Monday Spotlight: MUSIC: Beedie

Lately, it seems as though Pittsburgh has become the new powerhouse for talented hip-hop artists. Pittsburgh rapper Beedie, is a prime representation of this new hip-hop revolution. The 24-year-old rapper, born Brian Green, has gained a following of loyal fans through his music since 2007.  
Originally from New York City, Beedie's lyrical lexicon is reminiscent of classic New York hip-hop.  Before moving to Pittsburgh, Beedie was skilled in piano, guitar and bass and used these sounds to influence his music.
Beedie officially debuted as a rapper alongside Mac Miller in the duo The Ill Spoken. After The Ill Spoken, Beedie continued to release music as part of the East End Empire, a conglomerate of Pittsburgh rappers, before forming the duo Varsity Squad with rapper Jon Quest. Since debuting, Beedie has released several projects, including the critically acclaimed “The Beat Bully" LP.

In 2012 Beedie released "Above The Weather", a free EP featuring production from Buckwild, Statik Selektah, ID Labs, among others. He has been touring non-stop to promote the new project.
The music released by Beedie helped him secure placement in various local publications, including JENESIS Magazine’s coveted music cover in 2011. The magazine also tapped Beedie a year later as one of five Pittsburgh rappers to succeed on a national level. His music has also been covered by notable media such as Complex, XXL, Hip Hop DX, 2DopeBoyz, Smoking Section, DJ Booth, etc.
His latest projects include music videos from the "Above The Weather" EP, including the zombie apocalyptic video "Miss Me"  and the trippy animated space journey "The Cloud Life" feat. Gene Stovall.    Beedie has upcoming features with Sean Price & T. Mills, and has been in the studio working with legendary producer Buckwild from DITC crew.

Back from the holiday vortex known as Christmas and what a snow storm we've had!  Still, that's no excuse not to flaunt your winter's finest apparel.  I love this picture - look at those fabulous fur coats and hats, perfect for a cold snowy day much like we've been having.  Hope you all had a good holiday :)


Throwback Thursday: Christmas Glamour

One of my favorite things to do during the holidays is watch old Christmas movies.  Mainly because they're just so romantic and pretty, and the wardrobe is usually fantastic! Nowadays you never see women in gorgeous gowns, elaborate costumes, or men in tuxedos - we're too busy having ugly sweater parties.  Maybe next Christmas I'll throw a Glamorous Christmas Party?  Take a look at these amazing Christmas outfits and have yourself a Merry Little Christmas.....
