With Diwang’s blessing, we picked our 13 favorite shots from “The Happy Rapper” photo series to share. You can also view the entire collection here.
Chances are, whenever you catch Diwang Valdez in public or talk to him in person, he’s smiling. This was definitely the case when Valdez, the Atlanta-based photographer and a third of Motion Family spoke with 13thflr about his first photo series, “The Happy Rapper.”
We gave you a heads up about SMKA Presents The Hangout: A3c Edition, and now you can have it all to yourself if you download it here. The 14-track compilation doesn’t disappoint and somehow despite the myriad of artists involved, listening is seamless as if all these cats had been making music together for years. Amazing what creative minds can achieve in all of 36 hours.
Our good friend BOSCO recently gifted the interwebs with her smooth, new track, “Slippin.” Let’s just say we’ve had this bad boy on repeat, and aren’t even mad we had to wait almost two months since her last offering.
Check out “Slippin” below, and download it here. Also, be on the lookout for more from BOSCO and production from NEVRNEVER.
Onisha “Oni” Román has always been good with her hands. Oni’s telling us stories of her childhood on a quiet Saturday afternoon at the studio and living space that serves as the +FRESH.i.AM+ headquarters. Yet instead of marveling at the style wonders her fingers have created over the years, our conversation carries over to the pain they have endured.
“Do you see my hands now?! This is from the iron, I burned myself really bad,” Oni says pointing at some newer battle wounds. “You just build the callous’ and just hope that they don’t look too crazy.”
