Obey the Giant





For anyone who has been following Shepard Fairey's court case in Boston, we're pleased to learn that a resolution has finally been reached. Shepard was originally facing 34 felony charges with a maximum penalty of 87 years in jail, but his attorney negotiated a plea deal for him to plead guilty to three misdemeanors and get two years probation and a fine in exchange for all the other charges being dropped. "



The artist said, "Considering the tremendous waste of time and money so far, this solution seemed the most productive to end a process which could have dragged on considerably and potentially resulted in jail time if things did not go well for me. I’m glad to put this behind me so I can focus on making art and the other positive things in my life. I have no negative feelings toward Boston, my ICA show has been an incredible success with over 100,000 people attending. I’d like to thank the ICA staff who have been great to work with, and also all the Boston property owners who invited me to display my work on their properties."


Shepard will be back in Boston on July 31 for OBEY Experiment Redux, celebrating the success of the artist's first museum exhibition. After the exhibition closes on 8/16 in Boston, the 20 year survey of Shepard Fairey's work will then be traveling to the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh.

FUCK YEAH! I didn't get my legs inked for nothing!

I'm thinkin'...I'd wear her booze havin', cigg smeLLin', bottled crack smoke scents proudly! Aces for Amy.

Mothergreen in time of need.

Our ancestors are calling on us to respond to what they describe as a time of awakening and great understanding. I, a follower and strong believer in the Mayan ways, have been reading up on "The Shift of the Ages"
Many cultures believe that we're in the process of shifting to a new Sun or a new World. Various stories and scriptures detail about these predictions.

The Shift of the Ages is a film project described as a step out of time which takes a look through the indigenous lens to focus on whats transpiring in the world today. It's a shamanic rite of passage and grassroots effort to raise awareness for Mother Earth in her time of need. It's more than just a movie - it's a movement.

ALEX PARDEE // CAGE

Alex Pardee, done did again! Not only does he have a new gallery coming soon "frolicking nightmares" but he killed it with his art work for Cage's new album "Depart from Me." Shit is honestly dope. I absolutely love Pardee's style, his stuff is almost lively. Big time fan. Cage's album dropped July 7th, if you don't already have it; stop reading this and get going! "I Never Knew You" is one of my favorite tracks featured on tha CD. Shia LaBeouf directed this video and also represents Cage as a teenager. It also features other Definitive Jux artists like: Yak Balls, Aesop Rock & El-P.








"Im so in over my head I've learned to breathe in it
Your eyes are screaming and you're saying "no baby" to me
If there was a way out I think you would've taken it.
My hands and arms are the only way that you can leave
Face to face for the first time, you feel what I'm feeling..
Selfishly no longer breathing because of me."

Check out his other work as well...

The Perfect verse over a dope beat.

Saturday, Eileen, Grace and myself ventured to West Babylon to kick it off for Dani, the body piercer at House of Colour - for his birthday Bash. Mission accomplished if you will. This event included the following: beer, food, Dj Tanner, endless laughs, robot dances moves, good music, bouncy castle and freestyles by your girl Grace! Risin high at 5 feet, my baby girl Grace has definitely got what it takes to rock the mic! In her vintage dress and opera magnified glasses, this little mama had flow. Everyone was awesome, I had a blast. Alex, Number 2 and even Sal came out too. Here are a few shots, that captured this night. Happy Birthday Dani!

"You're the ultimate Robot!" Grace & I. Note the kid Paul haten on our robot dance! He was saying "Are you really doing the Robot?!" As i kept doopin' him, I informed him that as you well know..."ROBOTS DANCE ALONE!" I later found out, that in a strange twist of events, Paul in fact was a fan of my robot! It is pretty standard for Grace and I to do the robot at such events...however, this groups reactions was most excellent!
