When you think of hip-hop royalty from Long Island names like Eric B. & Rakim and EPMD automatically come to mind. In the skateboard world, there’s also a few legends from Strong Island — namely Gino Iannucci. With impeccable style and a trick selection that blew the heads away in the early ’90s, the kid cemented his position the skate community.

To commemorate Gino’s 20+ year long career and his love affair with hip-hop, Mighty Healthy has teamed up Gino for a limited edition capsule collection.

wait heru

Brooklyn can be a brutally cold place this time of year, but it’s got nothing on Wati Heru’s new joint, “BKWYA.” Channeling the spirit of Gangsta Grillz-era Pharrell over a spine-chilling beat that sounds like a Hell Hath No Fury leftover, the East Flatbush MC cooks up a cooled-out BK anthem that’s less 1995 and more 2015.

Watch the video for “BKWYA” below and stay tuned for Wati Heru’s new project Dystopia FM, dropping March 13.

Apparently, Kanye West was pretty close to joining Birdman and Gucci Mane in the face tat gang last night. Thankfully, though, Kim was there to talk him down from the ledge. Instead, he had his mothers’ birth date and North’s birthdate in Roman numerals inked on his wrists. Kanye’s tatts were done at the Sang Bleu shop in London by world renown artist Maxime Buechi. But what if Yeezy really did get a face tattoo. What do you think he would get?

earthgang

Equal parts afrocentric and eccentric, EarthGang occupy their own lane entirely in Atlanta right now. Just take the title of the duo’s latest mixtape Torba, which is the number seven in Oromo, the language spoken by one of Ethiopia’s oldest (and “baddest”) ethnic groups. The seven also refers to the number of tracks on the project with each song named after a day in the week — which is the minimum time required to fully digest Johnny Venus and Doctur Dot’s abstract rhymes.

Torba is the follow-up to EarthGang’s 2013 mixtape Shallow Graves For Toys, and features contributions from Mac Miller, OG Maco, Childish Major and more.
