Recently myself and hometown stylist Simone Alexis Webb reconnected on social media a few months ago, after I saw she shared a link from FlagantCity.com on her Facebook page. I offered her many thanks, as I do with everyone I can who shares our content from Flagrant City or BuffaLowe PR, that I see on social media. I met Simone a few years ago, in passing, through my boy Rashaad Holley, (who used to work at the local brand, Fresh Dogs Clothing Company) at her friend Sheritta’s apartment. This was at our old college, the University at Buffalo (SUNY), one cold winter night in the Queen City of Buffalo, prior to me moving to California in November 2011.
I haven’t kept up with Simone until recently but she’s been doing some great things back in my hometown over the years. From styling, customizing accessories and her dope online clothing boutique, Acid Cupcakes just releasing their fall line, for which she styled and photographed!
Check out the UK based blog, Look At My Black Beauty‘s where they featured and interviewed with Simone. They discuss fashion tips for this crisp fall season, future plans for her brands and she shares her current successes!
At her performance last Sunday, September 27th, 2015 in Buffalo, NY, Neo-Soul singer Drea D’Nur premiered a 1-minute trailer of her new visual to accompany her track “Break Me Down,” which will be released officially on October 23rd, 2015.
According to Drea “This video (directed by Wale of Odua Productions) highlights the Spirit of Resilience of our people as personified through powerful dance and rebelling some of the most heartbreaking stories of this past year.”
Watch the trailer below and check out Drea performing later this month in Buffalo, alongside VERSE for their Neo-Soul Tuesdays at DBGB’s on October 20th!
World premiere of the lead single, entitled “Stocky,” off the upcoming album Spread, by Deuce Ellis. Deuce is a Buffalo-born, Brooklyn-raised emcee who decided to take us on a journey through trippy-land NYC, with a giant white bunny and some bad broad to boot.
Look out for Spread releasing exclusively on Flagrant City very soon.
