Still Proud Spring 2013 Launch Recap & Lookbook

Still Proud recently dropped another great collection of streetwear items! Still Proud owner Gavin words about his spring drop: “The great juggernaut of our Spring release has been unearthed. Over the weekend, I went toe to toe with 304 shirts, 39 windbreakers & 24 caps all in preparation for a photo-shoot that Sunday. Talk about grinding. Everything went to plan surprisingly, but there’s still a lot more work to be done in preparation for the launch so the fat lady is just warming up.

It only took me 2 boxes in to realize that this is my favorite release yet! I know that I say this every time but when you guys see it, you’ll understand why. It’s our most complete release to date & the name of the game for this year is progression, so remember those words!”

Check out some pictures from the Still Proud – Occupy Minds lookbook:

MC Melodee – Exhale Video (prod by Cookin Soul)

MC Melodee (formerly of La Melodia) has dropped her new video “Exhale”, shot in the streets of Valencia, Spain. After the successful release of the “Check out Melodee” mixtape (May 2012), “My Tape Deck” is MC Melodee & Cookin Soul’s first official album together. This album, which will be released April 1st on Jakarta Records, is a 90’s inspired hiphop album.

Hitting BoomBap drums are complimented by warm basslines & tastefully picked and skillfully chopped samples, while Melodee proves that she is not just a dope female MC, no, she’s a dope MC. PERIOD.

In comparison to the “Check Out Melodee“ mixtape “My Tape Deck” is more personal ranging from family stories (“Firstborn“) to losing and finding your path in life (“Up In The Clouds“).
