Complex Situation: Wiz Khalifa Reps JA (and Mavado)

Words by Jesse Serwer


No surprise seeing rap’s newest bonafide star Wiz Khalifa on the cover of the new Complex Magazine (A publication, as it happens, currently under the art direction of LargeUp family member Brent Rollins).  The kid, who’s about to drop one of the most anticipated rap albums of the year next week, has already been out front on Rolling Stone. Wiz’s attire took us for a loop, though: he’s rocking the Gully squad T-shirt from our peoples RepJA. We’ve never known Wiz to be much of a dancehall head (though he did rhyme over Alborosie’s “Still Blazin” on his Kush & Orange Juice mixtape) so we’re curious to know if this is a deliberate homage to Mavado, or just a happy accident. If so, we’d like to see those two lighting one up in the studio before the summer comes. With all due apologies to Nas and Jr. Gong, we’re still waiting for that crucial collaboration that brings reggae/hip-hop crossover back to the forefront.

Head Ova Heels: Jordans X Stilettos

Words by Jason “J-Rockaz” Orford


Generally speaking, the world of hiphop and street-style has been driven by the male perspective. But real heads know that every now and then you’ll spot a honey dip rocking a pair of kicks so fresh you’re forced to ask for her name, middle name, number, zodiac, email, permanent address, blood type…alright, I’m bugging a bit. But this year Valentine’s fell in Fashion Week, so we here at LargeUp have a suggestion for all you dudes that love the ladies in your lives (especially if she’s the dancehall queen/fashion forward type). AIR JORDAN STILETTOS.
