Pop Style Pon The Parkway: Godfather

Interview by Kendra Dennis/Photos by Eddie Pearson

Pop-Style-Godfather-2

Every Labor Day Monday, Caribbean swagger and New York style come together at the West Indian American Day Carnival (aka the “West Indian Day Parade” or “Brooklyn Carnival”) on Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn. We decided to bring our street style feature Pop Style out onto the Parkway this year, and the cast assembled did not disappoint, reflecting the mixture of national pride and personal style we’ve come to expect from this most visually stimulating of days. We’ll be sharing shots and stories from some of our favorite people we met popping style pon di parkway all day here.

LargeUp Premiere: Martei Korley’s “Couldn’t Be Wrong” Video

Couldnt-Be-Wrong-video

LargeUp co-founder and creative director Martei Korley is the photographer behind countless classic reggae images, but he’s also a reggae artist himself. Today being International Reggae Day, he’s decided to share this other side of his creativity with the world in the form of his video for “Couldn’t Be Wrong,” shot between his two homes of Kingston, Jamaica and New York City.

“Couldn’t Be Wrong,” off Martei’s Kingston Konfidential EP (out July 22 and available for pre-order today) is “about a long-distance relationship, and, in some ways, also about my relationship with Jamaica,” Martei tells us. The clip, directed by Johnny Dollar and co-starring up and coming singer Sevana, illustrates this theme with travel footage taken at JFK Airport in NY and Norman Manley in Kingston, and high up in the sky above both cities on a 747. The result is a visually stimulating clip that will feel familiar to anyone who’s ever had miles between them and what they love. For more on Martei’s journey, read our interview with him here.

Island Pop Redux: Watch Gyptian’s “Stuck” Video

Words by Jesse Serwer—

We’re not ready to call it the next “Hold Yuh” just yet, but Gyptian definitely has another one on his hands with “Stuck.” Produced by Brooklyn’s Ricky Blaze, the maestro behind Gyptian’s signature tune, “Stuck” revisits the breezy island pop territory that made the pair’s previous collaboration such an epic hit.
