On my recent trip to New York city I had the pleasure of interviewing the man behind all of my B.E.T. 106 and Park success, stylist Kwasi Kessie. This is my first Kings Inspire Kings video which videographer Derrick Woodyard captured this short but insightful interview from one male stylist to another. Check out the video as it displays our brief discussion about his success, styling and his thoughts about my Kings Rule Together line. - K.R.T.
“On the hunt for Danny Fox”
HyLo Boutiques brings you the culminating event of this month’s urban excursions. A scavenger hunt for calligraphy artist and jewelry designer Danny Fox. Danny Fox has a stunning collection of industrial sterling silver rings. A master of his craft, Danny can spend hours designing in his South Philly studio oasis. But he also has an itch to explore the urban playground that lies outside his door.
Hylo Boutiques and Danny invites you to seek him out at his favorite local spots Saturday, March 31 through Sunday, April 1 for instant rewards and chances to win big prizes from our participants—from tees to rings to lunch for two! Here’s how to play:
1. Visit participating businesses Saturday, March 31- Sunday, April 1 for a reward when you drop the name Danny Fox at the register.
2. Snap a photo of the #dannyfox icon at each location and tweet it @HyLoBoutiques using the hashtag #dannyfox to be entered into the raffle for insanely cool prizes from our merchants. Each tweet counts as a separate raffle entry.
3. Hit as many of the locations as you can and tweet a photo of each @HyLoBoutiques. The more photos we receive from you, the higher your odds of winning the prize.
This past Friday host of B.E.T.’s 106 and Park Terrance J was wearing the K.R.T. Limited edition black “Fatigue” hoodie on their popular freestyle Friday segment. This is now his third time he has been seen wearing the brand thanks to stylist Kwasi Kessi. He styled the hoodie with the Air Jordan IX “Olives” which are not due to be released until 11/2012. You can purchase this item for a short time period HERE. – K.R.T.
One of the guest on the show was west coast “Bay” area ambassador E 40
(Picture) I had the pleasure of watching the show live. This was my first time at 106 and Park and I didn’t want to be in the crowd so they let me watch from the v.i.p. section which isn’t really v.i.p. because i had to stand the entire time. Nonetheless It was an awesome experience.
Arts, Beats & Eats is a monthly networking mixer in the city of Philadelphia that contributes to the well being of society, through health initiatives and community service efforts. Shaheed Rucker, Gianni Lee and I have been implementing this event since May 2010. It has grown stupendously in the Tri-state area as one of the must highly attended networking events for the young creative entrepreneurs. We have teamed up with Lauren Tilghman and Danielle Jeter to help further pursue our Arts, Beats and Eats goals into 2012.
Arts, Beats & Eats is an event where individuals can grow both personally and professionally. Monthly themes focus on “giving back” through toy, book, clothing and food drives. Other themes have focused on educating our guests on health, political and social ills that plague our community. Our event allows individuals to enjoy live art, spoken word, and fine music while shopping from different local vendors.
This month’s theme is Mind, Body, and Soul. Where we will present some of the best Artist, Models, Photographers and Designers.
****PLEASE NOTE LOCATION CHANGE*** The event takes place at North by Northwest located at 7165 Germantown Ave, on April 1st from 7pm-11pm.
Young 13 year old superstar Jaden Smith (Son of Philadelphia native Will Smith) recently took a picture wearing the Limited Edition salmon K.R.T. King hoodie. Looks as though he was impressed and took a picture in his trailer which he is currently shooting a new film with his father called ” After Earth” and decided to share it with his millions of fans by sharing his new hoodie on Instagram. Maybe Jaden could be the spoke person for my K.R.T. Kids line coming soon, stay tune! – K.R.T.
