Vibe Check #50: JEFF CHANG & FAVIANNA RODRIGUEZ DISCUSS THE STEPS TO RACIAL RECONCILIATION

EThis week's episode welcomes guests Jeff Chang and Favianna Rodriguez of the Cultural New Deal. The organization serves as a call for each of us to transform our personal, institutional, and global thinking in the pursuit of cultural and racial justice. Before diving into the meat and potatoes of the conversation, Jeff and Favianna provide us with some additional background on the Cultural New Deal. Talk then shifts to the artists and culture bearers of color, whose voices have been excluded from the arts and culture sector in the United States. As the Cultural New Deal aims to revitalize arts and culture in the US, and center the voices of those previously unheard, the organization is providing steps on how to work towards racial reconciliation. This begins by thinking locally and giving people the tools to organize. Throughout the episode, you will find out how to get involved with the Cultural New Deal and hear more on regaining communities by both organizing and promoting people of color.

Vibe Check #49: KIERSEY CLEMONS ON BLACK HORROR FILMS MIRRORING RACISM IN AMERICA

EActress Kiersey Clemons joins us today on the latest episode. Clemons, who plays Shoshanna Meadows in new horror-thriller Antebellum, takes some time to touch on the parallels between Black horror films and racism in America. Led by Jordan Peele, the Black thriller genre has gradually transitioned into the mainstream, as stories of Black individuals being terrorized by white people ultimately mirror the horrifying experience of being Black in America today. During the podcast, Clemons delves into how Hollywood previously chronicled such narratives using a lens of comedy through shows like The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Elsewhere in the episode, the Antebellum actress discusses her affinity for secondhand clothing and how she recently gave away a portion of her own wardrobe to fans on Instagram. In closing, she shares how her mood admittedly affects what she chooses to wear. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

The Dropcast #127: WhenSmokeClears Founders Weigh in on Virgil Abloh’s New Whip

EWhenSmokeClearsis a jewelery and fashion brand based in Los Angeles. Known for their varsity cardigans and “Radiant Heart” patches, the label was nearly destroyed in the nascent stages of their growth when a blaze took over the team’s apartment in their former New York base. Now, true toits name, the brand is thriving in LA,where it’s made the“Radiant Heart” logo a signature part of its aesthetic; one that speaks to the ability to overcome adversity by radiating love and positivity. You can check out their online store (and a new pair of patchwork-detailed jeans)here. We invited founders of the brandThermalandKsaceto join host Noah Thomas to weigh in on some of the week’s hottest releases:the paisley Community Garden Dunks (“they look like something John Mayer would like”), Reebok’s divisive spin on the Chelsea boot, YEEZY slides, Vetements’ self-troll, Travis Scott’s high-calorie collab with McDonald’s, and Virgil Abloh’s new Mercedes.

Vibe Check #47: Hit-Boy Drops In To Discuss What Makes a Super-Producer Tick

EThis week we welcome rapper, producer, singer and songwriter, and record label ownerHit-Boy. Hit-Boy’s moniker isn’t even remotely hyperbolic, the California-born producer’s credits include Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “N***** in Paris”, “Trophies” by Drake, “Clique” by GOOD Music, “Racks in the Middle” by Nipsey Hussle, “Sicko Mode” by Travis Scott, and “Sorry” by Beyoncé, among many others.

On The Record: Tommy Hilfiger

EFor almost 40 years, Tommy Hilfiger has changed how young people around the world dress. Pushing the boundaries of what a fashion business looks like commercially as a true global brand that just last year generated $4.7 billion dollars in revenue. Business aside, the storied American brand reshaped what, and especially who, drove influence among youth culture. He was a pioneer in seeing musicians, especially hip hop artists, as powerful marketing vehicles that could culturally, and financially, create value for the business. First it was Grand Puba from hip hop band Brand Nubian, who shouted out the brand in a song with Mary J. Blige. Then came the rest. Britney Spears, Lenny Kravitz, Aaliyah, Destiny’s Child, Snoop Dogg the list goes on. Remember, this was at a time when fashion brands refused to work with hip hop artist, dismissing them as drivers of youth culture, and believing a too close association with predominantly black artists would be brand dilution. How times have changed for the better. I called up Tommy who during our call early on in lockdown was on his boat. We discussed it all, from the early days of Destiny’s Child and Aaliyah wearing the brand to what make up the new foundations of a successful fashion business all these years later.

The Dropcast #126: Reebok’s New Lifestyle Sneaker Proves the Brand Shouldn’t Be Slept on

EOn this week’s episode, we spotlight a number standout sneaker releases. Maison Margiela just debuted a luxe reinterpretation of the Air Jordan 4, while fragment design is prepping the release of a pair of Air Jordan 3s. Reebok will soon be delivering two fall-appropriate colorways of its new lifestyle sneaker, the Premier Road Modern, an inline silhouette that is definitely worthy of a cop. In other sneaker-related news, adidas’ Jon Wexler has left the brand to join Shopify. Wex is largely responsible for bolstering the brand’s roster of ambassadors, having added Kanye West, Pharrell, and Beyoncé —just to name a few — to the Three Stripes team during his tenure. Also, we continue our discussion surrounding Walter Van Beirendonck’s criticism of Virgil Abloh, which is hypocritical at best. The episode comes to a close as we segue from Neymar’s potential deal with PUMA to ask our listeners what sportswear brand they would want to be sponsored by. Learn more about your ad choices.

On The Record: Hector Bellerin

ESpanish footballer player Hector Bellerin plays for both the Spanish national team and London footbal club Arsenal where he’s known for his attacking defense style of play. On the field, he’s known as one of the fastest players in the world, who just this month won his third FA Cup at Arsenal. Off the field, there’s a completely different side to Bellerin. He’s incredibly vocal about environmental issues in his interviews, frequently attends fashion shows, just last year he walked Louis Vuitton’s men’s show, after being hand selected by its Virgil Abloh and he was instrumental in making LA streetwear brand 424 the exclusive off-field outfitter of Arsenal. His public persona is in stark contrast to what we’re often used to from football players. He drives an electric car, he strictly buys vintage, and in his free time is taking a fashion business course. He says that Hector Bellerin on the field needs to be balanced with Hector Bellrin off the field for when the day comes when he does retire. I wanted to dig deeper into this so I called him up at his new house in the English countryside. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
