Death Of…

April 17, 2008

Freaknik…
I remember hearing my older cousins tell me stories about how much fun they had at Freaknik. I always wanted to go just to experience it. By me staying in Atl, I already know how much fun it was just from my experiences down here now, So I can only imagine.

RIP Freaknik 1982-1999…Killed by Hatin’ Police officers.

No Limit really brought a lot to the game, but one of the most memorable things that they brought (at least to me) was there unique style of doing album covers. You always knew a No Limit album when you seen it in the stores, and you could almost bet there would be some “diamond” studded text somewhere on it. As an artist/designer I really pay a lot of attention to branding and marketing and I think that No Limit did a very good job in their heyday. I don’t even know what killed this….oh yea now I remember…

With the upcoming redesign of the site and the blog I will be having special features that highlight things that go on in Popular culture and the urban world around us. First up is the “Death Of…” feature. This category will have special posts that are dedicated to things that just went out of style, or got “played out”.

First up on the list is….
