Andre 3000 Clothing Line:Benjamin Bixby

September 30, 2008

Posted by Bossip Staff

 Three Stacks clothing line, Benjamin Bixby, is due soon…

For those who fancy some haberdashery from Andre 3000’s new fashion line, you’ll have to either wait for some pieces to trickle down to eBay, or make reservations to fly across the pond.  The Guardian is reporting that the Outkast rapper, born Andre Benjamin, is selling his new Benjamin Bixby line of classic menswear exclusively at Harrods in London. As previously reported, the line features 1930s baseball-inspired clothing, including tweeds, plus fours, pleat-fronted trousers, cardigans with bold lettering, flat caps and braces. The rap star says he sketched the entire line himself and has visited Italian clothing factories and textile fairs in Paris for inspiration. He also loves shopping at Hackett on London’s Sloane Street, as well as Portobello market for vintage corduroys and brogues

The article explains how Andre knows how much in shambles our economy is in, so he went to Europe where the money is still good. The clothes remind us of Ralph Lauren. Some of it really looks clean, and some of the garments look like someone named “Amos” should be wearing them.

We we have some promotional garments below…

When The Checks Stop Coming in

September 30, 2008

Do you think when a rapper raps about some brand of clothes it makes people want to buy them??? Well it does…

After the release of Busta Rhymes and Puff Daddy’s Pass the Courvoisier Part Two, a rap music featuring conspicuous product placement of Courvoisier cognac, sales of that beverage jumped 20 percent. That phenomenon got a team of researchers and senior author Christian Schemer thinking about how consumers process brand information presented to them in spot advertising versus how consumers process brand-related information when it is presented in the course of programming (such as music videos). In their article, they describe a series of experiments designed to explore psychological aspects of consumers’ response to brand placement in rap videos. (more…)

Beanie and Freeway Are Back

September 30, 2008

Looks like Beanie and Freeway have been doing the State Property thing…

“It’s a beautiful thing,” Freeway said, as he passed on the endless plates of food from Italian restaurant Macelleria in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District. Free and Sigel were fasting due to Ramadan, but most of the State Property crew (save for Oschino and Neef Buck, whom everybody insisted were still down despite their absences) were eating lunch before a late-night performance at S.O.B.’s. The collective has been together making music for the past several months but has only now decided to come up to the surface and speak about it. Here they are again, world. “We all been doing this together for a minute,” Free said, as he watched Peedi Crakk devour some fries. “When we get together, we make good music. It’s strength in numbers. We gonna put something on the streets for y’all real soon.”

We think it is good to see some life after the Roc. In the Video on MTV. com, Beans really does look like he has some sense and his business hat on. They even have Young Chris and Peedie in on the project.

Blades Tax Guy Doing Years

September 12, 2008

Posted by Bossip Staff

I know Snipes has his appeal going right now, but his tax guy is already doing 10 with maybe more to follow….

The guy who helped Wesley Snipes evade his taxes just got busted for … helping people evade their taxes. Eddie Ray “Kahn”, who’s already in serving 10 years for his role in Snipes’ tax case, is in more legal hot water with the Feds for helping people avoid their tax load through something called Guiding Light of God Ministries and American Rights Litigators.  Why Snipes bet on this guy to do his taxes (besides not having to pay them) is anyone’s guess. Kahn claims he’s innocent. Snipes is appealing his three-year prison sentence.

Blade is still on the out’s while his boy the “tax guy” sits behind bars.  “Oil-Can Slick Snipes” already tried to say he was innocent and that didn’t work. Wesley is going to have to pull something out of his ass quick. The tax guy named “Kahn”is doing hard ass time for Blade right now. While he parties it up with Hollyweird.

Crackhouse Cant Stand in Public

September 12, 2008

One question….”Why in Sam Hell would someone book this clucker?” So many more acts are out there, but yet they give this “trash” gigs? Makes no sense.  I wonder if her color has anything to do with this being acceptable?

Amy Crackhouse stumbled into a late night gig at the Monarch Lounge in Camden last night looking more in need of an autopsy than a night at the pub.-

SMH…She still managed to perform. I guess the reason we like writing about her is cause she is not “one of us”. It’s sort of like Chapelles “Race Draft”.

Priest Caught Serving Yay

September 12, 2008

Another priest was gaffled recently….smh

A Catholic priest on the University of Illinois campus has been charged with selling cocaine from his church office and rectory: The Reverend Christopher Layden pleaded not guilty Thursday to two counts of delivery of less than 1 gram of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a church and one count of possession with intent to deliver 1 to 15 grams of cocaine near a church. The 33-year-old was arrested Wednesday at St. John’s Catholic Newman Center after investigators found 3 grams of cocaine and drug paraphernalia while searching his home and office. His bond was set at $50,000. The Catholic Diocese of Peoria says it has suspended Layden. His attorney, Mark D. Lipton, did not immediately respond to an after hours message seeking comment.

He is selling yay to college kids. They should lock his False Prophet ass up forever. He will get more time for selling out the church, they should throw on some extra time “just” cause he using the lords name to move the work…..smh
