After being signed to Rick Ross’s Maybach Music label, being named “Most Street” and one of the top Freshman of 2011 by XXL and having his single “Ima Boss” become a club anthem, it’s safe to say 2011 was a big year for the Philly-raised rapper.
Needless to say, Meek has had an incredible year and wanted to do some good for his neighborhood during this holiday season. So we teamed up and headed to Philly to hook up the basketball team at his former high school with fresh gear for their upcoming season.
Feeling good, the only thing left to do was grab the Dreamchasers crew and tear up the streets of Philly on bikes and ATV’s.
..today we’ve featured Jonathan Manion, a photographer known for his extensive work within the hip hop community..here he is shown at his exhibition with Reebok Classics at the Art Basel show in Miami..classic indeed..story below and video courtesy of We R Classic..connoisseurs enjoy..
Since his 1996 cover shot for Jay-Z’s groundbreaking album “Reasonable Doubt”, photographer Jonathan Mannion has been a major force in hip hop. Through his strong relationships with the musicians who trust his instinctive ability to capture their artistry on film, Mannion has created a body of work that has left an indelible mark on pop culture.
We sat down with Jonathan to discuss his rise to fame as a photographer and his upcoming exhibition with Reebok Classics for the 2011 Art Basel Miami show. The four day gallery exhibition event “CLASSIC” explores a number of Mannion’s most celebrated collaborations with legendary hip hop artists by examining both the iconic and the never-before-seen moments over the last decade of music.
As an added element to the gallery artwork, Jonathan is working with several hip hop artists to collaborate on a series of illustrated photographs. The artwork would consist of one carefully selected photograph of an artist from the Mannion archive, which the artist would then illustrate as they see fit. Artist collaborations may include illustrated prints by: Rick Ross, Rakim, Darryl McDaniels (DMC), Fat Joe, Mos Def, Fabolous, and/or Ja Rule.
..here we have featured Coco & Breezy, twin sisters from Minnesota who have a very fresh and futuristic take on fashion in particularily eyewear..commentary and video below courtesy of We R Classic.
Who would have thought that twin 20-year-old sisters from Minnesota would change the game of the eyewear scene? At the age of 19, with just a couple of bags and big dreams in tote, Coco and Breezy took the dive and moved to New York City. They hoped to expand their upstart, fashion-savvy eyewear brand, aptly named Coco & Breezy. And expand they did.
Coco & Breezy has become one of the most talked about eyewear lines in the industry. Their futuristic shades have been spotted on the likes of Ashanti, Kelly Osbourne, Ciara, and Nicki Minaj. And they’ve graced the pages of The New York Times, Vogue Italia, Paper, and Vibe. Their persona and brand image may at first appear aggressive, but don’t get it twisted. These twins are very down-to-earth. Behind their statement, blackout sunglasses—oft embellished with studs, slick strips of metal and chains—you find two sweet, ambitious ladies, turning their dreams into reality.
