Interview with War Chyld: The future of hip-hop belongs to the fans.

Rap Artist War Chyld

Rap Artist War Chyld

Nowadays,   you might say hip-hop is the new sex: it’s everywhere and everybody’s doing it. Although we have our own perspective on the future of hip-hop,  it’s  great to get an idea of where our most favorite art is headed,  from someone who is actually doing it well.

War Chyld, independent rapper from Philly, who gave us songs like  “Google me Now,” and “Honeymoon” featuring Slim from 112, is no stranger to underground hop-hop ciphers, and the mainstream version of hip-hop we see everyday. “hip-hop is headed in a direction where, it’s what each individual  fan makes it,” says War Chyld. “You can go to Walmart and buy a little poppy CD that’s all over ICarly…or go buy an underground legend like Sean Price.  Hip-hop hasn’t gone away, its still here.”

I remember when hip-hop used to be a cult-art, where you could pick a fan out of a crowd from miles away could maybe guess what he  or she was listening to and be right 90 percent of the time. “Hip-hop use to be just hip-hop, then they started using it in burger king commercials… and people  started feeling like, ” well I could be a rapper,” says War Chyld. “They take our culture and say… take a 12 year old with a Mohawk  and put him in a  commercial, because it’s all good and anybody can rap. They made a mockery out of hip-hop, but  to me, the heart of hip-hop  still beats.”

It seems to me that there’s two versions of hip-hop now,  the version we here on the radio, and the heart of the music, which you have  to do a little digging to find.  Click here for part II.

Michael Kors: Watches that make women break their NECKS!

A lot of women love designer Michael Kors; he’s a judge on Project Runway, and one of the best designers known to man!  I think more women wear his fashions than men; and yes, his clothes are expensive!  Just recently, I took a trip to Lord and Taylor and noticed a whole collection of Michael Kors men’s watches. There’s nothing more timeless than a good time-piece! Check out some of my favorites for men.

Men’s style: John Varvatos, a designer that knows what the American man looks like

John Varvatos is one designer that men of all ages look really sexy wearing.  His clothes are like 19th century English gent meets 2012  Brooklyn hustla’.

All his looks provide a clean and classy silhouette  with enough edginess to make them stand out amongst a sea of mediocre  designs and more of the  same ol’ same ol’.  I love the fact that he is an American designer and you can see how being “made in America,” has deeply influenced his style perspective.

His designs have a comfortable  fit and are cut to give an almost-tailored look.  My favorite parts of his collection are the accessories.  Bags, sunglasses, belts, cuff links and even fragrances, give Varvato’s line a very unique identity.

These are some of my favorite pieces from Varvatos, I even bought my boyfriend a couple of his things for Christmas.

Through-Back Thursdays: Wonerwall by Oasis- are we all waiting for the savior, that is always on a cigarette break?

G

Movies, books, songs, even poems, tell people what men need and what women need.  I’ve known my boyfriend for nine years now, but it wasn’t until maybe the fifth year, that I found out what I really meant to him.  It wasn’t until I sat down and really looked at our relationship, that I realized ( in the fifth year) that I had abandoned him every time he really needed me, I mean, REALLY needed me.  He had helped me through  the hardest parts of my life-step by step, day by day, tear after tear. But every time he got thrown out of his house, I wasn’t there, even when he got in his car accident, I wasn’t there. When he was at his worst, I wasn’t there. That’s when it dawned on me that partly, because he was a man, I didn’t realize (at the time) that he needed me to be their.  I think men spend a lot of time waiting for women to find out that their not the only ones locked in a tower, waiting for a savior to find them and break the magic curse; that guys need to be rescued sometimes too.  Wonderwall, by Oasis, released in 1995 made me think of the waiting; for that person who you would catch a bullet for, to  understand that you’re made  flesh, and that so far your ass has been getting shot up.  I’m glad I understood that I needed to save him sometimes, but some girls just don’t ever figure it out.

 

Anyway, that’s why Wonderwall is our thro’ back. wutcha think about this one guys?

Men’s style: The bow tie is the true statement maker of 2013. SAY SOMETHING!

The invention of the bow tie first began with a man named George Bryan “Beau” Brummell, and is a french version of the English classic.  Over the years the bow tie has lost some of its fines; not to mention that ties are easier to find and a little bit easier to wear.  Just because something is easier to find, doesn’t make it better.  Usually bow ties are saved for special occasions, but due to the emergence of bow ties in casual patterns and materials, they are now being used as the  true “statement maker.”

I found this on thebowtieclub.com this as a GOOD look, and it makes such a bold statement, without even trying.

Flag ties are great because they look good, and they say so much without you having to say anything at all.  Flag ties are more of a casual look, not the tie you want to wear to prom.  Honestly, you could pair this with a pin-stripped  button-up a pair of jeans, Nikes and a fitted hat for a really great urban-geek look.  Other great bow tie patterns like plaid and solid colors, can be really casual too.

I found this one at beautiesltd.com. This is such a sexy look. way better than a tie!

For special occasions this year, leave your tie at home and pickup a bow tie.  This one is elegant, sexy and sophisticated. It’s impossible to go wrong with such a good look.

I found this one at ties.com this is great look for fraternities, shot out to Omega Psi Phi!

Stripped bow ties are the BEST selection, especially if you’re in a fraternity or club and want to (or need to) where your colors. Never can enough be said about the bow tie.  This is a great part of men’s fashion that often is left out.  If you are interested and want to learn how to tie one, click here.

 

 

 

Men’s Style 2013: Top ways to becoming the sexiest man at the New Year’s Eve party

Men’s fashion can seem so simplistic sometimes; the regular, run of the mill pants and a shirt can be boring.  As a result, guys end up all looking the same, especially at the club or at parties.  This New Year‘s, you can definitely stand out amungst your peers just by changing a few things.

First of all, being  extremely stylish and well groomed doesn’t make you any less of a man.  Think of it like this, putting your own special flair into your daily fashion shows what’s special and unique about you. Sometimes your fashion speaks louder than your words, so when you go out this New Year’s Eve to celebrate 2013, let your fashion speak for you so you don’t have to worry so much about what your words are saying. Got it? Good.

A great blazer is a great place to start.  Don’t wear a sweater, and try to avoid bulky long-sleeve shirts (like those make of wool or tweed). It’s a good chance that you’ll be having a few drinks on New Year’s; whether you are going to a club or to a get together with friends, the drinks and the people are going to make you pretty warm.  Wear layers so that if you need to strip, you can.  For example, a great top ensemble might be a blazer and a graphic tee, or a blazer, a button-up shirt, and a tee-shirt underneath (depending on where you’re going).

This ensemble is also from Hugo Boss. Take a look at the movement and flow of the pants.  They are sexy, and are loose enough around the crotch and legs; making them very comfortable and easy to wear.

This New Year”s Eve, you want to be as comfortable as possible.  While your drinking and having fun, you don’t want to be worried about what your clothes look like.  For that reason, I’d stay away from tight pants.  Although they can be sexy, loose pants are sexy too.

Tight clothes make you at least twice as much self-conscious than you need to be. Trust me, I’m a girl. Tight-ass pants and alcohol will just make you look fatter than usual at the end of the night.

New Year’s Eve is the perfect holiday to add fun, dorky objects of curio to your outfit.  These kind of things  could be New Year’s themed glasses, cups, pins, hats, glow ropes, and an array of other goofy products that are available that I just haven’t seen yet. These types of things are great for stirring up conversation, and they make you look like the fun guy in the group.

Overall, make sure what you wear this New Year’s is something that you feel comfortable in, and is something that lets your personality through.  Don’t be the boring guy in 2013!

Have you ever been out with a girl and wanted to do something sexy, but didn’t want it to be something that was obvious to everyone else around? There are many super sensitive places on a woman’s body that are in plain sight even when she’s fully dressed, and every loves a little PDA sometimes.

1. The infamous neck.

The neck is a hot spot for men and women, all the time. A great way to get a woman aroused in plain sight is to whisper in her ear a secret.  You can whisper whatever you want in her ear, but make sure your lips touch her neck at some point, and say some words with the H sound in them so a bit of your breathe can tickle her neck.  If she’s into you, her eyes will sort of roll, in a “feel’s good” sort of way, or she might grab her neck when your done, as if she’s bracing herself for what’s next.  If she’s not into you, she won’t even let you get close enough to feel her neck. Give it a shot and let me know how it goes.

2. The ears.

The ears are really sensitive and can easily get a woman aroused, but there are some rules to follow when activating the ears in public.  A moderate level of comfort and attraction has to already be established before you can use the ears in public, otherwise it will just seem too creepy. Basically, If  you’ve had sex with the girl already, then it’s safe to use the ears in  public. The back of the ear is the most sensitive part of the ear itself and the best way to reach it in public is to actually touch it, more like, caress it.  If the two of you are sitting side by side, put your arm around her shoulder and sort of pull her into your chest, then lightly grab her ear, fingers in the front and your thumb behind the ear.  Once your hand is in place, rub your thumb up and down in a natural motion.  If she’s into you, she’ll sort of close her eyes in pleasure and she take a deep breathe when your done. If she’s not into you, she won’t even let you feel her ear.

Other places that were good, but didn’t make the list:

cheeks (the one’s on the face)

hands

shoulders

jaw line

In the words of Kanye: That Shit Crae!!!!

No longer are men boxing  themselves into standard men’s fashion.  The pant and the short, two that were the go-to, are now being intruded upon by the dress and the skirt.

That’s right, first seen on runways around the world, then on Diddy, and now Kanye.  I can’t get used to this skirt shit. If I saw my boyfriend wearing one of my dresses, I’d bust a capillary.
