APPLEBUM. Need I say more! This Hip Hop Inspired Japanese clothing and accessory line is taking the urban culture to a whole new level in its respect and homage to Street Life. Taking a scroll through the Applebum collection is like taking a scroll through the history and highlights of the rap game and some of its most respected legends. Along with hip hop, Applebum likes to highlight the beauty and art of the “ghetto” in their print’s, shining light on all projects from Compton to Japan. Applebum is definitely rockin Internationally, following a buzz amongst the hottest in the U.S. from The Roots, Talib Kwali, Currency, Damon Dash, Pete Rock, and many other artist. The Wu Tang Brand actually did a real nice collab with Applebum, called Wu Wear. They also did a collab with GOOD WOOD, displaying a nice black Egyptian piece.

From the “Players Belt” featuring the face of one of the biggest players in the game TOOSHORT, to the printed Japanese Projects “Babylon City” on the Zip Up… The Vinyl Dotted Fitted Hat, and the multi printed Shoe Box piece on the Bag AND the Easy E leanin’ on the Cadi Button Up!? Come on now, AppleBum is definelty on point so you better get with it!  Bonita APPLEBUM..you gotta put me on!

Aye Mami! Maluca – The New Bad Ass In Town.

10 Jul

New York City’s Maluca had the Club rocking last night! This “half Dominican, half pain in-the-ass” singer is giving the party scene a new fresh wave with her “ghetto-tech” sound.  Maluca just signed with Mad Decent records, the label run by Diplo who is also the DJ-producer who helped artists M.I.A. and Santigold go global. After seeing her YouTube video, let alone seeing her live, I can not help but to love this girl! You got to see it for yourself!

Note* She passed out Plantanos after her performance. Just a note 🙂

Check This Hot Mama Out!

A few shots of Maluca’s Performance AND her VERY COOL back up dancers. VERY Cool.
