Stevio...LA LA Lovin' It?

I'm British-born Chinese from Bristol, UK. I’m LA-based. I’m a hip hop aficionado. After 15 years in London I moved to LA to pursue a new career and outlook on life.

Back in the 80s I was a DJ. In the 90s I contributed to the world's first street style exhibition at London's Victoria & Albert Museum. In 2011, I had my first interviews published. Today, I’m keeping busy with music, art, photos and writing.

Old skool...directed by Va$htie

Have you seen Vashtie's video for a Kanye West mixtape tune called "Us Placers" sampling Thom Yorke's "The Eraser". Of course, I did a bit of a search as I heard she's hoooot ;). I found a few pics online and this Armand van Helden video. Inspired by old skool hip hop the video features an adidas Run DMC sweatshirt I have in my collection and adidas remixed last year replacing the word "adidas" with "Power" - why I have no idea!? My adidas, yo! Love it!

Apart from directing videos, Vashtie's day job *was* creative director at urban record label, Def Jam, where Jay-Z is CEO until he retires that post to go back to being an artist and entrepreneur. I read that she's given that up to do videos and stuff. (I also read that she's no longer seeing Pharell). Of course I've linked to her blog and MySpace.
