My Music Discovery:Rick Lucy

Everyday I receive tons of friend requests from musicians on Imeem. Most of them I just add to my friends list without out looking at the profile. But this particular musician I had to check out, I mean someone who has a breast on the album cover is worth checking out right? So I'm on his profile and I click on the song Expatriate and let me say that song took me to a whole-new-level. What's great about Rick is that his identity is a mystery and so is his sound. Its all over the place but in a good way. His sound is so unique and freshing, that I think I just found the song to my upcoming dance video.

adidas Game Mid for women

These aren't the first Game Mids to drop, nor the most exclusive, but you guys know how much I love a good high top, plus the joy of finding a nice sneaker at a regular spot, without all the drama and hype that can be so truly undramatic! Plus they have some cool colors and great fabrics, and to top off the good news, adidas made these especially for the ladies. Cooool. Available at all kinds of spots: karmaloop, zappos, david z, and more... Mostly $79-$89.


NIKE partnered with the multi-talented musician Ahmir Thompson, better known as ?UESTLOVE (Questlove).
Quest: “I just wanted to start off with a very loud statement, a sneaker that sort of has 12 exclamation points behind it," says ?UESTLOVE. "Something that just screams “Rahhhhrr” so you know, this is an extension of my personality. The inside (of the shoe) is of me drumming. Yeah, inside art is very important to me. Even though you’re the only person that sees it from a consumer standpoint but, I sorta know you put a lot of work into it as a designer, based on how your shoe is designed on the sole.”

The ?UESTLOVE 1World Air Force I will be available exclusively at ALIFE RIVINGTON CLUB this Friday, August 1st.

Store opens at 11 a.m., ?UESTLOVE 1World Air Force I goes on sale at 4 p.m.

?UESTLOVE will be on site hosting a private courtyard reception for all those who purchase his shoe from 5:30 to 8 p.m.

Interview with Zoe from Sneakart

Ever wanted to have the skill to customize your own sneakers? Then when you try to actually do it the result is quite...uh...disappointing? No longer is that the end of the story, thanks to Zoe Gilbertson and her husband Ollie. After years working inside the sneaker industry, the co-founders of Sneakart figured out how to hand over sneaker design to actual sneaker fiends. I recently caught up with Zoe to find out what it's like running her own business and what's next in the brave new world of "sneakskin"...

P.S. FSF will be hosting a small invite-only Sneakart party in Boston soon. If you are interested in coming, let me know.

R.I.P DJ K-Swift

Baltimore's DJ K-Swift Found Dead At Her Home

BALTIMORE (WJZ) ― Music fans in Baltimore are in mourning.

A popular and groundbreaking DJ at a top radio station is dead, and now city police are investigating.

Adam May reports the body of 29-year-old Khia Edgerton, also known as "K-Swift" was found Monday morning at her northeast Baltimore home in the 4300-block of Arizona Avenue.

Police initially responded to Good Samaritan Hospital for crowd control. They interviewed people there.

Fans are in absolute shock. They organized a vigil at the Woodlawn radio station 92Q where K-Swift was a DJ.

Messages of mourning could be heard on the airwaves between shows on 92Q Monday after K-Swift's death. She was first put on air by Neke Howse. "I have this insight that I can just tell. I just knew she has it, or had it," said Howse.

There are now growing questions surrounding her death.

They say K-Swift was giving a pool party at her home earlier in the day. They're investigating whether or not she consumed alcohol before getting into the pool.

Witnesses told police there were several people in the pool when Edgerton jumped in, but none of the swimmers were alarmed when she didn't immediately resurface.

"I've known her so long, and it just hurts cause I'm waiting for her to hit me on Yahoo! To instant message or text me, just walk through the studio doors, and she's not," said K-Swift's best friend DJ Kelson.

There were also lifeguards present.

After time had passed and she still didn't surface, they got alarmed and jumped in.

They were able to pull her out to the side of the pool. Medics were called but no one at the party attempted CPR while they were waiting.

When medics got there, they attempted CPR to no avail. She was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

When police arrived at the house to investigate the pool was very cloudy and the area was dimly lit.

K-Swift was the co-host of Off the Hook Radio, heard Monday through Friday from 6-10pm on 92Q. K-Swift began working at Radio One over 10 years ago as an intern in the programming department.

During that time, she held the positions of on air personality, on air mixer, and mix show coordinator.

"She's going to be truly missed. We love her, and I never realized that I would feel this way for a co-worker that's a family member. We've been together since she was 17-years-old, so it's hard. It's really hard," said DJ Konan.

The station's general manager Howard Mazer says finding a replacement will be impossible.

"Not only was she great at what she did with mixing and creating her mixtapes, but just her personality was really special. And she was loved by people in Baltimore, really loved by people at the station," said Mazer.

Now her studio is empty and her mic silent.

"This is an incredible loss not only for Radio One, but for the entire community and music industry" said Neke Howse, Program Director of WERQ. "K-Swift was an incredible talent and human being. Not only am I fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with her for the past 10 years but also to be her friend."

K-Swift's career was not limited to radio broadcasting. K-Swift was a popular night club DJ who was featured at several weekly events in Baltimore.

She also owned her own graphics, production, and management company, "Club Queen Entertainment".

K-Swift also had very strong ties to the community and loved working with children. She hosted several events for teens every year in addition to hosting many different charity events.

"Her love and passion for everything she did was the key to her success" said Howard Mazer, General Manager of Radio One Baltimore. "She is truly a person that both the radio and music industry will miss."

About the Print Plates
This is the very first time that the general public has been able to access a piece like this! Up for grabs is an aluminum print plate that was used to print issues of Sole Collector magazine. Usually, once an issue is printed, the plates are destroyed and recycled. This plate is also special in that it was the first time SC ever plated a full 8 page spread. Normally, just the cover is plated.

This plate is from the Jordan XXIII issue, so there is no doubt about it's rarity and collectors value. The plate comes professionally framed and measures 36” by 25”!

Good Luck! Thumbs Up
