Alternate Designs for the Value Menu Tour

When Dho initially hit me up about doing the flyer, we talked about a couple different ideas. His suggestion, which ended up being used, was the idea to replicate a McDonald’s menu. At first, I wanted to make an old school-looking drive thru menu, but I nixed that idea after not finding the appropriate imagery. But after creating Dho’s idea, I put together the paper bag joints. These were supposed to look like the McDonald’s to-go bags like the ones below…

Even though they didn’t pick either one of these, I thought they turned out dope & I really wanted to share them with the world. Most of the time, I save designs that don’t get picked, because they can easily be used again by changing the text or picture, but for some reason, I don’t see myself doing a lot of McDonalds-inspired flyers in the future. & if I do, I guess it’s back to the drawing board…

If you are on the west coast, make sure you check out one of these shows. They are guaranteed to be bonkers…

Jozeemo Smacks Internet Thug, Then Explains Why

The first time I caught the Jozeemo video on WSHH, it didn’t surprise me much, honestly. That dude is Durham, through & thru, so to see him smack some cat up seemed pretty customary.

Check out this video, filmed by the homie Kaze, highlighting the beatdown, it’s history, and what kinda new music Jozeemo has coming out soon…
