Flyy Style: Johnny Cupcakes East vs West: Battle of the Big Kid Emcees T-Shirts


Just when I thought the east vs west coast hip hop battle was coming to an end, Johnny Cupcakes adds more flour to the batter with the release of the East vs. West: Battle of the Big Kid Emcees T-Shirts. Johnny Cupcakes’ mascot, Big Kid, is transformed into iconic rappers Biggie, who reps the East, and Tupac, who reps the West. Seeing these rap legends as the rosy-cheeked, pot-bellied mascot simmers the beef and makes peace of the situation. You can pre-order your t-shirts here.

Solange’s Feature In COMPLEX Magazine’s June/July 2013 issue x Collabs with Kendrick Lamar on “Looks Good With Trouble” Remix

complexsolangecover
Solange looks incredible in her feature in COMPLEX Magazine’s June/July 2013 issue. Wearing chic summer-ready outfits, she flaunts her smooth, shapely legs in some mean red pumps. Here are the gorgeous photos from the feature story along with quotes:


“I wanted to make all of the creative artistic decisions but I wasn’t the one paying for it. And they didn’t fully trust me to make them,” she says. “Every decision was a battle. It was exhausting. I wanted to be in a position where not only was the music fully my body of work, but everything thereafter was also my body of work. I knew that meant I had to leave and that I had to struggle.”

“I have a mother who never took no for an answer when it came to her creative pursuits,” Solange says. “She started a hair salon in her spare bedroom and four years later had 30 employees. I have a father who was the first black student at his junior high and high school and had to do a lot to get to that point. So it’s really in my bloodline when it comes to having an idea and making it happen.”


“When I’m home, I’m just straight mommin’ it,” Solange says of life in Brooklyn, which revolves around 8-year-old Juelz. “School runs, play dates, soccer games, etc. You have to constantly fight for that balance and now I kinda got it under control.” After a hectic few weeks on tour, she’s looking forward to leaving town with Juelz later today for a two-week vacation—a week in L.A. and a week in New Orleans, where she feels very, very at home. “I go to crazy bounce clubs,” she says. “I eat crazy po’ boys, drink daiquiris. I ride my bike a lot.”

Plus, she connects with Kendrick Lamar for the remix of “Looks Good With Trouble” from her True EP:
