Back in July I traveled to Oaxaca Mexico with The Date Famers to help setup the Hecho en Oaxaca Group Art Exhibition at MACO – Museum of Contemporary Art of Oaxaca.  The exhibition featured art by Dr. Lakra, Date Farmers, How & Nosm, Retna, Saner, Swoon, Yeska, Vhils, MOMO, Nunca,  and StenLex.

My week in Oaxaca included drinking Mezcal, searching for rare cumbia records, eating Tlayudas at 4am, and staying at a haunted hotel. It was an awesome trip. Looking forward to heading back to Oaxaca. Shout out to all the artist that helped make the Hecho en Oaxaca show a success.

Yesterday was day 3 of Fashion Week El Paseo and it was my favorite day so far. The night featured the fashion of the Project Runway Allstars. It was a pack house and the Project Runway Allstars did not disappoint. I really enjoyed Pleying this event and setting the vibe for the evening.

Looking forward to tonight’s fashion show featuring the top graduating student of FIDM Fashion Instistute of Design and Marketing. 

Keep Pleying,

Last Week I went to the opening of  “The Dogg House” at HVW8 Gallery in Los Angeles.  The art show featured artwork inspired by Snoop Dogg and collaboration with Adidas. Musical entertainment for the evening was Dam-Funk. It was an awesome event to say the least.  Snoop Dogg was vibe’n to the modern G-funk of Dam-Funk and did an improve freestyle over Dam-funk beats. If you like West Coast G-Funk, I highly recommend checking this gallery out. The Dogg House reopens to the public today. Check out videos and pics i took from opening night.
