+ 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.

Ace Hotel (Palm Springs, CA)

As a southern California native, I have a lot of family that lives in Palm Springs and Indio. My father grew up around that way. It always had this lingering vintage vibe to me and I suppose it was because of all the seniors that lived there and its known as like golf country. Its a nostalgic place for me. I have memories of dreading the drive out there but I couldn't wait to see my cousins. Its a cultured place and when I became older it seemed real player like. Reminded me of retiring and putting your feet up. Now, I bet I would just drive out there with dark skinned indian girl, in my muscle car and cool out. Its the fuckin desert so I would just smash in the sand and smoke hookah in the pools. I'm from San Bernardino, CA which is just miles from Palm Springs. It looks similar but S.B. is a lot more industrial so it does not have the same feel as Palm Springs. So, In all of that, If I go home anytime soon, I will be staying at ACE!

Time to class it up this fall. I need a nice hard bottom in my collection. Something that I can wear with good denim and wear with a tie. This would be that shoe.

NEW AUDIO: Jay West "Paper Girls"

>OK. So I’ve just entered the room. My smell is a mix of some strange woman’s perfume and my own cologne. A boyish face that’s won many hearts, says I’m up to no good. I slink over to my sofa and open my laptop to write. I slump, then, I slouch. My posture is poor like a stoner’s, my shoulders damn near touching my ears. My shirt’s hanging on my lanky body and my pants sagging. My eyes glaze when i laugh, but no, I’m not high. Outfitted in the hopes of pushers but hardly am I that type of hustler. I do want that same type of reckless freedom, though. So what am I after and what are the means to my end? More or less, I sell real estate on dreamscapes. Listening to a song and tapping my toes. I think I have an idea...

I agree, the male shopper of today is not the man of yester-year. Even the gentleman that raised us did not spend as much time shopping as we do now and it was problem in the clutches of a female counterpart kind of coaxing them to find something new to wear. Today, we find guys that enjoy the process of shopping and finding the looks just as much as the looks themselves. Blogs like mine would hardly exist if it weren't for that state of mind. God Bless the man of today. Chivalry is on its way back, hold tight ladies. lol.

Kid Cudi Album Art


The kid from cleveland far superceded my expectation for the album artwork. As I think of it now, he actually has done so with everything he's done thus far. I didn't expect such an elaborate light show during his stage performance. That was interesting. I also did not anticipate being blown away by the Make Her Say video; which I was pleasantly awed by.

Something Epic, Y'know?

This is a real mega moment. You have to understand that Jay-Z is a man of these moments. He does this kind of thing better than anyone in rap, You know? Do remember: This is the same guy brought Michael Jackson to Summer Jam in NY. I really admire this. Had to feel real tingly all over. My mom is a huge Oprah fan so this resonates with me.
