— L.A.-based clothing imprint, PLEASURES, will be paying tribute to Atlanta’s most legendary strip club, Magic City, with a brand new capsule collection dedicated to the ATL staple.
Atlanta’s Magic City, founded in 1985, has been a go-to nightlife spot for both locals and tourists alike for decades. Between top charting rap songs such as “Magic City Monday” by Jeezy and collaborations with major Hip-Hop artists like Future and Drake, it’s no surprise that the establishment has reached a level of fame that spans far beyond Atlanta’s city limits. Now, we have the pleasure of witnessing yet another special collaboration — this time, from a brand all the way in Los Angeles.
PLEASURES has now announced they will be releasing a new capsule collection consisting of 6 graphic T-shirts inspired by the Atlanta nightclub. The designs are quite simple, but clever nonetheless, with one tee, for example, using the phrase “Do you believe in Magic?” and another displaying an image of the all too familiar Georgia peach.
The PLEASURES x Magic City capsule collection will be available this Saturday, June 8th at 12pm EST on the Tour Life official site.
— Zero Fatigue founder, Smino, releases a mind-bending new music video for his NØIR single, “KLINK”
Last November, Smino excited his fans with the release of his second studio album NØIR and subsequently received much love, not only for his efforts, but also for hitting the bullseye. Now, since wrapping up the album’s accompanying Hoopti Tour in mid-May, the St. Louis-bred artist has dropped a brand new music video from the project’s second single, “KLINK”.
The Smino and Nicholas Woytuk directed visual features the artist showcasing his signature swag and fashion sense while talking big shit and urging you to “check his rank”. However, as the video progresses, things start to get a bit trippy as the camera motions become more interactive, Smino and the other characters start duplicating themselves, and more.
Take a deeper look at the full visual right here and, if you haven’t already, be sure to dive into the entire NØIR album.
— Southern lyricist, Big K.R.I.T., has announced the release of his fourth studio album, given us an official release date, and has dropped the album’s first single, “K.R.I.T. Iz Here”.
Back in 2010, Big K.R.I.T.dropped his breakout mixtape,K.R.I.T. Wuz Here, to critical acclaim and was instantly placed on the radar of many avid underground Hip-Hop fans. Now, 9 years later, Big K.R.I.T. has announced that his next studio album will be titled K.R.I.T. Iz Here.
K.R.I.T. Iz Here will be Big K.R.I.T.’s first album since his 2017 double LP, 4eva Is A Mighty Long Time, but it seems that this will be well worth the wait. Not only will the album’s source of inspiration encourage Big K.R.I.T. to bring his A-game, but he’s already given us a glimpse of what we can expect with his first single, “K.R.I.T. Here”.
The Camper-produced single plays perfectly to K.R.I.T.’s southern roots with smooth Gospel-like background vocals and instrumentation. As far as the lyrics go, K.R.I.T. declares his official arrival as he discusses topics like self-elevation and appreciation, independence, and more.
K.R.I.T. Iz Here is set to drop on June 12th. Until then, check out the cover art, created by Mihailo, Steven Othello, and Sig, as well as the full “K.R.I.T. Here”track, above.
