xXR.I.P x Adventures @ Burn Rubber & Bling Pig x DailiesXx

Wow, first and foremost, I'm in shock for two days straight that the world has lost TWO great entertainers. I woke up yesterday morning to learn that Bernie Mac passed away from pneumonia. Pneumonia? This is 2008 and we have yet to cure pneumonia? What the hell? Then I awaken from last night's craziness to find out that Issac Hayes passed as well. Is 2008 just a bad year? Grandma? Heath Ledger? Stan Winston? Michael Turner? George Carlin? Now Bernie and Issac? This is getting ridiculous. I'm going to go play the theme song to Shaft (||) while stating that "I
ain't scared of you motherfuckers."
Rest in peace to two great and entertaining cats...
...also I'm going to go bust someone's head "til' the white meat show." Jang-A-lang. Pause. Dollar Bill! Ah, better...

Anyways, made the trip up to the D yesterday to the infamous Burn Rubber for the Elzhi listening party. All this time I've never been there before and I've been to that area MANY times. a shame. Being in there WHILE being broke? Nah, not good. Hopefully by the 30th I will have a bread and SOON as I get my housing settled, guess who's making a trip back? This guy is, that's who! I already have my targets scoped out...

Hey, it's a Kid Robot hat! Don't know what is it. Don't care. Want it! It will be $50 WELL spent!

See those? Want those. AND THERE'S MORE...I just didn't feel right taking pictures of them. It made me look like I was casing the place and planning on doing a Danny Ocean. Either way, the place is awesomeness personified. Met Elzhi, helped Ketchums INTERVIEW Elzhi (I held a camera. Woot!), heard the new album The Preface (which is being released on Tuesday), chatted it up with some chill people, and called out some douchebags in a purple blazer. Fun times, fun times. I wanted to stop by CCS and see some familiar faces but I couldn't. :(.

Then it was off to Ann Arbor's The Blind Pig to witness the wildness that Buff1's album release party (which is also releasing. There's Only One. Go get it. Fresh!). I'll shorten it like this...
Japanese Food? Seafood Soup? Sheesh. Sushi? Expensive. Ow. Hot Tea. My shoes! ACTUAL burning rubber. Lame. Chopsticks? IN YOUR EYE! Hey, it's Buff1. Yo. Mos? Yo. MIHipHop shirts? Girl feeling on them? I want those shirts now. Loudness. Girls. More loudness. Breakdancing. Hey, it's Fred Jones. Yo. Many people. Gift Bag? Burn Rubber coupon? CDs? Woot! Guy pissing in parking lot? HA! Fight? Whoa. Drunk Guy? "I got *burp* your back, bro!" Uh-huh. Exit Stage Saginaw. GPS broke? Fuck! Lost? Sheesh. Tired? Yes. Finally home. Bed? Zoolander? NOW Sleep.

I'll be heading back to CCS in a couple weeks. Between those weeks I have projects I need to finish up. DJ Mo Beatz logo. New I.V. shirt. Trendsettaz. Grade A Sk8er Boy. So to further busy myself and keep me non-rusty, I've decided to take the Chris Houghton route. I really was feeling what he was accomplishing with that idea so starting tomorrow, I'm going to start doing a sketch a day, everyday. So prepare to see whatever comes to my mind that day. Ninja on a giraffe? Monkeys? Monkeys and ninjas? Yep! Might not be as awesome as Chris's was but I'm gonna try at least. Starting tomorrow. Not tonight. Tonight's Scrubs Night. And "Working On Revolutionary Times Promo" Night...

Musiq Soulchild - Feel The Real

Having been working with R&B artist Musiq Soulchild for almost two years now on his side projects (The Husel/Pwonda Love, and his top secret animation project), I was given the task to do the art and design for his eight studio album Feel The Real. The direction he wanted to go in for the album was dealing with the idea of emojis and wanted specific ones designed for each of the 24 songs on the double disc album. He also wanted the look of the design to feel like a text message but also still incorporated the denim feel continuing from his previous album Life On Earth. So here's a look at the design of the album booklet along with the 24 emojis as well.

Feel The Real is available on iTunes and in Best Buy and Target now!
