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.

J Dilla documentary from Stussy

The Stussy tribute film of J Dilla's musical rise is screening tomorrow night as part of the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival.

This film was released in Febuary 2010 as part of Stussy's celebration of hip hop producer and rapper James "J Dilla" Yancey. Stussy released a limited edition t-shirt produced in conjunction with Stones Throw and the Dilla Estate.
"Stussy and Stones Throw Records have partnered for Raph Rashid's classic pic of J Dilla on a limited-edition Stussy Tee. 

The photo was taken by Raph Rashid in Dilla's L.A. dining room-turned-studio, summer 2005, for his book Behind The Beat: Hip-Hop Home Studios*."

* the book is out of print, but you can get a new copy on Amazon for....$2,499!
