Swing Dancing started in the streets of Harlem in the late 20s and early 30s during the depression. Louis Armstrong provided the sound, Count Basie provided the beat, and Duke Ellis advised, “it don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing.”
Keys n Krates recently released their new EP, Every Nite, on Dim Mak records. Their popular single “Are We Faded” leads this six-track release. This ensemble has a kicking blend of hip-hop and electronic vibes. To celebrate the new EP’s release, the band will start a tour co-headlining with Gladiator and Thugli.
They will make their way across the US from now until November 9. Read more
Two weeks ago, Jay-Z and Beyonce welcomed their daughter, Blue Ivy Carter into the world. This week? Jay-Z welcomes celebrities, super models, and billionaires into his new and improved club, 40/40.
This expansive, multi-level hot spot combines the relaxed atmosphere of a sports bar with the luxury of a Manhattan lounge. Guests can enjoy the latest Knicks game on any one of the 30 flat screen televisions. Or they can kick-back and admire the champagne tower in the center of the club, featuring $650 bottles of Ace of Spades champagne.
The guest list at 40/40’s grand reopening on January 19th included everyone from New York Knicks Mike Bibby and Tyson Chandler, super model Selita Ebanks, hip-hop artists Fabolous and Ashanti, Russell Simmons and (drumroll, please) Warren Buffet! Buffet, lusted billionaire and chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, was even seen throwing up the “Roc” (symbol for Jay-Z’s Roc-A-Fella Records). If Jay-Z can get Wall Street to unwind, imagine how great the rest of the star-studded crowd was feeling? The pictures below can give us an idea:
