CANDI COVERAGE: The Launch Party For “The Girls of Blaze” Disc Collection By Puma x Solange Major Success In ATL

02/23/2014  |  No Comments


    Last night I attended the official launch party at Epitome, for The Girls Of Blaze Disc Collection. The collection is under the sneaker brand PUMA with Solange as the Artistic Director.
    I've always been a fan of the PUMA brand and was excited to hear that Solange had joined the PUMA team. We all know that the kid sister of Beyonce' is super stylish and a creative monster. I've always felt PUMA was for the sneaker heads that like to take risk (non-hypebeast) and embrace the different.
    The Girls Of Blaze Disc Collection include 4 designs: Rainforest, Burlap Rainbow, Tire and Dolphins.
    Solange brought on 4 dope designers to bring heat to the PUMA brand for the ladies. Gerlan MarceL (not pictured), Hisham Akira Bharoocha and sisters Darlene and Lizzy Okpo. The laceless kick is a statement kick, from the design to the colors.
    The event it self was POPPING!!! A nice location with a diverse group of Atl finest in the building. Epitome carries exculsive pieces more like a lifestyle boutique. Great music, tasty drinks, and dope giveaways. I would definitely call this a successful launch event. Shout out to Karla and Scott from PUMA. They Rock!! Head inside to see a few more pictures.

Album Review: Kendrick Lamar- “good kid, m.A.A.d. city”

Album Review: Kendrick Lamar- “good kid, m.A.A.d. city”

10/21/2012  |  No Comments


    Kendrick Lamar’s new album good kid, m.A.A.d city is an instant hip-hop classic. This Compton native put together a cohesive album that plays out like a short film. Kendrick hops in his mother’s van on the lead track “Sherane a.k.a. Master Splinter’s Daughter” and the story takes off from there.
    This drama-like rendition portrays the troubles of poverty and gangbanging and the importance of friendship, family and a strong sense of self. Throughout the album Kendrick and friends go on mischievous adventures until they realize the need for change. Along the way we get introduced to characters that we come to fall in love with like Kendrick’s parents and the homies. The original skits give listeners moments that are emotional, action-packed and comical.
    “The Art of Peer Pressure,” “good Kid” and “Sing About Me, I’m dying of Thirst” are just some of the highlights that take us right into the life of Kendrick as he paints candid pictures of particular moments. In the midst of the creative flow, tracks like “Backseat Freestyle” and “Compton” featuring Dr. Dre showcase Kendrick’s strong lyrical skills.
    Overall, good kid, m.A.A.d. city proves why Kendrick Lamar was chosen as lyricist of the year and fans will forever have a reason to sing about him.
