By Styles No Comments

While the rest of us are warming up our roots in time for winter, Beyonce, aka Queen Bee, aka Mrs Carter, is busy being the epitome of summer with silken blonde hair. The star has been sporting golden locks for a while now, but instead of deepening her color for cool weather, she’s done the opposite. The results? Barbie-like waves of almost white blonde perfection.And here she is at a party over the weekend, looking similarly flawless but with hair that’s even more Marilyn.

You should have been there!

Thats probably not something a media company should tell its family… but its the truth. We exist to put the spotlight on YOU; the barber, the stylist, the artist, the hair enthusiast… YOU. There was a great turn out! Brothers and sisters from all over the nation came out to show their skills, showcase their products, represent their cities, and teach some lessons. Most importantly, they came out to push the culture forward.

This past Sunday, we were able to meet with some of the most distinguished in the industry. @DLMasterBarber dropped some words of wisdom and wealth, we interviewed some local (and distant) artists, @BarberGeeks hooked me up with a fly straight edge (shot out), and… Well, I’m not going to get into the details because YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE. Also, we recorded it. The video will be posted on Monday, November 16.

Keep posted.

I looked up to Funkmaster Flex, Kid Carpi, Ron G, Doo Wop and most of the big Mixtape DJs from the 90’s. The Fresh Prince of Bell air

Only one thing left to do!

By Sport No Comments

This is the NFL’s “Golden” Super Bowl Season and Tom Brady is known as the Golden Boy. As you get older, competitive juices can begin to fade but the league and people around the world have ensured Brady’s already big chip on his shoulder feel like it did back in Michigan.

To Brady’s defense I ask why can’t the simplest answer to the whole deflate-gate be just what was said. Jastremski just went to the bathroom! Occam’s Razor…

What is the New Normal in Dating?

By Editorials No Comments

Thanks to reality television where the women are out of control, settling for blatant cheating men, arguing over dumb stuff, physical altercations with their fellow sistahs, and side chicks stepping to main chicks as if it’s their right. It seems we now live in a world where a lady, one who exudes confidence and carries herself with self-respect, dignity, and class, are now abnormal. I don’t consider these
