I’ve been meaning to get around to doing a piece on all the great hip hop/graffiti/lifestyle magazines of yesteryear such as Egotrip, On The Go, Elemental, and Mass Appeal. Well, just got good news that Mass Appeal is coming back to print this month with issue #52 (the last one out was in 2008)! The new issue features Blake Anderson, from Comedy Central’s “Workaholics,” Odd Future’s Earl Sweatshirt, Todd “Reas” James, A$AP Mob family tree, Bun B’s coloring book, and “The Bombing of a Theme Park Painting in the middle of nowhere with TRUSTO CORP.,” and some more crazy ish for sure.

One of the better tattoos i’ve seen in awhile. This is stolen from Vice who’s doing a series “Your Town is a Paradise” in which they’re encouraging peeps to send in debauchery in picture form to prove how gully and cool their city is. Bonus pic from the Bangkok submission-
A little while ago we did a highlight on Swet and our graffiti brethren, Artillery, from down under also did a great posting with a slew and fury of Swet pieces:
“Black buff, one colour fill and all style. 30 reasons why SWET is one of the best.
All painted in The Hague, South Holland – 2012.
Taken from: 010fuss’ photostream.”
Check out ALL 30 @ Artillery

If you’re in nyc today you gotta go down to KlugHaus Gallery (curated by Melissa McCaig-Welles and John Leo) in Chinatown and check this party out. Mike Giant is going to painting a mural, there’s going to be skating and a best trick competition. And a gang of dope artists.
And New York is lucky to get this party. King Brown Magazine is a high quality art zine/book coming straight outta Australia. Boooooom.
