LOS ANGELES, CA (Aug. 17, 2014) – Elite men’s streetwear brand Post Game Outfitters has teamed up with Harlem street ball legend Pee Wee Kirkland to release an exclusive time capsule fashion collaboration. The premium capsule, made up of one-of-a-kind hoodies, crewneck shirts, jerseys, hats and more, will be unveiled at the AGENDA Trade Show on Monday, Aug. 18th, Tuesday, Aug. 19th and Wednesday, Aug. 20th at Booth #H-12 inside The Sands Expo Center located at 201 Sands Avenue in Las Vegas, Nevada.

 

The unique and quality collection, made with the finest of materials, pays homage to the amazing street ball feats Pee Wee Kirkland achieved during his unprecedented reign in the prime years of the Rucker basketball league in Harlem, New York in the ‘70’s. The capsule of “Time Pieces” including the “Pee Wee Mesh Crew,” “Bank of Harlem Tee,” “The Crown Hat,” and “Legend Basketball Jersey,” all signify defining moments in Kirkland’s life as a superior athlete and big time hustler in his prime. Each design was inspired by an era in which Pee Wee Kirkland pioneered and maintained superior influence on how to dress back in the day. Kirkland was one of the first high rollers back in his heyday to go see fashion emporium creator Dapper Dan in the ‘70s. The custom prints, styles and trends that were set by Harlem and Uptown’s hustlers at the time, are being reinvented with this premium capsule.

GRAMMY-NOMINATED SINGER AND SONGWRITER ERIC ROBERSON RELEASES HIS TENTH STUDIO ALBUM, “THE BOX”

 

“THE BOX” TOUR TRAVELING TO MORE THAN 25 U.S. CITIES AND 2 COUNTRIES

 

 

August 11, 2014, New York, New York — Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter ERIC ROBERSON will release his 10th studio album, The Box, on August 12th.  With a 25-city tour and rigorous media and performance schedule, this ‘out of the box’ creative is ready to show the world what he has in store this time around. Eric has been dubbed “the FIRST singer to release an album independently” and his peers have unofficially named him a pioneer because of this feat. Eric is an amazing singer and performer but has written songs for and collaborated with such artists as: Jill Scott, Musiq Soulchild and DJ Jazzy Jeff. 

 

The Box pays homage to the first place Eric learned to appreciate music: at home.  Eric comes from a musical family and his sister’s boombox AKA The Box quickly became the family centerpiece of entertainment.  At first, he began to listen and study the musical sounds he was hearing and would sit in his room and flip through record after record of musical artists from different genres:  hip-hop, gospel, soul, jazz, rock and whatever else he could find in the stack of albums. Different genres of music taught Eric about musicianship, songwriting and performance.  The first time he heard Commissioned, he was emotionally moved by the lyrics. Listening and watching Stevie Wonder taught Eric about musicianship and production and Tribe Called Quest made Eric instantly say to himself, “This is the way music should be” at the age of 15.   To this day, Eric still loves to incorporate a combination and mash up of all of these musical flavors he heard as a child with The Box.

MEAL PREP: THE ANSWER TO THE WINTER BULGE

July 30, 2014 Leave a comment

As the Summer moves on and the Winter rolls in, soon those that worked hard for that Summer body may start to store those winter pounds.  Here is my personal tips on Meal Prep and maintaining that positive weight as a lifestyle and not just as a seasonal goal.  Taking the time to do meal prep for the week is a great way to save money, time, and to keep you from eating out as much. The first thing you need to do is figure out the best day to prepare for your week.  Other factors that need to be considered, which meals are you planning for, your grocery list, and tupperware containers. Make sure the containers has enough room for a 4 to 5 oz (fist size) protein portion (chicken or turkey patty), a section for your veggies, you can’t forget a section for your good carbs and finally make sure the containers are freezer safe. Determining which meal you are prepping for is going to aid in your grocery list. So you will need a prep time of about 2 hrs once you have all ingredients in the kitchen and ready to cook. Here is a list of foods that you are going to need: Read more…
