is stealing at this point but I think you guys should go check it out.

Its a long list of WHY's that need answers. I remember when Jada did that song back in like 04 but its nowhere near as relevant as the questions on this list...

here is a dose and after this you're on your own and I expect you to go check out their blog...

52.) Why is it that some people try way too hard to be different?

53.) Why is
it that some men say “ Let’s Chill”...when in all actuality the want to have

54.) Why is it that the songs we hate the most...we
already know the lyrics?

55.) Why is it that prostitution is illegal in NYC &
legal in Las Vegas?

56.) Why is it that men want women to swallow & swear
that their ejaculate is good for the skin? Is this a known clinical proven fact?
And if so...why don’t they put in on their own skin?

57.) Why is it that
1-Minute Rice takes 15-Minutes to cook?

58.) Why is it that hoodrats use abortion
as a means of contraceptive?

59.) Why do men believe that “pulling-out” won’t
lead to pregnancy?

60.) Why is it that the most evil people attend

61.) Why is it that when waiting for the train people in the subway
hang themselves over the tracks....as though the train will come any faster?

62.) Why is it that men talk more shit then women do?

63.) Why is it that men wax
their eye brows?

can anyone say "SPLASH" after that last one. HAHAHA

Big Mama Thang

Married to the Mob never ceases to amaze me.
One of the few street-wear brands that feels like they'll kick your teeth in and then light your cigarette. AHHHHH


they have been gracious enough to supply us slow-poke gift-getters a list of ideas. Similar to what I did for valentines, you ingrates!

tell your mama i sent you!

D. Dot Tested, Diddy Approved

many a blog has been buzzing about the Notorious BIG Biopic set to release in January and there is always question of how accurate the depictions will be of the artists portrayed...but MTV caught up with Puff to see how he sized things up. Combs has always appeared to be a tough critic...check out his response to Derek Luke's (Antoine Fisher, Biker Boys) portrayal of him in the film

Its a Wrap - Head Wrap

I arrived early at the Glow in the Dark Concert here in ATLANTA, GA and found an over indulgence in scarf culture. Louis, Fendi, Dolce, what have you. I guess I was under the impression that people were gonna put the scarves away when the weather warmed up. Its a toasty 87 degrees down here, what are you shielding your neck from. My grandma wouldn't bust the shawl in this temp. I'm gonna be clear and say this...scarves are not bandanas, scarves are not hoodies. This is what gully is? Is this Killa?

No homo, huh? I beg to differ...
you just said that thing on your head is a 'Splash'...

Ryan Leslie - The Next.

Rarely should I use this blog as a platform to make predictions.
I'll use my powers for good rather than evil statements of i-told-u-so...
but for this occassion, I'm tapping my toes thinking that I'm on to something

I think Ryan Leslie is gonna blow. I'm under the impression that this guy is talented.
If he looks familiar he's, the man behind Next Selection the imprint pushing Cassie along with Bad Boy. Not really the name-dropper but he's kinda the protege of Diddy and Tommy Mottola (pardon any misspellings)

He rocked Spring Bling recently, his first single, "Diamond Girl" has been remixed like nasty kool-aid, and the second single is set to be more infectious. Aptly titled "Addiction" featuring Cassie. Check him out >>> Ryan Leslie If i happen to be wrong, he at least has a fresh looking

Hats Off

If you are a hat enthusiast and the you are partial to Brooklyn in the Summertime, then i'm sure you'll approve of Still Life's 08 look. Coney Island Styling on em.

It brings to mind the 99 Spike Lee joint Summer of Sam with ducking the shots and all. Have a look-see. You can smell the hot dogs and hear the 12year olds cursing out grown women.

Peep it>>> Still Life : SPRING 2008

do not pass GO

Go straight to jail.
Nothing else says 'guilty' like asking for a delay for the umpteenth time in your widely publicized child porn case. R. Kelly has done just that. Some chick pops up and says she did the triangle bounce with Kells and the young chick and this guy pleads for time. A little trivia for the readers; Does anyone remember the title of the Singer Rob's last album? You've got it! It was DOUBLE UP! I know we as a people should not say things like this, especially following the sean bell trial and tribulation because 911 is more of joke than Flav is today... but I really think R. should go to prison. I don't mean like Paris Hilton, Band Camp Prison...I mean like OZ. I suppose my feelings have been tampered with following my viewing of the film Hard Candy. I saw it this morning for the first time. I hop on MTV.com and I saw the headline about Robert. "R. Kelly Asks For Yet Another Delay In Child-Pornography Trial, Due To Publicity Over Threesome Allegations" . So I figure, Jail or I can make a call to Ellen Page. You choose.
