Yo!

I know it's insane to imagine these days (even to myself), but it was definitely out of this world when Yo! MTV Raps hit the airwaves back in the day. That's where you went to catch rap music on TV, and they did a great job with it. Rap is all over the place now, but not back then (yes, I remember the stone age).

In the process of trying to sell you clothes, Stussy put together this sweet 2 part series on the show. There's lots of notable people in this, so check it out.

Magnum Opus

The other day I came across Complex's Magnum Opus series. In a nutshell, the series spotlights classic rap songs through the people who helped create them as well as the artists themselves. I love this shit!

The first one I watched was the one above, featuring “Come Clean” by Jeru The Damaja. I loved this song when it came out, and I still love it now. I'm a huge DJ Premier fan as well, so this was right up my alley.

There's only 4 episodes right now, but I watched all of them this morning and I suggest any fan of rap music to do the same. There's Lots of cool stories and info from notable people put together in a nice package.

Check them out HERE.

Bob Burnquist is fuckin' kooked!

Ummmmmmmmmmm yeah……I don't know what to say, I can barely comprehend anything that he did in this video, but I was shaking my head in disbelief. It's worth a watch, even if you aren't into skating.

Another great video from Petrolicious, this time on the legendary Lancia Stratos. I would love to see one of the new Lancia’s in person one day…they look amazing as well!
