In Brooklyn Aint Sh*t Sweet, Except…

Cake! No not the slang word for money and no not the banger by Lloyd Banks & Fatin. I’m talking about actual deliciously baked frosted goodness! Tonight please join Skyzoo, Nina B. and yours truly as we present to you “Rapper’s Delight” along with the fine folks at Con Amore. You may remember that name from my release party as they provided the delicious red velvet cupcakes & Heart Failure watch cake the guests snacked on. Tonight Nina, Sky & I will be unveiling 3 cakes we each designed along with Alysia J. of Con Amore. I suppose it’s a battle of sorts but ultimately the winner will be all in attendance. If you’re in Brooklyn tonight joint us at Nicholas Variety 560 Fulton Street at 7:00pm to RSVP email BKConAmore@gmail.com


Blue Vodka > Blue Balls

Time For Some Action!

So as we all know punk ass Valentine’s Day is rapidly approaching. This year my gift to you all is the “Heart Failure” EP/mixtape, my ode to all things right & wrong in a relationship. I also hooked up with my homies at FluD Watches to drop a collabo timepiece. The result of said collaboration the “Moment” Heart Failure Limited Edition watch. I’m very proud to have my own watch, I remember coming up I wanted a casio or a swatch, now I got my OWN, that’s pretty sick!!! Good looks to Bova on the design & again to FluD for making it happen. I hope you all like it & if so I hope you all cop one. Karmaloop got the hook up *No Master P* uhhhhhhhh!! The release party this past Thurs was ill. Pics & recap soon come. Check all 3 watch colors after the jump.
