Depicts the style of direction of the Bastian P brand this SS2013.
Kendrick Lamar hits us again with a great project. The visuals to 'Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe' sort of catches the viewer by surprise due to the contradicting tone. You would've never thought Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe could be an expression of grief, as KDot showed us. The white outfits, the serious faces from children, the crying mothers, the sad relatives; everything was set to a very pensive and nostalgic atmosphere, up until Kendrick and his homies leave the viewing service and hop in the old school, white, Lincoln limo. That is when the party starts and the famous phrase Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe finally makes perfect sense. Bringing Mike Epps out on the second part of the video comforts the viewer with a feeling of "grief is okay, let's celebrate." Thank you for the great message Kendrick, that's exactly how grief should be taken care of; by smiling.
Sean hits us with a new track 'Beat It' featuring Chris & Wiz! Enjoy this Summer madness.. it's about to begin. Beautiful women sun tanning, with beautiful sounds.
Hands down, one of R&B's very best videos, you rock our world Michael Jackson! From the wardrobe to the story line to the choreography itself, these visuals are considered to be one of the greatest and most creative. Michael, always known for his long, cinematic videos, stars in this project alongside comedian Chris Tucker with the attempt to get the attention of a fellow sexy lady. As Jordan and Tucker proceed, they end up finding out this lady is involved with some heavy-duty drug lords, which gets them in big fist fight. The way the choreography is performed during the big fight is amazing, many moves being fast forwarded today to Chris Brown's 'Fine China.'
The huge influence Michael Jackson impacted us with will forever stay with us. Michael told us its ok to fight for your girl, it's ok to be black or white, it's ok not to be violent, it's ok to dance as a dude, it's ok as a man to show your love for a cause; it's ok, that is what he taught us. Long live MJ!
The Bastian P team will forever worship great art. This is definitely going in the books as top five!
Bastian P sporter and R&B Superstar Chris Brown blesses every one with a great track complimented by amazing visuals, once again. This cinematic music video revolves around Chris' Asian love partner (Fine China), who is in a struggle to get some acceptance by her father for dating Chris.
Michael Jackson's influence in this project is highly recognizable too; through dance moves and ad libs. Some are even comparing this story line to many of Michael's (Billie Jean, Remember The Time).
We do porject this song will hit Billbaord's Top 10 so just watch and lsiten for yourself! Shout out to Diplo for producing such a soothing R&B sound.
Lately there has been a lot of buzz on JT due to the release of Suit & Tie featuring Jay Z, whether irrelevant or not, it's got every one questioning, comparing, and instigating. As soon as Robin Thicke dropped Blurred Lines featuring Pharrell and T.I. Every one looked back at Justin taunting him saying Robin Thicke's creation was much more creative. Maybe it was maybe it wasn't. We shouldn't compare the two though, they both have composed plenty of hits; summer, fall, winter, spring jams we all bumped and grinded to before. Let's not forget Robin Thicke's I Wanna Love You Girl or Shooter ft. Lil Wayne.
Señorita is one of Justin Timberlake's biggest hits landing at number 27 in the Billboard 100 list. The funny thing is that all these amazing tracks we keep bring up are mostly produced and co written by Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo, The Neptunes. In the Señorita video, you really feel a Latin tone once you notice the dark skins, flaring hot outfits, and beautiful voluptuous women. Justin Timberlake along with Chad Hugo and Pharrell Williams performance is admiring and hypnotizing as they start the famous chant, "It feels like something's heating up, can I leave with you. And then the ladies. I don't know what I'm thinking 'bout really leaving with you."
Just an all around amazing production. Thanks Justin and Neptunes for providing us with a classic!
Great friend of ours, PR/Marketing savvy J. Ryan LaCour arriving Greystone Manor FANGd out. Crispy fresh. Fang Snake crewneck sweater availble at our store now.
Don't you just love a brand new joint? Not speaking to potheads by the way, or maybe. The newly released video for Robin Thicke "Blurred Lines" featuring Pharrell Williams and T.I. is definitely the hottest trio so far this year, JT watch out! These three dudes came together to collaborate and make the "bromance" Spring/Summer track of the year, at least the very first one, knowing Spring just started. Plenty of hi hat's, little 808's, a funky bass line, and a goofy melody automatically depicts the sounds of the producer, Mr. Skateboard P himself (Pharrell). Anything that Pharrell touches is golden in sound, and rich in instruments which goes perfectly with T.I.'s persuasive verse attempting to seduce women by telling them what they have and what they don't, and what they should be going for. Typical, old school playa!
Robin Thicke is very admirable because he always finds a new sound but still keeps the style he roots from. The awesome falsettos and high notes speak clearly to all the females, not only in the video, but those watching. Eventhough the video is at one setting the whole time, the beautiful models and props such as the huge dice and brush T.I. uses to comb the models' hair engages the viewer to see, "what's next?" Not to mention the ballons that state "ROBIN THICKE HAS A BIG D," hmm wonder what that means?
It's a great idea to have the whole video on a white backdrop because all the attention is on the artists and what they are wearing. We definitely need to make a sick, foil, Bastian P sweatpant like the one Pharrell is wearing; way too nasty (in a good way).
Many have seen the famous picture shown above, and most thought it was either our co-founder Sebastian or Chris Brown himself; all of you are wrong. Bastian P sporter and FANG don Emilio Ramos depicted his love for painting and art itself in a mini-documentary he shot on a trip to Paris, France. It seems as if this "trip" was actually a spiritual enlightenment, and we definitely dig it. The soundtrack is instrumentals from "Blessed" by Schoolboy Q, which sets a deep-thinking tone. Emilio is shown goofing around Paris while narrating his new found love of painting, which is phenomenal knowing he only has been doing it for 4 months. Towards the end of the documentary, he actually stops by a graffiti art street and marks his first signature in Europe. The whole spray-painting process is sped up to admire his natural skills and the development of a great piece. At the end you're like, "Did he really just do all that?"
Emilio could've not been crispier without our FANG pullover. Fine Authentic Necessary Goods is exactly what us and Mr. Ramos provide. Bastian P welcomes great artists like such, keep it up broham! And never stop rockin' FANG you're the Don.
Juicy J comes out with another "turn up" song that we will all most likely party to in about two weeks while drunk. Big Sean and Young Jeezy are the perfect collaboration partners for this song, Big Sean being the "cool" ladies man, Jeezy the turnt up snow man. Spot the Finally Famous Lion snapback that Big Sean just released, pretty fresh. Still need some Bastian P/FANG in here though. SHOW OUT!
