Drugs Crew @ New Image Art

DRUGS CREW Drugs Crew @ New Image Art

Saturday we cruised to the opening of the DRUGS CREW show at New Image Art Gallery to support our buddy who was part of the show.

NEW IMAGE ART Drugs Crew @ New Image Art

Immediately upon stepping inside, we were overwhelmed by the complete floor to ceiling multimedia installation. Layered underneath the pieces, the walls had been completely painted and pieces were even hung from the ceiling.

I took some detail shots of the pieces, but this is really a show you have to check out in person.

I’m in Japan with my brother, Nick from Crap/N.Potash Jewelry, exploring our roots and getting inspired. Today we checked out the 20th anniversary Mooneyes Carshow in Yokohama. This is a little preview of the most glorious collection of gasoline fueled speed machines ever assembled under one roof.

Westcoast 2.0

kendrick lamar musicbox tde hiii power Westcoast 2.0
I got to cruise to the Kendrick Lamar/DJ Green Latern show at the Music Box on Friday. I had heard the hype about Kendrick – endorsements from Dre and Snoop as the torchbearer of Westcoast Hip Hop etc. – and listened to a few mixtapes and tracks, but seeing it in person, I’m now a believer. Kendrick’s from Compton and his music is part classic West Coast gangsta rap, but with a lot of other influences and a flow that emerges as uniquely his own.
schoolboy q musicbox Westcoast 2.0
Fellow Compton/TDE artist Schoolboy Q, was on right before Kendrick and put on a great show as well. We were stoked to see him come on stage wearing a REMINGTON snapback – I’ve never seen the winter pin-up girls looking so hard.
DJ Greenlantern music box Westcoast 2.0
Going into the show I was excited to see the legendary evil genius DJ Green Lantern do a set. I’ve been listening to his mixtapes forever so it was great to meet him and I was pumped he was feeling our new hats.

After the show the good doctor, DRE!!!! came backstage to introduce the fam to Kendrick, I was going to ask him about Detox, but had second thoughts when his security locked down the hall.
