As I continue on my old New York Ish... I am old enough to remember my pops, mom, and brother always making sure not to leave anything of value in plain sight no matter were you park your car. I still follow these rules and I am still very cautious, my girl always laughs at me and calls me ghetto but this hasn't happened to me, so I will continue to be New York Minded no matter what you think Gloria. This car has Maryland plates but I am guessing they are not from Bmore because they would know better. Got the pics and the story from LiQcity.
I recently watched a few clips of the upcoming GZA Wu-tang documentary which tossed me into a old, hood, rugged, grimy hip hop video search. Meth's leather jacket and braids and the tagged up bus, a dirty basement somewhere in Shaolin Island, Park hill probably, his moon contact lens. Man these videos bring back memories I was real young but my older brother had them playing all day he would even record them on VHS.
It just bugs me out how everything changes. The way the city looks, the wardrobe, the way the videos are shot etc...

Project 10_Teaser from The Brooklyn Circus on Vimeo.
Like I always mention I love the growth of a brand, the backstory, the step by step journey. Due to the location of The BKc in a city within a city I have had the pleasure to get a glimpse at their 100 year plan. Not just because I know them (everyone knows them) but because they successfully share all their ups and downs and involve their public. Congrats!! to all the gentleman and Kohey I hope all is well in Japan.
ELI MORGAN GESSNER X KARMALOOPTV X SKEETV from KarmaloopTV on Vimeo.
Check his t-shirt out in the old picture of him with a blackbook in hand, it's an old Stretch Armstrong & Bobbito show T, so crazy how long they had that show on for and how deep Bobbito's roots are in NYC. Eli worked on his own film called EXCITE LOVES VITA, STARRING Rosario Dawson but I can't find it anywhere, if I ever get it I will share. His story is great and I am waiting for a similar storm to come by NYC hopefully soon.

Shyne Trailer #1 from Team Satten on Vimeo.
SHYNE is a long way from Brooklyn and from Diddy, so let's see what comes from this. The trailer definitely caught my attention it is done so well. Shyne just made getting deported look kinda dope cruising around on a cruiser, Red wings, and a military long sleeve on even when it seems 100% out there, so so BROOKLYN regardless.
