Listen Up: Adam “MCA” Yauch x New York Times Magazine

The late, great Adam “MCA” Yauch from the legendary Beastie Boys covers the New York Times Magazine!!! via High Snobiety

adam-yauch-ny-times-magazine-1

The New York Times Magazine presents for their last issue of the year “The Lives They Live” series, documenting the heroes that we have lost in 2012. For us and our industry, one of the saddest passings was for sure Adam “MCA” Yauch from the Beastie Boys.

“Yauch and the other Beasties — Adam (Ad-Rock) Horovitz and Michael (Mike D) Diamond — came from circumstances that had previously not produced any rappers of note. They were white Jewish New Yorkers who played together as a teenage hardcore band before they made hip-hop records; when they started rapping, they bent the music to their own concerns without robbing it of its outlaw appeal. They rhymed about beer, girls and mischief in screwy, squirrelly voices over music — by the producer, Def Jam co-founder and would-be Beastie-Svengali Rick Rubin — that pilfered ’70s dirtbag metal, old-school funk and the “Mr. Ed” theme song. They were somehow both credible and ludicrous, a joke about hip-hop that never felt like a joke at hip-hop’s expense. Their debut album, “Licensed to Ill,” from 1986, was the first rap record to top the Billboard 200.”

Yauch is featured on the cover of The New York Times Magazine, as seen on the above picture. Read the full profile on the iconic artist, who passed away May 2012here.

New Video: Young Scooter “Columbia” (Teaser)

Ok, ok… This song is one of my guilty pleasures this year. All of the things that are wrong with it, are the things that make me love the song. Such irony. The fact that the lyrics are so basic, he’s talking that cocaine/brick talk, The beat never ever drops, there is no kick, clap, or hi hat in the track. Just a dominant synth, bells, a worm lead, and the conga serves as the back drop for the beat and of course the sub bass that comes in at the hook. I mean nothing is right with this song but it still jams to me. Lol. I don’t know man, maybe I’ve lived in ATL too long… Lol. I guess that’s the beautiful thing about Atlanta, there are NO rules in hip hop for example look at how my man Trinidad James blew up. I think this “Columbia” record could be big.

In the fifth installment of the ongoing series entitled The Man’s Guide to Buying a Watch, Swiss manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen walks the viewer through how one should maintain that special timepiece. Having crafted watches that have been given lofty praises that include “works of art” and “style statements,” it should come as no surprise that a little tender loving care is necessary every once in a while. Amongst the key tips is that wearers should “avoid vibrations and impact,” “magnetic fields,” “rinse after salt water exposure,” “not adjust date and calendar between 8PM and 2AM” and “use chronograph pushers with care.”

Louis Vuitton Opens New “Winter Resort” Store in Switzerland

So who’s down to take a trip to Switzerland with me in 2013????

Following the opening of its first store in the famous Swiss ski resort in 2004, Louis Vuitton inaugurates a new winter resort store on the renowned Promenade, Gstaad. The popular winter destination seems an appropriate choice given the fact that 2012 marked the historic site’s 700th anniversary of providing ample and valuable real estate for those looking for a little bit of adventure. The store is a subtle mixture of the architectural traditions and principals of Louis Vuitton and the personality of the region – thus evoking refinement, luxury, and a poetic journey that takes visitors to the heart of the Alpine valley.
