Christian Louboutin’s Marketing Team Is Better Than Yours

Peter Lippmann’s version of Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot’s Portrait of a Girl (1857-58) for Christian Louboutin.

The people at Christian Louboutin have hired photographer Peter Lippmann for a series of seven portraits. Each portrait was recreated from a classic and feature Louboutin shoes, and one handbag. Whoever the creative director is over there is brilliant!

Video: Will J. Cole’s Career End Before It Even Started?


I love, love, love Hip Hop Report Lounge’s discourse about music. In this episode they discuss J. Cole’s music and how much he has fallen off. I can’t say I disagree. Half the time I see his music posted I listen to the first 30 seconds then turn it off. Don’t get me wrong, I support J. Cole and want him to do well, but it seems that his heart isn’t all the way it in. Plus, these last few songs all sound the same. Same thing with Drake’s last 2 songs.

I thought they were bringing light-skinned back??

Fool’s Gold Opening Reception TODAY

If you know of Fool’s Gold then I shouldn’t have to say much about this store opening/reception. For those that don’t know read this…

Over the past four years, Fool’s Gold has established itself as a new kind of independent record company, one just as comfortable introducing once-unknown artists like Duck Sauce, Kid Cudi and Kid Sister to the world, as throwing sold-out parties where Kanye West and Drake just happen to stop by and hang out, or splashing their irreverent, eye-popping visual attitude across everything from vinyl sleeves to rubber ducks. Through the catalog of work and the family of artists they’ve curated, Fool’s Gold has become a name you can trust for new and interesting work in every context.

Their latest endeavor to proudly sport the gold bar logo is 536 Metropolitan, a top-to-bottom transformation of Fool’s Gold’s storefront office in Williamsburg, Brooklyn into a French bistro-inspired retail experience, featuring a wooden bar where the taps have been replaced by fully-stocked record crates, custom wallpaper and art prints, and an ever-changing selection of exclusive new merchandise alongside rare finds from the FG archives. Equal parts vinyl mecca, gallery space and clothing boutique, 536 Metropolitan launches as an instant must-visit for music fans of all kinds.

Sorry, I didn’t have time or patience to write all this in my own words. Just head over to Williamsburg, it’ll be a great time with good music and people.

Cowboy Boots Are Back??

Everything was cool until I saw those cowboy boots. Somehow this dude managed to pull it off. This line has a refined flower-child look, which I feel is kinda dope. Check out the collection from Saint Augustine Academy – Spring 2012.
