THE DKA LIFE


Take a break and let your mind wander.

Matt Bender

Not sure if I ever posted this vid.  He released it about a year ago, but I figured this might be the right time considering some of you might be studyin’ your asses off for finals.  So here, drink this video up.  Bendey through together this video together of “random shit”.  You’ll see visuals from the heart of East Lansing and other parts of life from a different perspective . You’ll also see some footage from the zoo, the Kid Cudi concert at Royal Oak, and yours truly even makes a cameo, possibly making a fool out of himself.

Check out more artwork and keep up with the life of a Bender at The Vivid Underground.

This has a good chance of making it up on the wall when I move to Miami.

DKA out.

Check his website out. Now.
Check his website out. (After the read)

The homie Zeph just did a major update to his website.  He’s a real humble guy who loves art, sneakers, and quality music.  (Hell, the guy introduced me to Lupe Fiasco before he blew up.)  He’s from Chicago and stayed in Kalamazoo for awhile where Bendey n I did a mural with him and a group of kids, now I believe he’s residing in Milwaukee with his lovely wife.  He still drops by Chicago frequently and Kalamazoo tho from time to time.

You can find his work in Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry, Def Jam Headquarters, various athletes and musicians houses,  Jugrnaut, magazines, and on 106 and Park…just to name a few haha.

I would really like to do a lot more for my blog, like a tool bar with links and be able to have picture links on the side.

Buuuut, I’m not internet savey, so this will have to do.

A new banner from Matt Bender.  Looks pretty dope if I do say so myself. Check him out.  If you are at all interested in a new banner for your website, album artwork, or any thing else art related, be sure to hit him up.

Lil wayne must have been thinkin "no homo"

"No homo"

Oh where to start.  He’s got hot tracks.  He’s got shitty tracks.  Whatever the case may be, whenever the dude drops song, people listen, including myself.  I will say he worked hard to get where he is and he has definitely put in the time and effort and has talent.

…with that said, I believe he has fallin’ off.  Tha Carter III was good, not a classic, but I think his best material was between Carter II and III.  I still love playin’ everything from the Carter III Mixtape I got.

Anyway, Wayne is currently taking a different path and is going to make a rock album.  According to hiphopupdate.blogspot.com , his album REBIRTH is going to drop April 7th.  Here is his first track off the album.

He also did a collaboration with Kid Rock and my sources tell me that, Bendey and Ty are also going to be collaborating with the Bullgod as well.

This already has a perfect caption.

Here is that track:

Even though I’m not a fan of it, I do give him respect for doing what he wants and for going outside the box.  I’m sure I’ll post more on Wayne later.
