Supreme Half Cabs & Chukkas


The Blue Chukkas are Sweet.


I HATE IT. Sorry to all the future scientists who check out the blog.

But it is something I have no passion in, and will not care about it in my own personal life set goals. Science is Me, but I am not science.

*did that make sense? haha.

In America around the late 1960s, graffiti was used as a form of expression by political activists, and also by gangs such as the Savage Skulls, La Familia, and Savage Nomads to mark territory. Towards the end of the 1960s, the signatures—tags—of Philadelphia graffiti writers Top Cat,[2] Cool Earl and Cornbread started to appear.[3] Around 1970-71, the centre of graffiti innovation moved to New York City where writers following in the wake of TAKI 183 and Tracy 168 would add their street number to their nickname, "bomb" a train with their work, and let the subway take it—and their fame, if it was impressive, or simply pervasive, enough—"all city". Bubble lettering held sway initially among writers from the Bronx, though the elaborate Brooklyn style Tracy 168 dubbed "wildstyle" would come to define the art.[2][4] The early trendsetters were joined in the 70s by artists like Dondi, Futura 2000, Daze, Blade, Lee, Zephyr, Rammellzee, Crash, Kel, NOC 167 and Lady Pink.


The relationship between graffiti and hip hop culture arises both from early graffiti artists practicing other aspects of hip hop, and its being practiced in areas where other elements of hip hop were evolving as art forms. Graffiti is recognized as a visual expression of rap music, just as breakdancing is viewed as a physical expression. The book Subway Art (New York: Henry Holt & Co, 1984) and the TV program Style Wars (first shown on the PBS channel in 1984) were among the first ways the mainstream public were introduced to hip hop graffiti.

Summer '08 is practically here. I was recently accepted to the program with Stanford University. I'm going to spend 3 weeks in Singapore as a part of their business program.

Discussing the country with others, I found out that their law enforcement is a force not to be reckoned with.

Peep this...
1. Gum is illegal - violators that are caught spitting gum on the streets will be beaten with a cane.

2. Anyone caught with illegal narcotics receive the Death Penalty.

3. It is the cleanest country in the world* (fact)

So after hearing all of that, I don't really know if Asia is ready for me...

Eric B. & Rakim


Eric B. & Rakim began recording together in the middle of the decade with "Eric B. Is President" (1986 in music) from Zakia Records in Harlem, New York City. The single, produced by Eric B., who incorporated the bassline from the R&B club hit "Over Like A Fat Rat" by Fonda Rae, quickly became a hip-hop anthem. Paid in Full and Follow the Leader were their full-length debuts and were hits by hip hop's standards at the time. In 1989 the pair teamed up with singer Jody Watley for the Billboard pop top ten hit "Friends" featured on Watley's Larger Than Life album; this was one of the first collaborations of pop and hip hop artists. Much of their initial impetus and influence can be attributed to their now deceased mentor and deejay, FLAME 3 of the TPA graffiti crew.

The Coldcut "Seven Minutes Of Madness" remix of "Paid In Full" is considered a milestone in hip hop, remixes and sample based music and is arguably the groups most recognized hit. Despite its world wide success which led to the track entering many overseas top ten music charts, the duo claimed not to like the remix during its release.

The duo's last album together was Don't Sweat The Technique (1992). Its single "Know The Ledge" was the theme song to the urban feature film, Juice. The song was among their most popular hits. During the recording of that album, both members of the duo expressed an interest in creating solo albums. However, Eric B. refused to sign the label's release contract, fearful that Rakim would abandon him. This led to a long and messy court battle involving the two musicians and their former label MCA.

In 2004 "I Know You Got Soul" appeared on popular videogame Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, playing on classic hip hop radio station Playback FM.
