Jah!… Rastafari! Words you’ve surely heard countless times before but words you would hardly expect to hear at the start of an album by one of ’80s TV’s preeminent pretty boys. Yet these are the very first things uttered on “Living The Book of My Life,” the first track on Philip Michael Thomas’ debut solo LP by the same name.

Marlon James’ “A Brief History of Seven Killings” Is The Most Anticipated Jamaican Novel Ever

Words by Jesse Serwer

Marlon James’ A Brief History of Seven Killings (Riverhead Books) won’t be released until tomorrow, but already it’s drawn more attention than almost any Jamaica-set novel since Ian Fleming was putting James Bond to paper. James’ third novel has been dubbed “The Great Jamaican Novel” by The Fader, and was recently the subject of one of the most glowing, enthusiastic New York Times reviews we’ve ever seen. (“It’s like a Tarantino remake of The Harder They Come but with a soundtrack by Bob Marley and a script by Oliver Stone and William Faulkner,” wrote reviewer Michiko Kakutani. “It’s epic in every sense of that word.”) It seems everyone we know with an interest in recent Jamaican history is already reading it.

Fashion Fridays: Clarks x Staple

Words by Jah Banks

STAPLE-CLARKS-SPORTSWEAR-TAWYER-PACK

There aren’t many footwear labels out there as timeless as Clarks. Founded in Britain during the 19th century, the company has weathered through generations of change and trends, while still maintaining a devotion to their iconic boot styles and silhouettes. One style in particular that transcended into the fashion and pop culture world a long time ago is the Wallabee. The list of musicians who have penned a tune referencing the popular “cheesebottoms” is countless: Slick Rick, SuperCat, Rick Ross, WuTang, Vybz Kartel and Popcaan just to name a few. This fall, Clarks is giving us something new to talk about as they introduce their latest collaboration, with NYC-based streetwear brand, Staple.
