Hello all! I came across this Jimmy Kimmel video where his show made a montage of unnecessary censorship on Sesame Street clips. It's pretty funny and it ends strong. Besides what else are you going to do on the day before Thanksgiving? Work? Uh huh, maybe, but here's something to take your mind off things for a bit.
The other day I was at Private Stock in Yonkers and I shot some video of what's in the store. This is a sneaker and clothing boutique that has some pretty hot stuff in it. I stepped in and saw Rod one of the co-owners of the shop and was displaying some of the new Branded Baron apparel that they have. If you're in the area and you're a sneaker head, check them out. If you like fresh gear, check them out. They're cool people. The video is more of a teaser of the store, but you'll get an idea of it.
So, I was cleaning my desk and came across a Yeah New York business card and remembered they interviewed me back at Sneaker Con in March. I decided to go their site and search for the video and here it is. You can see Branded Baron shirts in it and I make a very brief appearance at the end of the video. It was cool and definitely check out their site at http://yeahnewyork.com/
Now I learned about hip hop artist XV for awhile, but mostly through Jay Wise. He has some good songs and I've become a fan. This particular song which he recorded a music video is one of my favorite songs off his recent mixtape "Zero Heroes". The video is okay, but I think the song is fun and has a hard beat. Enjoy this Music Monday song.
Hello everyone! It's a good day, new Branded Baron has been released and my homie Daniel Joseph releases new music. He collaborated with his buddies JS Krillz(producer) and JahSyah to form He Who Shines Truly. The beat has some nice drums, a good sampled hook, and almost has a house feel to it and the rapping is on point. Daniel Joseph said the song is between a conversation he had with JahSyah and it is explained in the song. I believe there's a 6 song EP coming soon, so check it out if I'm slow to post about it.
I don't know why I didn't post this earlier, but it's up now. When I was up in Boston I met up with Lori of Cavata Clothing and Jehue from the funny online radio show Gag Order. We chatted up on various topics and joked around. We could've met up anywhere, but I had gone with Tiff to the SOWA Market and parked at this parking lot that was full and the time we started talking, we were the only people there. It was great to see Jehue supporting Branded Baron by rocking the Red Baron tee. Now Lori and Jehue are good people, which is why I'm posting this. Lori's clothing line promotes art and music and a portion of her sales goes back into the arts program for Boston schools. So yes, it's one of those weird times where I support another rival company, but it's friendly rivalry. We help each other when we can and that's possible with the internet. So, check out http://www.cavataclothing.com There's some items you may like.
Jehue is quite a character and talks a lot, but that's good when you run your own radio show. He somehow knows everyone and he shared a story when he was an upcoming singer and producer who was going to be mentored by Kanye until Mr. West was in diva mode and kicked him out of the studio. All he wanted was to learn and grow, well luckily that was the past and he's focused on Gag Order. I happened to hook up his radio show with the logo and it is mighty fine if I say so myself. lol Gag Order is a humor based show and worth the listen. It airs every Wednesday and you can check it out at http://gagorder.me/ I believe there is even an app for anyone who has a Droid phone. Oh and Gag Order features some good guests.
The rock band Mother released their single "As You Run" earlier today and as a supporter I recommend you check it out. They're big Branded Baron supporters and I've been cool with them for a long time. 2 of the 4 were originally from the band Zodiac, which I promoted in the early days of Branded Baron and now they moved on with another 2 bandmates to create some good hard rock. You can catch them performing regularly in Philly and NYC, but they will be traveling more often to other states. You can check them out on their facebook http://www.facebook.com/motherband.

So I was sent an e-mail with New Jersey rapper Daniel Joseph with photos of him rocking the Statue of Liberty tee. They came out looking good and they were done by Mr. Lee Digital. What can I say? The man does good work with a camera and he'll be in charge of shooting the new Branded Baron line later this afternoon.
Website FKN-Famous who has featured Branded Baron on their site in the past, has posted a review of one of our shirts. Now if you wondering what will be in the package in your order or what other people think about the quality of Branded Baron here is a great example for you. I was very happy to read that the review was a positive one. I know the hard work that was done to ensure there is a quality package and it's good to see that it has paid off with a good review.
Hmm, I figured this was an interesting short film by Shia Lebouf that stars Kid Cudi and underground rapper Cage. The plot is a film crew follow these two and capture them kill 16 people. It's heavily influenced on the film "Man Bites Dog", which is very similar. I think it's okay, but thought it was worth sharing. I know Kid Cudi and Cage worked together on Cudi's last album and Shia will be portraying Cage in a biopic film, so that is the connection between them. I enjoy watching short films and I should watch some more, but here's one that you may finding intriguing. Feel free to share your thoughts on our Facebook or Twitter.
If you haven't seen the Facebook page you would have seen that Draft Picks has 2 exclusive sweatshirts at their store. Neither one is from the upcoming release entitled the Royal Rebellion Collection. It's not the first time there were exclusive colorways of Branded Baron designs. Yes, unfortunately if you do like what is there, but nowhere near the store you may not have the chance to own it. That's okay, because not every store that holds Branded Baron have or had our entire collection. I personally like to make sure some items are exclusive to everyone online. I want to make sure there are exclusives for everyone. The sweatshirts that Draft Picks has in stock are the Jersey Devil gray pullover hoodie and the "My Cool Club Is Cooler Than Yours" crewneck sweatshirt. If you like you can head over to them and buy one. I am quite excited for the new stuff, so keep an eye out for that.
