We are always happy to answer the call of our automotive friends to fly across the United States to check out their newest products so when Toyota calls, The Industry Cosign answers. Our recent trip to La Jolla, California proved that much thought has gone into creating the Prius c with many changes and upgrades added since the first generation Prius launched in the US in 2000. This includes the fact that the Prius c is lighter and more fuel efficient than its predecessor.
On this trip, we were able to take the Prius c for a spin. The letter “c” for this model represents “city” and who better a target audience than younger, eco-conscious buyers? Bob Carter, Group VP of U.S. Sales for Toyota says that, “The Prius c is targeted at young singles and couples and is the gateway vehicle for the Prius Family.” And, with the Prius c One starting out at just under $19K, this is an affordable car that offers maximum use of interior space, the best MPG (53) of any car without a plug and one heck of a driving experience. The Prius c offers a single grade with four equipment levels with price points as follows:

Meanwhile, Twitter was abuzz with fans saying they’d gladly let Chris Brown beat them, seeing as he’s so hot and sexy and can sing and dance. I’m not making this up. This screenshot came from my girls over at Clutch. Read more…
Friday, February 10th, in Harlem USA (NYC), I had the distinct pleasure of meeting popular artist, Franco the Great and I also viewed many pieces of his art. If you’ve ever been to Harlem, particularly 125th Street or if you’ve ever seen some of the security gates of storefronts from the stores located on 125th Street, then you have seen his artistry. Known as ‘Harlem’s Picasso’, his artwork is being displayed and sold at the State Office Building, located, naturally, on 125th Street (163 West 125th- 2nd Floor) until February 29th. If you happen to be in the New York area and you enjoy art, I suggest you haed there to see some of his masterpieces and if you would like to own one, for the right price, as T La Rock said, ‘It’s Yours!’ Down below, I’ve included some of the shots I took at the gallery.
Shouts to Cynamin Jones….. And also to Ms. Drama, who was in the house
