Hoodrich AW18 Featuring Romzy and Friends #FromNothingtoSomething

Birmingham brand, Hoodrich has been making a name for itself since it was founded in 2014. Jay, the founder of Hoodrich, has turned his passion for underground streetwear, musical influences and acquired sartorial know-how into a business. 

2019 sees Hoodrich now being stocked in the UK’s home of urban lifestyle gear; Footasylum. For their AW19 collection which is stocked in Footasylum, Hoodrich has teamed up with South East London’s brightest new act, Romzy to be the forefront of their first drop. 

SHOP THE COLLECTION

Hoodrich is inspired by street culture and this is shown through the products and designs that they produce. With this collection they have focused on how they can improve their products. The colours that they have chosen, which is a mixture of white, grey, black and red have been specifically chosen as they are easy to wear. They have used a premium logo application which you can see on the products. This allows them to stand out amongst other brands. 

One things that sets Hoodrich apart is that they have concealed pockets in some of their crews, hoodies and trousers. This is a thought out idea as they realise that people carry small possessions (such as earpods, wallets and oysters) that they need to be protected or concealed without losing them.

A Black Lady’s Sketch Show… It’s a No, Sis!

If you search our social media, it’s no secret that we were super excited for A Black Lady’s Sketch Show to hit HBO. The entire team upgraded their Hulu to include HBO just for the show.

With the recent release of episode 4 we can say with certainty that the show is WACK AS FUCKKKKKK. Omg! Who the fuck is in the writers’ room?

Let’s talk:

The show is fashionably perfect. Visually appealing. And, the Melanin is poppin. However, the comedy is blah and the cohesiveness is missing. With a cast of super talented women and creative minds such as Issa Rae, Robin Thede and Lauren Ashley Smith as a Lead Writer, come on sis! This show should be knocking it out the park. Instead, we still tryna past first base.

At this point, can we get a few Wayans Brothers on the writing team? We appreciate the all female writers, but this is some bullshit!

To date, Episode 1 was the best and it has gotten worse and worse by the episode.

Have you seen it yet? If so, what’s your take?

Jay-Z Ain’t No Fool

Let’s be clear! While everyone is mad at Jay-Z, Jay is clearing checks. Furthermore, we know that Jay is a very calculated. There’s no way he made this move without planning 10 steps ahead.

It’s funny how everyone who has such a major opinion and who is so appalled hasn’t done anything more than post a hashtag. And, Kaps girl just tryna ride the wave. Fukk outta here bytch!

G-Status Tea Spillage

OMG! We thought Beyoncé and Jay in the elevator was steamy. No! Get into this G-Status Atl Tea.

The interns were checking the emails today and we were sent some insider secrets. We all know that Reality TV isn’t so REAL! However, this spill is one that must’ve been brewing for a while.

Get in to it!

Hello Trueslam book,

I know you dont know me but I am a former military personal who is a PI. I live in Atlanta and know the cast of G Status very well. Through my investigation I was able to find out the real tea on alot of them. I have been following the ongoing beef and was waiting to disclose this tea when the season finish but it looks like it’s open game since they have been posting tea on Cordae and Jah. Well let’s begin. It seems since Adrian was fired from the cast and true fine quit as well as Milan, they have been on a promo trail to destroy the show and slander the producer. Well let’s begin.

Milan Jadda is actually unemployed. He has no job whatsoever or a career. He use to own this failing media sit called Lit Social but he never promotes it. He has no projects in the works. No music no nothing. He is actually the person running the gossip page gstatusfanpage on Instagram which really is a bashing page for cordae and a fake milan fanpage. Also he is homeless. When he is in Atlanta he is staying with his grandmother and when he is  NY he is staying with a white man name Kyle who takes care of him. If you look closely you can tell his whole life is fake. Watch his interview with Tai. He refuses to sing because he cant sing. If you watch the show closely he has been one of the only ones who has no business to promote.

True Fine talks about being the most paid but stays in a midtown apartment with roommates. He had a part time job but now he sells pills, does credit card fraud and sells knockoff merchandise on his website truefinecloset and that’s why he quit the show because he was scared the fbi would uncover his fraud. He also sleeps with men for money and has them pay his rent. He is the true definition of a scammer.

Adrian Crear JR is a full time CNA who has a boutique called bunny life boutique. It’s funny because if you look at the clothing he designs, bey are not actual designs. He buys them from the thrift store and adds things to them. Basically repurpose them. It’s a whole mess. He claiming designer and stylist  it really ain’t doing shit but buying thrifty and adding patch work to them. I was looking at the jacket he had in fashion week. why did it have the gucci patch on it. Talk about fake and fraud. Also I was able to uncover his medical records from the CDC and he has HIV and his t count is so low its turning into full blown AIDS.

I have more tea on the rest of them but I think this will do for now. *Sips Tea*

Now, who wants a refill?

NotKarltonBanks 25th Birthday Celebration Recap

Can we give you the rundown on TONIGHT???

OMG! Okay. We went tot the Birthday celebration for Instagram Sensation, @NotKarltonBanks. We were so excited to go as the line up was stellar and we love Karlton.

The doors opened at 6 pm for General Admission. The show started at 7 pm. We arrived at 6:05 pm. Had to wait outside in the Georgia heat until 6:50 pm. #Strike1

As we proceed! For the past month or so, the event was advertised as follows. Pay attention to the lineup.

However, upon arrival we were made aware that Vashawn Mitchell would not be in attendance. #Strike2

Don’t know exactly what happened, but one of Karlton’s team members make it clear that it was his fault and apologized. But by this time it was 7:15 and we was already in our seats.

As the night proceeded, Lexi and The Christi Show were AMAZING Host. They kept the crowd engaged and Lexi sanggggggg her new single entitled, “In The Room,” which we all purchased while on site because she slayeddddddddddd.

In exchange for Vashawn Mitchell, Byron Cage stopped by and tore the house up. Love us some Byron, but we still wanted Vashawn.

As we were ready for LeAndria Johnson to hit the stage, we get word that she had a family emergency out of town with her brother. #Strike3

We pray her brother is well, but we were ready for her to kick them shoes off and slay us in the spirit. In her place she sent Amber Bullock from Sundays Best. Amber sang her whole heart out for the Lord and we loved it. However, we still were ready for LeAndria.

Finally, John. P. Kee hits the stage and takes us back to the 90’s and brings us all the way up to 2018 with a sneak listen of his upcoming single. He was awesome and really showed out for Atlanta.

John P. Kee three SHADE All Night Long at a certain someone and it was much needed. John spoke the TRUTH the Whole TRUTH and Noting but the TRUTH. If anyone says otherwise, they are not of God. We won’t say who or what was said. But know that after John said what he said, Vashawn took that post down that he had up trying to Shade Karlton. #Cough

We’re sure footage will be floating around of the night soon. When you see it let’s us know what you think. If you went, let us know your take and what your favorite part was.

Again, Happy Birthday to @NotKarltonBanks. Thank you for spending it in Atlanta with us.
