Jermaine Dupri held a celebration for the release of his new watch line Nu Pop at Wish in Atlanta. JD has collaborated with renowned jeweler Pascal Mouaward to create eclectic, innovative and affordable watches that are reflective of pop culture. The pieces were an instant hit with celebrity guests that included actor Lance Gross, Eva Marcille, Johnta Austin, Big Boi, Kenny Burns and more. I give Jermaine credit for trying something new and with the recession the product being affordable is a big advantage. Enjoy the pics and oh yeah Eva is bad! sandals
Yesterday we shared the news that Big Boi of OutKast will be joining Phantogram, a duo he discovered via a pop-up ad. The trio, known simply as Big Grams, will be dropping an EP on September 25th via Epic. It'll feature Run the Jewels and Skrillex. And today they're sharing "Fell in the Sun," the first teaser from the project. It's a fine number; there's a funky backdrop with thick drums, and Big Boi rapping like Pimp C, kinda. The hook, sung by Sarah Barthel of Phantogram, is serviceable, but is ultimately missing a lil' something extra to put it over for a win. Overall, this is a decent first showing from Big Grams. But, we're all patiently waiting the arrival of the Run the Jewels cut, which should happen any day now. Peep "Fell in the Sun" after the jump.
Big Boi is teaming up with a group simply known as Phantogram, who Boi allegedly discovered on a pop-up ad. Interesting. The trio of Big Boi and Phantogram (Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel) is slated to release their debut project, an EP, entitled Big Grams. The track list is short, as expected with an EP, but it features two huge acts: Run the Jewels and Skrillex. Polarizing features, I know. But you'll be giving this a shot once it drops on September 25th via Epic. Check out the track listing after the jump, folks.
Today, Governors Ball announced its 2014 lineup and it looks like the rumors are true; Outkast will headline more than one festival this summer.
