Day 274: Kuratas - A giant robot you can buy (Video)

Japanese people and their infatuation for futuristic robots, but can you blame them? This stuff is kind of cool to me, haha.

At a cost of $1.35MM dollars, you can own your own with customize color schemes and accessories (Carbon shields, variety of guns, rocket lauchers!).

I wonder who's gonna be the first to purchase this robot beast... Whoever does, please play responsibly.

Day 272: Frank Ocean performing 'Pyramids' Live (Video)

Frank Ocean - Pyramids (Live)

Here's a video I took from the Frank Ocean show at the Wiltern in LA this past Tuesday.

I just have one word for his performance: mind-changing. He really puts it all out there on the stage, so if you have an opportunity to check him out live then I'd advise to go see him before he gets too popular.

Check out this recap my partner in crime (Twinksy) wrote up along with the pictures I took:

Day 271: Frank Ocean's album 'Channel Orange' in stores today (Album Stream)


Frank Ocean released his debut album, Channel Orange, last week via itunes, but if you don't want a digital copy then go pick up an actual CD copy which is out in stores today.

The album is very tasteful with a lot of soothing melodies and live instrument sounds. Each track has it's own mood-setting vibe as Frank Ocean puts forth amazing vocals over deep lyrics backed with so much emotion. I'm really impressed with the album though; a true piece of musical art none-the-less..

Day 269: New Generation of Hip-Hop in one track - Mac Miller x Casey Veggies x Joey Bada$$

- Off the Macadelic mixtape which can be downloaded here

A new generation of rappers are breaking into the hip-hop scene, and I'm quiete impressed with the sounds they are bringing to the table (especially these 3). Everybody should be familiar with Mac Miller by now, but the two others on the track should be recognized as well:

Originally a part of Odd Future, Casey Veggies is making his mark with his Customize Greatly mixtapes that he started since the age of 14. His recent mixtape, Customized Greatly 3, is full of quality beats and I highly recommend everybody go download it.

Only just 17 years old, Joey Bada$$ is starting to gain more notice with his underground rap style and creative lyrical flows. His popularity is quickly spreading amongst hip-hop heads, and coming from Brooklyn always helps too (people love rappers from NY f'reals). Complex did a really good write-up about him right here.

Back to Mac, go get his Macadelic mixtape (it's free) if you haven't already. If you're too lazy to download it then hit the jump for an album stream.

Day 267: Crooks & Castles x Hennessy capsule event recap (Pics)


Last Saturday, I attended the Crooks & Castles x Hennessy capsule collaboration event held at the Siren Studios in Hollywood, CA.

It was such a fun time as the event showcased a picture gallery of the late Chris "Lewds" Natalio, introduced a new Crooks x Hennessy T-shirt design, served free Hennessy all night, and played loud Hip-Hop music all for a good cause: the Chris Natalio FoundationI took the liberty of creating a quick write-up and posted pictures I took, which is all on my homie's blog: uncvr.
