YO! after a long time at work we finaly dropped the Hoilday 2008 Play Cloths delivery. Although these initial styles were meant to be branding pieces I think they came out pretty good. Commonwealth in VA showed love with a in store line launch. The line was crazy outside. I will post pictures when i get them. 1
Yeeeaaahhhhh!!! Its the best video ever. This joint got out of hand when Mack 10 jumped off the roof landed on a car and smiled at the camera. Mack 10 was born in Inglewood, CA in 1971. He began his career as a member of Westside Connection alongside Ice Cube and WC. In 2000 Mack married T Boz from TLC but that didn't last long because in 2004 she filed for divorce and a restraining order. Mack 10 left Westside Connection in 2008 after beefing with Ice Cube. Mack 10 has sold over 2.4 million records as a solo artist.
Sorry about the slight vacation from the blog but I've been mad busy. I guess I'll come back on some gangster shit. Before Law & Order Ice T was one of the west coast most prolific artist. Ice T was born Tracy Marrow in Newark, New Jersey in 1958. He lost both parents by the 5th grade due to heart attacks and went to live with his aunt in Cali. Ice attended Crenshaw High School and went on to join the 25th Infantry Division in the united states army. After Ice left the army he went hard on the rhymes. His first song was "The Coldest Rap" but his first official gangsta rap joint was "6 In The Morning"

I just came back from a Jay-Z and T.I. concert so I guess Ill do a little history on these dudes. Jay-Z grew up in Marcy Houses in Brooklyn as you probably already know. His father abandoned the family when Jay was just a shorty. He had his fair share of trouble when he was young as we all did, but his led to him shooting his brother in the arm for stealing his clothes when he was just 12 years old. Jay attended Eli Whitney High School along with the rapper AZ (I guess that school had a thing for letter names). Eli Whitney eventually closed down and he started school at George Westinghouse Information Tech High School where he became classmates with Notorious B.I.G. and Busta Rhymes. Hov never graduated, he had other things on his mind. They used to call Sean Carter "Jazzy" in his neighborhood when he was growing up. Thats what spawned the name Jay-Z.
