Janelle Monae: Tight Rope

Friends In All Places...

Arif the Scientist here just to letting you know that the Friends In All Places segment isn't over. After seeing the initial two posts, those I've talked to about being featured have expressed a vested interest in this project, and some want to do full interviews & 2 are sending in videos specifically for this feature. So hold tight, you will definitely love what's to come.

Until then, keep supporting us @ UNKO & stop by the store http://shop.theunko.com

Erykah Badu: Window Seat

Friends In All Places...

Arif the Scientist on this beautiful GSDM bringing you the second installment of Friends In All Places... Today through Friday I'll be sharing with you friends of mine who, some secretly some publicly, are behind all the cool things you see in fashion, music and entertainment. Today I'm bringing you a close friend, EMMANUELLE TRICOIRE, who've I've known since MSN was the only instant messenger, :) was the only smiley & everyone had hotmail accounts. She taught me the little French I know & the concept of bringing out personality in every piece I create. She's worked in major Parisian studios & is regularly called on by well known hip-hop magazines like The Source & Complex. And I love that she still film cameras & develops in a dark room. Shouts to all the artist still practicing the original techniques!
Check out her site & blog for more: http://www.emmanuelletricoire.com

Friends In All Places...

Arif the Scientist here again bringing you a special treat today. Now everyone is familiar with the Good Wood NY Jesus Piece’s that have been floating around but take heed. Good friends over at The Goodie Bag in Ontario (Canada) hit me up with a dope collaboration to feature between PRPLMNT and Saint48 that produced these wood bezel watches. They are available in base colors of red & black. W-Shock watches retail at $260 via Wood Shock. And you better believe my version is coming soon lol. A feature video about the whole wood movement and a great street artist by the name of Beau below the images. And shouts to Kellen Dengler (shoots video for hypebeast tv) Everyday next week I'll be posting exclusive features from my friends around the world.

Remember... being an artist is not a competition but a contribution...
& still waters run deep...

Pac Div feat. The Cool Kids: Shut Up

J Cole: Simba

This video is subtly DOPE! And this was my first time seeing this... apparently it's been around for almost a year... At any rate, I'm trying to figure out how it was done...

Tuesday we went up to OKC to hang out with some of our friends. Shout out to GrpFly, Jabee, 88 Keys, Donnis, and Double 0 and Naledge (The Kidz in the Hall) for all being SUPER cool, down to earth dudes! Also a special shout out to all the new friends we made up in the Sooner State. Especially Vineasa, Nikia, and Addlib for showing us so much love... even though we're still not certain Addlib can speak.

He's Back!!!
