When the last time you saw Pusha like this?

Meet Terrence Thornton, born in The Bronx NY, but raised and molded in the VA. (Virginia Beach, USA) You might know him better as PUSHA T; labeled as one of the realest rapper still left in the game. ‘Reallionaire’  is probably how Pusha would call himself, however, for the ones who trùly know what this critically acclaimed MC with the signature (Allen Iverson inspired) braids is all about, KING PUSH might be the moniker they prefer to hear.

If you are not familiar with Pusha T what so ever, let me be so  kind to go back in time and elaborate on this man’s very extended career.

MUTYA KEISHA SIOBHAN

shot with Impossible Color Film for Image/Spectra

YESSS!

Your eyes ain’t lying. These lovely ‘Q-Tees‘ are indeed the legendary  MUTYA, KEISHA & SIOBHAN currently known as the reunited girl or should we call it – reborn – group MKS.

However you might recall these lovely girls as the band formerly known as SUGABABES.

2013 was definitely the year of girl and boy bands resurfacing into mainstream pop culture with fresh boy and girl bands popping up, causing mass hysteria and stirring enormous popularity with emotional teens and former boy and girl bands regrouping causing even more hysteria from their in the meanwhile grown-up fans all over the world. (Backstreet Boys, TLC, NSYNC, to name a few…)

Ready to take a trip down girl band memory lane? Let’s go!

KENDRICK LAMAR A POLAROID STORY

taken with Impossible PZ 600 Silver Shade Black Frame Film

I know this might look like I crossed one of my own lines and ended up in bed with a rapper that looks suspiciously familiar to Kendrick Lamar.

The individual who is looking in my modest Polaroid lens is indeed KENDRICK LAMAR, but about the sleeping part… if you know me a little bit, you would know I try to stay away from those type of clichés as much as possible, but don’t worry I’ll spill all the juicy details behind this Polaroid later on.

Are you familiar with Kendrick Lamar? I sure hope so.
