This past weekend I was watching one of my favorite shows on TV - MSNBC's Lockup. For those that don't know about this show, it shows the gritty details of life inside of the U.S. prison systems. This is not like OZ on HBO...this a documentary series about the lives of inmates facing hard time. Real life time, for real life situations. This is totally contrary to my own life but sometimes you have to see how other people live in order to appreciate the life you lead. Enough preachin'...the moral of the story is that I seen the craziest shit on the Lockup episode that aired this past Saturday. I seriously cannot stop thinking about this shit because it blows my mind away the more I think about. I have two words for you guys - 'Tattooed Eyeballs'. Have you guys ever seen this shit before?!? Peep the videos and picture below and try not to blink. Now that's FEARLESS but may be a little too FEARLESS for me. I'll try to stand out from the crowd in more subtle ways. Enjoy!

On the other side of the coin, we have another great fighter, Floyd "Money" Mayweather, who many consider brash, cocky, obnoxious, self-centered and the list goes on and on. Despite what many may think or feel about Mayweather, he is also one of the top fighters of all time and was once known as the best pound for pound fighter before his semi-retirement. With a record of 40-0 with 25 KOs who's to say otherwise.
Now the stage is close to being set - Mayweather vs. Pacquiao. This will clearly be one of the biggest fights of the last few decades and will help revitalize the sport of boxing which has been steadily losing ground to the extremely popular mixed martial arts circuit. Boxing needs this...a clash of two of the most explosive fighters of our time. I can hardly wait for this to materialize. What are your predictions? Let me add some suspense to the mix by leaving you with this video of Floyd "Money" Mayweather speaking out on Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao and a video of memorable "Money" Mayweather highlights. Enjoy and until next time stay FEARLESS and ZEALOUS my people!!

Yo Faze Boyz have been puttin' work in as usual. We have shows on deck, designs on deck, and other developments that we will share with you in the near future. Hold tight my folks. I guarantee that you'll be excited for what we got in the works. While other folks are at the club, partying, making it rain, or poppin' bottles, we're in the lab puttin' in work. DETERMINATION and PASSION. Like the name implies, we're Fearless and Zealous EVERYDAY...not Fearless and Zealous once a week, in our spare time, on the holidays, etc. You get the picture. I lied...we may be poppin' bottles while we work but it's some of that cheap shit as you can see in one of these videos...ha, ha, ha. Enjoy folks and take notes while I re-introduce you to the highly anticipated "City of Dreams" on a tee!!! Until next time, stay FEARLESS and ZEALOUS people!!!

I hope everyone is doing good and keeping their heads to the sky. Your Faze compadres have been graggin' (grinding with swagg) like no other. You know us just trying to get the chess pieces strategically aligned to secure the win. In the midst of all that, we're just trying to pursue our passion and stay dipped in originality.
Speaking of originality, the purpose of this post is to shed light on a Hip-Hop group out of the Los Angeles area that bleeds originality - U-N-I. If you're not up on these cats, you better get a clue. The group consists of "Thurzday" (Yannick Koffi) and “Y-O” (Yonas Michael) and they manage to stay true to themselves in the home of gangsta rap. Go check out their website to find out more - www.yothurz.com.
U-N-I is truly Fearless and Zealous with their craft and it is completely evident in their music. We need more people like them, that are motivated by their passions instead of what's missing from their wallets. You feel me?!? I want to leave y'all with this line - Stay original and true to yourself and others will follow. I know that U-N-I intend to do this and you know your Faze boys intend to do the same. Until next time, stay FEARLESS and ZEALOUS people!!!

Sorry I've been away for awhile...did you miss me? Staying busy with Faze coupled with a virus-stricken computer can be blamed for my hiatus. You gotta love those PCs! Well, enough about me, I want to dedicate this blog post to those who have acknowledged our hard work and have helped share our vision with the vast online community.

Also, please support both of these sites because they do a lot to shed light on the indie fashion scene.

Considering that summer is coming to a close, I've decided to take you guys down memory lane. Do you remember the old school Slip 'N Slide? Not Trick Daddy's crew but the little water slide that we used to put in our backyards as kids. Well, image that on a gallon on Redline energy drinks and speed. Is this fearless or foolish? You guys be the judge. I say it's crazy as hell, given that it's real footage. Enjoy!

I hope all has been well and I hope you've been staying Faze'd Out. As usual, your Faze comrades have been in the lab working hard and essentially staying true to that Faze Movement. Over the last few months, we've gotten a few pictures from some of our supporters wearing their Faze gear in different parts of the country and even the world. The purpose of this blog entry is to give the spotlight to them and truly thank them for supporting our young Fearless brand. These pictures are brought to you from: Japan, Spain, New York, and Amsterdam. Keep the pictures coming because we will love to include them in future blog entries as well. Also, I would like to give a shout out to Mariusz at Lovin This Tee for featuring us on his website - http://www.lovinthistee.com go check that out.

Twitter, a Bay Area company and one of the most popular social networking sites, played an integral part in the success of MTV's Bay Day. As Mistah F.A.B.'s hit single, "Hit Me On Twitter", was played every hour during the day, 'Bay Day' was catapulted to the number 2 trending topic on Twitter. That's huge considering its vast user base. I personally would like to thank everyone that made Bay Day a reality and also those who showed ongoing support. Without the Bay Area's diversity and originality, Faze Apparel would not exist. BAY UP and stay FEARLESS and ZEALOUS people!!!

2. The "Oh, God This Can't Be True" Casserole - The first step to this dish is a Faze black and gold Christ shirt. The next ingredient is a pair of Dragon Eyeware Sunglasses in black. Now, add a big scoop of Supra Indy NS shoes in black and gold. Next, add a dash of the Krew Pinnacle Belt in gold. To complete the dish, add the Flud Tableturns Gold Band Watch. For increased hottness, add some black denim jeans. WARNING - This meal is guaranteed to be hot upon completion.
3. The Jerk Chicken Cross-over - For our last meal, preheat the oven to 400 degrees because this meal will have to be extremely hot. To begin the process, sprinkle the Don't Cross Us shirt in teal. Next, add the Sabre Poolside Revo Shades in white. Now, stir in a pair of the Nike Air Structure Triax '91 in white, teal, pink, and black. Next, throw in the white RVCA Halford Belt. Before placing the creation in the oven, add the white Cartridge Watch by Flud. To make this meal as hot as possible, throw in a pair of light blue jeans. Now you're cookin'!
