Never Say Die

All of the hype over high-end fashion and designers may be a long lasting trend that has sprung up as of late, but Complex Magazine (as usual) has it right with this list of reasons why streetwear is still alive.  This list hold near and dear to my heart because streetwear and what Smooth represents is roots and loyalty.  Streetwear is more than just t-shirts and snapbacks; these pieces hold messages and stories that sometimes only the designers can truly see.  Nevertheless, I’ll leave you guys with one final though.  STREETWEAR WILL NEVER, EVER DIE.

Believe that. & Check The List HERE.

G.O.O.D. Music Covers Complex Magazine

This team is too serious, and this is an amazing display of that.  The quality of this team by far surpasses that of every other team in the hip-hop game.  Be sure to pick up a copy of this issue of Complex coming in August/September.  Read the whole G.O.O.D. Music cover story here.

JANSPORT X STAPLE DESIGN

Growing up, Jansport was the brand on every kid’s back.  Now that we are older, fashion is a staple in a lot of our lives. No pun intended.  Out long-time nostalgic friends at Jansport have teamed up with Jeff Staple and the people at Reed Space on this collaboration design as a part of their limited edition “Jansport Right Packs,” in which Jansport has teamed up with 21 different lifestyle boutiques around the world.  This bookbag really takes me back to childhood, but with a grown-up stylish twist to it.  Leave it to Jeff Staple to be clever and creative enough to describe today’s youth as, “Highly Edumacted.”

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.

Back Like We Never Left

Hey everyone, I just wanted to make it a priority to apologize to everyone for that short hiatus.  A couple of things on the website were under construction that took a few weeks to figure out.  But we have officially taken that damn dash out of our website name and have redirected ourselves to WWW.SMOOTHNYC.COM so make sure you continue to follow the blog daily.  Also, for any inquiries email us at info@smoothnyc.com. Keep updated here to know what we may be releasing next.  Thanks for sticking with us during this break.

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!
