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.

Hip-hop for Obama

Not one of Obama's best interviews, but he named Jay Z's "American Gangster" as a great story. He talks about "they", but when did you ever hear the next president (senator at the time of the interview) talking about hip-hop as an artform?! Even if change isn't here, politics has definitely taken a refresher course in what the people want.

And for this coming week's inauguration aka party time, the hip-hop heads are celebrating with parties across the country. If you're traveling to Washington D.C. check these out.

The Stussy DC Chapter in conjunction with Commonwealth and rappers Wale and Bun B are hosting a "Historic" inauguration party on Monday January 19th from 6pm-9pm. Pass through and your have a chance to cop a Stussy DC limited edition commemorative t-shirt.
