If you still like Azealia Banks, she has a new single

BLOG POSTED BY SINEADSTUBBINS ON 12 MAR 2013 @ 11:14 AM
Like, I don't know. Does Azealia Banks have a publicist? If she does, then that poor bastard sure has his/her work cut out for them.

In a single month, the Harlem rapper/vocalist has come under fire for using gay (and strangely, misogynistic) slurs against Perez Hilton, has begun a strange racial feud with Angel Haze, publicly criticised Baauer for not using her cut of Harlem Shake and decided that all hip hop critics are just "failed rappers". Just in the last WEEK she has tweeted jibes at the Stone Roses ("Fuck those old saggy white niggas stone roses") and Instagrammed hate for Rita Ora (for taking candid photos of her and talking to her dancers ... sure, OK).

If you can manage to forgive her these insane rants, Azealia probably thrills you with her musical talent. In her new single Yung Rapunxel she says she's "tired of all the drama". WE HOPE SO AZEALIA, WE REALLY, REALLY HOPE SO. REALLY.

Like, really.

Chicks With Kicks

BLOG POSTED BY BELVEDEREFANSWORTH ON 06 MAR 2013 @ 12:32 PM

Nike is releasing its new range of female focussed Dunks. The classic Nike Dunk silhouette has been slightly modified to suit the modern daygirl and all her street feet needs. The designers paid homage to the classic look of the Dunk whilst cleverly inserting a slight wedge that remains true to the world recognized iconic design, taking inspiration from the top five fashion capitals of the world. Each of the following new releases has been made with premium materials reminiscent of each city essence in style.

It’s about time women had the option to rock sweet kicks whilst remaining feminine and it sure beats slipping on the same old raggedy Converse and Vans you tend to see day in and day out.

The Nike Dunk Sky Hi “New York”
The New York Dunk Sky Hi has taken the A.B.E (All Black Everything) approach that seems to be the classic get up for the standard New Yorker nowadays. The shoe features a metallic reptilian upper; with black pony hair panels as well as a patent leather swoosh.

BLOG POSTED BY SINEADSTUBBINS ON 04 MAR 2013 @ 11:54 AM
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have gotten naked for L’Officiel Hommes magazine, and now we know where babies come from.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Ah-huh! For those of you who have hit your head and suffered from a concussion inducing amnesia in the last few months, Kanye has helpfully reminded y'all that he impregnated a Kardashian recently. Yeah, the sex tape one! Through sex! That they had with each other! With their famous genitals!

And really, who better to carry this message than a French fashion magazine? Because fashion, right?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

SO MUCH FASHION! (I think there's an earring in their somewhere.)

Win a double pass to smalltown with Moodymann

BLOG POSTED BY LIFELOUNGESTAFF ON 04 MAR 2013 @ 10:39 AM
Kenny Dixon Jr. aka Moodymann is without a doubt one of the most enigmatic and influential figures that house music ever bred. Despite his refusal to give interviews and play the press-and-promo game, Kenny’s voice has been clearly amongst the loudest. His staunch and unwavering mission to preserve the rich heritage of Afro-American music while fighting the music industry powers that be has given him legendary status. Blessed with an immaculate way of sampling, he takes stems from blues and soul, and respectfully takes them onto the next level – just check his 'Tribute! (To The Soul We Lost)' ode to Marvin Gaye for proof. From his dark and dusty deep house tunes on Peacefrog, Planet E and his own KDJ label, to his more recent outings on the R&B-drenched Mahogani Music imprint as well as his 2009 sure-fire anthem "Freaky MF", Moodymann's fingerprint has stayed unmistakable.

The man himself is doing his thang at The Prince Bandroom as a sideshow to his Golden Plains set and we got a double pass to give away to one lucky lounger out there.

TO WIN:

All you gotta do is tell email your name and your favorite Moodyman track to editor@lifelounge.com to be in the running to score yourself tickets to one of the hottest gigs of the year.

GOOD LUCK!!

Vans x Metallica - Steve Caballero Meets James Hetfield

BLOG POSTED BY NICKJ ON 25 FEB 2013 @ 04:21 PM


In an epic collaboration, Vans and Metallica have come together to celebrate the glorious relationship between music and fashion. In this case, more specifically, metal and skating were the conduits from which a Metallica x Vans signature footwear line was born.

Each member of the iconic band had were given free reign over the creation of the new kicks, including any model they wanted tricked up to best reflect their own individual influences and style. As to be expected there's a lot of black, the Metallica logo is featured throughout the release along with illustrations from Hetfield himself and the band's favorite artist, Dirty Danny.

Accompanying the release is a four-part OfftheWall.tv series that gives an insight into the collaboration, the band and in this particular vid, a tour of Metallica HQ with the legendary Steve Caballero James Hetfield. The two chat about their love for music and how Metallica influenced Steve as a young skater. Plus you get to check out a couple of amazing old school cars that Hetfield's restored. 

If you're a Metallica fan this collab will make you happy. If you skate, this collab will also make you happy. If you're both,you'll be fucking stoked.
