Video: Fabolous’s Fashion Feature in Complex

For a rapper who’s been around since the days of throwbacks and doo-rags, Fabolous has done a surprisingly great job keeping up with the style of the times. So for our forward-thinking Style & Design issue, we recruited the always-fresh Loso for a 6-page fashion feature called “Splash Forward,” which we just put online.

    ^^

    cute (n)

    but seriously, it took that neurotic jew theme they used in seinfeld to a whole nother self-absorbed level that didnt pay off as far as the attention to entertainment ratio is concerned.

    if there was a message to it that would be one thing, but i dont get all the hype around. i feel like people liked it cos it was the thing to like.

    Good looking out Billz, will definitely check that spot out.

    A few of my buddies and I have formed an informal thinktank with the goal of passing this kind of information on to the youth.

    We gotta let them know we come from a legacy of king and queens and that legacy is not beyond reach today.

    ———————————————————————
    New Denver quarterback Kyle Orton was not sharp during a scrimmage at Invesco Field on Thursday night, according to the Colorado Springs Gazette.

    Fans were not impressed with the man who is set to take over Denver’s offense. Orton was booed after his shaky performance. He’s under a lot of pressure to replace Jay Cutler, who was a Pro Bowl player in Denver. If Orton is not sharp in games, I’d imagine the booing is just beginning.

    *roffles*
