Only have a minute or two so i'll make it quick. Monday off from school mean's back to NY for the weekend, which i'm hyped about... Wish the weather wasn't going to be so shitty, but whatever. Anyway, useless post -- just tryna update at least once a day. Porn's great, but sex appeal through portraits can be far more aesthetically pleasing. Portraits interest me so much more than landscapes and pretty sunsets. Anyone can sit by a lake until sunset and shoot a pretty scene, but I find portraits can evoke so much more appeal and interest.

The book will recap projects, products, collaborations including interviews with Supreme's creator James Jebbia along with Kaws and as always, the artwork and design are fucking on point.. Personally, I think it's kinda whack that the first location supreme products will be releasing other than the Supreme Stores is amazon (even though it is a book). As hyped as I am for the book, but i'm sure Jebbia's price tag will make me skeptical about the piece.
Some photos from the upcoming book:

While there hasn't been too much exciting since Vinnie Paz, Apathy & Celph Titled released their new AOTP album in march, Murs and 9th Wonder have teamed up again with the production of 'Fornever'. I'm always a fan of Murs's jam's as he continues to deliver with his storylike flow. Be sure to cop Fornever as you won't be disappointed.

Couple of homie's Powell and Josh bringing the rap game to NMH as Evaflo & J.A.X. I don't know how big rap is in the prep school scene, but they've made quite an impact here. As Greenfield isn't exactly the center of rap culture, it's only the beginning for them and you'll start seeing the names pop up more and more as both of them continue dropping tracks this summer.
I'm sure you're thinking a bunch of rich kids at prep school must be a joke, but be sure to bump some of their tracks, it's dope stuff:
Some shots I took this afternoon:

Yet another punk band collabo, Supreme teams up with The Clash. Tees are looking dope, some of the best in a long ass time other than the Morton's, and those motion tee's...

A year or two ago, my British friends used to send me camera phone photos, and tell me all about this 'crazy street artist', Banksy. Since then, i've followed him and have become a huge fan of his work. Banksy cleverly uses stencils and street art to satirize government, authority and society. His first appearance in new york, was his 'pet shop' in the village, which was only open for a few days. I went to see it with a couple of friends and I was actually pretty impressed, (photography of the shop by Jesse Santana).
After the shop's closing, Banksy continued his work in new york with a piece on grand:
After the pet shop, Banksy began to sell his work more publicly, as he sold the rights of his book to Urban Outfitters along with other stores, many of his followers were upset as they believed he was starting to sell out. Additionally, he recently premiered his movie 'Through The Gift Shop' http://hypebeast.com/2010/04/banksy-exit-gift-shop/. I'm looking forward to the movie but It's hard to ignore that he seems to be moving in the direction of wealth and popularity as it contradicts much of his work.

Since I'm really into lots of old school and 'underground' hip hop artists and tend to stray away from Wayne, Drake, and most of the other shitty mainstream rappers who add 'lil' to their name, I've been quite hesitant to listen to any of the remixes/mashups outside of parties etc. As I've been bumping the same doom, biggie, talib, nas and tribe songs for the last year or two, my friend made me listen to a few tracks and i'll admit; it's not bad at all.
