Janelle Monáe featuring Big Boi – Tightrope (Video)

Janelle Monáe has always been a hard worker (and a very great live performer) and she finally releases the video for her first single “Tight Rope.” This version features Big Boi and the video is directed by Wendy Morgan which is off her forthcoming debut The Archandroid.

Tightrope’ deals with balance. Early on in my career, and even now, it’s a daily struggle to stay balanced and not get too high or too low. It was something that I hadn’t really heard in a song. If I was telling somebody how to make it through life, I would definitely tell them that balance is important. You can’t get too high on praises and you can’t get too low on any one situation. I wanted that song to be an empowerment song. I wanted people to find their inner confidence and to feel more self-empowered in understanding that they have to stay more balanced in life. That was my goal. James Brown influenced it, of course. I wanted it to be that 2010 beyond anthem—that classic song that you can go to in any moment when you feel like things are out of control in life. That’ll be your little medicine.

The Archandroid is scheduled for May 18th-release via Bad Boy.

Saint48 x PRPLMNT – Wood Bezel G-Shock Watch

Saint48 x PRPLMNT – Wood Bezel G-Shock Watch

This post made me shout to my boy “yoooooooooooooooooooooooo.” Actually, it was over Gchat but you get the point, these watches are disgusting. ‘Oh no they didn’t’ level disgusting. Saint and PRPLMNT have hooked up with Casio to drop the wood shock, which is what it sounds like it is, a G-Shock made out of wood. These watches are hand and laser crafted and will probably sell out quickly, so don’t sleep.

Nixon “The Re-Run” Watch

These Nixon ‘Re-Run’ watches are tight. They have an old school look to them, that fits in perfect with the style a lot of kids are rocking today. Watches are all the rage now and if you haven’t alreaady, it might be time for you to step your watch game up.

Supreme x Vans Chukka Boot & Old Skool

Supreme has hooked up with Vans again, this time coming out with a set of chukka boots and old schools in various colors and styles. Both are major players in the game and I anticipate seeing a few of these on the streets of so-ho this summer.
