Popular west coast brand Young & Reckless teamed up with MMG’s Meek Mill for their new Fall/Holiday 2012 collection. In the campaign video you can find Philly’s own bike riding rocking pieces from the collection. The campaign is so true to Meek Mill yet also speaks to what the Young & Reckless brand represents. It’s one of the best combinations I have seen in a while.
Meek has been super busy. Not only has he blessed the Young & Reckless campaign, he is gearing up to release his highly anticipated debut album. Also he inked a deal with headphone company Skullcandy and PUMA. I’m anxious to see what he adds to these other brands but for now watch the Young & Reckless campaign video below.
Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of volunteering for Philadelphia’s Global Fusion Festival. In between banding V.I.P Guest and manning the press box (more like assisting), I managed to take a few pictures with my handy Iphone and I do mean a few. Unfortunately, I didn’t capture half of the festival’s essence.
For 8 hours, a diverse group of communities convened at the beautiful Penn’s Landing Great Plaza for a taste of Philly, deeply rooted art and fashion, cultural performers and music’s hottest artist. Anthony David, Brenda K. Starr, J-King y Maximan, OCD: Moosh & Twist and Shurwayne Winchester rocked the stage for the Festival’s Carnival theme. Major recording artists Meek Mill, Maino, Estelle and Melanie Fiona were an extra special treat for the crowd.
While manning the press box, I was front row for Melanie Fiona’s performance. As soon as she hit the stage, I was paralyzed by how beautiful she was but within the first note she sung her voice stole my heart. Today, we don’t have a plethora of GOOD singers so when you hear a voice that deserved to be signed it is undeniable. Melanie gave a performance which all artist strive for. It was raw and didn’t seem super rehearsed. She truly connected with the crowed. I was a fan before but now I can say she is easily one of my favorite singers. Check out some videos that surfaced the net over the weekend.
“This Time” – Off her new album MF Life
“Give It to Me Right”
“It Kills Me”
Overall, the festival made for a perfect Saturday. If you missed it this year, I’m begging you not to miss it next year!
