— 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.
— Audible Hustle’s Flymind Poets remix Lil Baby’s recent hit with their latest Nation Mix, “Yes…Indeed”.
If you’ve been following Flymind Poetsover the past few months, you know that since the release of Frank’O Shack’s debut album, $hackTalk EP, Vol. 1, the duo has been steadily dropping a series of album-quality loosies. Now, Barz Damu and Frank’O Shack have decided to put their own spin on Lil Baby and Drake’s latest hit, “Yes Indeed”.
As always, the twin brothers attack this beat with reckless abandon. Check out the track and tell us… Which version do you prefer?
The 40 Years of Hip Hop Mashup is what you need to hold you over until you make it back to the aux cord after work. Chicago based production group, The Hood Internet, known for their pretty interesting song mashups posted to YouTube and Soundcloud, have taken on the task of smashing 40 years of hip hop into 4 minutes. It sounds damn near impossible but they did it, with each artist finishing the bars of the last. That’s the real feat here but they made it seem so effortless without missing a beat, resulting in a very solid hip hop mini history lesson.
There’s really something for every hip hop head in this mix. I’ve really never been so satisfied with tiny snippets of music but I was able to reminisce on Pimp C, get a Pac fix, and Harlem Shake to “All About The Benjamins” all in four minutes. The Hood Internet wasn’t playing games about going back in time either; The 40 Years of Hip Hop Mashup has Afrika Bambataa and Grandmaster Flash somehow cohesively sharing a slot with Ying Yang Twins and House of Pain. It was nice to see that The 40 Years of Hip Hop Mashup made sure not to leave out the female hip hop presence with appearances from Lauryn Hill, Missy, and Salt N Pepa.
