Fresh Kicks & Fresher Feet 

Posted by Roni at 12:47 pm

   Taking care of your shoes is pretty much an obvious thing to do if you plan for them to last for a long time. We wear them out then come home and wipe them off and place them back in our designated closet space for them.

We never really have an effective way to clean the inside of our shoes besides putting some powder in there for freshness or any other fresh home made tips we’ve created. And for those of us that want our shoes to stay as fresh on the inside as they are on the ouside should definitely look forward to the power of the Water Vaccum.

Greek God Of Sleep Answers Prayers: Hypnos

Hypnos-sleep hoodie

Have you ever been on your way some where and had to travel on a plane or train? If you have, you know how draining it could be and the wait times are never anything short and sweet but you knew this was the perfect time to get a quick nap in. Unfortunately, those stupid chairs are a far cry from “sleep friendly” and I’ve never managed to get worthy nap in airport terminal.

This is where Hypnos comes in. The perfect mixture of a comfortable hoodie and pillow. That’s right, our favorite hoodie just got so much more heaven like. Co-founder of Hypnos, Josh Woodle,  came up with the idea while on his way to the airport, although he gives initial idea credit to his brother Ryne, Josh wanted to find a way to combine the comfort of his hoodie and a neck pillow while traveling.

New Day New Year: 2016

Happy New Year!

We have finally made it through another year. We have all spent a year of  accomplishing our goals or resolutions set for 2015 and for some of us a year spent not quite achieving our goals at all.

But that is ok because again like we all tell all tell ourselves “this year is my year”.  Even though what you didn’t accomplished last year you may still be on the path to accomplishing them in 2016. And that means you’re at a very good start!

Artist Spotlight: Meet Coney Island’s Own-TORAE

Posted by Q at 7:31 pm

Torae

If you like real Hip Hop, you’ll love Torae. I always find it rewarding to seek out the next hottest artist and give them a platform to showcase their work, their bio and give our readers an opportunity to fall in love with an artist they may not have heard of before. We usually post emerging artists…new artists that need a platform. But Torae is not a new artist. Torae has been rapping for years. He dropped his first album, in 2009 called “Double Barel.” While doing press runs for his album, some really important relationships were formed. One of these important relationships was with DJ Eclipse of SiriusXM’s Hip-Hop Nation. He just so happened to be in need of a new co-host for his show Rap Is Outta Control. Who better to give such an opportunity than a dope realist rapper from the biggest Hip Hop capital of the world?

Torae says he was pretty apprehensive about it because he didn’t want people to get it misconstrued, like, ‘Are you a rapper or are you a radio guy?’,” Torae recalls. “But I try not to block my own blessing. So he gave it  shot! Three weeks in as Eclipse right-hand man, the Double Barrel MC fell in love with radio. Even though Torae was torn with what people would think of him, he realized some of the best rappers had other careers as well! Look at some of the really good actors that were also rappers; 2pac, Queen Latifah, LL Cool J and one of the best to do it…Will Smith aka “The Fresh Prince” So thinking of these amazing artists it made Torae feel better about his dual career path.

I personally got acquainted with Torae when I was riding down the street listening to “Hip Hop Nation” on SiriusXM radio. He was interviewing someone and I just really liked his authenticity. Of course SiriusXM radio is uncensored so I felt he was really able to be himself and delve in to the questions and the truth in what not only he wanted to know..but truly what the fans wanted to know. I was like, “Who is this Torae; The TorGuide?” Then me being me. I googled him and continued to listen to him between 5pm-10pm. When I found out he was a rapper, I as intrigued and while listening to a few of his songs, I knew I needed to do a feature on him.

Torae has a new album dropping in exactly 2wks called “Torae Entitled”

You can go to his website itstorae.com and read his full bio and listen to additional songs. Three of his most recent releases from ‘Entitled’ the tracks are ‘Get Down” x Pete Rock and ‘Saturday Night’ and “Let Em’ Know”

Here’s his most recent video from his song ‘Let em’ Know” produced by Jahlil Beats

Please follow him on social media. He’s extremely humble and approachable. So, if you have a question for him, feel free to ask!
