Markus Prime has been quite the talk of the streets for a while, as he’s received local and international recognition for his artistic talents. Known as the Sharpie King, Markus enjoys focusing on the female body in his work, especially curvier women with big hair. He states “the main focus of his work it to show that these women are not only physically desirable, but also fierce and strong powerful leaders.”
This week, the honor goes to: The queen of ghetto, the fierce eyes of Mark Castle, our favorite Destiny’s child member Tenitra Michelle Williams, photographer Kasey Stokes and amazing Illustrator Mari Orduna.
Los Angeles has another multi talented gem on their hands, with Veronica Cosmo(singer, songwriter, rapper & dancer), who brings us her deep; and somewhat of a 90’s soul voice to vibe out to, with her latest track “Tryna Get My Life” written by Veronica herself and produced by Willa Beez.
We are going to coin JMSN as the juggernaut from now on; because we just don’t see him slowing down or being stopped at this point. Yes, we’re aware that there has only been two singles for his upcoming album, but they are two very goooood (extra o’s necessary) songs. Following up his first single with a video a week later, we’re expecting the same flow for his new track, in which JMSN reminds us of the importance of having ends (cash money $$$).
JMSN self titled album is available for preorder on itunes and you can hear Ends below.
Moon Vibez Music Fest: Artist Intro's + Performances
Last weekend we had the pleasure of attending Chasity Londyn’s (pictured above) Moon Vibez Music Fest, featuring tons of up and coming artists, from or currently residing in Los Angeles, pursuing their dreams. The positive energy swept the space and was accompanied by stellar performances, which began on the second floor deck but were later moved indoors thanks to the Venice Beach breeze. A mass of music lovers and culture vultures appeared fashionably late and the already uninhibited energy from the artists became infectious amongst the crowd.
If you breezed in early enough the 10 dollar entry fee got you almost 8 hours worth of music, food, alcohol, sugary treats and the company of quite an eclectic and stimulating group.
Checkout the creator Chasity Londyn’s breakdown of what Moon Vibez is all about, artist introductions, performances and candid photos below.
You’re probably wondering exactly what we mean by “Bananas are the fast food of fruit.” Bananas are healthy right? Not quite.Yes, they’re a good source of fiber and potassium but you probably didn’t know that Bananas are high in sugar. The Cavendish, the type of banana we're most familiar with, Per 100-gram serving contains more sugar than soda (12 grams to 9 grams). A consistent diet of Bananas doesnt seem all that innocent any more, specially if your sugar intake is something you’re concerned about.
BJ TCK delivers a refreshing new track, with an old feel. Full of soulful jazz vibes, BJ breaks down the soul of a woman, singing about all the things that make her who she is today; from the smile on her face, to her source of strength. BJ has been building quite the buzz lately and if he continues to show his ability to make music that appeals to the current generation and touch the listeners with old souls, he will be a household name in no time.
Whether you’re a guy or a girl, one thing is for sure: you know the lyrics or at least some of the chorus to an N'Sync song by heart. The boy band, which consisted of Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick, Lance Bass and Joey Fatone had plenty of unforgettable tunes. These tunes are also a form of nostalgia, as it provokes many brains to reflect on what can be called, “the good old days.” You’ve got to admit, that was indeed an awesome era!
Selecting Kasey Stokes for our “Photographer Spotlight” series was a no brainer, he’s a Los Angeles based photographer that respects the art of photography, he’s good at it, has worked with some amazing people and yet remains gracious and humble. Recently graduating Cal State Northridge, with a BFA in Art-Photography, Kasey is ready to use his abilities with the camera to take his life to new levels. See how he responded to our feature questions.

Did You Know it's Illegal To Send Work Emails After 6 P.M. In France?
If you ever thought about moving out of the country, you should highly consider France as your new location. Employers’ federations and unions have signed a new, legally binding labour agreement that will require staff to not send work related emails after 6pm. This new law forces individuals to leave work at work.
