Hip-hop and fashion have always gone hand-in-hand, and if you ask anybody who they think of when they think of dope fits and fresh kicks in the hip-hop world, Wale has to be at least 90% of those people's answers. He's well received in the sneaker world and can pretty much always be seen wearing some pair of Air Jordans or Nikes.

Curren$y x Portland Footage

Video shot and edited by Erik Soderquist

Live footage from The Portland Pilot Talk Party went down July 31st 2010. Many of the opening acts such as Young X, Nyce, and Clemm Rishad had the crowd moving all night, but Las Vegas raised emcee Logics had the crowd in a frenzy as he had the crowd in his hands. Live band included "The Deans List" played an exact live copy of the "Stars and Beyond" Produced by Baked Beats.

Curren$y the New Orleans based rapper ventures off to the Northwest for the First time as he blows the lid off of the 503 crowd with performances off his new album "Pilot Talk" which includes songs like "King Kong" and "Address". A fight erupted and all Curren$y did was kept the love and the show moving for the remainder of the night. You should have been there.
I should have been there.

Andre 3000 - I Do

Well this is pretty unexpected, except really anytime 3 Stacks drops any new material it's usually unexpected. But anyways, this track is said to be on an upcoming Lime Light Exclusives mixtape. The interesting thing about this is that a few months back a few Jeezy snippets got leaked from his email account one of which was called "I Do". Not only that but during a Ustream press conference one of the viewers asked about a future collab with Andre 3000 to which Jeezy remained quiet about.

Could this possibly be a TM103 track? We're gonna have to wait and see I guess but in the meantime bump this new 3 Stacks and enjoy your day.

Kanye West - Power (Official Video)

Kanye never disappoints.

Power director Marco Brambilla talking to Vulture:

So what exactly is the piece?
Well, it’s a video portrait of Kanye. It starts with a very tight shot introducing him that’s kind of a reinvention of a neoclassical painting. It pulls back from the shot, without any cuts, and we reveal the video canvas, populated by all these characters who are depicted in various stages of undress and decadence. The iconography comes from Roman iconography, Renaissance iconography, and it connects to the sexuality of the music as well. As we reveal the setting for it, there’s a feeling of a moment of transition for him. A fall from grace, if you will. It visualizes power, and him as the icon as power, and then at the end of the piece it challenges the power that I set up at the beginning. It’s an elliptical piece of storytelling.

How did you guys end up using that kind of imagery?
He approached me via my gallery and he wanted to do something that wasn’t a music video. He wanted a video work that would accompany the music. I said, “That’s great, because I don’t do music videos.” I wanted to give it an epic feeling. The song feels very personal, but the orchestration and the production of the track is epic and I wanted to give it something hypersensational and exaggerated.

And I understand you’ve heard that Dark Twisted Fantasy is the name of the album?
I’ve heard that’s the latest name. I would say not locked-in, and it would probably not get locked until closer to the time of the album release.
