FAZE's Action Packed Weekend

What's up y'all?

I hope all our supporters are FAZE'd out and living life to the fullest. I just wanted to share our weekend experiences with y'all. Those FAZE Boyz were a part of a very important event in the San Francisco on Friday. The name of the event was Fashion Fights AIDS, which was put on by very passionate and caring folks to benefit the AIDS Walk. It was a great experience for your boys and we got a chance to see other fashion designers showcase their wares...and beautiful models of course. The organizers of the show did a hell of a job putting on the event and pulling in a large, yet diverse crowd. Check out some footage from the show below.

On Saturday, we were invited to private party put on by the folks at Studio 92. The event took place at the Vitamin Water Socialclub, which I never knew existed until that day, and featured live performances by one of FAZE's sponsored artist Stevie L., Erk the Jerk, and R.O.D. Project. Oh, did I mention that there was free alcohol and Vitamin Water all night?? I'm just sayin' though...LOL. This was a star-studded event and the peeps in the building definitely dressed the part. Check out the video below. Well, that's all I have for you guys. Stay tuned for future FAZE happenings. Until next time stay FEARLESS and ZEALOUS my people!!!

Who Dat, Who Dat???

In the world of music videos, busty video chicks, iced out jewelry, and tight whips sitting on deuce pluses are the norm. I love music videos but the ones that seem to have a lasting impression on me are the ones that beg to be different. After all, music videos and music in general is an expression of art. Would it be out of the ordinary for a Hype Williams directed music video to be on the same level (artistically) as a Salvador Dali painting??? I say no but many will challenge me on that opinion.

The latest video by J. Cole, 'Who Dat', is one of those videos that bleeds originality and has been the standout amongst other rap videos out there. The video is also a good fit for the song, which is not easy to do because I've seen many people screw this up. For those who don't know J. Cole, he is Jay Z's newest artist on the Roc Nation label. The boy is ill because he doesn't only rap but he's also a dope producer. You have to be mult-faceted in the rap game these days (i.e. Drake who raps and sings) to make an impact. Just being a sick lyricist will no longer cut it in this highly competitive music industry. Well, peep this hot video and look out for J. Cole!!!
