Illest producer of the month – 2Late

2late is an up and coming Hip Hop producer from Croydon. He specializes in that dope ass shit. Most of his inspiration coming from the likes of JDilla, Eric Sermon, Redman, Artifacts and many other 90’s dons. The work he is creating at the moment is really impressive and is bringing that real sound back, brushing off all these wack producers in the process. Check out 2LATETHEDON channel on youtube for exclusive instrumentals and look out for collab album with Cracker Jon – Dilusional Crackerz plus EP coming soon ft Bill Shakes.

Beautiful Pencil Paintings by Rajacenna

Today I have a selection with beautiful paintings, made by 17 year old Rajacenna (DeviantArt), a very talented pencil artist from the Netherlands. In the summer of 2009 she started with pencil portrait drawing. She instantly was discovered and approached by an American publisher with a request to publish her work in ‘Amazing pencil portraits 2‘. This book contains realistic pencil portrait drawings created by some of the most gifted artists in the world. Rajacenna never took any drawing lessons and is a natural drawing artist…

Cartoons Invade Reality

Combo (aka Culture Kidnapper) rudely awakens us by his startling images. “You take a picture, you add something that has nothing to do with it, and immediately it tells something else,” he says. For Combo, cartoons allowed him to create an alternate universe or a challenging view of our reality.

“Pictures are part of our everyday life,” he tells us, “we are exposed to thousands everyday and they barely mean something. By adding cartoons in the picture I chose, I want people to have a closer look at the picture than we would normally. I find it interesting to pick innocent pictures from cartoons to talk about serious and scary issues.

“The characters in the cartoons are really simple and they embody a value: it is very Manichean, there are the goodies and the baddies. The personality attributes of the characters (greed, anger, naivety…) at the same time helps the viewer get the meaning of the picture, and offers another way to read it.”
