IX Podcast 05: JPolo

IX Podcast 05: JPolo

We first found out about JPolo over the summer. His Aquahub EP (available here), filled with proper instrumental hip-hop beats, jazzy synth sounds and underwater vibes (further described here), would charm both the newly and the most initiated. We're talking waves here. They hit you like a soft breeze. That is not to say JPolo is afraid of true hard-hitting hip-hop. It is the way he blends his own mellow sound with today's rugged trap music that will surprise you.

Charlton Diaz x Sam Moukhaiber

Something about the JPolo sound made us want to showcase another very worthy URL talent. Tumblr-sphere artist, established male model and aspirant music producer Charlton Diaz agreed to provide artwork for this podcast. We invite you to visit his blog and check out his recent collaboration "ACCESS_BOY" with photographer Sam Moukhaiber.

    Urban Outfitters isn’t a stranger to controversy. Whether it’s the Eat Less shirt, stealing designer’s ideas, or placing “Obama/Black” as a colour selection, Urban Outfitters knows how to stir the pot. Their newest fashion faux-pas is what looks like a blood spattered sweater. This is a pretty disturbing style for UO to go for, considering how most of their sales seem to be jumpers and hats previously worn by Johnny Depp. What a lot of folks might not know is that the sweater more controversial...

Fans of Hip Hop can look forward to seeing MC's like Common, Jay Electronica, Bobby Shmurda, T.I., Teeflii and Mike WILL Made-It amongst the performers according to a press release.

    Since no man knows exactly what if feels like to be a woman, I will try my best to simulate the experience for you step by step. Don't worry- I'll spare you the detail. I have a sensitive gag reflex. ACT I : Scene I It's the week before your period. First you have to smoke about 3 joints. Consecutively. 3 toke. Pass it to the left. Wait about 20 minutes then proceed to devour the contents of your fridge in its entirety. Your fridge is empty? Just pretend someone gave you their Costco Card....

        A Christian rap album which is appropriately titled Anomaly has topped the Billboard 200 album chart. Christian rapper Lecrae, who was in Toronto this past weekend, claimed the number 1 spot on the charts and marks a rare feat as very few Christian albums have ever topped the Billboard 200 album chart. The rapper managed to move 88,000 units of his new album which was enough to dethrone last week's chart toppers Maroon 5. Maroon 5's album V came in second with 80,000 copies sold...

    Being vegan or vegetarian is an extraordinary feat. I commend you on your efforts. Specifically, those vegans that know their shit- the ones who don't have anemia because they actually bothered to do some research on protein replacement. The ones who aren't doing it because they watched Bambi and now they need to lose 10 pounds so they figure eating celery for breakfast lunch and din din will do the trick.   Then they wake up one morning with blood in their poop. Have a Cliff bar, it...
