MIA Skate shop had a cool in-store for Primitive Apparel w/Van Styles, Claudia Sampedro, Rosanna Castillo and Iesha Marie. I got there just on time to get some flicks.
Ms @ClaudiaSampedro_ is a sweetheart. We spoke about Animaniacs, revolutionary dance moves and Atlantis. JK I was more like “Hi, bye, love your work!”
And of course, the man himself, Van Styles. Had a brief chat too. Humble cat, his style of photography is inspiring. I highly recommend his work.
Its been a minute since Id seent Klever. I think the last time I actually saw him was almost 2yrs ago here in Miami. Hes been back since but I couldnt make it out. Friday night he was at the Garret spinning theee most ignorant hood shit there is. Straight dirt South ATL’n. Dirty dirt. It filtered out the untrill and showed who was wearing pannies and who was bout that life.
Some dude walked up to me w/his girl by his side like
“Hey,do you know the dj?”
“You think you could ask him to play something else, or is he gonna play this all night?”
-Hes a dmc champ,you dont tell him what to play
Then I threw him out the window, and kept his girlfriend.
Long story short…
2 hours before they leave (from Miami), I find out I can ride w/them to shoot.
Bust mission to leave gig early so I can meet it on time. Got there on time.
30min in to ride up there, camera wont turn on.
Send out MASSIVE SOS’s the entire trip. Very close to success but in the end, no camera.
*Shouts to Serge and Roxie tho for helping.
Soooooooo I took a bunch of Vine videos to document and got le’ very drunk.
Work w/what you have and win.
First things first, a message from Brillz ft Craze and Kill the Noise.
Shouts to Louie, Craze, Serge and Rudy.
Fun trip overall.
Diplo & Friends went down on Saturday, the first weekend of Miami Music Week or WMC depending on how long youve been attending this holiday. Among Diplos “friends” were Dogblood ( Skrillex + Boys Noize) as special guests. Dillon Francis was supposed to perform as well but he didnt make it. All good though cuz as you’ll see in the video, it was one of those nights. Major Lazer took their shirts off, and made ayy’body do the same. God bless all those lovely ladies twerking their hearts out. You are appreciated.
I had the honor of shooting the lovely Sofia Roque’s video debut.
We’ve done several photo shoots together but really wanted to turn things up a notch.
This was a fun, spur of the moment, on the quick fast kinda thing we shot at headquarters.
But we’re quite proud of how it turned out.
Our cutoff logo tee, some music, a whole lotta laughing and you have, magic.
Thank you, Sofia <3
How abouts some art-verk?
Special thanks to our friend Vanessa aka Camper Jane for the photo.
I arrived on planet Earth a week before Art Basel. I met up with space meow Ms Jessica Rivas. We wandered the beach and she captured some excellent footage.
We walked around and I manifested luminescent spheres for my own amusement.
We went hat shopping. What do you think of this hat?!
Although theres no photographic evidence, Jessica inhaled a large pizza by herself. At the pizza spot we met a cool dude nicknamed “Lalo” w/ill custom Peruvian theme tattoos. Interesting fellow. And mad drunk.
We went to da club for a little while after da beach. I got behind the camera and captured Ms Rivas groovin.
How about some new reflector stickers, sukka.
You’ll see some classic and some new Rok The Spot x Art Bastard stickers around Miami and New York.
Details are still sketchy. But at least 4 shots were fired at the A$AP Rocky show here in Miami at the Fillmore. Other artists that performed were Danny Brown, Schoolboy Q and Ab-Soul. Heard it was a really good show too.
Apparently after the show ended, members of Raider Klan confronted A$AP crew by the artist entrance. They crashed the fukkin party. A$AP Bari sounds like one of the cats that got in to it. My brother was at the show and he hit me up a while ago letting me know the bullshit that had just happened.
Running up on anyone at The Fillmore might be pretty gangster but dumb as fuck. That place is swamped w/police already. Tweeting endlessly about it is also not the smartest thing to do but thanks for keeping us informed.
*** The video footage dude was talking about is just cops standing over SpaceGhostPurrp. No actual fighting or anything.
-Other witnesses report hearing 7 or more shots.
-An unidentified fellow was seen trying to stash an object and then got tackled by more than 5 officers of the law.
-Some sources say SGP was not arrested.
-According to twitter (the most credible and reliable source for recent happenings)
ASAP Bari took the losing end of a fight. A fan jumped in the fight as well, but not to help him.
* Added – a whole lot of incriminating tweets to follow.
