Worx's Every Un-holy Angels Empire Summer 2012

One of the Jersey's best kept indie labels Worxlife is back with a fantastic new video for the people, and some info on their Summer 2012 look dropping July 15th, 2012. Their newest drop with be titled E.U.A.E. (Every Un-holy Angels Empire) and was birthed from the path we all make to reach our paradise, where you must shift and move mountains to create your course by your means and no one elses. What happens when society tries to force a view on you but when you do, nothing good comes from it and creates less vision? Do you go towards the easier perception of conforming or do you tread water and stay above just enough to see the light? Light please.

The collection will have two tank tops labeled "Gold Finch" in two color ways Grey with Black print and Red with white and blue print and on the side will have "JERUZALEM" printed. A pocket tee in two color ways navy with yellow print and heather grey with maroon print with "WLCO EST 2009"  on the pocket, also "East Coast Bandits" printed with a raccoon on the back. A black snapback with a green under brim with a design of "Jeruzalem" across the top in Old English font with "E.U.A.E" on the bottom. Check the newly posted cookbook below and get your gear HERE.

Here's what they had to say about the project:

"Today's society tells us to be good people who uphold traditional values and morals. A lot of those values and morals tend to be one sided and are forced upon our upbringings. When reality gives you a haymaker to the face, is our only option to forgive and forget? We're at war with not only ourselves, but the rest of the United States. We have to make it out of this hole somehow, even if it means to go against the norm and single minded perceptions. Every Un-holy Angel's Empire represents the idea of a fallen angel. We are all the same in God's eyes, except it's the way we choose to live our lives, We represent the struggle and the animosity in modern America. It doesn't matter who you praise because we're out here working for what we want to achieve regardless of the social normality. Praying to God will only go so far. Without the chaos, the balance becomes lop-sided throwing off the natural balance of life. Every Un-holy Angel's Empire is a beautiful struggle. By any means necessary, we're out to reach our hopes and dreams. The "promise land" is within reach, but the journey isn't a pretty one."

O Romeo Santos, Wherefore Art Thou Stylist

So Romeo Santos of the world famous Bachata band Aventura has gone solo and released his album which is mostly great, yet there is this annoyance I have with him or shall I say his stylist. Since the second Aventura album his wardrobe folks (or person) have been slowly chopping at his style to end up looking like a flamboyant 80's reject drug dealer. The music has gone from ok to fantastic and even has caught the attention of big artists Usher and even Lil Wayne (yeah I know...) but while his clothing has marginally improved, the whole tight suit and cheesy jackets are as bad as his "yessir" or "lemme find ouuuut!" quips. I think it's time to update that stylist or let them know they don't have to dress him all silly like that. It's part of the complete package as an artist to strive and show your best with what you also wear most times (esp. in Bachata), all I'm saying is let the brother look the part that he's in and not like a 'just got rich' hick with Pepe Jeans on. I'm a fan of Aventura and Romeo's music all the way but wow their fashion and design presentation has been underwhelming, at least their videos have gotten A LOT better. Check out one of my favorite videos below for 'Su Veneno,' it's the Bolero version of the Bachata hit which I think sounds better than the original in my opinion.

Worxlife Fall 2011

Local NJ company Worxlife has released their Fall 2011 line, it will be available online (September 13, 2011) and now at Black Flag Shoppe in Clifton, NJ. I already snagged up my 'Rotten Denim Cap' at BFS and already hear the 'Money Clip Wallet' is moving fast! What I like about this series specifically is the rugged yet mature feel to the line and that speaks volumes for the folks behind it. Simple yet dope.

Hey WLco folks... ikaw nga ba?
