I downloaded Tyler, The Creators debut album Bastard this week. I can honestly say I have never heard anything like it before its been compared to Eminem 98-99 and I agree.He made the complete album himself composed all the instrumentals and didn’t sample anything he also designed the covers and made his own videos.Not bad for a then 18 year old? his lyrics are really dark with alot of references to Murder,Rape and Suicide but it beats these generic “in the club” lines currently circulating. This line in particular really got me “Fuck a deal, I just want my father’s email So I can tell him how much I fuckin’ hate him in detail” (His fathers dead)
The mans got serious talent his new album Goblin is due out soon but make sure to download Bastard here for free.
Even with fair warning that an accident was going to come out of nowhere, this still stopped my heart. I need a nappy change this instant. Don’t tailgate on the roads people. The picture above is your hint of whats to come!
Askew painted the following insane piece as a tribute to Revok.
This is a piece I’ve worked on over the past 3 (maybe 4) weekends for my good friend Revok. I need to be honest – after the really killer pieces Berst pulled out for Revok last month I found myself motivated to bring my A-game and rock something super detailed too (feeling left out haha). I haven’t really painted many other peoples names during my time writing but this is actually the 3rd Revok piece I’ve done. When you meet an artist that you really admire and they give you the time of day
Alex Fakso, a prominent personality in the contemporary street scenario, comes to photography at the age of thirteen when he gets a camera in order to capture his own “pieces” on trains. Since then, Fakso has never stopped rubbing shoulders with the underworld, being part of the Writing movement since the early 90’s and at the same time becoming its direct narrator.
‘Heavy Metal’ is his first book, a photographic story enclosed in more than 160 pages, documenting styles and vicissitudes of the graffiti universe, transporting the reader into an unknown and unpublished dimension.
Fakso’s photographs come from an inner research, an attempt to transform graffiti on trains into a well defined photographic style, aimed at transmitting in one picture all the intensity of the action, raw and honest, illegal and clandestine.
You can purchase it here for a mere €25
Another round-up of new arrivals at Karmaloop.com.
IAmking and The Imaginary Foundation are the main brands that have caught my eyes this week with some slick designs. The surfing astronaut tee from TIF is definitely my favourite t-shirt.
