Video: Ski Beatz Interviews Wiz Khalifa


Ski Beatz and Wiz shoot the shit in K West Hotel in London for SoulCultureTV. Possible collaboration in the works?

“It’s like Jay-Z — When I first met Jigga then the whole wave started happening, the next thing you know he’s ‘Jay-Z.’ Now I’m looking at this kid like ‘Ok, it’s Wiz,’ but now it’s Wiz Khalifa,” Ski Beatz reflects, going on to quiz Wiz about how he feels he has grown musically across his three albums to date, dealing with internet hate/criticism, whether his tree-filled lyrics encourage his listeners to smoke weed and what impact his need to “re-create and stay brand new’ has on his fanbase.

Video: Maestro Knows – Special Edition (Tim “LIVEWIRE” Shieff)

This episode right here has been in the works for a LONG time. Last week, completely unplanned I got to shoot Tim and his friend Jan while in London. Usually when I compile my episodes I’ll start cutting sequences together to a song and that’ll be that, done deal. Well, with this piece it went a little different. I cut selects and laid a song just for reference and it was so perfect that I didn’t imagine I would replace it until I played this Public Enemy over it. I take pride a lot of times in combining things that rarely would come together in another medium. When I watch this and listen to the lyrics it actually makes perfect sense and surprisingly brought tears to my eyes a few times. This lifestyle, these videos, the stories that I tell….sometimes the thought of it becomes mundane but the fight never does. Through being hassled, sterotyped, misunderstood, or whatever the struggle may be, the message remains loud, we are continuing to love the way we live and to live the way we love. There’s a lot of time, energy, and heart put into something that becomes great.

Would You Work Here?

Skype’s Modern Palo Alto Office design

Welcome to Skype’s Palo Alto office. Pretty dope isn’t it? Is Skype’s office better than Google’s in the UK though?

Skype recently hired architecture and interior design firm Blitz to renovate their current 54,000 sq ft space in Palo Alto. Their primary goal was to create a world-class office that would differentiate themselves from their Bay Area competitors. Ultimately, they want to recruit the best talent in the field.

The new space reflects Skype’s spirit of innovation in a highly functional yet creative workplace designed to encourage interaction and spontaneity. Specific acoustic requirements were made in order to support the audio and video capabilities of their 250 employees. The project is seeking LEED Silver certification.

Rare Louis Vuitton Shoe Trunk for $68,500!

Every time I put a pair of shoes in this they should be automatically cleaned, and it better come with a prostitute resembling Halle Berry. $68,500! You got to be shitting me, more like ‘diarrheaing’ me.

A rare and highly sought-after piece of vintage Louis Vuitton luggage, the renowned “Malle Chaussures” shoe trunk from the 1920s, is being offered for sale by London’s Pullman Gallery for $68,500 in the wake of a recently published landmark work on Vuitton trunks.

The trunk embodies the glamour and sophistication of a more elegant era, when such items were de rigeur for wealthy travelers. Featuring the iconic LV monogram on its canvas-upholstered frame, the trunk is fully outfitted to facilitate the most meticulous fashion plate. It contains compartments for 30 pairs of shoes in individual shoe boxes with ancillary drawers and trays for a shoe-cleaning kit.

Each of the padded drawers features a leather pull tab and nameplate. At the time Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar declared the “Malle Chaussures” to be the ultimate symbol of Parisian chic and a requisite travel accessory of every truly stylish woman.

Google’s London Space Makes You Envious


This space puts all work spaces to absolute shame. All offices need to take heed to this.

Freshness says it best:

With free food, open office layout, and non-pretentious appointments, search engine giant Google has long been on the list of “Best Places To Work”. Now add another attractions to the long list – Brighton Beach, at least in its new London Headquarter location near Buckingham Palace. In designing the new 40,000 square-foot space, architect Scott Brownrigg went for something that will excite people when they arrive at work. Bright colors and lights accentuate the work environment while mini beach house replicas double as conference room and other amenities. In place of beach sand, Brownrigg cleverly applied birch colored carpeting that gives very similar appearance. On another side, the cafeteria takes on the look of a restaurant and serves a mix of Asian Fusion and Sushi. In addition, there is an onsite gym/shower, massage and spa treatment section, all as added incentives for Google staffers to come to work. Afterall, a happy employee is an efficient employee. We only wish more employers would do the same…
