This past Thursday, March 15th New York was in full effect as music bumped throughout Stereo. Hip-Hop heavyweights like Just Blaze, DJ Soul, & Clark Kent contributed to the musical landscape as they held down the 1s and 2s. Folks from Lemar & Dauley, Alife, Laced Magazine, Stacks & Bundles, Kilo Goods, Belchez, Scott On The Rocks, Flight Club, A.L.I.E.N., Nom De Guerre and more were in attendence. And performances from Kanye West and Lupe Fiasco solidified that this event was Big Business.
The event was to kick-off the US Launch of Japanese brand, SWAGGER. SWAGGER founders Big O and Iggy were in attendence with the rest of the SWAGGER family, to celebrate what is only the beginning to bringing the swagger back to the streets of the U.S. (By the amount of times I've just mentioned SWAGGER, I think it's clear that we love SWAGGER...haha)

They're Baaaaaaaackkk!!! Everybody has been wondering "What's going on with Laced Magazine?" And they've been simply replying, "Patience is a Virtue." And virtuous they are, with the 3rd issue of Laced Magazine. They hit us with a one-two punch, a fire & ice double cover issue. Next they hit us with an uppercut, upping the number of pages to 120. Then for the knockout they unload on us with features from The Clipse, Ice Cream Skate Team, Pharrell Williams, The Pack, Bodega, Creative Recreation, and pages upon pages of products galore...Sheesh!!!
Did I ever mention to you that it's an independent minority owned publication, in a growing competitive market. These guys are going against publications like Complex, Mass Appeal, and more. Show your support and pick up the issue.
New issue will be stocked at your favorite retailer come March 28th. Cop one or the other, or you can be gungho about it and cop both.
