The month of March has brought us some fire music with the phenomenal debut of St Louis crooner Smino. For those who are unaware of who Smino is, place him on your radar with a quickness before he’s all over the radio. A great place to familiarize yourself with his sound is his album, blkswn (pronounced black swan). The album has some flame cuts opening track ‘irish wild roses’, ‘Long Run W Via Rosa’, ‘Anita’ & Silk Pillows. To hear the entire vision don’t skip a track, because the way Smino weaves in and out of a rhythm it’s something to behold. He uses his voice as an instrument and his wordplay is great as well.

He Said He’s a Skater Boy...
What if Avril Lavigne’s punk “sk8er boi” vibes of 2002 could time travel to 2017 to meet with today’s booming streetwear scene? Though time travel may still be impossible, BKBT Concept has brought some of 2002 back to the present. It’s all about boyish charm with a skater boy edge in our latest collection. The Spring 2017 collection represents the intersectionality of streetwear, workwear, and playful edge. Skate inspired leisurewear that can be easily dressed up or down to fit the occasion is complemented with clean nature-colored essentials that pay homage to Rihanna’s Fenty X Puma debut.

But Leah Kirsch decided upon a completely alternative use for directing her mind and energy.
