Another dope as cheese moment. Found it on Blind I. Thanks Suli.

Asher Roth is from Morrisville, Pennsylvania. He is currently signed to a joint venture between Scooter Braun's Schoolboy Music and SRC Records.

Straight from the horses mouth: "The first CD I ever bought was Dave Matthews Band's 'Crash'...That is how suburban I am...I finally got into hip hop in '98 when I heard the Annie sample with Jay-Z....When I wrote my 'A Milli' freestyle, that was me listening to 10 years of hip hop and not relating to it at all. Like, Damn I don’t sell coke. Damn, I don’t have cars or 25-inch rims. I don't have guns. I finally got to a point where I had the confidence to do this thing myself, and I was making music for me. And it turns out, a lot of people feel the same way I do. I was always from the outside looking in. Hip-hop has always been very influential in the ‘burbs, but it’s just a matter of where we could relate to it. You find a lot of kids that are really confused. You look at them and they’re dressed out of character. They don’t look right. I figured out, I don’t have to dress this way, but I can still love hip-hop."

Your Head On His Stick

He refers to himself as 'THE GIANT'. And standing at about 6'9", his height still isn't a match to the immeasurable weight that is his talent. The title of this blog is not at all sexual. It is a reference to the human lollipops that always catch my attention in the work of Hebru Brantley. To know Hebru or as I like to call him, Hebee, is to love him. He recognizes the God in him that is his ability to create from observation and he bestows his creations to those of us who can be inspired by it, which is to say all of us. Art is his genius, painting is his flair. From show rooms to street tunnels, from advertisements to web layouts, from wood to canvas, the greatness of Hebru Brantley goes unrecognized, and he's got the clientele numbers to prove it. His next show titled, Fade Resistant, is this coming Friday, May 1st at Three Peas Art Lounge from 6pm-10pm in Chicago.

Scratch That Out, I've Got Another Idea.

Pharrell has changed his mind about his tatts, and he's removing every last one of them. He says he doesn't want any of them. And so laser surgery it is, which I've personally heard is a lot more painful than getting the actual tattoos. "Laser treatment b**ches! Extra crispy," the rapper wrote on his blog of the procedure. "See, no skin graft here, just pure laser pain. This is our own version of Mythbusters! Laser is the new primer." Hey, a guys got the right to change his mind right?? But damn.

The Nugget

This golden man Ring called 1981 'ATARI Ring' which features a replica of the original Atari computer(ATARI gaming system) chip and 18 Karat gold. Bling!! Designed by Brooklyn based Japanese artist Sakurako Shimizu. There is a silver version, too.

Small in a Big Way...The Advancement of the 3 wheeler

The future of inner city traffic could belong to 3 wheeled vehicles. Due to their light weight they are capable of reducing energy consumption significantly compared to their 4 wheeled relatives. Besides that they look pretty dapperishly flashy.

RAT CHOPPER?? indubitably
