KNYEW featured on 702.TV

A few months ago, around February or March, the KNYEW team was filmed by Voja Radosavljevic and Emily Gimmel for a video piece they were going to feature on the site www.702.tv. Some time had passed and me and the fellas totally forgot about whole taping until Voja hit me up earlier this week letting me know that it was finally done and going to air on Channel 14 (Vegas TV) tonight night, June 25th at 10:30pm. The video is also featured on their site www.702.tv as well as www.LasVegasWeekly.com (the online site for Las Vegas Weekly Magazine). My favorite part has to be the footage of Neva aka Black Panda folding t-shirts and Kenn's jolly ass stocking new eras on the shelves...hahahaha, check it out.

The Hundreds were also cool enough to showcase our video piece on their site today at www.TheHundreds.com. Big up to David & Bobby at The Hundreds, goodlooking fellas.

MIXTAPE MONDAYS: Michael Jackson Tributes

I know it's been a minute since I posted a new mix for "Mixtape Mondays" but in light of Michael Jackson's passing, I had to lace you guys with these great tributes. This man had an extensive catalog of music beyond his "Off The Wall" & "Thriller" albums and these amazing mixtapes by DJ Jaycee of The Aphilliates, DJ Ayres of The Rub, DJ MOS from NYC, DJ J-Rocc of the Beat Junkies & the legendary DJ Premier showcase alot of Michael Jackson's earlier work before his contract with Epic (when The Jackson 5 became The Jacksons). Check'em out and enjoy...Crooked signing out.

R.I.P. Michael Jackson

Its hard to believe and I don't think any of us wanted to believe it. I was hoping TMZ and all these other blog sites were full of shit and this crazy rumor of Michael Jackson passing was a hoax. Unfortunately, the truth is that the King of Pop is dead. I can't help but think about MJ's last days and how we, his fans, never properly celebrated his career. In the end, he was the pinnacle of music entertainment. He conquered all realms of music whether it be through studio recordings, live performances or music videos. We'll miss you MJ...much love and respect from all of us at KNYEW.

Here's one of my favorite Michael Jackson moments when he performed for "Sammy Davis Jr's Tribute" special.

One of Neva's favorite Michael Jackson moments was his performance at The Motown 25th Anniversary when he performed "Billie Jean" after his set with The Jacksons.

Kenny's favorite Michael Jackson moment was his performance at Superbowl XXVII in 1993.

Many thanks to Jordan and the rest of the Free Gold Watch crew from doing an amazing job printing up our "KNYEW x SKAM' tees. Remember, they're dropping this Tuesday, June 30th...
