  Bronx corespondent The Kid Mero along with Noisey just dropped this funny ass video where Big Mer- goes to a Pig Destroyer show (never heard of em either) to learn about mosh pit/ metal culture. what ensues is a seminal educational video for anyone who's never had their nose broken while slamdancing (*throwback word of the week). My favorite part of the video is when Mero flawlessly executes the Dougie in the pit, all the while dipped in Boro from head to toe, game changer right there.

  In 1982, Raiders owner Al Davis beat the NFL in court and moved his team from Oakland to Los Angeles. With a squad as colorful as its owner, the Raiders captivated a large number of black and Hispanic fans in L.A. at a time when gang warfare, immigration and the real estate boom were rapidly changing the city. The L.A. Raiders morphed into a worldwide brand as the team's colors, swagger and anti-establishment ethos became linked with the hip-hop scene that was permeating South Central Los Angeles. Rapper-turned-filmmaker Ice Cube was not only witness to this evolution, he was also a part of it. As a member of the notorious rap group N.W.A, Ice Cube helped make the silver and black culturally significant to a new generation and demographic. Still a die-hard Raiders fan, Cube will explore the unlikely marriage between the NFL's rebel franchise and America's glamour city and show how pro football's outlaw team became the toast of La La Land.

  As the owner of legendary hotspots like The Limelight, Tunnel, Palladium, and Club USA, Peter Gatien was considered by many as the undisputed king of the 1980s New York City club scene. The Ontario native, whose trademark eye patch made him stand out in a crowd, built and oversaw a chain of nightclub ventures that brought thousands of patrons per night during its peak years. However, after years of legal battles and police pressure spearheaded by Mayor Rudolph Giuliani's drive to crack down on the city's nightlife scene during the mid-1990s, Gatien was deported to Canada, bringing an end to his presence and influence in the city's nightlife scene. The documentary features interviews with numerous people involved in the club's scene, as well as key informants in Gatien's high-profile trial. Produced by Gatien's daughter, Jen, and Alfred Spellman, and directed by Billy Corben (who previously directed the film Cocaine Cowboys), the film documents the rise and fall of Gatien and his nightclub empire.

 Vans Made Of Canvas

  NEW YORK, NY (April 3, 2012) . Jonathan LeVine Gallery is pleased to announce In Praise of Rust, a series of new oil paintings on panel by New York-based artist Kevin Cyr, in what will be his first solo exhibition at the gallery.In Praise of Rust features paintings of old vehicles seen on the streets of New York.primarily vans and commercial delivery trucks.covered in graffiti, rust, scratches, scuffs, dents and other marks of distinction. Cyr includes a meticulous level of detail in his portrait-like representations with devoted attention to every imperfection and sign of age. Removing the context of the urban landscape, he places a strong focus on his subjects by isolating them in fields of flat, solid color.The neglected appearance and utilitarian function of these vans carry a bit of nostalgia. Once ubiquitous in large urban cities, they have now become far more rare, replaced by heavily branded box trucks. In the artist.s words, .painting them is my way of documenting a grit that is slowly disappearing from New York. In a culture where people are lured by the appeal of status-enhancing symbols, I find so much character in derelict vans. I have always been interested in painting vehicles that have defined the evolution of the American landscape..On the subject of his exhibition title, Cyr says .Rust serves as a good metaphor for this series, a symbol for deterioration and decay. The meaning also changes slightly when used as an adjective, as in: to become .rusty. or impaired through inaction or disuse..Common themes in Cyr.s larger body of work have included mobility, sustainability and self-reliance. Referencing consumer culture and the fuel/energy crisis, these paintings offer a subtle commentary on how rapidly the technology of our generation becomes perceived as obsolete, amid an increasingly unstable and uncertain climate of economic and environmental issues.

  The american network VH1 and legendary rapper Ice T have teamed up to make "Planet Rock: The Story of Crack and the Hip-Hop". The film, which premiered yesterday takes in-depth at how crack cocaine affected the hip hop recording industry, or to be more precise: the first documentary to focus specifically on the connections between crack and hip-hop. This means prostitutes detailing how they got caught up in the trade, dead bodies found in crackhouses, and according to the press release “Ricky Ross talking about discovering crack production like Grandmaster Flash talks about discovering crossfading". Watch after the jump.

 The Two Escobars

  Pablo Escobar was the richest, most powerful drug kingpin in the world, ruling the Medellín Cartel with an iron fist. Andres Escobar was the biggest soccer star in Colombia. The two were not related, but their fates were inextricably-and fatally-intertwined.

  There's nothing better than being able to go on Youtube drunk at 4 in the morning and having every Ant Banks song ever recorded at your fingertips. That being said there's still something to be said for good old fashion hissing cassette tapes.

  I been checking for my dude Mero since he was slayin mid westerners on the 12oz Prophet forums. So it goes without saying that I was amped when we started talkin about doing a lil collaboration with him... For those that aint up on the fly Bronx shit, Mero has been draping heads with #knowledge about everything from the average man's life struggles down to how to handle smoking dust without endin mooshing cops in the face. All this via his blog victorylight but more importantly through his twitter account @thekidmero. He wrote us a nice literary gem about the hardships of trying to get your own business/hustle. Read it after the jump.

 The Original Montreal Bomber
   WRITTEN BY Benny Ill | March 10, 2012 | 13 COMMENTS
   
  There was once a time in Montreal when writers could be counted on two hands. When you were more likely to come across a "anglos go home" than a straight letter. Way before designer paint and shipped to your door fat caps existed, people still somehow managed to go out and write on stuff. Right around that time a kid known as Sike migrated from France and revolutionized Montreal's graffiti scene. Him and his crew took the city by storm and paved the way for a new generation of bombers. Even though his stay in Montreal was cut short, his influence can still be felt 15 years later.
