New Slap: Crown City Rockers

Due to a lack of updates, one of the things largely lacking from the site has been our beloved 'Slap O' The Week' feature. While I do love The Hood Internet's mash-up of Dead Prez and Grizzly Bear, two months is an excessive amount of time for any song to be playing. We're back though with something new.

This week's featured song is "B-Boy" by Crown City Rockers. I suggest purchasing the original song, because it's dope, but the version actually playing on the site is the B-Boy Remix, which features not only the diverse cast and crew of the Crown City Rockers, but many other recognizable voices as well. Bay Area hip-hop fans should be pleased to know that this group is based out of San Francisco, and that the remix features prominent local artists The Grouch and Zion I.
If you are into these guys at all they will be in town, doing it big time at the Treasure Island Music Festival, joining the world renowned fame of MSTRKRFT, MGMT and many others on stage October 17th. I don't know if L.G. will be there, but I woud give a limb to attend the show show if it came down to it, so you can expect to see me going crazy on Treasure Island, with or without my left leg.

It has been a long time since I've posted here. Most likely due to the fact that there has been little to no development on the 111 front. Sad, I know. Hopefully that all changes now that both me and L.G. are back in the Valley and in the midst of a T-shirt project of a very different kind.

So this past weekend me and L.G. hit up the oh so beautiful and sunny town of Los Angeles. Aside from eating Macaroni Pancakes at BluePlate and checking out some crazy Promenade street acts, including a pair of belligerent, evangelical Christian, anti-evolution open-mic speakers (Hey man! Fuck Chimpanzees!) we checked out a lot of the town's sickest stores. Union, Diamond, Hall of Fame, Supreme, The Hundreds L.A. and Undefeated were just a couple of the cool spots we stopped by. I, for one, can say, that after the speedy drive back from Los Angeles to the Bay Area, I feel all the more excited to start putting designs we have into their much deserved, physical form. SO LOOKOUT!

Above: Macaroni-Pancakes are exactly what you think, just mac and cheese and nice ol' pancakes. Crazy you say? Fucking delicious.

One store I'd like to give a special shoutout to is a store called And Still, which focuses on and specializes in retro (mostly 80s and 90s era, is that retro yet?) sportswear. Whether it be that Run DMC pull-over you always wanted or any assortment of sports team caps from back in the day when all their logos were jacked up and crazy, then this is the spot to be. I could probably dress myself for an entire lifetime just with the awesome inventory they have there. So, my peoples, if you ever get a chance to stop by their store it's at 114 S La Brea. Or hit up their website.

Okay, so it's been a month, my bad, it was finals week, then it was summer, then I became lazy and all of a sudden 4 weeks had passed. I'm sorry. Not that anyone reads this (yet), but my apologies to, I guess myself, regardless, things are back on track, you can take my word for it.

In the process of getting actual process of getting clothing out there, me and L.G. are on step...I don't know the number of steps actually, but we're still in the design phase. There are too many good ideas cooking in my brain for me to pass this opportunity up. With that being said, incrementally, slowly but surely, shirts are definitely going to be released and printed, there is no doubt in my mind that will be a done deal before the month is over, this time, with plenty of updates. So check back in for info on THAT.

In other news, I haven't been drawing as much as I should or like to, so for the time being I'll be making sure to post as much art and prints/concepts as I can in hopes of keeping myself sharp. This first one came out alright... eh, I'm not even really that pumped about it, but since this site hasn't been updated since June 2nd, BRING THE SHIT ON!
