Gear Review: Gonzo Mesh

0 - Published November 7, 2013 by in Gear, Gear Reviews, Mesh, Stringing

We got a nice little package at LAS HQ a few weeks back with 4 preformed Gonzo Mesh pieces (2 white, 2 glow-in-the-dark). “Gonzo Mesh is a special coated mesh covered in a secret recipe of ingredients that makes it superior to traditional soft or hard mesh pieces in every aspect. Traditional mesh pieces bag out and become inconsistent and unusable in the elements. Wax mesh pieces tent to lost their wax coating in a rapid fashion.”

Music Monday: No Gods

0 - Published November 4, 2013 by in The Life

First up we have a new track from a Seattle duo we featured a couple months back. Shelton Harris and Tyler Dopps just dropped a brand new song and as usual, it’s nothing short of great. It’s clear that Shelton Harris and Tyler Dopps always put 110% into everything they release. From solid production to lyrics, every song is on point.

Music Monday: Because The Internet

0 - Published October 28, 2013 by in The Life

Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino is making yet another appearance on Music Monday. We first brought Gambino to you back when his hit “Freaks and Geeks” blew up. CG is causing a buzz once again and this time we have a few tracks from his upcoming album, Because the Internet. The album is currently scheduled for a Dec. 10 release. This marks Gambino’s first project since he dropped his Royalty mixtape on July 4th of last year. Gambino can give us a typical hip-hop banger like “Worldstar” or a track with a mellower tone but one thing is certain; his wordplay never falters.

If you’re a dedicated lacrosse player, odds are you’re putting in a decent amount of time on the wall. You’ll probably be scooping the occasional groundball off the pavement or hard packed dirt. These rough surfaces will eventually take a toll on your scoop and topstring. In order to keep your topstring from completely fraying and giving out on you, we have a great little Lax Hack from Justin at Stylin Strings.

Music Monday: Tacos on Broadway

This week’s Music Monday brings us yet another gem from the Pacific Northwest. Seattle lyricists Tiglo and Cole better known as Brothers From Another or BFA for short are a young duo hailing from Seattle. The Seattle Hip-Hop scene is quite impressive and BFA brings an “easy going flavor of the mid 90′s while maintaining a new school attitude in their lyrics.” The two have managed to put out 6 EP’s to date and only have a bright future ahead of them.

Music Monday: Soul Brother #2

0 - Published October 7, 2013 by in The Life

This week’s Music Monday focuses on an artist that is living in the shadows. Kendrick Lamar has virtually become a household name after the success of his highly acclaimed album good kid, m.A.A.d. city, and his now infamous “Control” verse. Kendrick, formerly known as K. Dot, is a member of Black Hippy, a group comprised of ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock, and Ab-Soul, all of which are on the indie label Top Dawg Entertainment. While many people are tuned into Kendrick, the talented Ab-Soul aka “The Black Lip Pastor” is easily overlooked.

Lax Hacks: Saving Your Butt

0 - Published September 28, 2013 by in Gear, Lax Hacks, The Life

This simple Lax Hack will keep your shaft from “cookie cuttering” your rubber end cap. Personally I don’t use rubber butt ends anymore but I used to use this trick to keep my shafts from ripping apart the rubber and exposing the metal. Not only is an uncovered butt end dangerous but it’s also illegal and you’ll be putting your team at risk for an unnecessary penalty.

This week’s Music Monday is a trip. Last Friday I visited the moon via the “Cud Life Tour” featuring Logic, Big Sean, and Kid Cudi. While Kid Cudi isn’t a new name in music, he is relevant as ever. The Man on the Moon put on a show and certainly lived up to his name. It was the complete experience.

Music Monday: The Myke B Show

This week’s Music Monday spotlights a really slept on artist I’ve been meaning to share for a while now, Myke Bogan. Last week Myke opened for Zion I and Snoop Dogg in Boise and to be honest, I was most excited to see Myke B. What’s really appealing about the Portland rapper is that he’s a laid back but motivated individual with a genuine love for Hip-Hop. I’ve chosen a song from each of his three mixtapes so take a listen.
