"Rehab For What? Being Awesome?"

Cudi decided it was time to take on some of the rumors swirling about his friend Kanye. In particular, the whispers that West has taken refuge in an Indian ashram, or that he's being pressured by those close to him to check into rehab.

"All that's definitely false. I mean ... rehab for what? Being awesome?"- Kid Cudi

I couldn't have said it better myself...

Schmatta: Rags To Riches To Rags

Schmatta: Rags To Riches To Rags brings to life the vibrant, unexpected history of the Garment District which for many years was the heart and soul of Midtown Manhattan, but is now in danger of disappearing. For thousands of immigrants the garment industry was a path to their American Dream, but today most of those jobs are gone. A microcosm of the economic and social forces transforming our nation over the past one hundred years, Schmatta: Rags To Riches To Rags tells the story of this vanishing industry through the voices of the people who have experienced its highs and lows.

Hiroshi Fujiwara's Custom Rolex

Hiroshi Fujiwara teases us with a glimpse of his custom Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King. The extremely pricey timepiece features pink dials along with a fragment design logo and matching pink accenting. Definitely another interesting piece from the Japanese “Godfather of Streetwear.”

Venice Beach Skate Park

I met up with Maestro to go check out the brand new, $2,000,000+ skate park on Venice Beach. Legends Lance Mountain, Jesse Martinez and Steve Olson were also there skating the big bowl. That was the 1st time I had ever seen Lance Mountain skate in person, and it was tripping me out. I had to keep reminding myself that I wasn't watching a television, and that he was really right there in front of me, in real life! He was killing the bowl to; long, super-smooth backside and frontside airs out of a 12 foot bowl. It looks crazy when you see that in real life.

It was soooo many people there skating that it was a straight up crash derby, lol. There's ALOT of good stuff @ the park, but it's all just a little too close together. I was killing the little bump, quarterpipe corner thing. Here are some pics of me that Maestro took with his iPhone. His timing is great! He's mastered the iPhone camera delay, hahaha....

Nothing unusual ,he got a hot ass cannondale with hot ass wheels.the guy was average looking,had a helmet and a bag.looked like your average joe casual biker.Suddenly this dude gets on his knees and pulls out a drill.At first Alfred thought he wanted to steal his wheels,until he saw the drill.Is this what it has come out to?!people stealing bike with drills?Anyways as he was getting ready to drill the ulock,Alfred comes in the restaurant and yells,!yooooo someones trying to steal my bike,lets go get him.and let me tell you this ass hole tried stealing the wrong bike.first it was a bike messengers bike and second it was Alfred's bike and the motherFkr got a temper sometimes.so we roll out to this dude and start pounding him.my first instinct was to get my U lock and bang on him,but my bike was already locked up so , we bumbrushed this dude and started pounding him.Everybody is watching and wondering why this dude is being plumeted ,but at that point we don't give a fuck.we had to make sure this asshole dosen't do it again.me personal i have had 2 bikes stolen,in like a month apart.fuck that shit.he did't even look like a bike thief!so while pounding him i reach out to put my phone in my pocket and realized i had a camera on my wait.i pulled it out and captured the second half of the beating!

Maestro Knows #10

Maestro hits up Tokyo with skate legends Atiba Jefferson, Giovanni Reda, Ty Evans and Eric Koston. (I'm JEALOUS!!!) They also hit up Rip's gallery showing... (Rip and Rickk Howard's "soap fight" was 1 of the most entertaining reasons to watch Four Star's Super Champion Funzone video.)

Marc Newson's Ford 021C

Unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show in 1999, Marc Newson’s Ford 021C was designed with the young driver in mind. Young drivers under the age of 21, to be exact. Italian furniture manufacturer B+B was brought in to produce the seats, just one indicator of the amount of specialized thought that went into each aspect of the automobile.

Yatzer has posted a review of the car - 10 years on. Questions about why it was never produced are raised. Furthermore, the piece is a tidy recap of the design, and everything that went into Newson’s attempt.
