kkk-0082i took all these pictures a while ago when we were thinking about what makes a brand a brand. these are pics from the january or dember XXL magazine which is a magazine my kinfolk at skinnyboughtem.blogspot.com are puttingout of business. but this magazine is the freshmen issue or the issue that shows all the up and comming rap artists and first and foreost this list isnt complete tere are al lot of other up and comers. second of all ace hood is in this isue and dont get me wrong the dude ace hood can rap but his album already came out and it flopped. third all these rappers are pretty much hipster suburban rappers athat all have topicless storyless raps that are heavy on concepts and fashion driven. its art but it isnt at the same time.

 regardless of whos on what what me and the oli fam was talking about is why is everyone heavily bbc’d  and ice creamed out. what maked that brand stand out to street wea culture and more importantly hip hip culture. i love bbc and ice cream. skater inspireddesigneds rocked by mostly white washed black dude or real hustlin cats. all their shit goes for ridiculous price. but the qualtiy and designs are on point. but why cant i have a bbc or ice cream. we needto shut thitdoen like these cats. i am kinda goin off tangts and i keep introducing prenant passages so once i start writing this i oprobably wil never stop writing about this. i just wanted to bring you into the mind tahat is creating and  the dfferent motivations/ inspirations that add color to my life. kkk-0161

kkk-0111went to the brooklyn cicus store in the city. i actually went about amnth ago and forgot i had these pictures i think i erased some because i know i had more than these. these pics are only of the outside but i know i took a lot more both inside and out. i can remember because this white black dude looked all but hurt and i asked hima and he seemed reluctant to say yes so i decided not to take them i said i woudl blow his shit up o n my site but he was kind of a fag so this is all you got. i like brooklyn cicus kinda got a cut and sewn feel. kinda liek a a mark eccko and an ed hardy. i dont wear either brands but since their in the city imma rep em hard. im always tryna circulate new money in the streetwear/urbanwear market. more money in the market more money for us. so keep doin your thug thizzle brooklyn circuspicture-0301

kkk-0091this is a little moped by puch i seen in the city the other day. i really like these but i think id only have em in sf or new york or some european city . and i think this thing would be hardbody except im getting kinda old and hoes aint probably feelin a dude on a little oped type thin. but its still a cool little toy to have. realy vintage looking and it woudld probably be a good investment. seein is gas is going back up

kkk-0014this is one of the working logos were seeing about getting the work is on point i just dont think  we should do the nerd swag glases. were tryna get the monopoly dude possibly wearing some kind of wayfayer style glasses or something. it looks good so far we just gotta work out our final ideas and get them into action. so far were making some good progress and meeting with a lot of good reps and other industry people the line should be off and running in no time
