I'm in Austin today, seeing art and hearing music, far from my two best friends on their birthday. I miss you guys more than ever but I know you're in the loving arms of Australia. I'm so proud of my brothers, the guys who continually teach me, share with me, and a have been patient with me as we've grown up. There is nobody like you guys on the planet, I am so stoked we all ended up in the same family. You are the very best men and I hope you feel incredible love today.
Who killed Bambi?
Thank you @BRVDLEYSOILEAU & @GUILLERMOANDRADE from @424ONFAIRFAX for the illest white coat ever. My favorite thing!
The "Mash" from @AsiadogNYC -spicy ketchup + jalapeno mustard + crushed salt and pepper potato chips ='s ABSOLUTLY RADICAL!!

Never Mind The Bollocks Here's KR @KRINKnyc #NUMBER2GENIUS circa 2002
Let me tell you about @TheNuggetSpot it's my new favorite place. After being told that I needed to check it out I stopped by and picked up some of their fish nuggets and a biscuit. While I waited I asked the staff about a hundred questions and they were probably a little weirded out but they answered all of them with a smile, super proud of their little joint. After eating their food several times, I can confidently say that by the time the summer hits, this spot will be on fire. They're a small, humble team that in all honesty reminded me of when I met The Meatball Shop crew a few years back. I like these kids and I hope they steer clear of slick PR goofies and all that mess...going in here is an original experience I hope everyone at least tries once. Ask them a million questions and try all their sauces...I'll see you there.
Thank you @AdidasOriginals & @lilsweatshirts & @BrockFetch for making me fresh this day.
RE-GRAM from the DESIGNER MAN: @DesignerManNYC AKA Richard Haines AKA What I Saw Today is a dude @MrKimSays AKA RickeyKim put me on to somewhere around 2005 or so, who knows, it wasn't long ago but in "internet time" it seems like decades. We were geeking over Richard's stuff and then Rickey met him and now we're all homies. When I was in Florence last month he said "Stop, let me draw this real quick" and the next day I saw him post the result. I will never not be a fan of this dude. He is one of the most talented artists I have met and every bit as humble and graceful. Thank you Rickey for putting me on early so I could watch this from then...thank you mister Haines for being a living legend in every manor imaginable. They're going to make a movie about this dude one day, just watch. thank you. always.
Awesome forever, stoked for my friend @LeviMaestro who has taken the #InfinityPiece and his vision all kinds of places. I re-found this in my desk yesterday, it had gone missing. Wearing it again today...great little reminder.

it's the little things that make the day...when you know @ErikBrunetti carried #FUCT on his back, gave us all the food for thought and creativity we needed to start a million other adventures and to this day he's out there walking the walk, while the brain seeds he planted grow orchards of ideas - this little reminder was just what i needed today - you never know how far your reach and effect ca go - thank you Erik no amount can ever repay for the creative example you've set forth

I am rich in friendship. I have many friends. @Vashtie is among the best of them. Things are always better when we roll together...there's a reason the world loves this lil girl-dude so much. Grateful for you friend, I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you...and I definitely wouldn't be me without your frequent reminders that, that's just who I'm supposed to be. You're truly one of a kind.
About a year I met the homie @G_Eazy...I am so proud of this dude, he made his own world and now we're all livin' in it!!

in the club like a v.i.p
When I found yung @Christian_Lavery he was standing in the swag line searching for a wave...now he's all grown up -he doesn't bop, he does the money dance -he doesn't sip the Crys, he just holds it -he's in the Penthouse suite but he's leaving early...because yung Christian knows "We don't ride the waves of others...we get up first and we make our own." I'm proud of this lil dude, looking forward to seeing him and his crew do big and positive things. Love the youth y'all, don't ever take from them, just give...because their time soon come.
me rite now
call mr. josh
Me and my bro @BuffMonster hangin' tough at the @SailorJerry family dinner -the big homie!!
Just as I was about to hit mile 6 this morning I looked up to see lil bro @RockieFresh man I gotta tell you...I will never not be proud of this guy. Though he is small in stature Rockie is a giant, I will never forget the first time @HollywoodHolt played the first demo for me, us sitting in my bummy lil apartment, living off Redbull and Pop Chips sent benevolently by the cases, beat up laptops, scraping money together to make rent...I heard Rockie's voice and it sounded like pure hustle, the beat and the track quality aren't what we listen for, we hear that sound, that hunger, the voice has a feeling and I found out what Nigel already knew (as he always does)...Rockie was gonna be a great (and he is). Some of us have no choice, no plan B...there is no net, there is no retreat, those people will always win. Rockie will win...he's not going to "sit one out" never, nah, he's playing every minute of the game. I finally met Rockie in person later on...and I told him right away (the same way I tell him every time...sorry man, I know it must be annoying) I told him my bet was on him. Rockie is gonna be here for a long time...Mano & Nigel said it, Mr. Rick Ross said it, and if you meet him you'll say it too...as I looked up this morning and saw Rockie I wasn't the least bit surprised...just proud. You know you made it when fools see you on the treadmill...I guess you could say today, we were on the gym shootin' together. Keep killing 'em Rockie. Congrats on the tour with G...that's the homie, y'all gonna have fun. #TREATED
I took this pic of @WilliamYan and Grace Coddington at @DSNY opening day...I'm a big fan of both of them.
the latest fashion buzz
YES!! @Alex_Ebert @ESMZeros & @DailySmiles I AM SO STOKED RIGHT NOW!!
LOVE FOR HER EYES
shout out @Frank151 shout out @WavyBone shout out @BrockFetch I'm always so proud to see Brock get his due and see Yams speak on the history of his crew. Frank151 does people solid from Tim McGurr to my #TREATED family, I have much respect for those dudes because they give the kids the microphone and let them speak with their own voice. This year is gonna be big for @BrockFetch I am so proud of this guy for keeping his head down and his legs moving (that is how championships are won) and Brock is a champion. So glad to get back into NYC and this is the first thing I see on my office.
Thank you to my big bro @TheFlintstagram for all the @marcjacobsintl diet cokes and looking after me all week @Pitti_Immagine in Florence. I am proud of this guy and his story, coming from a small town in Georgia to be the huge success that he is. More people who work in fashion and entertainment should be like Flint, he includes everyone, he's always excited, and he's as humble as it gets. My week in Italy would've been a disaster without this dude looking out for me, I only wish everyone could spend a week out of their element with someone taking this kinda care. Thanks Flint, you're really the best.
only one awake 5:30am empty streets italy
