Merry Christmas + Wale + Music

I hope everyone had a happy holiday.

I discovered this video/interview for the song, The Blessing, by Wale, a rapper I'd liked a few years ago who is now getting much more shine.

I find it so funny that he had to join Rick Ross's Maybach Music Group just to get heard, but with them he has the attention of the "streets" and he has had much better beats.

I would love for this to be a series, where a rapper shows up and talks about the lyrics of a particular song they did, what they said, why they said it etc.

Watch here or on Jay Z's lifestyle site Life+Times

Class + GoodFellas

Leave it to the guys at Class 1974 to keep coming out with some fresh shit! The crew gives the mobsters of Goodfellas the usual 80's hip hop make over with the ill frames.

"CLASS 1974 is a nostalgia-based streetwear brand based out of Detroit, MI. They are 80's babies who are injecting today with a serious shot of yesterday. CLASS combines a love of sneakers with the movies, television, toys, and music that shaped us. Their motto is, "If you wanna get fresh, get CLASS."

I wish this was a sweat top and not a 3/4 length shirt so I can cop it for the winter. If this is released as a t shirt next summer, I'm on it! It will be a welcome addition to my Prince shirt.

They don't seem to have a website I can find! Check out more stuff by Class 1974 on digital gravel

EDIT! I found their site! it is here class1974
