Haze x G-Shock – 30th Anniversary in NYC

Eric Haze truly inspires me so much.  A visionary, a revolutionary, and most importantly, an incredible artist.  Haze was one of the originators, who took his love for graffiti and hip-hop culture and brought it into the concept of skate, surf, and consumer culture.  His style is something I admire and try to emulate every day; understated simplicity in the more artistic way.  Arrows and stars, clean handwriting, pure creativity.

G-Shock and prolific artist Haze will present a major exhibition and release event in downtown Manhattan this Friday. With support of Casio, the artist organized a 25 year retrospective of the HAZE brand, which includes a variety of product collaborations with various brands along the way. The opening is set to feature the launch of the 4th signature “HAZE x G-Shock” model, which will be the first release of the brand’s 30th anniversary collection. The exhibition is set to include framed silkscreens, embroideries, baseball caps, clothing, footwear, furniture, toys, and more. The opening will be held this Friday night at SOLO on 40 Broad Street in New York City, and features this video produced by Haze and Showcobra going through 25 years of archives in preparation for the show.

True Artistry. Smooth.

Documenting the rise of hip-hop and featuring interviews from the likes of Kanye West, Eminem, Dr. Dre, Nas, KRS-One, Snoop Dogg and more, the Ice-T-directed Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap made its debut earlier this summer.

Levi Maestro : STRO | Spot 1

Once again, Levi Maestro is on the SmoothNYC website.  This time it is with his new brand in which he calls, “STRO.”  This is the first commercial video shot by filmmaker Zach McTee, who always does a great job with his visuals.  Levi Maestro’s message is all about being yourself and doing what you genuinely love and giving it your.  He instills this message in STRO through the concept, “Make What You Love.”  STRO currently consists of snapbacks, tees, skate decks, with a lot more to come.  Once again, shouts to Levi and the launch of this new brand.

Lupe Fiasco – Around My Way

So the website has been under construction for the last week as we’ve been redirecting to a new location; http://www.smoothnyc.com.  That being said, I’m back to give you what you come here to see.  Lupe Fiasco is finally back.  “Around My Way” is his latest single off his up and coming album, “Food & Liquor 2,” hitting stores on September 25.  Lupe is honestly one of the best and most meaningful lyricists in the hip-hop game currently.  I love the message he gets across with this song, and just when I start to think he is being a hypocrite driving the Lamborghini, he returns it to the exotic car rental. That’s Lupe for you; Genius.  Listen to the lyrics, and enjoy the amazing visuals provided in this music video and you’ll be sure to want Lupe’s new album coming in late September.  FnF Up!
