Crucial Conflict Dropping The Final Tic 2012?

| September 26, 2011 | 2 Comments

Following in the footsteps of artists like Raekwon, Twista and Jay-Z; Crucial Conflict is releasing a follow up to their classic album The Final Tic, entitled The Final Tic 2012.

Earlier today, Cru Con member Wildstyle took to his twitter to announce the album’s inception and hinted that the countdown for its release had begun. Details are still sketchy at this time, but I know the fans have been waiting on this one. Can the album live up to its lofty expectations? Only time will tell.

 


Bru’s News: Yesterday’s Losers

| September 26, 2011 | 0 Comments

You are warmly invited to view Yesterdays Losers; a multimedia collection of paintings, installments and sculptures I put together, in which I pay homage to American pop culture. In Yesterday’s Losers, I focus on the merging of one’s so-called youthful “flaws” with the embodiment of a relatively sought-after lifestyle; conspicuous and complex. The overall aesthetic of this anthology is a penetrating scope into ideas and dreams. This exhibition is curated with the hopes that you will recognize yourself, analyze yourself, and commend yourself on being yesterday’s loser who is now today’s hero. We hope that you will come and enjoy my artwork on opening night of October 14th.

Here we find the Coldest one joining Kids These Days for a performance, as well as some behind the scenes footage with The Cool Kids and Timbuck2.
