Sweet Temptress

The album release party for the new Bei Ru LP on Friday was a lot of fun. Stay tuned for the first video from LA Zooo to drop soon. In the meantime here’s a video for ‘Sweet Temptress’ from his 2015 album Saturday Night At The Magic Lamp. Gives you a great sense of Bei Ru’s unique sound – seamlessly combining Armenian and Middle Eastern sounds with the hip-hop tradition of cutting samples together in amazing new ways.

TSOTW: Moksha Gold Series

The good people at Hutch LA recently got their hands on the last of these great Gold Series tees from Los Angeles-based artist CRYPTIK. Moksha is the Hindu concept of transcending reincarnation and achieving liberation, release, and emancipation from the cycle of rebirth. Incredible original handiwork by the homie CRYPTIK!

TSOTW: Scully

This week’s T-shirt of the Week is this slightly older graphic tee from Work Clothing, which pays tribute to Los Angeles sports broadcasting legend Vin Scully, who has famously had 67 seasons as the play-by-play announcer for the Dodgers. His final home game was on September 25th, just a few days ago. Currently available from the good people at Hutch LA.
