“This song is dedicated to the fight for peace in the communities strongly affected by gang violence, racism, school shootings, etc. It is my hopes that myself [GhostWridah] along with Smitty of Interscope Records and Miami Beat Wave (Producer’s of the song) can play (at least) a small role in creating awareness of this ongoing problem. I created records like dying to survive, and my brother to not fall out out line with music that promotes murder, and negativity to show that good music can be made without compromising our communities and youth.
They follow us [hip-hop artist] and look up to us. We have a responsibility to the youth of tomorrow and we have thee absolute largest outlet in America, music. I, by no means am innocent in this matter. Before growing into the person God allowed me to be, which is myself I once made music that provided negative images of my culture because I felt that was the necessary criteria for a rap artist. Now I understand fully and here is the proof. Ladies and gentlemen, My brother.” - GhostWridah
This is the lead single off of Miami Beat waves [The Launch] Compilation... Which features Rick Ross, Dynas and more.

Summer J.A.E. is an exceptional artist so I wasn't surprising to hear that she stunned the crowd with her amazing voice. I wasn't able to attend but after seeing the video it made me even more sorry that I didn't. Here's a clip of her amazing performance. I am very proud to say she's my wife. Great job queen!
The Raf Simons brand has a variety of sneaker styles with designs ranging from subtle to loud & dramatic. Anyone who has decent shoe collection knows that the most valuable pair of shoes are those that have a versatile design because they are more reliable and they can be worn frequently. At no expense to elegance, the Raf Simons Neoprene Leather sneakers ($785) fit the bill when it comes to versatile shoes. These sneakers feature neoprene (synthetic rubber), fine leather, a top strap, and a nice color scheme allowing flexibility.
Puma and Kidrobot have worked together with the Design Association NPO on the “Munny” Charity Project. Working with the Green and Africa theme and having in mind the 2010 soccer worldcup in South Africa, Puma and Kidrobot invited 40 artists and architects to work on their Munny toy. The final toys will be shown at the Tokyo Design Week and there will of course also be a charity auction held. The outcome is very impressive and certainly among the most creative in terms of toy customization we have seen to date.

This is a dope watch. More like a spring watch if you ask me. Wouldn't do this for the winter. Crazy though.
